This week, all we’re talking about are our weekend Halloween transformations. As true millennials, when looking for inspiration and researching looks, we steer clear of ye olde Google and head straight to Instagram.
We’ve saved you hours of searching and scrolling and short-listed our top five favourite Halloween heavy weights on the ‘gram.
This MUA who calls herself ‘The Skulltress’ shoots the most breathtakingly intricate skull makeup all year round. Clearly - she’s the queen of all things skull, and throughout October skulls take the crown for top Halloween looks.
We love her transformations and step by steps, but we’re not sure our skills are quite up to scratch to keep up with her just yet…
Ok… so they’re a makeup brand, the bar they have set is pretty damn high. However, Illamasqua have been flooding our feeds with all the Halloween Inspo we could ever want for a few weeks now and we want to try every single one. From full on blood and gore to detailed brow paint, they have a look for everyone.
This aussie mega-babe made her grand entrance into the makeup world by posting RuPaul’s Drag Race transformation videos on Youtube, now she fills up our homepage with incredible and modern makeup looks that are both extreme and Halloween worthy. Not a vampire or fake blood kinda girl? Lucy has the looks for you.
For the girl on the go.. Hitting the Halloween party 30 minutes after you leave your desk? Sophie Hannah is the influencer for you who retails the products to match. She posts super quick and easy makeup and hair tutorials and has recently launched her brand ‘Sophie Hannah Richardson Beauty’ where you can shop full looks and the tools you need to create them all in one place!
Go glitter, not gore. This brand is all about more glitter, more crystals and more outrageous sparkle. Festival season is over, but don’t fret festival baes, you can totally cover yourself in sparkly finery for Halloween and these girls serve the inspo and know how to help you on your way.
