​Top Halloween Looks for 2023

Published by Emily Ellis on 30th Nov 2022

It's only been a month or so since Halloween 2022, but already we’re weighing up which looks will be the hottest of next year.

2022 gave us some iconic looks including Heidi Klum as a worm and Lizzo as Marge Simpson. Of course, if you aren't carrying a spare few million dollars excess, we have some great insight into what you can transform into on a budget.

Sugar Skull

Sugar Skull look by Sherri (@thetousledbeauty)

The Sugar Skull look comes from the Mexican traditional holiday of November 1st, also known as Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The holiday is a Mexican celebration intended to honour deceased relatives.

The colourful face-painting tradition adds a festive element to the Day of the Dead and still carries political and cultural significance.

If you do want to celebrate the holiday — in the most traditional way possible — the colours you pick hold significance. The primary colours for La Catrina are red, white, and black. "Red symbolizes the love for departed family members and friends, while black and white evoke mortality and ghosts.

It is a beautiful look to celebrate a rich culture, while also incorporating Halloween and beauty.

Sticking to rich vibrant colours and traditional skull aspects of the look is a great timeless look for the years to come.

Add on a fresh flower crown and rhinestones for a stunning look.

Evil Pumpkin

This look is perfect for those who want a scary face, but also wish to incorporate their own natural glam into it. 

The best way to show a pumpkin while keeping your glam on is by painting half of your face like a pumpkin and leaving half of your face with your normal makeup. 

This is a classic scary pumpkin makeup idea that is a must try. You can add illusions to make it look like crack or you can leave it as it is.

Another benefit of this look is that it is super easy to make it even more glam by adding glitter as a finishing touch. Also try fake blood to give it a gory look.
