1) Start off by covering your face in white paint or white concealer with a foundation brush.

2) Cover your lids with a deep red eyeshadow and smudge it across your lower lash line to start looking like the sun-deprived monster of your wildest nightmares.

3) Continuing with the sun-deprived theme, throw a black eyeliner onto your lids and around your lips. It'll help you achieve super dark shadows and contoursso you'll look like an authentic sewer-wandering monster

4) The most recognizable parts of Pennywise’s face are the red lines stretching from each corner of his mouth up through his brows. Grab a red lip liner will give you the fine tip and control you need to draw these lines with precision. Fill in your lips and draw on your clown nose with the same liner, and you’ll officially look like a menace to society.

2. Pumpkin Makeup Looks

Halloween just wouldn’t be complete without a pumpkin, and is such an easy look to achieve, just grab yourself some orange and black face paints or concealer and you’re on your way.

3. The Spider Halloween Look

Spiders are the absolute creepiest, but when you wear them with a bold brow, smoky eye, and swipe of neutral-coloured matte lipstick? It's basically sexy going-out makeup. Freak everyone out this season with this badass beauty look that'll give onlookers the jitters when spiders are crawling out.

1) As you would, apply a full coverage foundation all over the face and concealer to the under-eye area to make the eyes look bright and awake. Contour the cheekbones and temples of the forehead with bronzer to add warmth to the face. Fill in your eyebrows to get the desired shape you want.

2) Create a smokey eye look featuring dark black and brown shades for a super sultry look.

3) Next, apply gel liner to the inner rim of the bottom lash line and slightly smudge it out.

4) Using a pointed felt tip liquid eye liner (this one is my fave) carefully begin drawing each spider leg one at a time. I recommend working from the nose outward to the hairline, as this helps you better control the spacing between each leg. (The key to creating realistic spider legs here is to make sure you draw points and arch the legs in a manner that a real spider would.)

5) After you have all the legs drawn on with this spider makeup look, now it’s time to make it look 3D with shadowing. Dip a small pointed eyeshadow brush into the same deep black shade that is on the lid and brush off excess product onto the side of your hand. Begin drawing almost an exact replica of the spider legs out from it, just a shadow would show

5) Lastly, it’s time to go in with some white face paint/ concealer to really bring your spider makeup to life. Using a detail eyeliner brush apply white to the bends of all the spider legs, and slightly blend out to give it a more realistic look.

6) Apply a pair of dramatic false lashes to the non-spider makeup eye, and apply a deep red liquid lipstick to the lips to complete this makeup look.
