If you have high hopes for your Halloween costume this year but are lacking the inspiration and the know-how to create the perfect makeup look to match, check out these video tutorials for the top Halloween makeup looks for 2017 below:
Surprisingly, one of the top searched Halloween makeup looks on Pinterest in Australia for 2017 is galaxy makeup. While it’s not a makeup look that has been on our radar previously, we can see why the mystical and feminine makeup has surged in popularity – it’s just so pretty!
For the complete tutorial for this look, check out beauty vlogger Nikita Dragun’s tutorial.
The second top Halloween makeup look in Australia this year is that of a deer. And not just any deer, it’s got to be a cute one! And while going as an adorable animal to a Halloween party is anything but scary, there’s no denying Cosmo by Haley’s finished look is stunning, and well worth replicating –watch Haley’s full makeup video tutorial for the steps.
The skull is a classic Halloween makeup look for good reason. It’s easy to recreate with makeup and can be done using many products you already own. For a simple-yet-incredibly effective version of the look, follow Chrisspy’s amazing how-to video.
If you’re looking to scare each and every person at your Halloween party, a Pennywise-inspired clown makeup look is the way to go. COVERGIRL ambassador James Charles has got you covered: Check out his glam version of the ‘It’ clown look.
