#JCITRICKORTREAT: Halloween Makeup Ideas


For many makeup artists, October is the best time of year. At JCI we see Halloween-related posts starting months prior to the big day, and classic looks (like skeletons) are found wandering the halls pretty much year round. Regardless of if you’re a trained MUA or not, dressing up is a great excuse to pull out all the creativity! Makeup can add so much dimension to your costume, and can turn any look into an outstanding one.

If you haven’t figured out what to dress up as just yet, you have 1 weekl! We absolutely cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with. To help inspire you to take their looks up a notch, here are our top Halloween makeup ideas from last year’s #JCITRICKORTREAT contest:
