The final look gave an illusion of delicious pink ice cream melting on her face. Desi also added a pale pink wig and a headband that looks like a huge ice cream cone.
Just a couple of days ago the makeup artist and blogger that goes by the name hiimkaylaa on Reddit posted a photo of her ice cream makeup look and made this topic popular again. She got really creative and even included three real waffle cones to make the appearance more realistic.
Many other Instagrammers also posted their ice cream recreations and the trend is spreading faster than ever. Bloggers are using makeup products, face and body paints and accessorize the sundae look with waffle cones, flowers, sprinkles, and ice cream swirl look-alikes.

Halloween makeup looks are redone constantly, updated across social media by some of our favorite MUAs and inspired by anything and everything imaginable. For those with the skills and the means movie-worthy effects can be created, but we all know makeup is transformative. The makeup process should never be underestimated and the results can be very unexpected, as we have known for a very long time that nearly anything can be done with makeup. Here are 50 terrifyingly creative Halloween makeup ideas that are to die for and that you can use for inspiration as well.
1. Melting Barbie Halloween Makeup
This is a pretty original Halloween makeup idea that will allow you to dress as anything you want – after all Barbie has been everything from an Astronaut to a chef. The melting plastic is detailed with the same colors of her lipstick and mascara for a touch of realness.
2. Light Skeleton Makeup
Unlike most skeleton looks, this one is done with heavy contouring in (super)natural shades for a softer look. This one is a great option that can be very forgiving of mistakes rather than a black and white skeletal face option.
3. The Big Reveal: Melted-Face Halloween Makeup
This is such a creative Halloween makeup idea that requires a dedication to detail. The flawless eyeliner is the best part paired with that brow, but the façade has melted off the majority of her face, revealing an immaculately painted skull with stunning shading for depth and dimension.
4. Inner Darkness
This is a multifunctional appearance that can pass for several different fantastic Halloween creature ideas, giving your costume the boost into ethereal. The dark eyes are beautifully framed by long, curly lashes and perfect eyeliner and inner corner highlight. The glitter accents above and below are a great addition.
5. Dedicated Lion Tamer
This is a super creative Halloween makeup look that can be interpreted a number of ways, but the use of the gouges from her feline show buddies are definitive and impressive, accented by the red center of her lips.
6. Harley Quinn Halloween Makeup (Circa Suicide Squad)
Any true fan will tell you there are a few different Harley looks available, but everyone expects to see quite a few smeared makeup Harley Quinn’s from the Suicide Squad movie. It might seem like an easy look, but don’t be fooled. Fortunately, there are plenty of makeup tutorials out there to help you.
This is a Halloween look designed to wow, shock and disturb people and it is a great way to do so. The intricacy is amazing, the highlights really bring it to life and it is very conceptual.
8. Traditional Black and White Skull
The traditional black and white skull Halloween makeup is always a look with an impact and recognizable from further away than any other. If you want to try this look yourself, here is a tutorial!
9. Phantasm Halloween Look
This look would work for nearly any specter or ghost like creature, possibly even a Zombie depending on the overall look you’re going for. Just remember to blend!
10. Candy Corn Hopped up Clown Halloween Makeup
This is incredibly artistic and detailed, and the clown looks like a sugar high just kicked. Judging from the colors and details, Candy Corn is what pushed them over the edge.
11. Sally from The Nightmare before Christmas
Sally is an iconic character and really well loved. This is a great cosplay as well as Halloween look, and the blue stitches drawn on the skin are a great touch!
12. Soft Skull Halloween Makeup
Halloween skulls are done so many different ways, but this is a very cool looking softer makeup look that used products by pencil, lashes and eyeshadows to create.
13. Sketchy Clown Halloween Makeup
This is a great, minimalist appearing and artistic clown that really looks amazing. This will make an impact while being recognizable as a clown anywhere.
14. Twin from The Shining
A cool take on the creepy twins from the Shining, with a touch of gore and creepiness rather than an overwhelming amount if too much gore is not your thing.
15. Kaleidoscopic Halloween Makeup
The caption on her Instagram says Hippie Fortune Teller and notes that the entire look was done with the Make Up For Ever Flash Palette and Pixie luxe lashes.
16. Royal Gold Skeleton
I personally am in love with this Halloween makeup idea; it’s amazing. The Goldilux pigment was mixed with adhesive glue and for extra oomph the black chromaline by MAC Cosmetics and Dark Matter and Assimilate shadows by Melt Cosmetics, as well as considerable artistic talent was used to create this look.
