Although we may be experiencing one of the most nontraditional Halloweens to-date this quarantine, that hasn’t stopped makeup artists on Instagram from embracing the spooky spirit of All Hallows Eve from the comfort of their homes.
To prove that Halloween is certainly not cancelled this year, BACARDÍ Rum challenged makeup artists and Halloween enthusiasts – @mac_daddyy, @kamilabravo, @makeupbyamarie, and@shablamgela – to spice up their at-home Halloween looks and bring their quarantine festivities to the next level.
In honor of the main event on October 31st – inspired by the brand’s latest lively addition to the rum portfolio, BACARDÍ Spiced, and limited-edition Halloween glow-in-the-dark BACARDÍ Superior bottle – the makeup artists and their partners took to Instagram to show followers around the globe how they’ve spiced up their looks for Halloween with a hauntingly delicious rum cocktail in hand.
Mixing up cocktails as the Pineapple Potion made with BACARDÍ Spiced, the BACARDÍ Zombie made with BACARDÍ Superior & BACARDÍ Black, and The Goblin made with BACARDÍ Superior, these makeup fanatics recaptured the spirit of Halloween, proving that you can still get dressed up and have fun, even from home.

Inspiration: Inspired by BACARDÍ Spiced and the limited-edition BACARDÍ Superior haunted rum bottle, the duo donned looks that played up the black and charred red colors of the spiced rum bottle, as well as a sinister Jack-O-Lantern look with shades of burnt orange and black to mimic the glow-in-the-dark bottle!

Inspiration: A take on Gomez and Morticia Addams, but with a 1920s twist – these looks are inspired by The Goblin cocktail and the limited-edition BACARDÍ Superior haunted rum bottle. The dynamic duo rises again to enjoy a modern-day quarantine Halloween Zoom party with a delicious BACARDÍ rum cocktail in hand.

Inspiration: Lydia’s look is symbolic of the BACARDÍ Spiced bottle – a sharp contrast to Ashley’s personal style and a spiced-up version of her normal look – pushing her outside her comfort zone to complement the sweet and spicy palate of the rum. Beetlejuice, on the other hand, with his pale skin and suit jacket embodies the crisp and dry liquid of the limited-edition BACARDÍ Superior haunted rum bottle.
