With Halloween approaching, we can imagine that most of you are looking for costume ideas that will impress. Well, to make the research easier for you, we have prepared a list with our favorite scary Halloween looks.


Think pale skin, dark eyes and loads of blood, of course. If you like gory and scary, then this is the look for you. You can't really go wrong with a zombie, and you can apply it to whatever character you want. Be it a zombie version of you, of  a businessman, bride, farmer… Well, you get the gist. Let your imagination (and blood!) run wild.


This look requires time and patience to achieve, but trust us when we say that you don't need to be a makeup artist! Grab a few pictures off the internet, and try to recreate the look. Find a light foundation or white paint for the base, and then use black eyeliner and eyeshadow to work on the details. Let's just say that to achieve this look, you will need a lot of contouring, but it's a classic and great Halloween costume to try!

Dead cartoon/movie character

Inspired by the zombie costume, this look will allow you to be imaginative. Get your favorite cartoon or movie, and change the ending to a dramatic and scary one. What would have happened if Sleeping Beauty never woke up? Is Lara Croft rising from the dead? Is that the Ghost of Jack Sparrow?

Scary movie replica

There are many scary movies that are released each year, and some of them are incredibly terrifying. Choose the one that impressed you the most, and replicate the look. These can be quite easy too. Want to be the girl from The Ring? All you need is a stained white dress and black hair (or a wig) covering your face. Wear a suit with a red bow, paint your face white and draw some red circles around your cheeks, and voila, you are Jigsaw. It's as easy as it sounds!

Freaky clown

Some people are actually scared of clowns, so sometimes you might just need a red nose and white face paint to terrify people. If, on the other hand, you are after a scarier look, why not opt for the crazy clown costume? The look is also trending right now, with the ‘killer clown' terrifying people around the world.
