Looking for Halloween make-up inspiration? Here are some of our favourite spooky looks on Instagram right now


Halloween is fast approaching, which means Instagram’s leading make-up artists are incredibly busy.

Stepping away from natural eyeshadow tones and go-to nude lipsticks, MUAs are digging out their body paints, colourful palettes and scary contact lenses (why not throw in some fake blood for good measure?).

Some of their Halloween make-up looks are downright creepy, others are reimagined takes on their favourite film characters. And, in the case of Irish make-up artist Keilidh Cashell, inspiration has been taken from her gorgeous dog George.

Whether you’re spending Halloween 2019 at a party, or greeting trick-or-treaters at the door, why not do so in style? Here are 15 of our favourite Halloween make-up looks to experiment with this month:
