Halloween is a treasured time for those who love makeup. We’ve created a few looks to elevate your costumes from bland to bold.

Try your hand out for this more challenging mermaid makeup look. To recreate this mermaid look you will need fishnet tights, the Morphe X James Charles eye shadow palette, false eyelashes, eyelash glue, stick-on pearls, some seashells glued onto a headband, glitter, and blue Hard Candy Press + Play lipstick. The estimated time to complete this look is 45-60 minutes.

Straight out of Arkham Asylum, take on the night as Batman’s notorious enemies. Find you partner in crime to recreate Harley Quinn and the Joker. Harley Quinn’s look requires the Morphe X James Charles palette, glitter, false eyelashes, eyelash glue, red lipstick, and black cream eyeliner. The estimated time to complete this look is 30-40 minutes.

The Joker makeup is pretty simple and only requires some black and red eye shadow, white face paint, and red paint/lipstick. The estimated time to complete this look is 10-15 minutes.

Want to channel your inner Effie Trinket? Try out this butterfly look inspired by this Hunger Games character. This look requires some fake butterflies available at most craft stores, a warm tone eye shadow palette, false eyelashes, gems, eyelash glue, and a metallic lipstick. The estimated time to complete this look is 20-30 minutes.
