It is hard not to get excited when Halloween comes around! Not only do we have an excuse to eat some novelty chocolates and dress up our pets or our children, we can also get creative with our makeup.

For those of you who are a bit of a scaredy-cat like us at Soft & Gentle HQ, we have picked out some “pretty-scary” looks that won’t have you hiding under the covers every time you look in the mirror.

Feeling a bit batty? - We love this batman inspired makeup! Using lots of liquid or pencil eyeliner and patience, this look is very impactful. Pop on a black dress and holy smokes, your costume is complete!

Witching hour – Why didn’t we think of this before? Purple eye shadow on the eyebrows! It gives a magical twist on a dramatic smoky eye that would have Harry Potter falling off his broom.

Pretty pumpkin – Dressing up as a pumpkin this year? Then why not try out this enchanting look? We love the dramatic eyelashes and gorgeous green and orange contrast!

Swan around the party – For a super sophisticated (and slightly scarier) Halloween look, Natalie Portman’s Black Swan makeup has us pirouetting! Try out some red contact lenses and whiten your face for the full effect.

Liked these looks? Then why not check out our blog on spooky nails for some inspiration for frightful fingers.
