This year I'm especially focused on Halloween makeup looks as opposed to getting a store bought costume. As a self proclaimed DIY addict there's nothing better that putting time and effort into your project and having it turn out amazingly. All you'll need for most of these looks is some face paint, a brush, and these tutorials. If  you're looking for a few makeup ideas to scare everyone around you then continue reading this post.
