Halloween Looks: Sam, Sarah, Rachel, Kstelin
So many of you sent in your fabulous looks for this month’s challenge! Since these looks are often elaborate, I’m going to feature four per post. My goal is to then include a few posts per day until we have featured all of this challenge’s participants.
To kick things off, we have Sam as a mermaid, Sarah as a dead doll, Rachel as Elphaba, and Kstelin as Marie Antoinette.
Check out their looks!
Sam’s mermaid look
“Mermaid” by Sam
SAM is an 18 year old student and aspiring makeup artist originally from New York and currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada. She views makeup as an art form, not a tool to mask insecurities and imperfections. It’s a passion, a hobby, and slowly turning into a talent. Most of all, it’s FUN! You can check out her makeup blog.
INSPIRATION: The inspiration for this look was a mermaid. I wanted to use sea-like colors, very cool and mythical. This look would be much better with some false lashes, rhinestones, and some long glittery hair, but unfortunately, I had none of those at the time! I did, though, throw on some fake pearl earrings for good measure.

Sarah’s dead doll look
“Dead Doll” by Sarah
SARAH is an Australian uni student studying graphic design. She fell in love with makeup after watching many tutorials on YouTube! She has also recently applied for a position to study makeup artistry and would love to one day work for MAC.
INSPIRATION: I guess my inspiration for this was my own mind. I thought of being a dead doll after brainstorming a few ideas, then practised my “dead” look.
- EYES: MAC Push the Edge Pigment, NYX Purple Eyeshadow, Matte Black Eyeshadow
- LIPS: Black Eyeliner, NYX Purple Eyeshadow
- FACE: Pale foundation all over the face (including lips) along with a matte white eyeshadow, MAC Push the Edge Pigment and NYX Purple Eyeshadow (to contour).
Rachel’s Elphaba look
“Elphaba” by Rachel
RACHEL is 18 years old and live in England. She’s currently a student at college who would really love to pursue a career in cosmetics in the future. You can check out her blog here.
INSPIRATION: I was really inspired to do a look based on Elphaba from the musical Wicked after repeatedly listening to the musical soundtrack! I really adore the character of Elphaba and her transformation through the musical. I wanted to go for more of the mature look she has towards the second act, with a darker smokey eye. I also didn’t go for the deep green lip she has on stage, instead I decided to apply a bright red lip based on the promotional images for the show. Overall it was a really fun look to create – I plan on re-creating this on the 31st for Halloween!
- EYES: Milani Domino Quad, 120 Palette, MAC Rapidblack Penultimate Liner, and Benefit Eye Bright.
- LIPS: Barry M Red Liner, No. 7 Cherry Lipstick, MAC Lady Danger Lipstick, and Matte Black Eyeshadow.

Kstelin’s Marie Antoinette look
“Marie Antoinette” by Kstelin
KSTELIN is a fashion student, freelance makeup artist, fashion stylist, and sometimes a photographer–when it’s needed. She has two dogs named Lulu Belle and Ella Kaila. You can find her on her YouTube channel.
INSPIRATION: I am in love with the visual of Marie Antoinette–Sofia Coppola did such an amazing job with that movie. I hold it near and dear to my heart since it is a very fashion based film showcasing the rococo era.

- LIPS: Revlon Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick, Vaseline
