YouTube is an absolute treasure trove of makeup and hair tutorials. You can find pretty much any DIY look you need. Kim Kardashian eyelashes? Easy! Hunger Games Katniss braids? Mere child’s play. What really separates the boys from the men are the elaborate tutorials–the ones that really highlight unbelievable transformations.
With Halloween right around the corner, there’s no better time for trolling YouTube for inspiration. And oh my, did we hit a gold mine. From a Vincent Van Gogh self-portrait (so Rodarte spring 2012!) to the creepiest baby doll ever, click through to find some truly impressive (and often horrifying) Halloween makeup tutorials.
