Hello my lovely pumpkins! Today, I am sharing with you my 10 favorite makeup looks to do on halloween.

Instead, here I am today sharing with you 10 iconic and spooky halloween makeup ideas for 2019, perfect for scariest night of the year!
Now keep on reading and don’t forget to check out my previous post: REVIEW // Brightening Set by OleHenriksen.
10 Halloween makeup ideas for 2019
Sophie Turner definitely set the bar really high when she turned herself into Morticia Addams. It’s a classic but the look is golden and is a representation of elegance at halloween. She was absolutely stunning as this character and it made me want to recreate it!
Another Addams family look but they are the most iconic family and Wednesday is as creepy as little girls can get. You can really get creative with the makeup because it’s really her black braids, white collar and black dress that makes her recognizable.
Last year, pennywise was the most recreated character on halloween. Literally. He was everywhere. Well, this year, nothing’s changing because chapter two came out so we have to keep his spirit alive by recreating his iconic creepy makeup (drink a shot every time, you read “iconic” in this post, seriously).
Did you know that Cleopatra’s heavy eye makeup was not just for the look, it was to protect her from an eye disease and the liner which contained lead salt was good to avoid any infection. Why she was a smart chemist! But anyways, her distinguished look is very iconic for halloween and 2019 is not the year when we are going to stop honoring her!
I personally think that skull makeup has been overdone (yes, as much as pennywise, Joker and Harley Quinn). However, I love this new trend of adding a touch of fantasy to the skull makeup. This butterfly one is absolutely gorgeous and definitely made me fall in love with the trend again. It is just so creative and different!
I know that the scarecrow makeup has also been overdone and many people may not want to go with it but I love this idea of associating the scarecrow makeup with flowers and happy thoughts. It’s creepy and beautiful at the same time! It’s kind of like the skull makeup, I love the touch of fantasy!
“Coraline” is one of the most iconic halloween movies and to be honest, it is so good and I definitely recommend it if you haven’t watched it. It is so creepy and so good and no Tim Burton did not write it, produce it or even direct it so please don’t ask me if it’s a Tim Burton movie because it’s not! Anyhow, Coraline and her mom are two iconic and fun characters to recreate on halloween. It’s a relatively simple to look to create, you really just need the buttons as the eyes because it’s what iconic and unique about the look.
A new halloween trend that’s been going on this year is recreating the Poison Ivy look. She is a really famous villain or antiheroine in the DC comics and she is commonly associated with Harley Quinn (romantically, apparently). She is Gotham’s botanist and environmentalist hence why she is represented with the color green! She’s also very famous for her long red hair.
Tim Burton characters are definitely the most famous to recreate on halloween whether it’s the corpse bride, Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Jack Skellington or Beetlejuice. His characters have always facial features that are true to his style and are perfect for a good scare. This year’s trend is recreate Lydia from Beetlejuice also known as the girl played by Winona Ryder.
Mia Wallace (Pulp Fiction)
If you have not watched Pulp Fiction, what the hell are you still doing here? Go watch it! It’s such an iconic movie and Uma Thurman as Mia is such an iconic woman. Her most recreated look is when she overdoses, blood coming out of her nose, heavy dark circles, pale face, messy hair, messy lipstick and of course, a cigarette on hand.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and if you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to subscribe to my mailing list.
