Luckily, there are some Halloween makeup trends that are all over social media this year that are totally achievable for anyone. Ready to try this year’s Halloween makeup trends? We’ve got you covered on the trends to try this Halloween season!
Few things say Halloween like spiders do, if you’re looking for a way to add some Halloween inspiration to your makeup or costume spider lashes is a super easy but spooky way to do exactly that. All you need is a black liner to really create the look. Essentially all you do is create spider legs that are stemming from your lash line… easy enough, right? To add a little more drama to the look go a little heavier on your typical eyeliner and mascara for the look, and maybe even add a dark color lipstick to complete the look.
If you haven’t seen it already, some of the big beauty influencers on Instagram have been sharing pictures of knife eyeliner. It’s actually exactly as it sounds…eyeliner that’s applied in a way to look like a knife. While at first glance it looks incredibly complex to try to create this knife eyeliner look, it actually doesn’t require that many products to recreate. All you need is black eyeliner, silver eyeliner or silver eyeshadow, and red liner/pigment. You can kind of play around with how much fake blood you want to add to the look based on your personal skill level and honestly your desire.
