Celebrity Halloween parties are a fun place to be. Besides new innovative costumes, celebrities love to dress up as their favorite celebrities. The traditional ghost or zombie costume is boring for the A-listers. We can’t blame them. They have pro makeup teams that can turn them into anything they want. Even the biggest celebrities secretly desire to be another celebrity at least for a day. And there isn’t a better day to make that possible than Halloween. Enjoy all the best Halloween celebrities-dressed-as-other-celebrities costumes in this short video.
For Kate Hudson’s Halloween party in 2016, Katy Perry went under a dramatic transformation. The singer transformed herself into the former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The star had her pal transformed into Hillary Clinton’s husband Bill Clinton. The politics-themed costumes of Katy Perry and her friend surrounded by men in black-style bodyguards got all the attention.
Back in 2013 Miley Cyrus gave the best Halloween treat to Lil’ Kim. The young star wore a replica of rapper’s infamous 1999 MTV Video Music Awards outfit. Lil’ Kim loved Miley’s transformation. She shared a photo of the costume on her Twitter account giving her approval.
Chrissy Teigen channeled her inner diva with Honey Boo Boo Halloween costume. Teigen dressed up in a girly pink dress just like the “Toddlers & Tiaras” star. She wore her hair up in a glamorous blonde updo with a dazzling tiara.
Beyonce, her mother Tina Knowles and her little daughter Blue Ivy looked insanely cute dressed up as the New York hip-hop trio Slat-N-Pepa. The singer and her loved ones wore electric outfits recognizable for the 90s’ trio.
Among the celebrities that transformed themselves into other celebrities are Amber Rose, Matt Lauer, Cindy Crawford and her husband, Keke Palmer and more. See all the fun costumes in the video above.
Halloween is the most anticipated holiday of the year. People enjoy thinking of creative costumes and dressing up as others. Some of them spend months planning their appearance and making all the tiny details of the mask. But there are also the ones that don’t have any idea what they will transform into. Since this big holiday is right around the corner, we decided to help you out with some fun costumes. Celebrities are always innovative and offer examples of show-stopping masks. Heidi Klum, Ellen DeGeneres, and Kelly Ripa are just a part of the famous A-listers that know how to do Halloween.
The queen of Halloween, Heidi Klum has a new surprise up her sleeve every year. It is hard to choose the best costume from her impressive list. The supermodel also throws the best parties, that everyone enjoys. In 2013 for her annual party Heidi appeared as a wrinkled old lady. Her costume was so good that people didn’t even recognize her. With the help of her makeup artists, Klum got visible varicose veins, realistic wrinkles, and white hair. Each year she gives sneak peeks from the whole procedure of making the mask, which can take many hours. We can’t wait to see what she is preparing this year.
Rihanna is another celebrity that loves playing dress-up. In 2014, the Bajan singer showed up looking like a ninja turtle for Halloween. She wore a skin-tight green catsuit and a chic buster top. Rihanna added a pair of gladiator high-heeled sandals and a red face mask. On her back, she wore a shell that made the whole costume even more realistic.
If you still haven’t got a costume and you are running out of ideas here comes some help. We chose terrific celebrity costumes that will do the job. You’d better start getting ready because Halloween is only a few days away.

Halloween is one of the funniest times of the year, especially when it comes to browsing through our favorite celebrities’ and it girls’ costume ideas. Thanks to the main social media channels, the latest Halloween costume challenges have been extremely thrilling, and this fictitious 2016 edition has been no less so. From politicians to Nineties-inspired characters, from spooky skeletons to vampires, here are the best Halloween 2016 costumes our beloved celebrities, it girls and fashionistas wore this year!
The Spookiest Family
Whenever it comes to, well, every single ceremony and celebration, the Kardashians are the ones whose costume ideas are always the most anticipated. Full of creativity and accompanied by spectacular makeup artists’ help, who perfectly manage to realize what they have in mind, the Kardashians and Jenners’ Halloween 2016 costumes as showcased on their Instagram feeds are as inspirational as any Halloween-themed Pinterest board.
This time around, most of the Kardashians opted for classic Halloween costumes, such as spooky skeletons and vampire brides, of course, revisited through their signature sensual lens.
