Halloween may be over, but it’s too soon to forget these iconic makeup looks....

Picture-perfect Halloween makeup is a feat that is to be taken very, very seriously. If you’re a devoted Redditor and are particularly fond of MakeupAddiction, then you understand this on a personal level. But if you don’t check out the site regularly, then you have no idea about the greatness that you’re missing out on come Halloween. That’s why we were excited to search through Reddit the morning after Halloween to discover the best looks of the evening.

Ahead, see five of our favorites that deserve to be admired outside of the Reddit world.

1. Galaxy Makeup


We challenge you to find a more mesmerizing look to fawn over. Reddit user inthepines- put together this beautifully creepy galaxy-inspired using an array of products like white mesh contacts, the Makeup Forever Flash Palette,  L'Oréal Paris High Intensity Pigments Matte Shadow Duos in Animated and black and white eyeliner.

To get the look, Redditor thewalkingjazzy used Maybelline Master Prime Blur + Illuminate, IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, Maybelline Shine-Free Loose Powder and Maybelline Define-A-Brow Pencil.

3. Sephora Bag

We get you, Lauraizm. This clever Sephora-bag inspired costume and sparkly makeup look defines a large majority of beauty lovers. To hold her shadow in place, she used the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

4. Skull Makeup Look

This all-out look is one of our favorites for its attention to detail. Tlmsmith used shadows from the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette to add finishing details to her eyes, cheeks and forehead.

5. Sailor Moon Inspired Makeup

Taidyee’s makeup look was inspired by Sailor Moon’s cat, Luna. She used a shadow from the Urban Decay Moondust Palette all over her lid with NYX Glitter Primer underneath to make it stick. For her lips, she used NYX Liquid Suede in Subversive Socialite with Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadow in Magnetic on top.
