Let TikTok Filters Choose!

So, it’s 7:00 PM on October 31st and you still have no idea what you want to dress up as…Why not leave it up to fate, AKA TikTok filters? Let this trending TikTok filter choose your makeup randomly to put together a totally unique spooky look.

Bat Wing Eyeliner

With some extra flair on your classic eyeliner wing, you can easily transform your look into bat-inspired makeup. For this look, grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Precision Eyeliner and create the silhouette of bat wings — easiest Halloween look ever.

‘60s Supermodel

Grab your 1960s mod mini dress and use this retro eye makeup look as inspiration for a chic Halloween costume. It might even become your everyday go-to liner look. Up the drama by pairing your cat eye with a lengthening and volumizing mascara, like the YSL Beauty Lash Clash Extreme Volume Mascara.

Web Eyeliner

I spy with my little eye… spider web liner! Since it’s a little more intricate, try out this look this Halloween if you’re a daring pro with your eyeliner. The webbed effect is sure to be a showstopper all night — bonus points for creepy contact lenses.


For a look you can achieve in mere minutes, reach for the NYX Professional Makeup Star Studded Face Stamp — it makes it all too easy to dot perfectly symmetrical stars around your eyeliner. To level up the look, stamp star constellations on your cheekbones and temples.

Sp-eye-der Makeup

You’ve heard of spider lashes — now get ready for spider eyeliner. Channel your inner artist this Halloween with a black eyeliner, and draw some creepy crawlies across your lid. It’s perfect for a costume party.

Classic Cat

If you’re ready to take your last-minute Halloween look to the next level, spring for a glam, rhinestone-embellished vibe. With a little bit of extra eyeshadow, some lipstick, and maybe some gems and extra facial decals, you can look as cool as this cat.
