There's a fairly good chance we'll still need to be wearing facial masks on Halloween, but that's OK. There are plenty of ways to incorporate a cloth mask into your costume. After all, wearing one on Halloween isn't anything new, just the reason for wearing one this year is. Instead of doing it solely for aesthetic purposes, wearing a face mask this holiday will help keep you safe from COVID-19, too.

Many Halloween makeup ideas are already centered around wearing a mask — simply layer a reusable one under the existing part of your costume to protect yourself and others against the virus — and the ones that aren't can easily be adapted to include it. Looking to be a skeleton this Halloween? Wear a skull-printed mask or try drawing your own skull design on a plain white fabric mask. If anything, look at it as an excuse to only have to put makeup on the upper half of your face.

Ahead, we're sharing a few Halloween makeup ideas that can easily be worn with a face mask.
