Spooky season is back and better than ever! Now that the world is slowly returning to normal, celebrating Halloween is back on the agenda in full swing.

If you're participating in Halloween festivities this weekend but don't have a costume or makeup look yet, I've got you covered. Here are four fun and festive Halloween makeup looks to sport this spooky season:

Violet Beauregarde from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

What better way to take on Halloween than as the gum-chewing, blueberry-turning queen Violet herself?

Violet's blueberry makeup look is not only easy to recreate but also super iconic. All you need is blue and purple or indigo eyeshadow and a high shimmer highlighter, like the Hard Candy Diamond highlighter.

Focusing on the nose, pack on an indigo eyeshadow to cover your nose and make it completely, well, violet! Then, to add some dimension, blend out the shadow across the nose bridge toward the center of your face with a blue shadow.

Top off the look with some glittery highlight on the nose, brow bone and inner corner of the eye to add some shine. And if you're recreating the inspiration picture, blend out shimmery pink with a neutral brown shade onto your lids and pop on some falsies for a glamorous touch.

Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family

This Halloween, you could be everyone's favorite goth girl — Wednesday Addams! The base for this look is a dark smokey eye, using lots of deep brown shades and black. Make sure to blend out the shadow under the eyes to give the illusion of dark circles, too!

Black eyeliner in the waterline and a thick black wing are a must to give off the perfect spooky girl vibes, and the perfect eyeliner for this look is NYX Epic Wear Liquid Liner (it's only $10!) Some false lashes or mascara, like my go-to Milk Makeup Kush Mascara, go a long way.

Finish the look off with some black lipstick (you can find this for super cheap at a Halloween costume shop or online), or if you're on a budget, you can use a black eyeliner pencil and fill in your lips with that.

Sexy skull

You can never go wrong with a classic! Elevate your classic skeleton makeup look with these sultry details, and you'll be sure to turn heads.

You only need two products for this look: black eye shadow and either a very light shade of concealer or white face paint.

Start off by covering your face with the light shade of concealer or white face paint, including your lips. Next, go in with the black shadow and give yourself a smokey eye, blending the shadow under your eyes to give them a deeper, sunken look. Then, go in with the black where you would with contour to hollow out your cheekbones and make them pop.

For the mouth, draw a long black line across your mouth, going all the way to the edges of your cheeks. Then, add smaller vertical lines to give the illusion of the teeth on a skeleton. Finally, fill in your nose with a black shadow in a triangular shape. And just like that, you are a sexy skeleton ready to get your spook on.

Olivia Rodrigo "SOUR" album cover

Rodrigo has taken the world by storm this past year, so it seems more than fitting to honor her this Halloween by dressing up as her.

Rodrigo's "SOUR" album cover is known for its iconic imagery of her face covered in stickers with the word "sour" in stickers on her tongue. This is a super easy look to recreate and is great if you're on a budget!

All you need is a sheet of stickers that you can get at the dollar store, or if you have any lying around, you can use those too. Place the stickers all over your forehead and cheeks, and if you really want to channel Rodrigo, spell "sour" on your tongue.

Halloween is the perfect time to step out of your comfort zone with your looks, so remember to have fun with your makeup looks and be creative!
