The 20 Most Amazing Galaxy Makeup Looks You’ll Ever See

Just like anything else in the beauty world, Halloween makeup trends come and go. This year, the most popular Halloween beauty looks seem to be deer, unicorns, Snapchat filters, skeletons, and galaxy makeup. I love all of these options – they are all unique and gorgeous in their own way! – but my favorite has to be the galaxy makeup. I can’t talk about the embarrassing amount of time I’ve spent lusting after these magical looks on Instagram and Pinterest. The colors, the blending, the sparkles, the little stars… the sheer amount of creativity there is amazing! If I could do galaxy makeup half as well as these ladies, I would for sure do it for October 31. I’m okay with makeup, but I’m not that good.

Whether you can do these yourself at home like a pro, or you’re just looking for pure enjoyment, these galaxy makeup looks are a must-see. These looks are so impressive that, honestly, no costume is required to make you the best dressed of any group. I don’t want to make a weird jokey pun that, like, everyone else on the Internet has already made, but I can’t help myself: these are out of this world! Okay, I’m sorry, I had to get it out of my system. Anyway, check out these incredible galaxy makeup looks for some serious inspiration:
