Up Your Eye Makeup Game With These Extreme Eyeshadow Looks For Halloween

Maddy from Euphoria

Euphoria gave us plenty of glittery eye looks to choose from, but one of the most iconic is Maddy’s over-the-top rhinestone eyeliner. To get the look, first, you have to choose a base eyeshadow color, apply any white, clear-drying eyelash glue to attach rhinestones to your eyelids and lash line in a cat-eye pattern.

“God Is A Woman” a la Ariana Grande

Pop star Ariana Grande surely captured a mood in the music video of her hit song "God is a Woman," and channelling it is as easy as gathering a few purple products. Instead of using body paint, you can try using eye and lip products to recreate the look. Bonus: You can wash it off with the God Is A Woman-inspired bath bomb by Lush

Wonder Woman Comic

For sure, Wonder Woman will be one of the most popular costumes again this year, but that shouldn’t stop you from dressing as her. To recreate this look, draw lines cross your face with a liquid eyeliner pen, use some golden face paint to create your own crown and pull it all together with a matte burgundy lipstick.

Violet Beauregarde of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Makeup enthusiast Ellie Adis found inspiration in the bubblegum-chewing Violet of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. To recreate her look, brush a bright purple eyeshadow across your nose, packing a lot of color on top and blending the excess out towards your cheeks. Add a blonde bob wig, pack of bubblegum, and blue jacket, and people will be doing double-takes.
