It's the most wonderful time of the year—for die-hard fans of Halloween, at least. Since we have the utmost respect for those who dedicate days (or even weeks) of prep into super-realistic costumes and makeup, we've gathered 10 tutorials for some of the finest and freakiest beauty looks for the holiday. Hopefully, this will inspire you to put that extra umph into your outfit this All Hallow's Eve instead of waiting until the last minute like you did last year, when you ended up dressing as a sexy mouse. (Quick warning before you click through, though: Some of these are actually terrifying, so in case your Halloween plans fall through, you can use this roundup as a scary movie marathon. You're welcome.)
