Our first look transports you straight into the jungle, with a gorgeous set of leopard print eyes. Rather than wearing a mask with the pattern, why not draw it yourself to truly encapsulate the look? Using brown eyeliner, draw some leopard spots all over your lid. Next, outline each spot with black eyeliner, and voila, you're a beautiful creature right out of the jungle.

The next look stemmed from the classic devil character, but we're taking it to a whole new level. Start by applying red eyeshadow to your lid, then add a defined crease with a darker red shade. Use lipstick to add some horns above your eyebrow; Either above one or both eyes.

Now it's time to get really spooky, with this Frankenstein-inspired makeup. To depict the character's transition from human to monster, we're going with half Frankenstein and half glamourous. Apply green face paint to one side of your face, then outline this section with fake blood or red eyeliner. Add some stitches to the border with black and white eyeliner and create a classic smokey eye, using green shades.

The last look we want to show you is a creepy spider, emerging right from your face. Start by applying your usual face makeup as a base. Then add a dark smokey eye, with a hint of green or red, using bottom eyeliner. Then use black and white eyeliner to add the spider's legs, and you'll have your friends thinking there's an actual spider on your face!
