I look forward to Halloween every year.  There’s something about getting dressed up and completely transforming that I simply can’t resist.  Every year, I try to do something different, and it is typically with my bestie and partner and crime Damion Walters. While I absolutely love everything about Halloween, its always a challenge finding Halloween makeup inspiration photos of guys and gals that have dark skin (like me).

I figured that if I have this challenge, other people do to, so I’ve put together a few halloween makeup inspiration photos of people with dark skin as well as a few looks I’ve recreated in the past with the help of the talented Sherlyn Torres and Aarti Matola.

Check out these looks below and let me know what you think! Also, if you have any other Halloween Makeup inspiration recommendations for darker skin, I’d looooove to see them!

Note, all photos were found on Pinterest, and if I’m in the photo it is my own 🙂

    A little Ulta Mac Maybelline goes a long way when it comes to Halloween. I rocked a pirate costume this year and my black eyeliner made for some faux stitches and a winning look. Took 1st place! Hey now! ‪#BLMGirl
