These are this year's best celeb Halloween make-up & nail looks

Published 01st Nov 2023 by Lollie Hancock

Spooky season is over and done, and with it came some stunning and scary Halloween looks from our favourite celebrities.

From Kendall and Kylie to Bimini, discover our top ten celeb Halloween make-up and nail looks from 2023.

1. Paloma Faith as Jessica Rabbit

Singer/songwriter Paloma Faith channels the ultimate bombshell, Jessica Rabbit, for Maya Jama's infamous Halloween party.

Faith's thick brown brows dissapeared for the evening, replaced with a thin arch to allow space for that iconic purple eyeshadow.

2. Bimini channels Dark Versaille

Drag Race start Bimini (centre) nailed the brief for fashion designer Dilara Findikoglu's "Dark Versaille" themed affair at London's Berners Tavern.

Guests channeled 18th Century aristocrats and harlots, with Bimini looking almost ghostly thanks to the almost translucent make-up look, completed with beauty marks for a Marie Antoniette vibe.

3. Adele does Moricia Addams

For the 33rd weekend of Adele's Las Vegas residency, the singer went all-out in a Morticia Addams ensembele, complete with a vampy cut crease and dark lip.

Wilst it can be easy to focus on the stunning make-up look, the real start of the show is her stunning manicure, with long almond nails and a blood-like watercolour french tip.

4. Saweetie Scissorhands

Rapper Saweetie transformed herself into iconic Tim Burton character, Edward Scissorhands, with nail tech Temeka Jackson on hand to help create a stunning set of nails for the occasion.

Jackson spent three days constructing the 30cm long nails, which were adorned with charms, chrome, and even featured real nursing scissors.

5. Kendall & Kylie do Sugar & Spice

The Jenner's joint costume this year poked fun at comments about how different the pair's personalities are as they chose Drew Barrymore and Debi Mazar's Sugar and Spice from Batman Foreveras their dynamic duo this year.

MUA Mary Phillips glammed the pair for this look, keeping both bases natural whilst softening Kendall's features and adding a dark lip and bold purple eye look for Kylie.

6. Winnie Harlow does Katt Williams

Supermodel Winnie Harlow enlisted MUA Adam Burrell to transform her into actor and comedian Katt Williams from his HBO stand-up comedy show, Kat Williams: The Pimp Chronicles.

Burrell took the look to the next level through the application of a fake goatee, and used lightand shadow to create a stubble-like effect on the chin.

7. Barbie Ferreira's Botched Nurse

Actress, model, and former Euphoria star Barbie Ferreira gave the classic "sexy nurse" costume a scary twist with the addition of prostetics to bring to life a character she dubbed "your favouorite injectables nurse from hell".

SFX MUA Ally McGillicuddy used Dyad Prosthetics to create some killer (pun completely intended) prosthetic cheeckbones and a tiny up-turned nose for Ferreira, opting for a muted, cool-toned palette for the make-up for a ghostly effect and a vampy red lip to add some contrast and colour to the look.

8. Ariana Grande & Liz Gillies's Showgirls

The friends, who first became friends on the set of Victorious over a decade ago, have become known for their iconic Halloween costumes in recent years, with 2023 being no different.

Gillies and Grande took on 90s erotic-thriller Showgirls the year, with Grande taking on Elizabeth Berkley's rookie stripper, Nomi Moalone, and Gillies channeling Cristal Connors, Gina Gershon's characted.

Of the three (yes - three!) looks the pair created, the crystal-encursted showgirl show stopper is our favourite by far.

9. Halsey's Self-made Siren

Hard launching her relationship with actor Avan Jogia this Halloween, singer Halsey and her new boo channeled the seven seas as a sailor and siren.

Halsey's siren-inspired make-up featured a scale effect and cool shimmery blue contours to create a look that wouldn't be out of place under-the-sea. 

The singer, who did her own make-up for the look, using her brand About-Face Beauty, elevated the look by bringing the blue and green hues down onto her body.

10. Kim, Khloe, Olivia & Natalie's Bratz Babes

Kim and Khloe Kardashian joined forces with their friends (and fellow sisters) Olivia Pierson and Natalie Halcro for a group costume as the girls with a passion for fasion; Bratz.

Possibly inspired by younger sister Kylie's collaboration with the doll brand earlier this year, the group went as far as adding prosthetic lips to mimic the dolls' classic look.
