Halloween is around the corner and while it might not be a major thing in South Africa just yet- it’s gaining spooky popularity. Just look at you fav bar: everyone is having a Halloween party. But if the thought of dressing up or having to get a costume together ASAP freaks you out, look no further than the makeup aisle. With some help from Youtube tutorials and a lot of imagination, Halloween is sure to become your fav dress-up holiday.

Become Catwoman

One of the most iconic antiheroines in the comic book world is Catwoman. This feline femme fatale look is easy to put together: slim-fitting black pants paired with a black top is your base, then add the extras such as a pair of headband cat ears and some long fake nails.

Beauty YouTuber, BritanyBear, took out her makeup kit for Cat Woman’s black mask and feline-perfect winged eyeliner.


Take A Trip To Candy Land

If you’re looking for a costume that will get people drooling, then take your search over to the world of desserts. Looking good enough to eat, makeup YouTuber, Nuzah Jacobs, transformed herself into a melting ice cream cone, complete this sugar cone horn and all. For this look, let your creativity run wild with Neapolitan-inspired colours and multi-coloured sprinkle details.

Don’t be afraid to transform your face with bright shades, such as the Colourpop Through My Eyes Eye Shadow Palette and the MAC VivaGlam lipstick range.

Get Witchy

What do you get when you cross resting b*tch face with Halloween? Well, resting witch face of cause! Witches are basically the mascots of Halloween, so get your broom and cauldron for a totally on-brand costume. The key to this look is to look equal parts ghoul and glam.

You’d want to get yourself a pallet that has mystical jewel colours like emerald green and amethyst, so this Botanic Panic pallet from Mac at ARC is perfect.  Don’t forget the gothic black lipstick to finish off the look, try this one from Givenchy, it’s long-wear and has a bewitching sparkle.

Channel Your Inner Cleopatra

The Egyptian queen is always a crowd-pleaser when it comes to dress-up parties, plus it’s a pretty simple costume to put together. For maximum effect, pair your white dress and tie up sandals with gold jewellery (get extra star power with gold hair accessories).

No Cleopatra look is complete without gorgeous winged eyeliner and a pop of gold eyeshadow. Makeup YouTuber, Makeup By Zoua, pulled this look off to perfection. Get the look with with the help of Revolution Jack Eyeshadow Palette and Essence Kajal Pencil.

Dive In As A Mermaid

Grab a few blue and purple lipsticks and a pair of fishnet stockings for a mermaid Halloween look. As done by YouTuber, Sanesh Naidoo, pin a section of fishnet stockings over your forehead then use some blue lipstick on a brush to colour the open sections of the stocking to get a scally, underwater look.

Finish this look off with shimmery eye shadow, glitter and blue lipstick. Try MAC Matte lipstick in Matte Royal and Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick Plum Power.

Show Your Skull

If you want to get your Halloween look done quickly, then one of the easier spooky characters to transform yourself into is a skull. Heavy contouring for skull-like definition on your cheekbones along with smoky eyes and some skull detail on your nose is all you really need to get this look to pop.

Makeup YouTuber, Cantara, created her last-minute beyond the grave look. Recreate yours using Benefit Lovetint Cheek & Lip Stain and MAC 208S Angled Brow Brush.

Go As The Joker

It seems like The Joker has been a favourite costume idea for a few years now but after the release of Joker in 2019, he might just be everyone’s fav villain. Achieve this look with some green hair spray, face paint in white, blue and red and to add some glam, a liquid liner and eyelashes. The Essence waterproof liquid eyeliner is great for this look (and every day looks) as it will last all night long and the precision tip allows for the perfect wing. And for lashes, try magnetic lashes for added drama!
