10 Makeup Artists to Check out and Follow for Halloween Makeup Inspiration

Read Time: 2 minutes

If Halloween Zoom parties are all we’ve got this year, it means it’s all about the makeup look



As the 31st slithers its way closer, what similarly draws to a close is the window of opportunity to answer the season’s burning question: what to go as for Halloween while in quarantine? For the go-all-out types and Heidi Klums of this world, planning can go as far as a year in advance (we wonder how that’s working out). For the moderately invested Halloween lovers, on the other hand, weeks or days of planning are considered a job done.


Regardless, the end goal is, to still make the most out of spook season, whether this means still dressing to the nightmarish nines or letting a spooky makeup look speak for itself. Come to think of it, anyway, makeup is what makes or breaks a costume sometimes. Just take a look at Colton Haynes’ winning take on The Little Mermaid’s Ursula or Julianne Hough’s cringe-worthy black face incident on the disastrous flipside.


Running with this idea, know that there’s no need to spring for brand-new products or look beyond the ‘Gram for inspiration either. Those unassuming Instagram tiles are rife with Halloween makeup inspiration from professional makeup artists themselves. Consider this a litmus test for what can work and what won’t fly on Halloween, a preview of what you can put your own realistic spin on or a selection of pegs you can have a makeup artist recreate. What’s great is the local artists included in the roundup below can be commissioned to do Halloween makeup in the future, too. (Why not creep into their DM’s while you’re here?)
