With the world opening up again, our long-awaited Halloween festivities can finally commence, whether they’re trips to familiar haunts, spirited office parties or simply (but wonderfully) a date with a glass of wine on the couch while on door duty. Regardless, we’ve got a whole extra year’s worth of celebration pent up in us to mark the occasion with magnificently minimal or endearingly extravagant Halloween makeup looks. Here are 5 spell-binding Halloween makeup looks that have our spooky radar spinning this October.
- A Cat Classic
Unleash your inner Pam Beesly at the office Halloween party with this black cat Halloween makeup look. The black cat is a classic Halloween go-to for good reason. It’s festive—cute and spooky—without dipping too heavily into the scary side of Halloween. The cat costume wearer is a cider-drinking, pumpkin patch-going, Casper the friendly ghost kind of gal—and we’re totally here for it. This Halloween makeup look is the purr-fect inspiration for those who want to dress up and look Halloweeny while still being a friendly face.
To achieve this black cat Halloween makeup look, you’ll definitely need a trusty black eyeliner, which is why we suggest our Liquid Eyeliner as the tool for the job. This Aloette eyeliner helps create a rich black pigment for a dramatic effect—easily drawn on for precise, targeted lines. PRO TIP: There’s more than meets the eye to this liner. Use Aloette Liquid Eyeliner to help define a matte upper lip, whiskers and nose.

The past year and a half has had all of us reminiscing of simpler times where shimmery eyeshadow and a nude lip reigned supreme. We love 2020 Victoria Beckham channeling Posh Spice through her signature peace sign pose—it’s glamorous inspiration for those who want a minimal Halloween makeup look to let their costume shine.
This 7-piece naturals palette features three ultra-blendable shades of Aloette’s fan-favorite Eye Silks, Translucent Veil Setting Powder, Diamond Powder Highlighter and Lip Color in Posh, a warm nude, for the ultimate Y2K Halloween look that will bring back memories of denim-drenched Britney and frosted-tips Justin.
- Clowning Around
Halloween is the one time of year where “Did you see her clown makeup?” is a reaction we’re totally going for. If you’re hoping to achieve a more sinister, eerie Halloween makeup look, this simple yet haunting clown makeup tutorial is sure to turn some heads.
The right red lipstick is what’s going to make or break your clown Halloween makeup look, which is why we suggest the Aloette Lip Color in Red Carpet. Flattering on all skin tones with a semi-matte finish, Aloette Lip Color helps play up your pout with vibrant pigment while also hydrating lips with ingredients like Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and more to help create the appearance of smoother and fuller-looking lips.

Sarah Jessica Parker is making waves for the much-awaited Sex and the City reboot, but we’re hoping to reprise one of her witchier roles this Halloween with a Hocus Pocus-inspired makeup look. With dramatic makeup featuring a smoldering eye and enchanting berry lip, this simple but effective Halloween makeup look is ideal for those who want to bring the magic to a Halloween party!
With this dewy Halloween makeup look balancing so heavily on the enchanting lids, be sure to apply Aloette Heavenly Sheen Eyeshadow Base beforehand for optimum color illumination. This pearlized eye cream helps prevent creasing for flawless-looking eye makeup looks while also adding a shimmering undercoat for a soft, iridescent glow look.

This doe-eyed Halloween makeup look is quick and easy, and creates a unique effect that is absolutely to fawn for. This look is ideal for those who want to infuse the cute side of Halloween with magical forest fairy vibes!
