18 Of The Scariest Halloween Makeup Ideas That Will Spook You This Season

posted in: Makeup | 5

After taking a short break, I am back! This break wasn’t planned but something personal came up and taking a break from the blog was the only way forward. Sometimes stepping back and giving yourself breathing space is the best way to deal with things. After all, mental health comes before all the money in the world! Enough blabbering from me, on to more exciting topics and by that I mean Halloween!

Halloween is a time of fun and a time when you can be whoever you want to be! There’s no better time to spook your friends and family than Halloween! I have put together here some of the scariest, creepiest makeup ideas for this season. If gory and scary is your thing, then these ideas are the inspiration you need!

1. Paper Clip Face

This look is gory all the way and a work of art! When I look at this, the voice in my head is on repeat telling me that it’s only makeup! Your friends and family will definitely be creeped out by this Halloween look!


2. Dark Siren

Why be a mermaid when you can be a dark one?! Mermaids were always pretty and good, that is until the movie Siren came out! With a fun, dark twist they’ve brought a new dynamic to the underworld. Have fun this Halloween recreating that dark, mysterious dangerous mermaid, AKA a Siren!


3. Faceless

This Halloween look may not be dark, but it’s certainly creepy! The makeup is done so well that it’s hard to see there was once a face there at all! If blood and gore aren’t for you, but you still want to create a scene, this look will do the trick. You’ll certainly have heads turning!


4. Sewn Up Face

One of the scariest gory looks I’ve ever seen! Honestly, I’m struggling to look at it, and even though it’s all makeup, it looks like her eyes are being stretched open. I can’t imagine that’s too comfortable, but effective it is!


5. Bent Neck

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN 2 of 31: Bent Neck Lady So who has seen The Haunting of Hill House? Bent Neck Lady is my worst nightmare. All the scenes with her are the WORST and then there is THAT scene where it all comes together and it’s like 🤯💀 if you know, you know. I’m not going to lie last night’s live doing this look was ROUGH. Lol but we had some laughs that’s for sure. That little neck lump is way harder than you think 😂 at first I tried a tape ball bahah then I tried scar wax THEN everyone said to layer latex and cotton balls and that got the job done! Also that crappy Tarte eyeshadow palette I got a few months back in boxycharm worked great for contouring. I ended up ruining some of my makeup brushes so I need to put together a Halloween makeup only “kit” so I stop ruining things haha. My @ttdeyeofficial Halloween contacts aren’t here yet so I did a little editing to white out the eyes. Spooky. Who noticed I forgot to take out one earring? 🤦🏼‍♀️😂 As always, you can shop this look on my Amazon page – link in bio. Cheers to stepping out of your comfort zone🍻 #bentnecklady #bentneckladymakeup #thehauntingofhillhouse #fx #fxmakeup #fxmakeupartist #sfxgore #sfxmakeup #sfxmakeupartistinthemaking #underratedmuas #ghostmakeup #zombiemakeup #31daysofhalloween #31daysofmehronhalloween #31daysofhalloweenmakeup #creepymakeup #scaryhalloweenmakeup #halloweenmakeupideas #halloween2020 #halloweenmakeupchallenge #mehronparadise #explorestlouis #stlouisgram #spookyseason

If you’ve seen The Haunting of Hill House then you’ll appreciate this look! Perfect for Halloween, the makeup is creepy and scary. However, it’s the lump on the neck that is really the killer! Just looking at it gives me the shivers!


6. Halloween Tooth Fairy

If you don’t want to give your kids nightmares for life, don’t show them this tooth fairy! It’s not the pretty fairy in pink that we love! Ye, it’s a tad creepier and as for the one eye- eew!


7. Hellraiser

He may not be good or bad in the film, but judging from the look alone, I would say he’s evil all the way! This is one of the hardest looks to pull off and it’s done amazingly. The nails really look like nails and just looking at the image is painful!


8. The Exorcist

The Exorcist is not for the fainthearted and neither is this makeup look! If you’ve watched the film, seeing this makeup look will bring back all the horror and darkness. I haven’t watched The Exorcist, but seeing the trailer was more than enough creepiness for me!


