Sometimes you just need to throw your own creativity out the window when it comes to coming up with a cool Halloween costume. After all, you’re busy and you’ve got other things to think about. But don’t worry because we’ve got you covered with some of the best Halloween makeup Ideas.
For 2016 Halloween makeup looks from celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Iggy Azalea—uh, maybe not Iggy because blackface costumes are never cool—can get you inspired and give you a beauty look that will be the envy of everyone.
Costumes of the Stars
If you didn’t think an “haute couture” skeleton was a thing, Jennifer Lopez is about to turn your world upside down. The megastar used creative and clever contouring on her cheeks, eyes, nose and forehead to put a unique and sexy spin on a Halloween classic. You can recreate the look by applying white makeup to the face, then contouring your nude shade in the aforementioned areas. Check out this photo for an idea.
For something a little more extravagant, you can check out Heidi Klum’s costume portfolio. She goes in this time of year, coming up with show-stopping costumes like this one of Jessica Rabbit:
If you aren’t a huge Halloween head and want to keep things simpler, you can always go for a look like model Gigi Hadid went for last year. Hadid dressed up like classic Grease character Sandy Olsen with glossy red lips, accentuated false lashes, and of course, those signature curls. Take a look at Hadid’s take here.
There are some costumes that can either go fantastically right or horribly wrong, and Marge Simpson is one of them. Supermodel Emily Ratajkowski, thankfully, nailed her rendition perfectly. Using yellow body paint and big blue wig paired with perfect accessories, Ratajkowski brought Marge to life like I’ve never seen. So, if you’re thinking Marge, definitely check out this beauty look.
Now, typically, I wouldn’t tell anyone to dress up like Iggy Azalea—or really suggest following her in any capacity—but she has shown some pizazz for red carpet Halloween costumes. She mastered her take on 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil with a chic outfit, perfect makeup, and a wig to boot. Check out it here.
The English songstress can provide great inspiration for those looking to keep things simple and classic. She showed off her zombie look with some simple white makeup and black around the eyes. This is a timeless costume that’s easily applied and can help you out in a pinch.
