Some of us love DIY Hallowen costumes while others prefer to use their makeup skills to impress on October 31. If you prefer to treat (or maybe trick) with your makeup brushes, then you probably know that there are a ton of Halloween makeup looks to play around with.
Zipper looks, skulls, animals, princesses, unicorns. You name it, you can create an awesome makeup look for Halloween. While unicorns and mermaids will undoubtedly be hot looks this year, butterflies are an oh-so-pretty look for Halloween. They’re especially great if you’re not into all the blood, guts, and gore. However, if you’re after a ~*spookier*~ look, you can create one using a butterfly base, too. Basically, no matter your mood, you can get a butterfly look to create it. Have a look at 18 butterfly makeup looks that would look awesome on Halloween…or at any festival.
1. Pink and Purple Butterfly Makeup
Summertime inspired butterfly 🦋👩🎤✌️ It's been a minute since I've done any face painting… so this afternoon I seized the moment. Thank you @jordanhanz for the inspo! . . .. … .. . . #makeup #facepainting #bodypainting #fantasymakeup #makeupartist #halloween #butterfly #butterflymakeup #summermakeup #summer #lloydminstermakeup #lloydminster #yll #albertamakeup #saskmakeup #dowahtyoulove #mua #motd #insta
Why stop at your face? Continue the butterfly makeup down your neck.
2. Butterfly and Skull Makeup
Cannot decide between butterfly and skull makeup? Don’t. Wear both to one party.
3. Red Butterfly Face Paint
Top marks for coordinating the face paint with the lips and cardigan. And a gold star for the arty photo.
4. Half Butterfly Makeup
@the_wigs_and_makeup_manager + @face_lace Collab!! Deciding which of her amazing creations to use as a starting point was the only difficulty of collaborating with such a talent as @the_wigs_and_makeup_manager AKA Vanessa Davis! We mutually decided on a Butterfly motif – a favourite for both of us. We had so much FUN and excitement at the Face Lace studio together. We wanted to make something full of our Dazzle Material that Vanessa loves so much, and also use her trademark jaw design which is so hauntingly beautiful. We also wanted to make it as easy for you to use as possible. This is the crystallised version which is only available on the @face_lace website, there is also a non-crystallised version- We hope you all LOVE it! photos by @matthewshave Hair by @patrickforini makeup Phyllis @face_lace model @ellenburton_ @profilemodels film @parmesan_chic music by Leon Haxby @no_face808 #collab #MUAtogether #teamwork #vanessadavis #phylliscohen #vanessaandphyllis #skulltressandfacelace #mariposa #easyhalloween #glamhalloween #halloween2017 #skullmakeup #crystalskull #makeupinspo #prettyhalloween #butterflyskull #butterflymakeup #supersparkly #crystals #swarovski
This shimmering butterfly look rocks from the side. When you see it straight on and realize that it’s a half-face look, it gets even cooler.
5. “Butterfly Maze” Makeup
Butterfly maze. I'm not really sure where I got the inspiration for this one. I should have put eyeshadow on for this, but I still like! I used Mehron paradise paint. A paper butterfly from the dollar store. And gold flake sheet from Michael's art store. #facepainting #fantasymakeup #makeup #makeupartist #mua #facepainting #gold #mehrongirl #mehronmakeup #photoshoot #photographer #butterflymakeup #butterfly #art #artists
The chest tattoo definitely adds to the look, but without the ink, all of those swirling lines look fierce AF.
6. Butterfly Nose Makeup
Proof that you don’t need a full face of butterfly makeup to make a statement. The Victorian vibe is also very cool.
7. Creepy Butterfly Makeup
This makeup is one part butterfly, one part Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. It might sound random, but it works.
8. Pale Purple Butterfly Skull Makeup
For people who think that butterfly makeup might be a tad too pretty for Halloween, try this skull version.
9. Butterfly Eyebrows Makeup
We met so many incredible MUA's at @imatsofficial and have been so thrilled to see how they have used our products! Here is @zoellen_art Using #holographicbrows we make specially for @imatsofficial and our #iridisa and #batterfly design in a lush and elegant look with gorgeous colour tones inspired by @missfamenyc #zoellen_art #makeupart #holographic #facelace #makeuplover #butterfly #facejewelry #missfame #missfamenyc #butterflymakeup
Don’t think you have the skill to use your liquid liner to create an elaborate butterfly design? Use pre-made pieces. Then glue on some holographic eyebrows. Just because.
10. Yellow Butterfly Makeup
It’s as much about the intricate black eyeliner as it is the yellow gradient. Notice the lines on her neck?
11. Purple Butterfly Eye Makeup
Butterfly 🦋🦋🦋 used @limecrimemakeup velvetines in #thistle and #squash as well as the @wetnwildbeauty liquid liners in black and white. I mapped out the black outline, filled in the gradient colors where I wanted them to be and then darkened the black lines and added white liquid liner for the dots overtop. I then added glitter with glitter glue in the corresponding color sections. #butterfly #butterflymakeup #sfx #halloweenmakeup #limecrime #featuremymakeupart #underratedmakeupbabes
Check out the way the icy blue lip plays up the color in the wings.
12. Blue and Pink Butterfly Makeup
The way this butterfly makeup is half on the nose makes it for me.
13. Orange Butterfly “Mask” Makeup
Better than any actual mask. Fact.
14. Red and Yellow Butterfly Makeup
Make sure you use some heavy duty face paint for this look if you want to eat and drink, okay?
15. Orange Butterfly Eyes and Lips Makeup
Those lips though…
16. Green Butterfly Makeup
No matter what color(s) you create your butterfly makeup with, it will turn out dazzling.
17. “The Anti-Social Butterfly” Makeup

Can we just talk for a second about how fantastic this name is? And is it weird to say that there’s something cute about those butterflies going into her face?
18. Butterfly and Neon Skull Makeup
I couldn't decide if want to create a neon, lace, or half butterfly skull so here's all of them in one 💖 Wig from @powderroomd lashes are #starlet from @houseoflashes ✨ Glitter/pearls/glitter gel from @jazzy_glitter @theglitterarmy @bohoglitterboutique 🙌 Paints from @mehronmakeup and @dfxfaceart 💕 Used @thekatvond @katvondbeauty #pastelgothpalette