Celebrate the Nineties At All Costs!
Although most of the Kardashians donned spooky Halloween costumes, one of the family’s youngest members revealed her Christina Aguilera side in the iconic Dirrty costume, receiving Aguilera’s seal of approval.
Of course, we are talking about Kylie Jenner, a.k.a. the Kardashian/Jenners’ member, who loves the Nineties most of all. Her Nineties/early 00s-inspired costume denotes one of the Halloween 2016 main tendencies, namely that of drawing inspiration from the grungiest decade of all.
Kelly Rowland, in fact, celebrated the Nineties too, as she wore a Dionne from the Clueless costume.
As for the most elegant, heroin chic Halloween look of the season, the award goes to model Martha Hunt, who channeled an utterly sophisticated Michel Pfeiffer in Scarface costume.
Legendary Halloween Costumes
When drawing inspiration from the past, one cannot avoid emulating iconic past personalities and films, such as Marilyn Monroe and Pulp Fiction. Tamron Hall and Willie Geist, who dressed up (and danced) as Uma Thurman and John Travolta, for example, celebrated the latter. Martha Stewart, on the other hand, channeled her best Marilyn Monroe side.
Vogue Japan fashion editor Giovanna Battaglia turned herself into Cher from the time, when she won her Oscar, while Victoria Justice gave Beetlejuice its most punk-rock makeover.
High five to Emily Ratajkowski too, who became an empowering Frida Kahlo just in time for Halloween.
Is Anyone Scared of the US Elections?
Easy to make and affordable, Katy Perry’s Hilary Clinton costume is one of the most ironic Halloween costumes of 2016 so far, as it really sets the bar higher for anyone who is willing to replicate her idea.
As many of you had surely predicted, a lot of celebrities (and friends of yours) were thinking about a Stranger Things-inspired costume for Halloween 2016. Comedian and actress Amy Schumer is probably the one that drew inspiration from the Netflix TV series the best way, as she and her boyfriend perfectly recreated the character and metaphysically spooky atmosphere from The Stranger Things.
It Girl Chiara Ferragni also channeled a bloody Eleven, of course while holding a pack of Eggo.
Loving Couples Love Halloween
Amy Schumer was not the one who got a matching costume with her significant other. Many couples love to play the Halloween costume game together, always improving themselves (just think about Neil Patrick Harris and now husband’s costume timeline!)
This time around, in the ‘couple section’, we got Jordan Rodgers and Jojo Fletcher, who got romantically dressed up as their older selves, while Alyssa Milano just gave her husband and children a Pokemon-approved makeover.
Fairies, Unicorns and Sexy Bunnies
Although actually far from being scary, some of our favorite celebrities took the time to celebrate sexiness and magic at the same time.
Actress and ballerina Jenna Dewan, for instance, opted for a magical unicorn costume.
Elle Fanning, on the other hand, was a beautifully ethereal princess, while Modern Family’s Ariel Winter shut the many body-shamers down, who post disrespectful things on her Instagram account once again, just wearing a sensually naïve bunny costume.
She also reminded us that no matter what we do, the most important thing during Halloween is to have fun and celebrate our costumes (and bodies!).

Is there anything better than a cool Halloween costume? To me, if there’s one thing that is actually even cooler, that’s finding Halloween costumes that are also pretty wearable on a daily basis, such as those of the Addams family (dressing up as Wednesday Addams is always a good idea). And what if they are affordable, too? Today we found 10 super-cool, affordable and versatile Halloween 2016 costumes to wear all year long, especially during these upcoming colder months. May the spookiest option be always with you!
#1. Cuddle Me, For I Am a Cat!
Whenever it comes to Halloween, somehow cat costumes are always the most popular, with cat ear headbands being the ones that fly off the shelves the soonest. If your Halloween party is at home, or you really don’t fancy headbands, why not opt for a super cozy cat hoodie? This one, available from Wildfox, is made of soft sherpa fleece and even reinforces the concept by stating ‘I am a cat’ on the front!
