Creepy Halloween Makeup Ideas
It’s almost Halloween! Makeup ideas for women and men are all over, but sometimes they can be a bit freaky.

Halloween Face Makeup Ideas
If you are looking for easy-to-do Halloween makeup, this look is fairly simple to recreate and doesn’t necessarily need to be applied by a professional. Halloween makeup can be understated yet still give nods to being eerie. Add in the location of Raven’s Roost in Virginia, and you have a gorgeous setting for your own mysterious engagement session or elopement.
The story told in the photos below is up for the interpretation of the viewer. Is it someone whose love for the bride still lingers? Is it a ghostly onlooker longing for a love of his own?
