5 Halloween makeup ideas that minimalists will love

The spookiest season of the year is here, and it’s time to put all your makeup products to use and create something extraordinary. Halloween is that time when you can get as creative with makeup as you want and no one will bat an eyelid. But spooky and creative does not always have to be OTT. We rounded up 5 seriously cool Halloween makeup ideas that even makeup minimalists will love.

So get your makeup kit and prep your skin because these Halloween looks for minimalists are all the inspiration you need this year.


Wednesday Addams


Although old, the Wednesday Addams look is probably still the easiest and spookiest of all Halloween makeup looks. Simple base makeup with dramatic eyes and a bold lip colour is all you need to ace this look. Oh, and don’t forget the signature Wednesday Addams hairstyle.


Bat eye


Being makeup addicts, we constantly come across the term ‘cat eye’, but this Halloween, we are going for the bat eye. Pair it with a blood red lipstick to look your spooky best.


Harley Quinn


Talk about Halloween makeup and not mention Harley Quinn? We can’t do that! But does it have to be OTT? We think not. Cover your eyelids in bold eyeshadow shades and draw a heart on the cheek; it’s really that simple.


Cat Woman


Halloween is that night of the year when you can be anything, so why not be Cat Woman? Someone has to, right? Create a feline face and pair it with a smokey eye to flaunt your makeup skills.




If you are planning to dress up as a witch this year, this makeup look has got you covered. It is simple, achievable and spooky looking too. Match your lips and eyeshadow using the boldest shades in your makeup kit. Add a little star detailing. And voila!
