Whether you’re trying to find a last minute costume or just love an excuse to experiment with some seasonal beauty looks, makeup is one of the easiest ways to get into the Halloween spirit.
For anyone capable of committing to a full face of Halloween-themed makeup, we salute you. But for those of us looking for something a little more straightforward and quick to do, eye makeup is one of the easiest ways to commit to a spooky look without too much effort.
Whether it’s part of your costume or you just want to jazz up your usual makeup look to get into the Halloween spirit we’ve got you covered.
For something more subtle, add a dainty cobweb or pair of devil horns to your regular eyeliner for a low maintenance nod to the season, or turn your eyeliner wing into a batwing for a cute spin on Halloween makeup.
For something more full on, some red eyeliner can help you create the ultimate creepy clown look with minimal effort.
With Halloween a little over a week away, now is the perfect time to start practicing your makeup look so you know exactly what you’re doing when it comes to getting ready for the festivities.
So if you’re struggling for inspiration, or just need some last minute inspiration to get glammed for Halloween, here are some of our favourite easy eye makeup looks that are anything but basic.
The perfect way to add a subtle touch of Halloween to your eye makeup is by turning your eyeliner wing into a delicate bat wing. To create the sharp, defined details, use an eyeliner pen rather than liquid or gel eyeliner.
