Timeless Halloween Looks

Halloween is creeping up on us. Have you decided on your Halloween look yet? We know everyone wants to stand out on Halloween. If this is what you want then it’s probably a safe bet to go with something that’s more timeless and make sure your makeup is on point. We’re here to help. We put together some of our favorite costumes that don’t have a shelf life, plus some extra Halloween makeup inspiration. Take a look and let us know which one’s your favorite!


When you think of Halloween, what do you think of? Skeletons, vampires, ghosts, and witches? It wouldn’t be Halloween without the classic spooky figures that embody the holiday. The world of hair and makeup has come far enough to allow us to dress up these classic looks in all new ways. No longer are the days of having to wear plastic masks to complete your look. Makeup artistry brings us gorgeous inspiration. Take a look at some of our extra inspiration, too.


If you don’t want to be one of four skeletons at your next Halloween party, how about a movie character, superhero, or princess? To keep these looks timeless we would suggest classic movies like Grease, The Breakfast Club, and The Addams Family. Superheroes never get old, but their costumes do. Try something more creative like pop-art makeup! Disney princesses are always a good choice. Or better yet, villains!


Tigers, and lions, and bears… oh my! How about looking to the animal kingdom for some inspiration? We’ve seen some amazingly creative animal looks recently. This is a case where hair and makeup are both involved. The outfit is less important. If you get your hair styled and makeup on point, there’s no doubting what you are. You and your friends could be a whole zoo of pretty animals. Which one’s your favorite?
