It’s spooky season

We’ve all fallen into the rabbit hole of endlessly watching TikToks for an amount of time we would rather not admit to. With Halloween just around the corner, we’ve officially entered spooky season, and TikTok is right on track with spooky content to keep you entertained and in the Halloween mood. 

Here are some Halloween challenges that will keep you up at night. You’ve been warned…

Try your hand at perfecting some crazy SFX makeup

With looks so creepy and realistic, try to recreate some of TikTok user @jannet.regina looks, and your own reflection might haunt you. 

For more daily makeup looks to try out at different skill levels, check out other TikTok makeup artists like @noordabashh.

Learn the new spooky scary skeleton dance

This new dance trend will definitely have you up all night trying to perfect your moves. Get creative with it and try adding some fun transitions and animations to your dance to get some extra Halloween vibes.

Get great Insta-worthy pics with a spooky photoshoot 

The ghost photoshoot trend is a fun and spooky viral challenge you need to check it out! Get a white sheet and some sunglasses, and you’re good to go. Make sure you choose a good location, like an empty road or a wooded area, and add a dark, spooky filter for extra effect.

This spooky photoshoot is based off of the Halloween horror movie favourite IT and it’s another great option to try out. This one was done by one of Humber’s very own Digital Communications students @rebeccasmedia. 

Make some yummy sweet treats

One of the best parts of Halloween is all the candy and treats you get to eat. Get some inspo on TikTok and challenge yourself to make some sweet treats of your own. All the sugar will definitely have you staying up all night, but it’s worth it, right?

Decorate to give chills

TikTok has been a great place to find cool decorating tips & tricks. This Halloween, check out how other TikTok users are decorating and decorate your space to give you chills (on a budget of course)! 

Create some creepy skits 

If you’re a storyteller, get creative and make some creepy skits of your own. Now’s your chance to let that imagination run wild.