17. Eye Patch Reveal
This take on what is beneath a pirate eyepatch is conceptual and very cool. The look is different and guaranteed to be the talk of any party. The use of Makeup Geek cosmetics certainly played a huge part with the foil Fortune Teller shadow, Cocoa Bear and Corrupt shadows.
18. Nightmare Nurse Halloween Makeup
The MUA said this Halloween makeup look was inspired by Stephen Gammell’s art in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and it’s a masterpiece. The nightmare nurse is beautifully done monochromatic Halloween skull.
19. Pastel Nightmare
There are a lot of different brush techniques applied here and the final look is brilliant. The pink and black tears are a great touch and the lashes are beautiful.
20. Undead Stunner
Just because she’s a zombie doesn’t mean she can’t be beautiful. The blending here is amazing and really stands out with the facial wounds. We have a tutorial here if you would like to try it out yourself.
21. Pop Art Zombie Halloween Makeup
Zombies are traditional Halloween fare, but in this case it is elaborately, beautifully done. This is done with paint, of course, and a great skill and planning, and it is a Halloween nightmare that can liven up any undead party.
22. Halloween Rudolph
This is not the reindeer many expect, if they expected on during Halloween at all. The contouring is well blended and super soft, and the spots stand out just right. Even the jingle bell collar is a great touch, but the doe eyes are just the perfect amount of creepy.
23. A True Face Peel
Sometimes it would be easier to just slap on a new face right? Horrifying to remove though it will be, the offer is still tempting. This is a great use of a single element to update a regular beautiful face of makeup as long as you are talented with latex.
24. Contaminated Zombie Halloween Makeup
If you want to step away from ordinary Zombie makeup, this one could actually pass for a few different imaginative Halloween looks. The single contact is a nice touch and the look works well with the ombre green hair but the silver is the best touch.
25. Subtly Scary
This look has a lot of interesting elements to it that make it seem like the MUA is a dream creature from any fantastic horror movie out now. Be prepared for lots of questions and compliments, if this is a look you are interested in.
26. Red’s Inner Wolf
This is a great take on Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. It’s beautifully done and would look amazing at any Halloween event.
27. Elf on a Shelf
If you want to represent Christmas on Halloween or just find Elf on a Shelf a bit creepy, here is the cosplay or look for you. This particular Halloween makeup is done with both body paint and makeup products.
28. Steam Punk Skeleton
The steampunk mask is a great touch, but the base of this look is what really makes this Halloween makeup amazing.
29. Pop Art Marge Simpson Halloween Makeup
Marge is a favorite character for a lot of people, and combining her iconic appearance with pop art just makes sense! This is a vibrant full look that will require patience but will have a huge payoff.
30. Day Glow Skeleton
This Halloween makeup look was done using only Nyx Cosmetics! Every skeleton should stand out, no reason to be a plain set of white bones!
31. Bloody and Bruised Zombie
Want to be a zombie that is still a bit fresh? Try this look, post mortem bruising and a bit of blood, definitely a youngster in their undead life!
32. Half A Turn
Decay eats away at the pretty, but not so quickly that you cannot see the hard work of her morning makeup application. Think of the reactions at the party when she turns her head, on side to the other is a big difference.
33. Ghoulish and Ghastly
Pale tones and great shading make this a standout Halloween makeup look and the contacts framed by the long lashes and white mascara only enhance the ghostliness.
34. Day of the Dead
Sugar Skulls and Day of the Dead Halloween makeup looks do have a great cultural significance to a lot of people. If you are one of those people and planning on doing a great take on a sugar skull, this is a cool option.
35. Sunset Clown Halloween Makeup
Softer but no less impactful, this clown Halloween makeup will be serious competition for any other costume and especially other clowns. The orange and cream colors blended so well that the soft contours are amazing.
36. The Sassy Undead
Sultry and sassy for someone missing a lot flesh, this look is amazing. This was done with a combo of body paint and makeup.

41. Botched Halloween Makeup!
Well done and detailed, this Halloween makeup look hits on every fear about plastic surgery, and realistic fears are the best ones to address in costume if you want to make an impression.
42. Dark Royalty
The devil is in the details here, and from the rough black crown to the lashes to the painted neckpiece, this look is amazing. The black and grey ombre wig is a great finishing touch as well.
