With the countdown to Halloween officially on, it’s time to start planning your Halloween makeup look. Whether you’re dressing up as a skeleton or a classic cat, adding glitter to your makeup look is an easy (and sparkly!) way to stand out. For some last-minute inspo, we’ve rounded up our favorite glittery and face gem-adorned Halloween makeup looks from Instagram, below.

Skeleton Bones

Makeup artist @annalingis created a bedazzled skeleton look that we can’t stop staring at. To get the look, Anna used the NYX Professional Makeup Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation as her base.

Kitty, But Make It Glitter

So you’re going to be a cat — again. To give the basic costume an upgrade, take a note from @katiespearpoint. Her feline fantasy makeup is super glittery, so you’ll be sure to stand out.

Somewhere Over the Glitter Rainbow

For a sweet glitter beat, try this cloud look by @tijerarayemua. While the rainbow is definitely the statement here, the blue lip adds another fun element.

Shimmery Angel Eyes

Go for an angelic look this Halloween and use this bejeweled eye makeup look by @babytiff.mua as inspiration. We recommend reaching for the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Glow Shots in Come Thru Coconut or Highkey Lychee to create the shimmery effect on your eyelids.

Red Dragon

Plan on going all out this Halloween? Take inspo from @katiespearpoint. From wings and fire to the colored contacts, this mystical costume is next-level. If you have hours to spend with fiery shadows and want to recreate this look, we have no doubt you’ll look red hot.

Candy Corn

It’s time for the yellow and orange hues in your eyeshadow palettes to take center stage. We love how @rebeccaa.ann accented this candy corn-inspired look with coordinating face gems.

Spider Web

You’ll want a trusty liquid liner on hand (try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Precision Felt Eyeliner) to recreate this spider web masterpiece. To add that light-reflecting, shimmery element, we recommend the Valentino Beauty Dreamdust Glitter Eyeshadow because it stays exactly where you apply it — that means no fallout!

Colorful Clown

We can’t stop staring at this rainbow clown creation. Use this look as your reminder to pick up a set of false lashes before Halloween. We love the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Lash! Vegan False Lashes.
