Ah, Halloween: The one time of year where looking like you've just survived a zombie apocalypse or a freak accident is socially acceptable. 'Tis the season for all things spooky, after all, so giving yourself a bloody special effects makeover with gross halloween makeup is the way to do the holiday justice.
It's time to break out all of the liquid latex, scar wax, and cheap fake blood you can secure, because scaring the bajeebers out of anyone who crosses your path is going to take some creepy creativity. From a rotting face to a bizarre facial accident with a pencil, there are no limits to how gross your SFX makeup can get. It doesn't matter if you plan a gory costume in advance or go the last minute Halloween makeup route; There's just no going wrong with a blood spattered, skin tattered makeover on Hallow's Eve. Often DIYable with household materials like cotton, glue stick, and food coloring, you don't even have to break the bank with costly effects makeup.
