Going wild for Halloween? Whether you have your costume already picked out or you’re looking for some inspiration, be sure to check out YouTube for some amazing and innovative makeup ideas for Halloween. Many users make it easy to understand the techniques used to create a gory face or perfect cat nose with makeup you already own.

Be sure to try the look prior to Halloween to get a handle on the techniques used and to work out any kinks or purchase any additional products if needed. My favorite thing about going all out with makeup for Halloween is it allows you skimp on the actual costume, which is helpful in this economy. Who wants to spend $50 on a costume when they can throw on all black or snag something at a thrift store and be just as scary?! Here are some of my favorite videos, and if you have any requests, be sure to leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to track down a video that works for you.