43. Hellfire’s Demon
The offsetting feature here is the use of the oranges and reds to provide the lava breaks on the skin, matched perfectly by the contacts. Be the brightest demon in the room with this Halloween makeup idea and don’t forget the horns.
44. Vintage Clown Halloween Makeup
There are quite a few cool looking clowns on this list, but for Halloween terror, this is a clown that you want. Horrifying but awe-inspiring, isn’t it?
45. Zombie Alice Halloween Makeup
Or possibly Alice in Zombieland, this take is still pristine with a definite darkness. The most impeccable part of this look is definitely the brows and eyes, but overall this is a great Halloween makeup idea.

Catwoman has been popular in every version since she came out, and rather that wearing a mask, painting one on seems like a good way to prevent having to adjust all night. Try this tutorial to recreate the look!

Don’t miss: 50 Awe-Inspiring Halloween Nail Art Designs
October is already coming to its end, which means that soon jack-o-lanterns will maliciously laugh and stare at you with their flaming eyes, little Edward Scissorhands, Pippi Longstocking, Captain Jack Sparrow and Maleficent will get together to knock at the doors and scream “Trick or Treat” as many times as possible only to return home with a large packet chock-full with candies afterwards. And while the children will be obsessed with grasping candies, their zombie and vampire parents will be strolling along the streets to intimidate and drive the netherworld creatures out of the city thereby transforming into terrific and gruesome creatures by themselves. You can also do too finding inspiration in this easy and cool Mummy Halloween makeup tutorial!
There are only a few days left until Halloween knocks at your doors and it is the exact time for you to make a final decision about your dreadful Halloween costume. Maybe you are prone to becoming a green-faced witch with its flying broom or maybe you are so enthusiastic to stand somewhere on the corner purring “Meow, Meow” or it is likely that a skull or vampire fangs are circulating in your head. But all that chaos in your head will instantly stop once you look to our super-horrible Halloween makeup tutorial offering to act like a Mummy that has just taken off that myrrh from its body and is going to appear in the public definitely not with good intentions.
We were first obsessed with mummies when in 1999 the Hollywood film “Mummy” came out eliciting us to go further by exploring Egyptian and Persian histories to find those horrible samples of human mummies that were not so lucky to rest in peace under the ground. There couldn’t be a more appropriate time than Halloween to put into action all your mummy investigations and resurrect to take your revenge. Converting into a mummy at Halloween is not such a difficult process to undertake only if you acquire medical bandage to wrap your whole body with and if you follow our step-by-step Mummy Halloween makeup tutorial, that apart from being horrible and terrific is depicting ultra-seductive and expressive carbon black-dusty blue eyes.
So, if you have already thrown those vampire fangs or skull bones out of your mind and have finally chosen that dreadful mummy character as your ideal Halloween costume, here is what products you should have at hand and what steps you should follow:
• Makeup primer, foundation
• Medical bandage
• Eyebrow kit
• Black gel eyeliner
• Dusty blue, brown and black eyeshadows
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Muddy eyeshadow colors, like grey, purple, brown and olive
• Theatrical fake blood
• Mauve lip liner
• Makeup brushes
Step 1: First of all apply foundation on your whole face over the makeup primer to give it a smooth look and only after that use medical bandage to cover all your head without leaving any hair exposed. Wrap it in a way as to leave a couple of bandage stripes to cross your face diagonally as if you have fiercely torn the bandage while escaping from your hiding place.
Step 2: After contouring your eyebrows, apply black gel eyeliner and a liner brush to contour your lower lid and continue the process up to creating a wing on the outer corner of your eye.
Step 3: Then pass to tinting your eyelids using a dusty blue eyeshadow all over your mobile lid, giving it some frosted appearance. Afterwards blend medium brown and reddish brown eyeshadows in the crease, softly diffusing them for a natural look.
Step 4: Continue the dramatic-look-creation process by lining your upper lid as well. Then starting from the edge of the wing line, draw a new line to contour the crease of your eye, stopping at the middle of the crease, thus making wings look more realistic. Using the same black eyeliner, create a “Ra eye” at only one eye as a reminiscence of your Egyptian roots.
Step 5: Apply black mascara to get impeccably curled eyelashes and use false lashes to give them extra volume. Make a transition from the lashes to your nose, drawing a skeleton nose on the tip of it with the same black eyeliner in order to emphasize once more that there is no blood running through your veins.
