Bring on the Drama: Extreme Halloween Beauty

Looking for big drama this Halloween? Seriously stylized makeup can be just as spectacular as a costume (or serve as a costume in and of itself), and if you can pull it off, there’s no better way to combine gore and glam. Here are two bold, yet eerily beautiful, looks — and what you can use to recreate them.

1. Skeleton Chic
There’s only one line of makeup that you need to recreate this gorgeous, ghastly look: MAC’s Limited Edition Collection with Rick Baker, Hollywood’s special effects extraordinaire. You know him. Think Thriller, An American Werewolf in London and about a million other famous shorts and films. His collaboration with MAC is just genius, and has everything you need to create a movie-worthy makeup look.

From top to bottom, all from the MAC x Rick Baker Collection:

Chromagraphic Pencil in Black Black, $16

Acrylic Paint in Pure White, $21

Paintsticks in Pure White and Black Black, $21 each

Set Powder, $30

2. Severe Glam
If you want to add a little more sex appeal — yet still retain that moody Halloween flair — try this severe, sharp look. Piercing spiked lashes and jet-black lipstick, paired with a nice flush of color in the cheeks, will give you an intriguing appearance that’s perfect for Halloween night.


From top to bottom:

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrate in Iced, $21

Black Spiked Faux Eye Lashes, $7 (use on bottom lash line only)

Yves Saint Laurent Crème de Blush in Powdery Rose, $38

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in Satin Black, $20
