The on-set of the so-called “bear” months herald the merry arrival of the seasons (and vacations) to come. We always like to end the year with a bang and what more better way to do this than through the celebration of two major occasions that celebrate life and death – Christmas and Halloween. October is just around the corner. Halloween is just around the corner. Halloween costume and Halloween makeup are two crucial pointers you should start thinking about by now. Do you already have Halloween makeup ideas?


If you don’t, we recommend that you panic because you have the lamest excuse of not preparing enough for the Halloween season. The least we would want is a boring Halloween when this is supposed to make us forget the world’s crisis for a day. If you don’t have ideas yet on Halloween makeup to partner your Halloween costumes, then here’s an idiot’s guide on Halloween makeup ideas for you.

Skeleton is probably the most popular halloween makeup many people use in order to freak their neighbors and friends on the All hollow’s eve. Well, it’s pretty easy that’s why. If you just know how to play with the makeup and know where to stroke it, then you can be a skeleton girl in no time.


How about this one?I thought it was real skeleton but when I looked closely, that was just makeup. The makeup artists are so great that she or he was able to look like a real skeleton with just a combination of dark, white and skintone makeup. This is awesome, you agree?

Easy Halloween Makeup Ideas

  • Anime Make Over: You can choose from tons of anime characters that you want to mimic for the Halloween occasion. The best thing with this type is that it makes it easy for you to be in character for the event.
  • Mime-Faced Make-Up: Not only is this easy to do, it is also a predictable idea that will come with easy costume requirements.
  • Vigilante Make-Up Creations: If you want something creative without the hassles of looking overly-done, this is something cool to start with. You can also pick a costume from your own closet, like the ones you refuse to wear on a normal day, and re-create them especially for the occasion.
  • Dirty Make Over: Feeling a little out of ideas? The nice thing about this Halloween make-up idea is that you can do almost anything. After all, the idea is to be as messy as you can be.
  • Magnificent Manga Make-Up: This is a little different from the anime make-up idea. In this aspect, you can be little more colourful and heavy on the costume.

Halloween Witch Makeup Ideas

This make-up idea involves two concepts: the good witch and the bad witch – take your pick. The good witch effect of course will make use of light and slightly blush bronze shades that will give a sort of demented but innocent look. The bad witch effect will make use of darker and bolder make-up colours such as dark berry and plum that will exhibit a bad-ass look.
