HALLOWEEN to makeup artists is much like what the Superbowl is to Beyoncé. It's the ultimate time to shine. There's no phoning it in. You go out there guns blazing, showing off all your talent with as many special effects as you can muster, to the sounds of undulating applause and adoration.
Blame Instagram, but it seems makeup artists have seriously upped the ante, with both fledgling and professional MUAs showcasing a Hollywood production level of skill (see our spooky unicorn Halloween tutorial with youtuber 'Moth Queen' for example). But what about the rest of us? Is a white sheet with two eye-holes cut-out still a viable option? Of course not.
To help you figure out your costume for this weekend, here's 30 beautifully spooky looks from 30 super talented makeup artists to help stir your creative juices.
And remember to share your costumes to the #WhatIWoreMCR style-wall.
