When it comes to Halloween we face the same dilemma every year, we’re super excited, can't wait, but have no clue what to wear. Do we recycle last year's catsuit or splash out all over again? When in need of a little Halloween inspiration, celebrities are always a safe bet.
Heidi Klum somehow manages to raise her game every year: and has transformed into everything from a Hindu God (slightly risqué) to a plastic Jessica Rabbit (sounds weird but was so good). So as a means of self motivation we compiled a list of our top 10 celebrity looks, to get you pumped what is surely every makeup lover’s favourite time of the year.
1. J.Lo - Sexy Skeleton
At Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween bash last year, Jennifer Lopez wowed as a glam skeleton. A red lip and golden brown smoky eyes to added a dash of elegance to her skull white base, finished with icy blue contacts for a touch of eeriness.
2. Iggy Azalea - Cruella De’vil
Iggy made an incredibly convincing Cruella for Vevo’s Halloween party in 2013, wearing a bright red lip and arched brows, she did the stylish Disney villain proud. Iggy added Dev’il charm with coiffed two-toned hair, a lavish black and white coat and of course, a real Dalmatian pup.
3. Rihanna - Zombie Gangster
Back in 2013, Rihanna sported a zombie gangster look that suddenly made the standard sexy Halloween costume seem so overdone. And she really committed, painting her entire top half in ghoulish blue body paint. Her face paint was duly glam and complete with heavy contouring, highlighting and flawless pencilled brows. Her light blue lips were outlined a deeper blue to create a bold ombre effect.
4. Gigi Hadid - Sandy from Grease
Gigi Hadid brought us back to the 80’s for Heidi Klum’s 2015 Halloween bash, dressing up as Sandy from Grease. She wore a gorgeous grey smokey-eye with a black feline flick, glossy red lip and fabulous side-swept tight curls. This is Halloween sexy without having to be too Mean Girls.
5. Beyonce - Storm from X-Men
Queen B knows no boundaries when it comes to creativity, and her Halloween looks are no exception. Beyonce rocked up to Ciara’s superhero themed bash in 2015 as the sexy and almighty X-Men heroine Storm. Sporting a platinum blonde wig, icy blue contact lenses and heavily smoked-out eye makeup, B looked like Queen of the Underworld.
6. Evan Rachel Wood - Magenta from The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Evan Rachel Wood knows how to make an eerie look beautiful. In 2010, she played the role of Magenta for the 35th anniversary tribute of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. To play the part, she had a dark smokey-eye with thick voluminous lashes on her upper and lower lash lines, with her lips coated in a glossy blood red.
7. Little Mix - Kiss
For Kiss FM's Haunted House Party, feisty girl bad Little Mix fittingly turned up as the members of rock band Kiss. They gave a sexy twist to the iconic face painted looks and rocked up in racy leather outfits. Great group costume!
8. Nicole Scherzinger - Zombie Cat
Nicole looked gorgeous as an undead feline for Heidi’s Halloween shenanigans last year. She stepped out in a revealing crisscross cutout dress, wearing ghostly face paint, white contact lenses, sunken eye makeup and vampy lips. The look was complete with fake cuts and dripping blood for added gore factor.
9. Selita Ebanks - Sparking Devil
Cayman beauty Selita Banks went as a red-hot devil to Klum’s 10th annual Halloween party in 2009. The Victoria’s Secret model brought oomph to the look by wearing an sparkling devil suit and cute devilish horns. A fiery red was used to contour to carve out her stunning cheekbones an also dusted around her forehead, between her cleavage and on her shoulders, to create a smoked out effect. On her eyes, she wore extravagant red lashes and sharply winged out red eyeshadow, finishing it all off with a red lip.
10. Heidi Klum - Betty Boop
Finally, we couldn’t end this list without mentioning the queen of Halloween – Heidi Klum. Known for some of the most outlandish looks, ranging from cute granny and a purple robot to her epic interpretation of Jessica Rabbit, Heidi takes her Halloween festivities very seriously. One of our favourite Heidi look, was back in 2002, when she dressed up as Betty Boop for her annual Halloween bash. Heidi's eyes were coated in red glitter, with long wispy fake lashes added to her lower lash and topped off with Boop’s signature bombshell LRD, long satin gloves and a whole lot of bling.
