It takes a certain level of skill, patience and creativity to achieve these Halloween looks. From a not-so-classic cat to an ice cream sundae personified, get inspired by the best Halloween makeup on Instagram this year. Reminder: if this isn’t your skill set, you always have the option to head to your nearest makeup counter, like M.A.C Cosmetics, for some professional assistance.
