1. Peacock Feathers by @sarbearmua
“The inspiration for this makeup look began with the eyelashes. The feathers reminded me of a peacock, so I wanted to include yellow, purple, and blue to compliment the lashes. I took to Pinterest and began pinning photos of peacocks—their colours are truly unbelievable.”
2. Jack o’ Lantern by @sirat.xo
“My inspiration behind the look was the scary/glam Halloween duo. I am obsessed with glamorous Halloween looks with a dark twist, and I wanted to be able to incorporate affordable makeup products to allow the look to be achievable by everyone. My hope is that people continue to enjoy and recreate this look.”
3. Woodland Fairy by @madalynauroraa
“This was one of my first looks when I decided to bring my creative side forward. I took a lot of inspiration from my childhood—building fairy houses in my grandma’s garden was one of my favourite hobbies.”
4. Honeybee by @crystalwangg
“I’ve never been huge on Halloween spirit and all the spooky themes. Even though Halloween looks are huge in the beauty community, I still wanted to be comfortable in my skin—I wanted to create something fun and light which I can enjoy and share, while still being festive.”
5. Colourful Clown by @stjohnnnn
“This look was inspired by my nail set by @allured; having fun nails keeps me inspired to continue to create fun and new looks for this year’s #31daysofhalloween!”
6. Spooky Glam Skull by @monolidmua
“I was really inspired by both Desi Perkins and Luna Fortun for this look. Desi’s half-melted skull was amazing and Luna created a gorgeous neon skeleton look. I was inspired to merge both amazing looks together and came up with this Halloween look!”
