Tharrrrr she blows! Down below is my Pennywise clown eyeshadow tutorial — I also tell the story of Jennifer Pan, a Canadian girl who killed her parents for no good reason. Nothing scarier than that ?

Devilishy cute

My mom would not be happy I did this devil costume, even though it’s not the scariest devil makeup you’ve ever seen. TBH, I rebuke it in the name of Jesus ?

5. Beetlejuice Makeup

It’s showtime!

Is there anything better than a Beetlejuice Halloween costume? 10/10 always a classic. Beetlejuice may not be the scariest costume ever, but he is a dead guy, so try to tell me that’s not creepy, I dare you!

Wowie zowie, the quality is BAD (this was before I got better filming equipment), so please forgive me!

6. Dark Angel Makeup

Fallen from heaven.

Is a dark angel the same as a demon? I suppose it stands to reason they’re the same, but never you mind. I love this creepy costume — it was such a hit when I posted it to the gram!

7. The Nun Makeup

Is there anything creepier than a nun?

I went to Catholic school in junior high, so I promise you… there’s not. I once got chased down a dark hallway by a nun… but that’s a story for another time ?

8. Scary Skeleton Makeup

White skull makeup for halloween with smokey eyes, skeleton teeth and white hair

Spooky, scary skeletons, send shivers down your spine!

Products Used:

  • I used the James Charles palette for this, but I’ve used the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette for the same eyeshadow look before, and I like the Jaclyn Hill one wayyy more (plus I would never recommend buying anything from James Charles lmao — the palette was sent to me for free).
  • Mehron Black Face Paint
