8 Pretty Spooky Halloween Makeup Looks

We all want to ace our Halloween costumes, and makeup is almost always a huge part of that. But, no one wants the skin irritation and acne that can come from traditional Halloween face makeup.  Luckily, the skin-loving makeup you love (and may already have in your bathroom) can be used to create fantastical and spooky Halloween looks that will last all night and won’t cause any scary skin reactions in the morning. Worried that you don’t have the skills to recreate one of these 8 looks on yourself? Not to fear, we’ve listed step-by-step instructions to make the application process one less thing to scream about.
