With Halloween looming, have you spent ages figuring out your costume? Let’s be honest: you’re scrambling to put together something last minute and not be a sexy cat or “God”, right?
Enter, then, YouTube makeup tutorials. Ten minutes, an urban decay palette and some imagination, and you too could be the Queen of Hearts, the Joker, a melting Barbie – basically be on fleekest.
Yeah, no. Imagine your ideal Halloween look… now please get back to reality.
At first, you feel confident - you totally could pull off a full FX look!
Pro tip: lower expectations.

You could go for something more classic - skull makeup!
Maybe a sugar skull? You wouldn't even have to do your whole face...
Not. A. Chance.
Why not go with the trend? A comic book look shouldn't be too hard.
THIS is why not.
A doll! There is absolutely no way to f*ck up this one, right?
Of course there is.
And oh, the many other pitfalls of makeup tutorials...