9. Double Eyed Clown

While I don’t suffer from Coulrophobia (fear of clowns), after seeing creepy clowns, I definitely get why some do! 2 pairs of eyes is a creepy look on anyone, add a clown and it takes an even creepier look!


10. Snake Queen

One of the most original makeup ideas is this snake queen wrapping around her face, through her eyes and mouth. Just remember to keep your mouth open for the best effect! Ye, that might be a little struggle! However, I love the idea and being original is always more fun IMO!


11. Zombie

Creepy all the way! If there was such a thing as zombies, this is how a radioactive one would look! I wouldn’t like to meet one of these in real life and neither on Halloween!


12. WTH!

I hope no offence was taken from the name, but I couldn’t think of any better way to describe this look! Obviously, the hand is not real, but it seriously looks it! Looking at this look makes me feel sick- a Halloween winner? I’d say a big yes!


13. Nosferatu

Nosferatu is one of the oldest horror vampire movies, yet still wins as one of the creepiest ones. Even if you haven’t watched the movie, judging from this makeup look alone you can see the horror in it! Nosferatu is not someone I want to meet on Halloween!


14. Living Dead Girl

The chilling part to this look is hands down the eyes. Although they wouldn’t be scary on their own, they tie the look together and give that dead, empty look to her! To complete this zombie look, don’t forget to spray your hair blue.


15. Pale Man

👐🏻PALE MAN👐🏻 Day 5 of #31daysofhalloween This was another look I had always wanted to do, so when I saw @rio.tew do an amazing Pale Man, I got inspired to finally try it out myself! Go check out her Pale Man too, she did such an awesome job! . I made my own prosthetics using liquid latex and flour – thanks to following @ellimacssfx pale man tutorial😆 . When I tell you this was SO complicated to do! I needed assistance from my awesome sister to help me pick up tools and even paint the eyes on my hands 🤣 but we got there in the end and I’m so happy with how it turned out! .

Another dark horror movie for you! This grotesque child eater has his eyes in the palms of his hands! It doesn’t more evil than this. However, it’s one of the harder looks to pull off and will take time. If you love playing around with FX makeup you will love creating this look!


16. Untreatable

She sure has come down with something- it would seem monster hood! You don’t always need to take an idea from a movie. Creating your own can be more fun and is definitely more original!


17. Boils

This may not be gory and blood-curling, but it’s disgusting and freaky! Not only that, but it’s also highly realistic. Most of the ideas here are science fiction- this one is not! Every so often, stories like this really do pop up on the news!


18. Person or Skeleton?

Underneath all of us is a skeleton! Whether we like it or not that’s the reality. You can bring it to life this Halloween with a fun half person, half skeleton look!

My Thoughts

After putting this blog post together I think I can officially say that I am staying home this Halloween! These images of scary makeup have creeped me out enough!:) No thanks to meeting these people in real!

That being said, I hope these scary makeup ideas have given you lots of inspiration for your Halloween this year. One thing to never forget is to have fun!

Happy Halloween and Ghostly Greetings!

    Hello Hollie, 

    It’s nice to be on your page and having you back is very good, I hope you are fine with wherever you were dealing with. These Halloween make ups are all shades of scary and I am actually considering going with one of these. This would be the first Halloween that I will be getting involved in as an adult. Thanks for the ideas.

      Aww, thanks. Thankfully, things have calmed down.

      Good for you- You’re never too old to have fun!

    OOh, you got me scared! 

    I really admire all the work put into such makeup. Because it takes talent and a lot of work to realize such masterpieces. The boils gave me goosebumps, I couldn’t look at it twice. It is pretty nasty!

    But the most realistic for me was the paper clip face, it looks like the real deal. If I come across someone looking like that I will not be too scared but I will tend to help that person. That until I realize it is fake.

    The other ones are pieces of art and they are all spooky!

    Thanks

    Halloween season is a time that people showcase different types of costumes. While some are really friendly others are extremely scary that you’ll think it’s actually real. I’ve heard from friends who’ve celebrated this eason and they all come up with amazing comments about Halloween. I’ve seen a lot of scary costumes but never have I seen one that’s as scary as these ones posted here
