It’s no secret that Halloween is a fun and exciting time around here! From trick-or-treating activities to putting together adorable DIY costumes for the kiddos and pulling together last-minute looks that you can easily wear again, there’s no lack of festive fun! With Halloween creeping near, we turned to one of our favorite artists at Sephora, Meghan, for some Halloween makeup inspiration. With her expertise and creativity, she came up with 3 unique and quick looks to rock during your spooky celebrations!

Take a look…

Dark & Spooky

The final look…

Although this one is slightly more labor-intensive, we wouldn’t be more excited about the result! For this contoured look our makeup artist used the Makeup Forever Lustrous Eyeshadow Pallet for the contouring and veins. Kat Von D light 42 Powder was then used as a base, and Marc Jacobs eyeliner in “Fine Wine” created the bold lip color. This look is perfect for those with an ultra-spooky side!


Shimmer & Shine

The final look…

If time is of the essence and a soft magical look is what you’re after (because who hasn’t dreamed of being a unicorn or mermaid?) this look is going to be your ideal pick! We had so much fun playing around with these iridescent and glitter products. For this look our artist used Nars Sheer Glow foundation as the base. For the highlight she used Yacht Life, Confetti and Unicorn from Fenty, and for extra shine she added the Star Lit Powder from Makeup Forever. On the lips she used the Sephora clear glossed mixed with the Star Lit Powder. This look is easily achieved using these go-to products and it’s a quick and fun way to get into character if you have a magical or enchanted Halloween style!


Fierce Feline

The final look…

We went for this fierce kitty look by using the dark and bold Makeup Forever Aqua Color Paint for the black lines. Our artist also used the Makeup Forever iridescent Pearl Highlighter as well as the Makeup Forever High Impact Gloss in shade 100 to create this growl-power look!


No matter if you’re looking to be spooky or sweet this Halloween, Sephora has you covered.
