Bored with wearing that old Scream mask or sexy nurse outfit on Halloween? We've combed through the darkest alcoves of the beauty web to find you these Halloween make-up gems.

TIM BURTON'S CORPSE BRIDE

Ladies and gentlemen, the fabulous recreation of Tim Burton's 2005 Corpse Bride, as originally played by Helena Bonham Carter. Alternatively, you could just dress up as the perpetually (and occasionally even stylishly) frightful HBC.

ZOMBIE

If you must recreate a face-eating, bath-salt-chewing, Miami-police-scaring edition to society, at least emulate the extremely clever use of Kleenex in this video.

ZIPPED FACE

These are utterly horrifying (and take a frightful amount of time, too). Perfect for scaring trick-or-treaters and totally creep-proof. No one will hit on you, should you choose to replicate.

LICHTENSTEIN'S POP ART

This is by far the most striking implementation of the pop-art comic using makeup tools and facepaint.

BETTY BOOP

In a similar vein, Kandee Johnson (her real name) has created this Betty Boop tutorial. It has that similarly arresting retro aesthetic about it, but will probably hold up better during Halloween hijinks than the pop-art look.

MODERN ART CLASSICS

Art-inspired make-up is where it's at this year, with Van Gough's celebrated self portrait and Dali's iconic Il volto di Mae West receiving admittedly low-brow but ever-dazzling face appropriations.

 

THE REAL LIFE ANIME

If all else fails, you can go as the real life anime, and horrify children and adults everywhere. From the doe-eyed one herself, this is how you do it.
