- 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 favorite 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.
If you're feeling the classic look and want to recreate it this year, then double (or triple) up on your contour for Lydia's ghostly, sunken face and get ready to smear on Beetlejuice's dark circles (okay, just to be safe, we won't type that name a third time).
2. Kourtney Kardashian as Ariana Grande
We love when celebrities dress up as each other. It's like Celebrity Inception! It feels like they're both paying homage and making fun of them by imitating they're most well-known features. For example, Halloween 2019 when Kourtney K wore this babydoll dress, giant winged liner, and the longest ponytail ever to mimic Ariana Grande's signature look.
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. TheSculpted by Aimee Connolly Velvet Veil Pressed Translucent Setting Powder is one of our favorites for a long-lasting look.
4. Barbie Ferreira as Betty Boop
Stock up on the palest face powders, biggest lashes and darkest lipsticks you can get your hands on to recreate Euphoria star Barbie Ferreira's Betty Boop costume from last year. The face-framing curls are so cute you might even be tempted to sport them post-Halloween.
5. Ashley Graham as Jessica Rabbit
For a sexy-as-hell costume that also brings back fond memories of the classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit, get out your best red wig and latex bodycon to transform yourself into Jessica Rabbit. Ashley Graham proved back in 2019 that being pregnant doesn't restrict what you can wear, and we love how confident and stunning she looks in this get up.
6. Harry Styles as Dorothy
Proving that any gender can dress up as Dorothy and rock the ruby slippers, Harry Styles gave us major costume envy last year and we can't wait to see what he cooks up next Halloween.
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 and/or lip liner that creeps all the way up to your brows.
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.
