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!
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
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!
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!
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!
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!
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
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!
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!
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!
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!
