Halloween Week: Best Halloween Make Up and Costumes Out There

So, seeing as our second favorite holiday is rolling up, we here at Top Design Magazine have decided that we are going to spend this entire week celebrating it. Yup, that’s right, we are doing a full blown Halloween Week on Top Design Magazine. What does that mean? Well, basically that we’ve been scouring the Internet far and wide in order to find the most interesting and inspirational Halloween related images available.

First stop? Halloween make up and costumes, of course. The 31st of October, also known as All Hallows’ Eve has been in our calendars as a celebration ever since the dawn of Christianity. To be more exact, many scholars are saying that Christians merely adopted Celtic harvest festivals and renamed them the Feast of All Hollows’ Day, which was later contracted to the more commercialized form we all know and love: Halloween.

There’s little doubt that Halloween has indeed become quite a commercial success, with all the candy, the decorations, the costumes and the parties, everybody is spending money on Halloween. Still, let’s not forget that the basis of this particular celebration are fear, dread and all around terror. Why? Because the widely recognized jack-o’-lantern symbolizes the souls of the dead, the costumes are supposed to keep humans safe by hiding them from malevolent spirits and, of course, the veil between life and death is thinner on this night than on any other night of the year. Bloody brilliant, neh? Well, in perfect keeping with the somber and terrifying tone of Halloween, people out there attending parties and going trick-or-treating are constantly trying to come up with the best, most creative and most shocking ways to disguise themselves. Naturally, one of the best ways to go about drastically changing your appearance is by applying makeup and lots of it.

Following are the best examples of Halloween makeup that we’ve dug up online so far. If any of you guys have some other cool examples to show us, don’t hesitate to share your images with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Now, makeup is tricky and it can take a lot of time and skill to get it just right, this is why the fallback of having a completely kickass costume is a must. Costumes are also important because the way you choose the one that you are going to wear at the party you are going to attend will speak volumes about you whether you like it or not. The perfect example of what I mean is the girls who just use Halloween as an excuse to dress “sexier” (I am trying to keep the language all age appropriate, of course) than usual as opposed to the girls who actually go out of their way to create a costume that says “look at me” in a completely different way. Then there are those pure geniuses that have no costume 12 hours into the 31st of October and just pull out last minute gems that remain committed to memory permanently.

Without further ado, here are our picks for best costumes, let us know what yours were.
