With the countdown to Halloween officially on (praise be for Hocus Pocus reruns to keep us on track), it’s high time you picked a costume — or a good black eyeliner to transform into a cat for the fifth year in a row. And while there’s sure to be skulls, cute animals and pop culture costumes abound, adding glitter might just be the way to make your Halloween makeup stand out. Ahead we’ve rounded up our glittery Halloween makeup faves from the ‘gram that will surely inspire your All Hallow’s Eve look.
Makeup artist annalingis turns the typical skull and bones makeup into a glittery, skeleton that you might not want to wipe off at the night’s end. This one is jewel-heavy, so be prepared to spend hours in the mirror glueing your life away. To get the look, Anna used NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation as her base — proving that the key to any bomb makeup look is a great foundation.
Kitty, But Then Make It Glitter
So you’re going to be a cat. Again. It’s okay, we understand — but give this look by katiespearpoint a try. This “feline fantasy” makeup look is super glittery, so you’ll be sure to stand out in a litter of kitties.
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice ... Glitterjuice
Beauty influencer Wesley Benjamin Carter takes a glam approach to Beetlejuice for Halloween, creating a sultry purple smoky eye and statement that could easily be rocked any day of the year. The glitter takes it over the top, Wesley using it to accentuate his hairline, contour and lips. To get this look he used NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk as concealer to get that ghostly, Beetlejuice look.
Killer (Glitter) Clown
Makeupby_makenzie makes a killer clown look downright glam in the makeup look ahead. She pairs silver and red glitter with dramatic black lines, creating a classic spooky clown look that’s perfect for Halloween.
Somewhere Over the Glitter Rainbow
If your costume is all about the makeup look — give this look by tijerarayemua a try. She creates a dreamy cloud and rainbow eye look using different glitters and ties it all together with a matching blue smoky eye and lip. Even though her eyes are the focal point, the rest of her look is simple and stunning — making this a great option for anyone who’s eyeshadow obsessed.
Glittery Skull Angel Goodness
Sometimes you can’t decide whether you want to be a skull or an angel — that’s where this look by make_up_inna comes in. The makeup artist takes it to a new level with the added glitter and jewels, it’s the mashup you never knew you needed but can’t look away from.
Came Thru Drippin’ (In Glitter)
If being dripped in glitter is your aesthetic (I mean why wouldn’t it be?), then give this look by makeupby_makenzie a try. Half her face is flawlessly made up (she uses Maybelline Superstay Foundation) while the bottom half is covered in glitter — creating a glitzy glam makeup look that’s sure to turn heads.
