- Best Celeb Halloween Beauty
The Best Celebrity Halloween Beauty Looks
From Heidi Klum's terrifying skinned-woman to Iggy Azaela’s epic take on Cruella DeVille and Kylie Jenner's Christina Aguilera, celebrities sure do know how to go the extra mile for Halloween. As spook-season is slowly creeping up on us, we expect our favourite models, celebrities and icons are preparing to bring the same energy this year.
While we wait for the impressive transformations to pop up on our Instagram feeds, we take a look at the best celebrity Halloween costumes, with everything from scary to sultry and silly accounted for.
1. Bella Hadid & The Weeknd as Lydia and Beetlejuice
Bella Hadid and The Weeknd nailed these Beetlejuice costumes. Putting a high-fashion spin on the iconic horror-comedy, the duo undoubtedly stole the show.
2. Teyana Taylor as Kitana from Mortal Kombat
Teyana is no stranger when it comes to making health and beauty headlines. Showcasing a sexy but feisty Halloween look on Instagram, she dressed as Mortal Kombat’s Kitana and of course, fans went wild for it.
3. Lady Gaga as Edward Scissorhands
Lady Gaga − the queen of bizarre looks − certainly set the bar high with this incredible transformation into Johnny Depp's Edward Scissorhands. A spooky style like this is sure to give all party-goers the chills.
To recreate this show-stopping ensemble, why not go wild with some face paint and dare to scare? That's what Halloween is all about, after all. Just don't forget to set your face makeup in place for the night with a translucent powder. The Laura Mercia Invisible Loose Setting Powder is our favourite for a long-lasting look.
4. Gigi Hadid as a pumpkin
Unlike her sis, Gigi kept things simple with a classic pumpkin face paint. This look is perfect for those that aren't really into Halloween, want to stay low-key with their look or are pressed for time.
All it takes is some orange face paint and a good black eyeliner. We highly recommend the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner for the job. Add the final touch with a swipe of the Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Tar Pit Rich Black.
5. Heidi Klum as Princess Fiona from Shrek
If anyone knows how to slay a Halloween costume, it's Heidi Klum. Infamous for her seriously wacky 'fits, she pulled it out the bag once again with an incredible transformation into Fiona from Shrek (you can see the entire process documented on her Instagram).
6. Rita Ora as Post Malone
Rita Ora took the crown of all Halloween costumes with her hilarious impression of the rapper, singer and songwriter, Post Malone.
Super easy for both boys and gals to recreate, all you need to get tatted up is Illamasqua's Precision Ink. If you want to add a touch of personality then why not give the Milk Makeup Tattoo Stamp a try?
7. Beyonce as Toni (Phoni) Braxton
We'd like to say Beyonce took a low-key approach to Halloween, but it's simply not the case.
Paying tribute to iconic RnB singer Toni Braxton, she recreated the cover of the 1993 single 'Another Sad Love Song' and oh, did she do it well. So well in fact, the actual Toni Braxton gave her stamp of approval by writing "How do you look better than me on MY album cover? I LOVE IT, Such a superstar! Thanks for the love sis! Happy Halloween."
8. Lebron James as Pennywise
What's Halloween without a clown? This It character is always a popular costume choice, but we're yet to see anyone do it better than Lebron James - his Pennywise get-up is truly haunting. Try it yourself with face paint or a foundation that's a couple of shades lighter, before finishing off with a red lipstick.
So there you have it, a round-up of the best celebrity Halloween looks that you can take some inspiration from. Whether you choose to go all out or stay low-key this year, these costumes are bound to have you looking spooktacular.
