Halloween Makeup & Nail Ideas to Try Out This October

This October, we’re fully embracing the beauty and nail trends that are inspired by Autumnal hues and the spookiest time of the year. 

Whether you’re partying in full costume or just wanting to add a gothic edge to your look, these Halloween makeup looks will take your Hallow’s Eve game to the next level. 

A smokey statement eye

We get it, a full face of makeup isn’t for everyone, but if you still want to embrace the spooky season, a statement eye is for you. 

All you’ll need is a smokey eyeshadow shade, some gold shimmer, falsies and some different colour liner pens. We recommend these 3INA liquid pens in 18 different shades. 

Black French Tips

Black french tips will add an elegant but subtle nod to Halloween which can be worn throughout the season. This Halloween nail idea for both short and long nails, and for a witchy finish, ask your nail tech to shape your nails into a point. 

Pop-art makeup 

This year’s biggest Halloween makeup trend is the pop-art-inspired look. You can keep it subtle with some abstract lines and graphic brows or go full Andy Warhol for maximum impact.

Midnight Lips 

As seen on Rihanna and Kendall Jenner, the black statement lip is back. This 90s gothic look is striking, on-trend and will last all night long. You can either keep it matte, or add a touch of gloss for some high shine. The Smashbox Always On matte liquid lipstick is smudge-free and is super easy to apply.

Red devil tips

Want to try your own Halloween nail art idea at home? This devil nail art mani might just be the one. These nail art brushes from Amazon come in a range of shapes and sizes and will allow you to add those devilish details yourself.
