Very rarely do you get to use the wild, vibrant colors that sit untouched in your makeup palette, so take advantage this Halloween and get artistic with your makeup. Here are 10 of my favorite Youtube makeup tutorials. Get inspired and get creative this year!
Zombie/Dead Girl Look by Nikkie Tutorials
You may think zombies are overrated, but you are wrong. Have you ever seen 28 Days Later? Zombies are no joke, and thankfully with shows like The Walking Dead and these engagement photos that went viral, it’s a pretty trendy costume idea. Look to this tutorial for all your zombie makeup needs.
Showgirl/Fantasy Peacock Eyes by Lisa Eldridge
As much as it pains me to say it, dressing up like a cat for Halloween is not going to cut it this year, unless you’re going as Lil’ Bub, which would be awesome. This Peacock makeup tutorial is insane, in a good way.
Cleopatra by MakeupGeek TV
With all of the Lindsay Lohan press, we know Liz Taylor will be on the minds of many as they pick out their costumes. But don’t be any old version of Liz Taylor. Be Liz Taylor as Cleopatra. That version is fierce as hell.
Seductive Vampire by Michelle Phan
I’m sorry, but putting in a pair of plastic fangs and calling yourself a vampire is just plain lazy. Put some effort into Halloween this year with some frightening (but still kinda hot) vampire makeup. Plus, this tutorial is by Michelle Phan, so you know it’s going to be good.
Twilight Fairy Makeup by Charismastar
Want a pretty, feminine Halloween look while still participating in all the costume fun? Try this fairy tutorial. The breathy, child-like narrating might freak you out, but the makeup technique is on the money.
Betty Boop by Kandee Johnson
Even if you weren’t planning on going as Betty Boop, this tutorial might change your mind.
Poison Ivy by Glitterdollz7
If Kim Kardashian didn’t completely ruin the Poison Ivy costume for you, then try this tutorial’s version of the makeup.
Hunger Games Capitol by Panacea81
The official slacker Halloween costume this year is Katniss, so Hunger Games fans, put down your bow and arrow and play this Captiol makeup tutorial, instead.
Mermaid by Pixiwoo
Not only does this lady know her way around a makeup palette, but she has an accent that makes her sound like a total cosmetics expert.
Nicki Minaj From Beez In The Trap Video by Makeup By Leina Baaaby
For the gal that would rather be a celeb than a fictional character, this Nicki Minaj tutorial will work just fine. I also like how specific the title is. I mean, seriously, there are about 100 different ways one can go with the Nicki costume.
