Even though 2020 has been a different year than most of us expected, that doesn’t mean we can’t take a break and have some responsible fun! There’s probably no more perfect holiday than Halloween to wear a facemask for! A facemask can not only keep others safe around you but also add the finishing touches to your Halloween costume!

If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that accentuating your eye makeup when wearing a mask can really help bring the attention to your gorgeous eyes! Check out five of our favorite Halloween makeup styles you can incorporate a mask into and remember to stay spooky and safe this October!

1. Jungle Cat 🐆

Get ready to show how fierce you are with an incredible jungle cat makeup look. Have fun teasing your hair while making your eyes pop with leopard or cheetah print makeup. Use black eyeliner and fake eyelashes to help accentuate your eyes even further.

If you really want to go all out, you can purchase yellow or green colored contacts to really fit the part. After your makeup is all finished, pair it with your favorite jungle cat print mask*!

2. Rainbow 🌈

Show off your love for color with a bright rainbow look! Grab your favorite palette full of color and get blending! You can choose to color just your eyelids or cover most of your face with color. Let your creativity shine through! When your makeup is complete, make sure you pair it with a rainbow mask* that will finish it.

Medusa 🐍


You are bound to turn heads with this look! No matter what route you go, there’s plenty of snakeskin masks* you can find online to fit your Halloween costume. Get creative with your use of makeup and hair to create a Medusa look that is unique to you!

Skeleton 💀

We will never stop loving the classic skeleton costume for Halloween. There are so many different variations you can do, but we particularly love any skeleton that can incorporate flowers. Have fun using different colors, gemstones, and a skeleton facemask* to make your deceased look come to life.

Pop-Art 🎨
