Horror Makeup That’s Creepy, Cool, and Completely Creative

Horror makeup takes some serious skills. You need to have a solid creative streak to come up with something dark and twisted and be able to execute both the painted makeup and practical effects. I mean, I can barely do my own eyeliner.

But we’re not just looking at practical special effects makeup here (sorry Tom Savini – I love you, but this isn’t your list).

I’ve taken the opportunity to track down some of the coolest horror makeup effects on Instagram. These artists are totally talented; they’ve got a unique craft and they’re lovingly sharing it with the world. There are plenty of makeup artists and practical effects on Instagram, but these folks use a combination of those skills to take it to the next level.

Check it out.
