With Halloween a little more than two and a half weeks away, you’re starting to pitch ideas on what you want to dress up as this year. If you’re looking to up the ante on your costume this year, the answer to your problems may be in the makeup aisle at your local drugstore. Halloween makeup can act as the main component or great accessory in warping an ordinary costume into something unique. Here are the top 5 pins of the best Halloween makeup we found on Pinterest this week. Enjoy!

1. The Classic Joker

The Joker without his makeup is like dalmatian without its spots – boring and ordinary. Anybody can dress up in a weird suit and tie. Once you get the makeup spot-on, you really complete the entire ensemble. Who knows? Maybe it’ll look so convincing that you’ll feel inclined to get into some mischief on Halloween.

2. Mermaids and Scales

Although this isn’t necessarily an extensive use of makeup, we felt that this was a great idea for someone looking to dress up as some sort of aquatic creature. Sequins can be an excellent accessory in imitating scales and they add a subtle pop to your overall costume.

3. Ghoulish Snow Queen

You’ll definitely scare some friends and young trick or treaters with this one. Throw on a bit of white and black face paint to create a frighteningly ghastly atmosphere to your attire. This chilling and creepy makeup was adapted to fashion a snow queen costume for Halloween, but it is versatile enough to use with any scary costume.

4. Pop Art Diva

Remember reading those popular pop art comics when you were growing up? Well the influence of those pop art comics have made its way into becoming a popular costume idea for Halloween. If you’re on a tight budget this holiday, this is a great cost effective costume idea for you. Just sport a regular pair of jeans and shirt and pop art-ify yourself with some face paint!

5. Cheshire Cat

This infamous cheeky grin is no stranger to anybody. The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland has always been a fun costume idea, but his mischievous allure always seems to be lost in a fluffy pink cat suit. Use this pin as a makeup inspiration to capture the chilling charm behind the Cheshire Cat’s grin. Don’t forget to smile for the camera!
