Halloween is the one day of the year we can go ‘all-out’ on our makeup and play around with bright and outrageous colours, that we sometimes wouldn’t be able to do during other times of the year, unless we’re very daring! Whether you’re channeling Cady Heron’s gory bride from Mean Girls, the infamous ‘Harley Quinn’ or if you’re wanting to create your own dramatic and inspiring look, the one thing you’re definitely going to need is a vibrant pigmented eyeshadow palette.
When creating a Halloween look, one thing to remember is that it doesn’t always have to be scary or ‘gory’. This fun-filled annual celebration is more about being creative and inspiring with your look. You can really go to town with the colours and styles!
In this blog, we’re going to go through a few Halloween inspired makeup styles which you can recreate using our very own incredibly pigmented Spice Eyeshadow Palette, which is extremely popular amongst our customers and social media followers.
To give you some Halloween makeup inspo, we’ll be showing you just a handful of inspiring and incredible makeup looks created by some of our favourite makeup icons on Instagram, using our Spice Eyeshadow Palette.
Our favourite looks
Just from a quick flick through Chloe Morton’s Instagram profile (_chloemorton), you really can see how talented and creative she is! Here she uses our Spice Palette to create the ultimate clown Halloween look, which is inspired by the Joker. This look is bright, colourful, vibrant and inspiring, but is quite sinister at the same time.
Alice Lindvall (@aliceartistry) creates adorable and subtle looks using our palette. If you’re going for Ariel or ‘under the sea’ Little Mermaid kind of vibes, this eye is a great addition to the look. The orange tones in this look create a stunning sunset base.
Rachel Bourne (@rachelbournemakeup) created the ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ look which screams Halloween glam. She used our palette to turn herself into a spooky (lifelike) zombie bride dressed in blood. Her creativity for this dramatic look is truly a work of art!
Zoe Ellen (@zoe.ellen.mua) regularly shares Halloween makeup looks we think you would be inspired by. Working as a full-time MUA, Zoe has fun with her makeup looks and has a growing fanbase on her accounts. She uses the palette to create a fiery orange base for her spiderweb look.
Inspired by Japanese culture, Abbie Standage (@makeupandbrowsbyabbie) uses the Spice palette to create a Geisha woman with a pale white face, rosy cheeks and tears of red blood streaming down her face. Her Instagram profile shows dozens of her makeup looks which are loved by all of her fanbase, although we think this one is eerie and unusual.
Another one created by Abbie Standage (which we loved) is this dramatic and bold look. Abbie created the iconic burning pumpkin look, using orange and black tones. One thing we love about this look is that it proves eyeshadow isn’t just for the eyes, but can be used as a form of body art too. She takes part in the #31daysofhalloween Instagram trend whereby she uploads daily Halloween looks on each day of October.
We love this girly, pink skeleton look created by Mia Ashton (@miaashtonmua) ahead of Halloween. She uses Bumblebee, Portland, Girlfriend and Bubblegum from our Spice palette to create this look, alongside our ‘Trust Fund’ Pressed Highlighter for a glowing shine.
How to create these looks
If you are looking for a palette with the perfect mix of pigmented vibrant matte reds, oranges, yellows and warm shades then our Spice Palette is the ONE for you! It’s often described by many of our customers as the ‘BEST eyeshadow palette they own’. The red colours stay intensely red and don’t blend into pink.

All colours on the Spice Palette will help you stand out from the crowd and stay in place all night long, whether you’re at a party or on a night out with your friends. You really can create the hottest looks with this palette!
