Halloween is the one day it’s ok to completely transform yourself into whatever you want to be. With so many options, it’s a difficult decision of what to choose. One of our favorite go-tos is the ultimate glam bombshell—we’re talking full 1920s starlet. Here, makeup guru Charlotte Tilbury gives us tips for an iconic, sultry look perfect to build a costume around.

Get The Look With Charlotte

"For a glam bombshell Halloween look, take inspiration from the iconic Jessica Rabbit and create an elongated cat-eye, full flirtatious lashes and a seductive, alluring red lip.”


"Start by curling your lashes–this acts like a push-up bra for the eyes–and line the upper lash line using my 'Feline Flick' Quick Fine Line Shodõ Pen for the perfect stroke. Take your look to the next level by further extending the wing and adding false lashes. Your look isn't complete without my Full Fat Lashes mascara. For sexy flutter, work the wand diagonally outwards from the corner of the eyes. You can never have too many coats!"


"This look is all about the lips. Shape and enhance your pout by tracing around the natural lip line with my Lip Cheat in Kiss 'N' Tell for a voluptuous kisser in seconds. Fill in with my K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in So Marilyn and finish with a slick of lip gloss for a sumptuous effect."


"Get killer cheekbones with a precision brush and my Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Start by sucking in your cheeks and following the hollows with the natural bronze Sculpt shade. Dust the Highlight shade on the high cheeks, down the bridge of the nose and on the cupid’s bow for luminous, candlelit skin."

Bombshell Pairings

"Complete your look with a wavy red wig, a leopard dress and matching stilettos."
