Simple and Easy Halloween Makeup Ideas

Halloween is just around the corner now, and the time has come to make that all-important decision: which makeup look to go for?

It’s not always an easy choice – you don’t want to repeat what you did last year, and you want a simple Halloween makeup look that won’t take hours to create.

That’s why we’ve put together a collection of easy makeup ideas here at Cosmetify so that you can transform in minutes.

Devil Makeup Red Smokey Eye

1. Devil

You don’t have to paint your entire face red to go as Lucifer this year! A simple red smoky eye will do the trick for an air of devilish mystery. Team with dark red lips, some serious contouring and a pair of horns and you’ll be ready to go in no time. (Image: Pinterest)

Pair with some spooky nail art and you'll be looking devilish from head to toe.

Pop Art Halloween Makeup

2. Pop Art

It looks crazy effective, but trust us, this Pop Art Halloween makeup look is actually super easy to create! You need a good liquid eyeliner, and preferably a decent colour palette, plus some enormous lashes. Draw a few bold lines on the jaw, cheekbones, collarbones, and around the eyes, nose and mouth. Highlight these with a few white dashes, and know that Roy Lichtenstein would be proud. (Image: Pinterest)

Spider Eyes Halloween Makeup

Simple yet effective, these quick Halloween eyes are so easy – great if you're strapped for time! Start by creating some statement smoky eyes and applying some huge spidery lashes, then grab yourself a good black eyeliner and carefully sketch out eight bendy legs come out from each eye.

Complete the look with some seriously vampy lipstick and you'll be good to go.

3INA The Gel Eyeliner

Gel eyeliner is just the thing to create a deep smoky eye with those spindly legs crawling out. 3INA The Gel Eyeliner is perfect for not smudging or fading, so your spider eyes aren't going anywhere!

Leopard Halloween Makeup

4. Leopard

Impressive Halloween makeup starts here, and it's so simple to achieve this sexy Halloween go-to. Grab your eyeliner and fix some feline flicks, a little kitty nose and a few whisker dots. A big glossy mane will polish off the look perfectly.

You can really mix things up with the cat look. A leopard look is easy to achieve with a few black spots filled in with darker brown pigments to give the effect of leopard-print spots. But, if you prefer, a tiger or panther would be equally fabulous. (Image: Pinterest)

Harley Quinn Makeup Halloween

5. Harley Quinn

Take a tip from the girl literally knows how to slay. A simple pink and blue eyeshadow combo, some black eyeliner and plump red lips are all you need for this easy Halloween makeup look. Use your eyeliner to add the love heart eye detailing, and then make sure your brows are big and bold to frame your masterpiece shadow. Add a splash of temporary colour to some pigtails and you’re good to go! (Image: Pinterest)

Easy Witch Makeup Halloween

6. Witch

It's an all-time classic: the witch is a Halloween costume favourite, but it’s not always so appealing to have to slather on a face-load of green paint – and now you don’t need to! This simple makeup look couldn’t be easier to achieve, all you need is a small pot of green face paint or a green eyeshadow and start dabbing it on to the bones of your face. If you want to add a bit of the mystical to your makeup look, try some glitter and super fluttery lashes.

Finish off with some spooky green smoky eyes and dark purple lips and you’re ready for the witching hour. (Instagram: @missbellablu)
