15 Amazing Halloween Makeup Tutorials That Will Take Your Costume To The Next Level

You could come up with the coolest Halloween costume idea ever, but if you don’t have the makeup to go along with it, it just won’t look as great. I mean, you can’t just dress up as a zombie without putting fake blood and black makeup all over your face (luckily, we have Caitlin’s amazing zombie tutorial here!). And you can put on all black, a tail and ears, but without some cat makeup, you really won’t impress anyone.

I know that elaborate makeup can seem intimidating, but these tutorials are great even if you’re not an expert. Plus, costume makeup is more fun to play around with because it’s meant to look dramatic and exaggerated – it’s okay if you mess up a little bit. Here are 15 amazing Halloween makeup tutorials that will take your costume to the next level:
