It’s that time. Fantasy and fun beckon. An excuse to put on the Ritz, Halloween.


The red clown nose is the world’s smallest mask. A simple, foam red nose and you are in costume! And you probably can get one at the local drugstore.

Halloween has gotten to be so popular that Halloween shops spring up for a month all around everywhere, where you can get wigs, make-up supplies and kits, as well as costumes and accessories.

In addition to candy and greeting cards dressing up to celebrate this season is something I really look forward to doing. I am also a make-up artist and character comic, so make-up is one of my passions. And I found some of the most awesomely creepy Halloween make-up video tutorials, as well as some extraordinary make-up artists. Here they are…

Mild warning: If you’re easily scared / grossed out, this post is not for you! Some of the disturbing Halloween makeup sequences ahead; proceed at your own risk.

1. Unzipped Makeup Tutorial | Josh(ua) ‘Petrilude

Josh is a truly gifted theatrical and fine-art make-up artist. I suspect that he can create anything, living art. The tutorial that caught my attention is his video tutorial ‘UnZipped.’

You can make a whole character mostly out of the face make-up. Then you can simply dress all in black, weather appropriate.

2. Corpse Bride Makeup for Halloween | Julia ‘MissChievous

This professional can show you how to do really beautiful glamor make-ups too but what knocked my socks off was her ‘Corpse Bride’ tutorial video:

3. Halloween Makeup Tutorial 1: The Exorcist | Angie ‘goldiestarling

This artist’s work took my breath away on first view. Angie’s ‘Exorcist’ make-up tutorial is fascinating and brilliant.

I could get lost in each of these make-up marvels YouTube channels. There are treasures in each of these channels, websites and blogs. If you love make-up you will be fascinated.

4. Vampires Werewolves or Both? Which will you choose? | Jenn ‘JennisseMakeup

I looked at a lot of Jenn’s work which is fabulous, but was most fascinated by this creation of a Vampire Werewolf.

5. Halloween Classic ….. Skull/Skeleton Makeup Tutorial | Siobhan McDonnell ‘LetzMakeup

This make-up artist is from Ireland and I think she has a uniquely gifted way of looking at Halloween ghouls. What captured my fancy is ‘Skeleton’.

6. Pinhead Halloween Makeup Tutorial | Elizabeth ‘UnlimitedElizabeth

I am totally fascinated by Elizabeth’s ‘Pinhead’ make-up tutorial video. You might be able to even find rubber pins, at least use lightweight aluminum nails.

7. She Devil Halloween Makeup Tutorial | Risa ‘MakeupByRisa

Give this make-up pro’s channel some time. You will be entertained and learn a lot about make-up. I really enjoyed her ‘She Devil’ make-up tutorial.

8. Victorian Gothic Circus Makeup Tutorial | Ashley ‘HollywoodNoirMakeup

I am fond of all things clown and Ashley has a refreshing twist on the twisted clown. So my favorite is ‘Gothic Circus’ make-up tutorial video.

9. Beetlejuice | Jessica Harlow ‘MissJessicaHarlow

You can always tell a true artist by the way they creatively adopt materials. Check out Jessica’s glamor make-up tutorials, but treat yourself this Halloween by viewing the ‘Beetlejuice’ make-up tutorial video.

10. Cenobite Series (Hellraiser) Speedtutorial | Patty ‘CrazyHappy08

Truly “Hell-Raising’ this make-up video tutorial will amaze and fascinate you if you are thinking on going horrific this Halloween.
