Halloween is this weeeeekend!!! I have not actually went to a proper Halloween party since my first year of university. That year I organised a fairly big party with around 150 guests. It was pretty successful judging by the high turnout, wasn’t it?. Oh, and did I mention that I did it in my flat? Well.. far away are those times but this does not mean that this year I cannot celebrate it. I have been hoping to go to a cool party on the 31st of October for the past two years now and finally it looks like this year I will make it to one! But as I am a woman and of course that I have NO IDEA what will I be this year, what am I going to wear and so on, I started hunting for inspiration. I thought that starting from my makeup would be the easiest and fastest way of deciding. There are so many ideas out there, but hopefully this article will be of help to all of you as well that are undecided just like me.
Easy Difficulty Makeup Ideas
If what you want is not to have to buy new makeup products, nor to spend half a day doing it, the below suggestions should do the trick. They will require some time, LOTS of patience and practice. Also make sure that you prepare your face to keep the makeup from spreading everywhere and to fix it once you finish. You can start from these designs, but if you can and want to, let your imagination free and be creative.

Medium Difficulty Makeup Ideas
Although the difference between the easy and the difficult makeup suggestions I am giving you seems pretty big, in fact, it is not. The thing is that these ones are a bit more intricated and require a bit more attention to details. The good thing about them though is that even if they are more detailed, they do not need to be perfect. The lines can be a bit shaky because overall in the big picture you cannot really see them and they would only just add up to the dramatic effect of the whole look.

Difficult Halloween Makeup Tutorials
For what I have seen around on the internet, usually the more difficult and complicated ideas are the creepier super scary ones. It might be because of all the shapes, shades and effects you need to create. Big eyes, special effects, glued stuff, fake, but real looking blood, teeth or lenses and the list can continue. If you are looking for a more hardcore look, the ones I am suggesting should be of help to you. But do not forget that you need to order your props as soon as possible for them to be delivered in time for the big day!
