Spiderwebbed Eyes

Skip the messy spiderweb house decor, and opt for a creepy-crawly eye design instead. This makeup would look amazing with a black dress and killer pumps. Follow the tutorial, and if you're feeling a bit bare, glue a few small plastic spiders along your temple.

Batman gets a pretty makeover with this bat mask tutorial from My Cherry Style. This tutorial takes a bit more time to get just right, and we recommend you have a mask or image to guide you along. It's totally worth it in the end. Just slip into an all-black outfit, tie on a cape, and bat those lashes.

Re-create Cleopatra's makeup for Halloween with this tutorial from Pixiwoo.