#2. Halloween Meets the Nineties
We all know Nineties-inspired motifs are going to play a huge role in fashion in the seasons to come. Lace-up shirts, in particular, are going to be all the rage, so why not sport a Halloween-inspired one this time around? This one, retailing at MissGuided, will specifically end up being perfect at any metal/hard rock festival during springtime, or just look glamorously rock at any night out with friends.
#3. Hocus Pocus, the Witches Are Back!
Following the witchy motif of the previous Halloween costume, this cozy t-shirt not only is affordable and edgy, but will also somehow look utterly cute if paired with a balloon skirt or a pair of high-waist black culottes. A dark lipstick is mandatory, tough! Buy this from ASOS!
#4. The Great Pumpkin Is Coming
Probably not suitable for springtime, or for wintertime, this edgy off-the-shoulder sweatshirt from SheIn will become your must-have staple all the cold season long, and we highly recommend wearing it on the first day of the fall season as the best way to celebrate it!
#5. Spooky Cat Ladies
If the cat lady-approved hoodie wasn’t enough for you, this ironic spooky cat boxy black t-shirt from ASOS will surely become the ultimate Halloween costume for 2016 that you can also wear whenever you are watching a scary horror movie with friends, or on each Friday 13th.
#6. Halloween Is Not Dead!
Halloween costumes often draw their best inspirations from the punk rock scene. This t-shirt available at ASOS just celebrates such an unconventional union, and will also become one of your most glamorously rock, stylish essentials to show off at any rock disco club.
#7. Being Beautiful From the Inside Out
Comfy, slim leg, and with cute skeleton designs, these cropped inside-out knox pants will look just perfect with either an inside out t-shirt, or a plain black bodice with an elegant bateau neck. The previous punk skeleton t-shirt will look perfectly fine too! The costume is available for purchase at Wildfox.
#8. The Angel of the Death Likes Rhinestones
Here we are with the spookiest tee of all! We bet it will likely appeal especially to those who love listening to metal music, and are really fond of gothic aesthetics. If you have a biker-inspired leather jacket or skinny leather trousers, it is time to use them and pair them with this t-shirt that you can get from SheIn!
#9. Skulls Can Be Cute Too
Soft and delicate, this boyfriend cut t-shirt from River Island combines bon-ton floral designs with a melancholic skull print, and is just the best ‘simple’ statement piece to wear both at any Halloween party and on a daily basis. Being so simple, it is possible to style it with basically anything, from longuette pencil skirts to bell-bottom jeans.
#10. #Squad Ghouls
Twinning, a.k.a. matching your outfit with your BFF, was one of the hottest styles of 2016. So why not celebrate it this Halloween costume? If you are planning to go on a spooky night out with your squad, opting for a power squad ghouls-approved t-shirt might be the ultimate winning option to show off any time you go out together as well! You can get this affordable and wearable Halloween t-shirt from Boohoo!

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.
37. Moldy Mummy!
The death of this mummy is the details. This MUA was very dedicated and applied withering to the bandages, moldy spots to the skin; it’s a beautifully well-executed look.
38. Krampus Halloween Makeup
This Krampus Halloween makeup is for those who want to combine Christmas and Halloween without missing out on a good dose of fright.
39. Easy Halloween Mummy
If you are looking for a Halloween makeup look that is a bit creepy, but still beautiful, take a look at this mummy tutorial!
40. Broken Doll Halloween Look
You’re a doll all year long, why not be one on Halloween too? The broken doll Halloween makeup is detailed and vivid.
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.
46. Catwoman Halloween Look
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!
47. The Joker
The Joker has had many incarnations and this one circa Suicide Squad is no less popular than the others. The intensity in the look is amplified by the MUA’s application.
48. The Seer
See everything with your third eye while rocking this amazing look that is both futuristic and historic. The color combination in this Halloween makeup is unexpected, but beautifully put together.
49. Terror Within
Aliens have infiltrated and are beginning to drop their human disguises! At least that is what people will think seeing this alien Halloween makeup job.
50. Winged Unicorn Halloween Look
Make a magical impression with this unicorn Pegasus hybrid Halloween makeup. The rainbow hair is a great touch and the glittering highlights and contouring works beautifully with the jewels to catch the light.
