Boo! All Hallow’s Eve will soon be upon us and if you haven’t prepared your eyeball soup, human brain cupcakes and ghoulish meringues yet, it’s time to get a move on.

As for your Halloween costume, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite Youtube tutorials to inspire your ensemble. And if you think that Halloween fancy dress and your trusty specs don’t go together, think again.

Here are 4 amazing Halloween makeup looks for glasses wearers! From a zombie nerd to a scary geeky clown, there are plenty of cool makeup ideas for this year’s Halloween party…

Zombie Nerd Makeup

For a Halloween party outfit that will both impress and scare, we just love Youtuber Breland’s step by step tutorial. Slightly on the advanced side, you have to be comfortable with working with glue and latex but once you get the hang of it, you’ll find it to be a doddle.

This zombie nerd / dead schoolgirl look is perfect for teaming with specs too so if you don’t want to leave your trusty prescription glasses behind, watch Breland’s tutorial and team with some geek chic glasses, like our cheap and cheerful Savannah 2444 frames for just £10.00!

Barb from Stranger Things

If you haven’t watched Netflix-original Stranger Things yet, you probably won’t get the fascination with Barb. But for those who have, this nerdy 80s character is a serious Netflix celeb! And as the series is a quirky sci-fi horror, we think this fancy dress tutorial is ideal for Halloween.

Follow this hair and makeup tutorial by Youtube star Miss K Michael and get your hands on some nerdy vintage specs like these Blue Ribbon BR5 Barb inspired specs.

Sadness from Inside Out

This look is more solemn than scary and we think it’s such a great dress up idea if you want something that is kid-friendly. If gore is not your thing, why not try this super sad, cheerless and totally sombre look?

The blue face paint is so much fun and it makes a great costume for spectacle wearers. Get the look with the Hallmark HY81092 glasses, available in Purple/Blue.

Halloween Clown

For a quick and easy Halloween makeup look that is both easy to do and works well with glasses, we just love the glitter clown by Miss Chloe Louise. All you need is a makeup palette, some glitter and basic face paints.

The makeup is so easy to achieve and will look fabulous with a pair of simple black specs like these Infinity A2015 frames.
