70 Scary Halloween Makeup Looks

From Creepy Colorful Contacts to Pop Art Zombie Makeup

— September 22, 2014 — Fashion
Once you've got a good costume, the best way to really transform yourself is with a dramatic Halloween makeup look. With a little practice, these cosmetic looks for vampires, witches and other creepy characters are sure to turn you into a costume contest winner. Fortunately, some of these looks are available as part of kits that you can purchase as a whole, or take the form of temporary tattoos that are easy for anyone to apply.

These looks are definitely more theatrical than the makeup looks that you'd wear on a daily basis, but if you've got an upcoming theme party or a Halloween bash to go to, these looks will standout in photos and the dark—especially if you opt for a colorful Halloween makeup look that glows in the dark.
