That’s right, Halloween is just around the corner and we know what it’s like – you should be excited but you’ve been so wrapped up and busy getting back into uni life that suddenly it’s a day before the big All Hallows Eve, all the good outfits are sold out, it’s too late to mail order and you’re stuck with a pair of fangs, some eyeliner and a ripped up sheet.
But fear not! Thanks to the wonders of Instagram, we have spotted some wonderful creativity coming out of our BA (Hons) Hair, Make-Up and Prosthetics for Performance course, just in time for Friday. We were so impressed with their ideas that we have enlisted their help to get us in the party mood and give us some much needed tips on using make-up to terrify and amaze our friends and fellow party-goers.

What with the clocks going back and the season change, we’re all feeling pretty wretched. With @muamayaman’s look you really can be pretty and wretched – a half and half skeleton face with incredible detail. The artist told us:
“This one was a workshop creating a skull influenced by Billyb’s makeup in Lady Gaga’s music video “Born this way”. I used my aqua pallet and ‘carbon’ M•A•C eye shadow finishing off with Collection 2000′s liquid eyeliner to add the cracked detailing.”
