Use your eyeshadow palette to recreate this grunge clown-inspired look. Go heavy on the eye makeup using a combination of dark and sparkly shades, over line your lips with a lip liner to form a jokerish grin, and use a liquid eyeliner and cream blush to create the clown collar.

What would Halloween be without sexy vampires? Conjure up this look by piling on the eyeshadow and packing on the glitter to create a dramatic eye makeup. Finish it off with a vampy lip and of course prosthetics blood, which is really just red lip gloss.
