6. Scary Half Face Pumpkin Makeup

Half makeup designs are loved at Halloween and this idea uses that look in an unusual way.

You can use the half pumpkin look like featured or use a different scary creature.

7. Nightmare Before Christmas Sally

The Nightmare Before Christmas is an iconic movie about Halloween and Christmas, and this next idea was inspired by the character Sally. The artist has created an amazing look with the makeup, costume and hair. She has also added 3D stitches rather than painting them onto the skin. You can find tutorials for this online. 3D stitches will give your makeup a jaw-dropping look.

    You credited MY SALLY MAKEUP to some other artist. It’s by @CHEESTARR not makeupfiend. NOT COOL.
