Halloween is like our Christmas Day. We’re not gonna lie, it’s probably more exciting for us than Christmas now we’re actual grown-ups because, well Halloween of course!

We just love the fun of dressing up, doing outrageous make-up and wearing our creepiest contact lenses to shock and scare all our friends. You know that song, wish it could be Christmas every day? Well we wish it could be Halloween every day.

But for these amazing make up artists who are SLAYING Instagram right now, it basically is! They spend their careers/or even just weekends and evenings creating awesome, gruesome and incredible special FX make up looks that many of us could only dream of recreating.

To be honest, all of our Top 20 Halloween Make Up Instagrammers post very detailed tutorials on how to do their looks yourself so we thought we’d compile our favorites here and give you guys a little inspiration for costume ideas you can recreate for Halloween 2017.

And if you do a complete Fail? Well tag us! We want to see your #CrazyNailedIt attempts. The best will be featured on our blog in November this year.

 

The Glam and The Gore

Mykie, aka The Glam and The Gore is like the fairy godmother of Halloween make up. Anything she sets her magic wand (ahem, make up brush) to she absolutely nails. Her 1.6m Instagram followers are testament to the outstanding content she produces not just on the gram but also on her Youtube channel. We are always entranced by her amazing style and talent.

 

Here are our favorite looks by Mykie:

Make Up Mouse

 

Possibly the cutest name for a make up artist ever and totally suited to Heather Moorhouse, aka Make-up Mouse. Heather’s creativity with make up special fx is second to none and it’s no wonder she has won the NYX Face Award. We just love how she creates amazing effects with her eyes and eye lashes. Here are our fave Halloween looks by her:

Daniel’s 31 days of Halloween in 2016 were absolutely groundbreaking displays of MUA talent. He is definitely one to watch for this year and his star is most certainly rising! We featured Daniel quite a lot last year and are so excited that he’s such a fan of using our Halloween contacts!

Oh how we fell in love with Dehsonae’s Unicorn IG feed! This hot momma (and her beautiful little girl Khayah) create visually stunning make up looks using lots of color, creativity and glitter!

We love this unicorn as well as pretty much everything else her magic make up brush touches. #HalloweenInspo
