Halsey presents the Rock Icon Award on stage during the MTV EMAs 2019 at FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre on November 03, 2019 in Seville, Spain.


Halloween is just days away, and while she can't throw her annual bash due to the pandemic, Halsey is preparing for the spookiest night of the year by showing off her artistic talent.

The star took to Twitter on Thursday (Oct. 29) to share two self-done makeup looks, the first inspired by her recent album Manic. While the album's cover art features the singer with one sparkling blue eye look, the Halloween edition features a gooey, bloody hole where her eye once was.

"MANIC, but make it Horror," she captioned the look.

The second look is a realistic interpretation of Emily the Corpse Bride in Tim Burton's eerie 2005 film. "It takes my breath away! Well it would if I had any..." she captioned the stunning makeup job, referencing a line from the movie.

Halsey also took some time to answer some frequently asked questions in her comment section, revealing that "yes I do my own makeup" and "yes I did break out afterwards lmao."

When a fan asked if she went out in public sporting her creepy new look, the singer replied simply, "pls I don't go in public in general."

As for how she learned to do such realistic effects on her face, she shared,"Honestly I was obsessed with the show Face Off in high school and learned how to do a lot of SFX with YouTube tutorials! Combined with having to learn on the fly for music videos and stuff. Like all the SFX for the injuries in the HFK era videos are done by me!"
