Remember as a child, how much fun Halloween was...just to play with the make-up.
...and then it got grisly. Or gory.
...and then it became elegant and artistic. Display time.
And every year, there are more and other tutorials.
Or this year, seek out a professional make-up artist for a specifically themed Halloween look.

Here's a few styling tips for this season.
Were you excluded from the Cannes guest list?
To create tear-stained cheeks, blend a dark eyeshadow and eye drops into a bowl, mix together, and apply the streaks to your cheeks using a Q-tip. Add vintage bling, a corset and arm yourself with a vintage champagne coup and old pastel telephone receiver.
Beetlejuice ghouls are always chic.

Begin with a taupe semi-circle and layer and smudge with darker shades.
Add a matted wig. Also check out this link for an array of Halloween make-up and props. http://www.spirithalloween.com/wigs-makeup/
