5 *Even Freakier* Halloween Makeup Tutorials

Last year we brought you these reality-defying, head-bending Halloween makeup ideas. This year, you asked us for more – and you asked for the scoop: just how do they create those fantastic effects, anyway?

Your wish is our command, HA fans: here are five even freakier Halloween makeup ideas, plus vids to creep you through every step. Enjoy!

NOTE: Some tutorials contain add-ons like latex prosthetics or glue. If you’re allergic to any of these items, please DO NOT attempt.

1. It’s a Scream

The “open mouth” idea isn’t new, but this tutorial amps things up a notch. Wow! We know we’re screaming. (And we kinda can’t stop.)

2. Horror Hands

We admit it – our minds are blown. Try these FXs to trick out your trick-or-treaters this year.

3. That’s Out There. Way, Way Out There

“Pale Man” wins our vote for most understated costume name of the year. WhatEVER this thing is, it’s scaring our pants right off (and we love it).

4. You Forgot Something

And by that we mean: half your face. This inhuman take on the “pulled-off face” is out of this world.

5. Oh. Eye Get It

Honestly, we’ve been wondering for years how this is done. The idea seems simple but it’s true art. (No, really!) Try these eyes on for size.

These 7 Freaky Makeup Ideas Will Blow Your Mind

 

Halloween fads come and go, but one we’ve been seeing for the past three years or so has been a serious amping up of unique (and freaky!) makeup. Halloween enthusiasts seek out makeup looks that keep pushing the envelope. And we love it!

Here are the most amazing, mind-boggling and, yes, freakiest trends we dug up just for you. (Click on each image for its source.) Enjoy!

Giant Mouth

Yes, we did just “make” a teensy bit in our pants, thankyouverymuch. Giant mouths (this one goes down to her collarbone!) are, pardon the pun, huge again this year. Youtube has dozens of tutorials, so search for your favorite look.

Creepy Dolls

sophee.co.uk

Let’s face it: dolls are ALWAYS creepy. Make yourself up to be a doll and you’ll be creepier yet. Top on the creeper list? Ventriloquist dummy dolls (when have those ever NOT been scary?). BONUS FEAR POINTS: at the party, carry  a horrifying baby doll, and talk to it…frequently.

“Unzipped” Flesh

denisechavez.com

Zip it! Oh, sorry, that’s right, you can’t. “Unzipped” flesh, especially on the face, delivers double-takes, so if you’re going for max impact (and attention), zip away! (Hint: short on time? Buy “zipper” transfers.)

Doubled Features

dailymail.co.uk

Hey there, four eyes. Okay, so that wasn’t nice…but it WAS accurate. This is one seriously trippy look and when done well, will keep you from trusting your OWN eyes. It’s worthy of note, though, that the above look was created by an actual artist (on herself), so if you’re not already uber-talented, YMMV.

Giant Eyes

Oversize eyes are another cool look and follow the “severely oversized appendage” trend. You’ll only deliver the full effect when your eyes are closed, but trust me, the reactions will be worth it. (Shown here: the Corpse Bride.)

Mouth-Inside-an-Eye

sadtohappyproject.com

Eye-yi-yi! Like the double-eyes makeup above it, this one takes serious artistic talent, so invest in the help of someone who has a way with a makeup brush and a good (wait for it) eye for depth, dimension and realism.

Stitched Mouth

VERY popular this Halloween is a stitched mouth, such as this look, entitled “Silenced.” Click the image for the vid that describes the process. So creepy…and so cool!
