We know this upcoming spooky holiday is usually all about the outfits (see our favorite jaw-dropping celebrity Halloween costumes), but—being beauty devotees—we prefer getting into the spirit with face makeup and otherworldly hair choices. There are unicorns, skeletons, movie characters, and creepy undead dolls to get into, all of which require different, and equally exciting, makeup and hair prep.

Whether you’re looking for some Halloween inspiration or are just in the mood for some jaw-dropping makeup talent, keep scrolling to see eight terrifyingly beautiful Halloween makeup looks from a few of your favorite celebrities.
