It’s Halloween Glossies and we, of course, have a ‘Trick or Treat’ for you!

And, on this spooky day, there’s no better time to get creative with your make-up looks! So, I thought it would be a great idea to share with you my favourite beauty YouTubers, their best Halloween looks and what products you need to recreate them!

Also, what's even more exciting, is we’ll be giving you a "Trick or Treat" option when purchasing… A 'bootiful' treat-worthy high-end product that’s worth splurging on,  and the bargain alternate that’s a beauty trick you need to know about!


My favourite YouTuber Sophdoeslife is incredible at creating amazingly spooky make-up looks! And in this look, the gorgeous colours, along with the precise strokes, can only be mastered with the right tools. We all should have our go-to makeup brushes that are reliable as our best friend...

Trick: Real Techniques Artists Essentials

Create haunting looks with this five-piece brush set. It’s worth only £15.99 and includes brushes for your face, lips and eyes. The luxe synthetic fibres of these brushes are spookily soft and help blend your makeup seamlessly - and my favourite thing about these multi-purpose brushes is that they are perfect for liquid, cream or powder products!

The tapered Expert Edge Large Brush can be used to apply foundation and the Soft Accent Brush is ideal for blush, thanks to its tapered shape. This set also contains a Smudge Liner Brush for you to use when lining your eyes or defining your brows, and a dense Lip Smudge Brush to blend lipstick and liner. The stand out brush in this collection for me; the Spotlight Fan Brush which is brilliantly shaped to sculpt and define your face through contour and highlighter.

Treat:ICONIC London Ultimate Brush Set

To elevate your brush game, this ultimate 12 piece set is a must. At £60, it might seem a little more pricey, but it works out at only £5 per brush! With a mix of carefully crafted eye and complexion brushes, you can create a cauldron full of looks.

The set includes a Small Point Brush, Small Angle Brush, Medium Angled Shader and Tapered Blending Brush for ghoulish eye looks and brows, a Large Shader perfect for packing on the pigment, and a Foundation Buffer designed to apply powder, cream or liquid products.

If you're a 'contour witch' like me, you'll love having the choice of two brushes to sculpt your face (a Contour Buffer and an Angled Powder Brush),two face powder brushes (a Large Powder Brush and a Tapered Powder Brush), a Concealer Blender and a Flat Fan Brush that you can not only use to highlight but is also great for wiping away any product fall-out for a polished look.


This bright, bloodcurdling look of Roxi’s is a favourite of mine. And to recreate this masterpiece for yourself, of course, you'll need a magical eyeshadow palette. With so many to choose from though, it can be very overwhelming… But, don't worry glossies, we’ve narrowed it down for you!

Trick: Revolution Pro Regeneration Palette - Trends Mischief Mattes

This palette offers an amazing 18 eyeshadows for £8.99! Screaming with vibrant, bright shades to create the perfect Halloween look, you can wear these highly-pigmented shades individually, or mix and match the ultra-blendable hues for a unique display. With every colour of the rainbow, this palette has a shade for everyone. Use an eye primer and a flat-headed brush to pack on the pigment!

Treat: Illamasqua Artistry Palette - Experimental

For a more high-end rainbow palette to create spine-chilling looks, look no further than your girl, Illamasqua. This 12 shade palette for £39 is the high-end palette of dreams! Created to celebrate the brand's 10th anniversary, these creamy shades are full of pigment that packs a punch! Whether you're looking for warm or cool colours, this bold palette has it all.


NikkieTutorials has had a busy year. Not only did she release her own brand Nimya in 2021, but she was also one of the hosts of the Eurovision song contest. This hasn’t stopped her from finding the time to create spookily good Halloween looks though!

Nikkie is known for her flawless makeup and fun yet informative beauty videos - and this super fun, action-filled Halloween look is no different. My favourite part of this rouge look is the eye-catching red lips. And if you want to master this look yourself, you need one of these following incredible products...

Trick: Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick

For under £5, this sexy, semi-matte lipstick is a bargain! Created in collaboration with Kate Moss, this lipstick is infused with an exclusive Black Diamond pigment complex - think creamy application, intense colour and a light-reflecting finish. This red as blood shade named ‘My Gorge Red’ is housed in a black case (complete with the supermodel's signature) and is sure to stay put on your pout for up to eight hours!

