Editor’s Note: The face masks we share below are non-medical masks and are not a replacement for medical-grade personal protective equipment. We recommend you follow the latest advice and safety guidelines mandated by the CDC and your own healthcare professionals as to how best to keep yourself safe.
Run amok, amok, amok sporting the spooktastic smiles of the Sanderson sisters this All Hallows' Eve. Throw on Winifred’s wicked pucker, Mary’s crooked grin or Sarah’s starry smile on your pursuit for sweet treats. Round out the costume with kohl-lined eyes, dramatic capes, floor-length gowns and an iconic wig to match your mystical muse.
Transform into Mary Shelley’s monster masterpiece with this gruesome, green grin. Pair this monster mask with black or olive makeup on your face and hands while sporting black trousers, black boots and a green jacket or blazer. Make DIY monster bolts by securing a pair of hexagon cardboard cut-outs covered in aluminum foil to the base of a black headband with glue.
Give the classic tiger costume an edgy and unexpected twist with this graphic face mask. Complete the fierce feline costume by painting a long-sleeve black, white or orange t-shirt with bold stripes and wear black legging or jeans for bottoms. Top the look with a pair of striped ears, gold-glitter eyeshadow and a statement cat-eye liner.
Get your flower power on for your hippie Halloween costume with this gorgeous, floral-embroidered face mask. The handmade face mask features a statement-making sunflower design that is sure to perk-up printed maxi dresses, bell-sleeve sweaters and funky flare jeans. All that’s missing is a groovy crochet vest, round sunglasses and a lush, wildflower crown to top off the look.
Mummifying is made simple with the help of this spooky-cute face mask. Create a mummy costume using a black or white sweatsuit as your base. Cover the sweats with layers of ripped, tea-dyed cloth strips to mirror mummy wrappings. Achieve corpse-like appeal using black, gray and purple eyeshadow to create next-level dark circles beneath your eyes, and pack a generous coat of translucent or fair setting powder to effectively drain any signs of life out of your complexion.
Giddy-up, partner! The iconic red-and-white bandana print offers the picture-perfect polishing touch to your cowboy or cowgirl ensemble. Pair the bold mask with a button-down chambray top, a comfy pair of jeans or leggings, Western boots and, of course, a 10-gallon hat.
Inspire fear in your peers with this grim-yet-glam vampire face mask. The white mask features bold, black lips and frightening fangs and serves as a seamless complement to trailing black dresses, raven wigs and bloodstains. Add a convincing touch to your undead outfit with smoky lids and sharp, angular facial contouring using gray eyeshadow.
Throw on a flirty cat-eye liner, false lashes and this feline face mask to transform into an ominous black cat in a flash. Wear all-black clothing and slide on pointy ears, and you’re ready to prowl the neighborhood for sweets and treat on All Hallows' Eve.
This bone-chilling skeleton face mask features a bold backdrop for white bones that paint a picture of horror across the wearer’s face. Take a minimalist approach with a black t-shirt, or go all out and use makeup or face paint to create hollowed eye sockets and throw on a bone-clad bodysuit or painted sweatsuit to complete the look.
Make a splash with a scary (cute) shark costume using this toothy face mask. The gray mask sports a set of razor-sharp teeth jutting from pink gums. Wear gray sweats or a turtleneck on top and charcoal pants or leggings on the bottom. Use a headband and cardboard to create a savvy dorsal fin before heading out to sea for treats.
I’m dubbing this design the “shy kid special” because the sweet stitching basically does all the talking for bashful little ones. Throw this on your quietest kiddo with a black turtleneck, matching pants or a whimsical tulle skirt and pumpkin-orange costume jewelry for a festive look they’ll feel comfortable in.
