Halloween makeup doesn’t always have to be super dark. This look incorporates a ton of colours and still fits the theme perfectly. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to use that bright and colourful eyeshadow palette you have laying around. Start with a white base and add every colour you like to eyes, cheeks and lips. If you want it take this look to the next level, use eyelash glue to create a border of pearls around your face. False lashes and spooky contacts will pull it all together.