Treat: YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick Holiday Limited Edition

Glossies, if you've never owned a mango scented lipstick now’s the time to buy one! This high-end find is under £30 and a limited edition! Housed in a glittery leopard print case, this medium coverage lipstick will add glitz and glam to your make up bag! This lipstick will also provide shine, hydration (thanks to the six nourishing oils) and a pop of gory red pigment to your lips. If you didn’t know, the creamy formula and mango scent is a signature style for the glamorous YSL!

Steph Toms

This spookily romantic Halloween beauty look by the lovely Steph Toms is a dream.Her makeup skills are incredible and her eyeshadow looks are always unique! I cannot stop looking at her eyeliner in this photo so, of course, I had to share my top two products for recreating this masterpiece.

Trick: Barry M Cosmetics On Point Precision Eyeliner

Under £5, this intense black eyeliner’s formula glides effortlessly across your lids to define and shape your eye! Its ultra-fine tip is ideal for mistake-free application and, not only is it waterproof, this eyeliner is long-lasting too! Sweep it across your lids, close to your lash line and create a stunning fine line of liner. Then, for a Halloween-inspired cat eye, extend this line at the outer corner.

Treat: Hourglass Voyeur Waterproof Liquid Liner - Ultra Black

At just over £30, this high-end liner is worth every penny! If you want to make an impact this Halloween, Hourglass has you covered with this ultra-black felt pen! Its tapered tip means you can draw thin lines for a sleek, professional finish, while its also waterproof and long-lasting - the two most important things you want from a liner!

Tammi Clarke

British beauty creator Tammi Clarke, better known as Makeupbytammi, is a favourite of many thanks to her extremely helpful YouTube and Instagram tutorials. She loves sharing tips and hacks on how to create the best makeup looks on a budget too. This gorgeous yet gruesome Halloween look by Tammi is one I would love to try. And the key to making this work… Setting spray!

Trick: NYX Professional Makeup Radiant Finish Setting Spray

This £8 beauty bargain is exactly what you need to achieve the best staying power, as well as added radiance. This mist is super lightweight and infused with micro-pearls too, enhancing your complexion with golden hues. What I love most about this setting spray is that it's non-oily, non-sticky and keeps your skin looking and feeling fresh. It’s one of the best priced setting sprays out there and results in a seriously professional-looking finish.

Treat: Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Everyone's favourite high-end setting spray! At £26, it’s a little more expensive than others, but this clever, delicate mist is formulated with temperature control technology that makes it so worth the price tag. It’ll keep your makeup from melting, smudging or fading, whatever the weather! Scarily strong, this setting spray has up to 16 hours of lightweight staying power - just shake the bottle well, close your eyes, hold 8 to 10 inches away and spritz your face two to four times.

Robert Welsh

I could not miss professional MUA Robert Welsh from my list of favourite YouTubers! He’s best known for his authentic, educational videos where he uses his expert experience and knowledge to teach, critique and share ideas on everything beauty! In this look, Robert is giving us a dark, gothic Halloween look, with the most fabulous flawless base! So, of course, I have to share with you my two favourite foundations you can use to recreate this look.

Trick: EX1 Cosmetics Invisiwear Liquid Foundation

Create a beautifully smooth, flawless base with this £6 essential. This foundation is formulated with fierce light diffusers to hide blemishes and blur imperfections. On application, this foundation becomes your second skin - lightweight, breathable, ultra-blendable and buildable! Apply two layers and your base will be so smooth, just like Robert's and the coverage will be spine-tingling. Uniquely designed with 'true colour' pigments, it’s available in a vast range of shades to suit all skin tones - all of which will leave your complexion eerily luminous.

Treat: Too Faced Born This Way Matte 24 Hour Long-Wear Foundation 

Glossies, you’ll love this - it’s my favourite £28 foundation. The coverage of this product is unreal. Blemishes, redness and imperfections will be covered for up to 24 hours - plus it’s waterproof, oil-free and hydrating! Not only does this foundation do its job as a flawless base, but it also has enchanting skincare tendencies. Hyaluronic acid and coconut water invite moisturise into the skin to hydrate and plump, whileAlpine rose empowers your skin to be resilient. Your skin will look as good as it feels.

You know how people say putting on your favourite clothes can instantly boost or change your mood? Well that's how I feel when I put on my favourite makeup. Makeup isn't to cover up, it's to show off our personality - and I love how everyone does their makeup in their own unique way! I never leave the house without a tinted lip balm in hand, and just like everyone right now, I love a good dupe!
