Halloween is upon us, and I’m sure you have already figured out what you will be this year.  Therefore, this means you are also looking at makeup ideas. I used to think there was nothing more sexy than transforming into a feline, but scrolling through my Instagram feed has made it pretty hard for me to stick to that claim. Makeup is a form of expression, which can truly transform and evoke emotional reactions, and can make or break your costume. So whether you are looking for some out-of-the-box or last minute halloween makeup ideas to truly impress, here are a few spooktacular work of art we found on Instagram.

The makeup artist nailed this Betty Boop look. Not to mention, this is the best hidden eyebrows using Elmer’s Glue. Photo from @ellarie on Instagram


The Evil Queen & Cruella Devil

These two looks make you forget that we are supposed to hate these two Disney women villains. Photo from @nikkietutorials on Instagram
