Top tricks (and treats) for simple and affordable Halloween makeup looks

Create killer looks that don't cost a fortune!


Spooky season is officially here, but creating a killer Halloween 'fit shouldn’t have to cost you a fortune. We've rounded up the best Halloween makeup tips and trending hacks to save you time and money, so you can focus on the Trick or Treating!


TikTok hack queen @elplttt shows us how to create fake vampire teeth using false nails. Disclaimer: this one comes with a BIG WARNING to only use denture glue and to never use nail glue anywhere near your mouth. Here's how to create vampire teeth: using the Makeup Revolution False Nails Ultimate Customise Kit, simply file down your false nails, apply denture glue to desired teeth and hold them in place until dry. Add in some food colouring for fake blood. Complete your look with a dark smoky eye and a bold red or black lip like the Midnight Kiss Lipstick. What a killer hack!

@elplttt shows us how to use fishnet tights to create a scale effect perfect for dragon and mermaid makeup looks. After applying your base makeup, hold the outstretched tights against your face and use a beauty blender sprayed with setting spray to apply BRIGHTLY COLOURED EYESHADOWS or FACE PAINTS. You could use one or multiple colours - or try to create a gradient effect if you're feeling confident! Complete the look by adding some sparkly eye shadow, glitter or face gems to highlight areas like your cheek bones.


By far the easiest Halloween look includes creating a super simple, dark smoky eye, and bold lip, just like @noelleplay combined with props to give your look a theme. Noelle went for a headscarf to create a pirate vibe, but you could use a witches hat, cat ears, vampire teeth or whatever else you can find to spookify your glam look! This idea is super simple and may not require you to buy anything new.

Don't have time to create a whole makeup look? Ruby from Team Revolution shows us how to create quick and easy Halloween eyeliner looks, including a spider web, hanging spider, and a gothic cross and chain look. Try using our new POW liner with it's precision tip, to make it really easy to achieve these looks! This look is super simple and only requires your normal base products and an eyeliner!

The final trick for sprinkling some Halloween in to your look, is to use fake blood. @marisamakeup created a simple, glam vampire inspired look and added fake blood to the corner of her mouth and neck to look like a bite mark. Try the Creator Revolution SFX Fake Blood which has a runny consistency and is easy to apply to your face and body, or try the Revolution Creator SFX Fake Blood Jelly to elevate your 'fake cut'. The jelly-like texture creates realistic-looking fake cuts and can be safely used on your face and body.
