Halloween Ideas from Glam to Fantasy

3 shares, -2 points

Not a fan of the whole gory guts Halloween looks? Don’t worry, we’ve found plenty of pretty makeup ideas on Instagram to spare you the scary stuff. Think glitter, rainbow shades, feline flicks and a LOT of sparkle. If you didn’t want to be a unicorn before, you’ll most certainly want to now.

You’ve seen our seriously spooky Halloween makeup ideas, but these are perfect for those who want a little less scary, and a little more stunning.

Keep on scrolling to get fully inspired by these beautiful looks…


Glam with a touch of gore. Makeup artist Diana Maria slays purple and green ‘slime eyes’. If you were looking for an excuse to rock black lipstick, you’ve found it.


Unicorns are real – at least makeup artist Simone Cleary makes them so with this glittering work of artistry.

Not only is makeup artist Anni Antola‘s look smouldering, the faux freckles are also bang on trend.


These rainbow tears are certainly nothing to cry over. In fact, they’re just about the prettiest things we’ve ever seen! Thanks, Bonnie Macabre, for the inspo!

Reveal the fire inside you with this artistic double tone look by makeup whizz, Bonnie Macabre.
If you’ve always wanted to be a mermaid (um, who hasn’t?) then follow in the footsteps of tattoo artist and makeup queen Anahy.
This slithering serpent is a great nod to the scary season, while rocking some beautiful green hues. Thank you for the snaky inspo, Sarina Nepstad!
Kandee Johnson‘s transformations give us total life (if you haven’t seen it already, check out her Edward Scissorhands video), as do her scary-yet-sexy makeup looks.
We’ve never seen a clown look so chic. Pair bright colours and bold lashes like Abby Roberts for a flirty finish.
A thousand times yes for this bright Halloween-inspired look. If you’re not following mua Vanessa Davis on Instagram, you really ought to be.

Wow, who knew a skeleton look could be so god damn chic?! Loving this look from self-taught makeup artist Sarah New (@sarahnewsfx) using The Gypsy Shine products.


How about going as a fortune teller? We’re loving this smouldering look from makeup artist Brookelle McKenzie.

Who says you need to go down the scary route? Lisa Potter Dixon
shows that you can unleash the glitter monster within.
Intergalactic makeup? Yes please. We’re loving this violet Charlie and The Chocolate Factory-inspired makeup by Liv CR.
We’ve never wanted to be a glitter mermaid quite as much as we do now. Thanks, The Gypsy Shrine.

This is actually quite scary, but those geniuses at It’s In Your Dreams
also make it look really quite pretty (actually!).

Pink glitter by the bucketload is needed for this one. Rachel Leary
created this Halloween look especially for Breast Cancer Awareness.

You’ll need a steady hand to recreate this crystallised face skull courtesy of It’s In Your Dreams.

OK, we’re calling it: Perrie Edwards’ Ursula look is *the* lewk of Halloween 2018 already. Just look at that purple contour!
