This Gory Halloween Tutorial is Surprisingly Easy

If you’re more Cady Heron than Regina George when it comes to Halloween costumes, you’ll appreciate the latest makeup tutorial from Australian YouTuber Chloe Morello. In this special effects video titled “Bleeding Eye Socket/Eye Injury”, Morello creates a realistic—and gruesome—look guaranteed to inspire shrieks wherever you go. The best bit? It’s surprisingly easy to recreate at home. Morello uses a combination of regular and specialty makeup to craft a convincing wound including; Maybelline’s Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation ($19), Scotty’s Liquid Latex ($10), and Ben Nye’s Nose & Scar Wax ($8) and Thick Blood ($11). While we love a pretty makeup look for Halloween, this is a great option for anyone wanting to get seriously spooky.
