Forget spending a small fortune on some new, ordered-online costume. Scare your Halloween squad with a makeup look stolen straight from social media. Yeah, you’ll need some patience, and a colourful makeup palette (Harry Potter brushes, optional), but the how-to videos uploaded to the interwebs, by amateur and expert makeup artists alike, are seriously impressive.
Here are 17 of the most awesome DIY Halloween makeup tutorials for looks that you can actually pull off this Halloween.
The first male Cover Girl model, James Charles gives us a great, cheeky Halloween face that frightens and makes a seriously bold statement.
THE GLOW UP THO… ✨ WOW Today marks my one year anniversary of the first time I ever tried makeup on myself. Never in a million years would I have ever imagined to be here from posting pic on the left. It’s crazy to see how much I’ve improved and grown as both a person and artist. I’ve had so many amazing opportunities and met so many amazing people in the past year and CANNOT wait to tell you guys about a few amazing projects coming soon. 400,000 people in one year. Thank you all so much I can’t even begin to explain how much you all mean to me. Imagine where we’ll be in another year? Holy crap. Y’all truly do fricken rock.
The creep factor is high even with just two colours of makeup: red and white. Use a red powdery texture around the eyes and hairline, and blend liquid red below the eyes and mouth. Highlight with white. Boom!
Eva Lamorte’s “Marked Witch” makeup look is creepy and beautiful all at the same time.
🕸will you still love me when I’m no longer young⚓️️ Hi Frands! Thanks so much for the love on my Marked Witch! Here’s a little vid action of the look! Hope you dig it! 🕷 Products used: @katvondbeauty tattoo liner in trooper Lashes from @sugarpill @starcrushedminerals mettalic shadow in Full Metal Jacket Highlighter in ice breaker. @sauceboxcosmetics etude pallete for eyes @nyxcosmetics Suede Cream Lipstick in ‘Stone Fox,’ Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation, Hot Singles Eyeshadow in ‘Turnt Up,’ Jumbo Eye Pencil in ‘Milk,’ HD Studio Finishing Powder.

And so is her “Help Me” look. It really is all about the blending… and ultra unnerving yellowed teeth.
Glambyroxy does a seriously mean pink skeleton. Intricate shading optional, but highly recommended.

Minions are still totes adorbs, right? (And we’re still saying “totes adorb,” right?)
We’re sure Suicide Squad‘s Harley Quinn will be a popular Halloween costume. Maybe more so than Hillary and Trump, though not likely.
a timelapse of my harley quinn bodypaint from the other day:) this was inspired by art by @anabeebop! i totally appreciate all the love ive gotten on this one!! ✨💀 ALSO! ive had a lot of people asking me what i use for my white bodypaint – ive tried so many brands & white is just hard to work in general with BUT i do love @mehronmakeup’s paradise AQ in white:) my trick is that i powder a layer of white setting powder down first (i love mehron’s white setting powder), then i paint a thin layer of white, powder again, and paint over with white again. i always finish with more setting powder. white & yellow are just hard colors to get to cover so apply it slow and let it fully dry inbetween!
A cartoon-y look can be the perfect mix of creepy and cool, and this one-sided exposed-teeth look is the perfect example.
Super creepy. Super awesome. This quick and effective DIY makeup lesson (and your kids’ nightmares) comes from Emily Clayton (aka @vanityvenom).
This one’s not too complicated and not too scary. Just perfect for the mom with young children. Makeup artist Jessica Rose calls this the Cutie Pie Pumpkin look, and Cutie Pie it is.
Cutie Pie Pumpkin 🎃 A nice simple look for Halloween if you’re looking for something not too scary!

Here’s a cute and creative version of Emma Bloom from the new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, put together by @jordanhanz’ mad skills. It looks challenging but doable–TBH, we’d be happy with just one or two of these painted-on bubbles.
Hey guys, Happy Loop Day! I’m partnering with FOX to bring you a series of peculiar makeup looks in honor of the release of @peregrinesmovie! I was incredibly inspired by the many different characters, and all of the special traits that makes each one unique. The movie is directed by Tim Burton, and we all know just how much of an impact his films have had on the world of makeup and transformation. The characters are much like ourselves with different peculiarities, and these make us powerful. Today’s transformation video is on how to create your own Emma Bloom makeup look. In the first scene of the trailer she uses her power to fill an entire sunken ship with breathable air. This scene inspired me to produce the bubbles in paint. Show me how you express your peculiarity and use #StayPeculiar
You’re going to need ALL the blue makeup to nail Two Face, but it’ll be worth it. Trust us.
Yeah, these pop art faces were big on the Halloween circuit last year, but we’re employing them again this year because they’re so darn easy and so darn cool.

Liquid latex, safety pins and red lipstick go a long way. @katosu shows us how.
