It's spooky season, which means celebrities are serving us beauty looks on a sparkling platter. Halloween is hands down one of the most *extra* times of the year—it gives everyone, stars included, an excuse to live out their alter ego dreams and be whoever they want to be with the help of hair and makeup. And with Halloween costumes, there are endless possibilities when it comes to beauty; celebs and their ever-talented glam teams truly play to win when it comes to doing it up. This year, the looks are surprisingly simple if you're in a last-minute bind and looking for some inspo. Scroll on and see the celebrities that are already catching everyone's eyes with fire Halloween beauty looks on Instagram.

Is it just me or would you wear Lovato's bloodshot ombré lip on any given day? Same. The piercing red contacts, though, not so much.
