If you’ve got an eyeliner pen on you, you’ll be able to nail this look in no time. Really, it’s such a no-brainer that cat ears are fully optional with this one!

Can’t be bothered to commit to a face full of white paint and panda eyes? Take inspiration from this glam skull look instead. All you really need to achieve this is a trusty eyeliner pen to draw on the nose and lip details. However, if you really want to take the look to the next level, you could use some grey or black eyeshadow to add more dimension and shadow.

This look takes the cake for the easiest Halloween hack! It’s cute, quick, and requires little more than red lipstick and an eyelash curler. Or, if you’re happy to go freehand, you could recreate it with little more than a coloured eyeliner or lip liner. Pair it with a bold red lip and a little red dress and you’re good to go!

Did you text your ex last night? Did you tell your new flame you’re okay with a situationship even if you’re not? Here’s the look for you. In all seriousness, this dark clown makeup is perfect with any ‘fit, and requires little to no makeup skills to achieve. In short, if you can etch out a few triangles, you’re pretty much sorted!

If you happen to be a big Spiderman fan (or you’re just looking for a cool, low-effort Halloween makeup hack), try this cobweb on for size. All you’ll need to recreate this precise design is a straight edge and some eyeshadow (if you’d like to go the extra mile like Lenka does in this tutorial, you could also go over your design with an eyeliner pen).

Are you a vampire? Are you a murderer? Are you both? It doesn’t really matter! Either way, whether you’re committing to a bit or you just want an easy costume, you can’t go wrong with a splattering of fake blood. All you need to recreate the look is a toothbrush and red water-activated liners or face paints.

If you’ve got a pair of dungarees and a checkered top lying around, this is the tutorial for you. Complete with painted-on patchwork and stitched-up lips, this scarecrow makeup is super easy to achieve but makes it look like you put a lot more effort into your look than you did. Put your hair into pigtails, maybe throw a straw hat on and you’re good to go.
