1. @thegreyhalfway

Sophisticated and chic, here’s a stunning twist on the classic skull makeup.

Could be both scary + sexy, add a flower crown to really top this look off.

2. @tal_peleg

Proof you don’t need to paint your entire face to get into the Halloween groove!

We came across Tal’s creative account a few months ago and love the different styles she paints above the eye – this look is stinking cute.

I’m originally from a small town in the North Island of New Zealand, it’s absolutely stunning and one day you need to get yourself there!

Sometimes I stalk local hashtags so I feel connected and stumbled across this striking Halloween piece by @summer_brons .

She’s taken a beautiful, Maori tribal look and created a beautifully personal backstory to rock this year. Stunning.

• PAPATUANUKU • The last halloween inspired look to round up the season of creative makeup just went live. My creation was Papatūānuku – the land. She gives birth to all things, including humankind, and provides the physical and spiritual basis for life. Papatūānuku is a powerful mother earth figure who gives many blessings to her children.

4. @metztilbeauty

Well, dip me in honey and…

Would you believe that @metztilbeauty used REAL honey to get this look?
(It’s not often you get to nourish your skin on a night out!) This has to be one of the best Halloween makeup ideas because it’s so left-field and creative!

5. @karolinagriciute

Ready to try taking this up a notch this year?

Want something a little more intense, and someone to walk you through exactly how to get there?

This look by Karolina has to be my favourite of them all: it’s scary, creepy and awesome!
