So I'm sure it hasn't escaped your notice, but for just in case it has, Halloween is just around the corner and that only means one thing... Costumes! My favourite part about dressing myself up in some creepy attire has always been adding the finishing touches with my makeup. Luckily, this weekend just gone has seen the Hippy Horror festival hitting my local music scene with a bang (and yes, this is a shameless plug of how successful the event went, most likely because my dad organized it...) so I've managed to get loads of good ideas for how to make my face look scarier than usual this year. I thought I'd share some of my favourite makeup looks of the weekend, for both guys and girls.

So that is just a few of my favourite looks for halloween so far. I'm sure I'll be able to track down some more photos at some point soon, but in the meantime that's all the ideas you're getting!
What are you doing for halloween? What's the most creative creepy make-up look you've seen? Got any cool techniques for how to use liquid latex without having it rip your skin off when you're removing it? My boyfriend nearly cried when I was helping him with his!
Love and snuggles
