This week, we will be revealing five fabulous Halloween makeup looks for you to recreate for your clients along with a range of nail ideas to inspire you.

When it comes to creating the best Halloween look, there’s no need to go all out on costume when you can get creative with hair, makeup and nails. For makeup professionals, Halloween can be a demanding time and clients will expect to see your skill and imagination shine through when creating their ideal look. Based on this year’s trends, here are our style predictions for makeup and nails this Halloween.


Following the release of the popular ‘Alice through the looking glass’ movie, the ‘Cheshire cat’ is bound to make an appearance this Halloween and is perfect for those that want to stand out from the crowd. However, for a classic Halloween look, the ‘skull’ or ‘zombie doll’ are always a great makeover option. These looks will guarantee to turn heads and are easy to create for your client. If you’re looking for a more comical look, the pumpkin is always a popular choice, along with clowns, which are a great chance to get colourful and creative.


Statement nails are a great way for your client to get into the spooky spirit without completely transforming themselves. Whether it’s adding simple cobwebs to your client’s manicure with nail art pens or going all out and creating a more vibrant design, Halloween is the perfect time to promote your nail skills and use your imagination to create some memorable manicures. We predict red, orange and black shades will be big this year, along with skulls, which are a constant throughout the Halloween period. Glitter is also bigger than ever in the nail world right now and we predict it will make an appearance on many Halloween manicures this October.