Step 6: To make your face and bandage look dirty and muddy, apply grey, dark purple, brown and olive brown eyeshadows of matte finish all over your face and bandage. Then show your bloody nature by creating some false scratches all over your face using a brush and fake blood.
Step 7: Finish your dreadful mummy makeup by coating your lips with mauve lip liner, afterwards tapping it with black eyeshadow.
Now that your mummy look is 100% guaranteed, what is left to you is acting like a real mummy, running to and fro in search for more and more victims either to restore your human form or just to take your revenge in a hyper cruel manner.

Don’t miss: Zombie Makeup Tutorial for Halloween
Halloween, a period when the dead are mingled with the living, when the people’s fantasy reaches its pinnacle, is slowly creeping to us threatening to transform us into a creature that is being anything but naïve and innocent. This is a day when a human being decides to reveal his contradictory nature to the fullest measure – being afraid of dark forces but meanwhile enthusiastically and zealously flying to their arms up to passing into a dark force himself. The air is wrapped with mystery and horror, the Halloween venue – jam-packed with the most dreadful and the most seductive creatures escaped from all those Hollywood horror films and our favorite fairy tales.
It is a norm to walk down the street as a Zombie and meet the cynical and terrific Joker from the Dark Knight or a bloodsucker vampire from Dracula or even that horrid long-haired girl crawling out of the television. Provocative panthers are flirting, fluffy cats are purring “Meow, Meow”, while the Red Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland keeps on giving orders to everybody. But it is not only horror films, cartoons or fairy tales that can inspire you while heading to a Halloween party; real life is also producing super-seductive and magnetic figures among them the most mysterious one being Geisha, the traditional Japanese female entertainer, who is bewitching not only for Japanese men, but also for men all over the world.

Turning into a Geisha on Halloween can be something really compelling and entertaining. But if you think that it is that much easy and straightforward, then you are completely unfamiliar with Japanese traditions, as Geisha goes beyond any kimono and maroon red lips. Of course, first thing you should do after making up your mind to become a Geisha for one day is to acquire a floral kimono with bright-colored obi and a pair of wooden shoes called okobo. Afterwards you can gather your straight dark hair together to make a bun on the top of your head fastening it with red bobby pins. Now it is high time for your Geisha makeup, which can become an easy and funny process if you follow our step-by-step Geisha makeup tutorial for Halloween to create an attractive complexion of white-red-pink combination spreading around some dangerous and sinister charm.
So, in order to appear as a Geisha wrapped with mysterious aura at the Halloween party, here is what products you should put to use and what steps you should follow:
• White face paint
• Paper glue
• Black eye pencil
• Black and pink eyeshadows
• Pink watercolor eyeshadow
• Black eyeliner
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Deep wine lipstick
• Pink blush
• Makeup brushes
Step 1: First of all endeavor to completely lose the natural shade of your complexion painting your face all white creating an illusion of a mask. Start from whitening your brows by applying paper glue with three layers. Apply one layer, let it dry and then pass to the next layers. Afterwards, apply white face paint all over your face, ears and neck and do not forget to paint your nape as well, leaving one or two stripes unpainted to expose your natural skin. Just for you information, nape is the most seductive part of feminine body, according to the conservative Japanese people.
Step 2: Use a black eye pencil to outline the shape of your new eyebrows higher than your actual brows. Afterwards fill in that shape with black and pink eyeshadows thus creating an ombre effect.
Step 3: To create an illusion of eyebrow shade, apply bright pink eyeshadow to the side of your nose and blend it over the covered brow.
Step 4: Keep on adding bright pink accents on your Geisha face. Apply pink watercolor to create bold wings on your eyes and then blend some black eyeshadow with pink to give depth to the look. Sharp tips do not end in here. Use black eyeliner to create an Asian eye shape in that way turning your eye into a double-edged sharp knife.
Step 5: Coat your eyelashes with mascara pushing them up for maximum volume and length. Apply false eyelashes to add extra density to your natural lashes.
Step 6: Apply deep wine lipstick to convert your lips into two sultry floral petals, leaving the edges of your lips unpainted.
Step 7: Finish off your alluring Geisha complexion by applying a pink blush on your cheeks in a round shape.
Now that no one could doubt in your being a Geisha girl you can confidently head to the Halloween party, but to be on the safe side, arm yourself with a couple of traditional Japanese dances and music. Who knows, some Japanese men may walk around!
