5 Makeup Trends That are so Scary, You can use Them This Halloween

It’s true, the makeup industry is changing constantly. That means weird trends go in and out of fashion all the time. While some of these trends end up lasting for more than a few months, most of them sputter out in just a few weeks. Here are 5 makeup trends so scary, you can use them to complete your costume this Halloween.

1. Wavy Brows

YouTuber Tina Yong shows us just how put this trend into action. Wavy brows were all the rage on Instagram the last few weeks, and we think they fit more with a scary Halloween costume, not out and about on normal days. Even hot publications like Marie Claire tapped into this hilarious trend! What do you think of these brows?

3. Full Face Highlighter
