17 Halloween Makeup Tutorials So Cool You Won’t Even Need A Costume

Halloween costumes (meaning clothes and various accessories) are awesome. Some of them are even beyond awesome. But you know what is a little unexpected and seriously takes some skill? A detailed, realistic, very interesting Halloween makeup look. Sometimes these makeup looks are so good that you don’t even need to pair them with a costume. You can just put on all black or another solid color, and everyone will be so impressed by the makeup you did that they won’t even notice your clothes.

For example, last week I got to check out these crazy sick looks from the Makeup Forever team, and I was totally blown away. So blown away, in fact, that I am considering letting my makeup take center stage this Halloween. Here’s an example of one of them:

Amazing, right? Right. While I don’t have that tutorial for you, I do have other ones.

If you try these this year, be prepared for all of the stares. Here are 17 Halloween makeup tutorials so cool you won’t even need a costume:
