Halloween Makeup Tutorial | Tips on how to get the most ghoulish Halloween look

1. Get inspired. Figure out what kind of creature you will transform into. Take a look at some old-school horror movies for character ideas or pick a classic (like a zombie) and find your favourite interpretation. 2. The tools of the trade. The secret to great make-up and believable special effects has a lot to do with the right tools. A good set of brushes, applicators and adhesives go a long way. 3. A good base is essential. What you put underneath will dictate your whole look so make sure you give it your full attention. Ghost? Go for stark white. Zombie? A hint or grey and green will give you a true “undead” look. A high quality base is especially important if you plan to build up your look with multiple layers and textures as it will help it stick to your face and last all night. 4. Get creative. If you’re new to the face paint or special effects makeup game, look up some tutorials for a step-by-step guide to create your favourite look. It can really help to follow along with a video, especially if it's something complicated. 5. If all else fails… A white base and lips, grey under-eye circles, and two red ‘puncture marks’ on your neck is the ultimate “5 minute vampire” formula. It's easy to do and works every time!
