Halloween is the one day of the year where it's socially acceptable to dress up as whatever you want, but who says that the fun has to stop there? Although ghostly face paint might get you some funny looks the rest of the year, there are Halloween makeup tutorials that can serve you way beyond Oct 31. With gorgeous eye colors and bold lipstick, you can easily turn your average beauty look into an extraordinary one with these tips and tricks.
I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't slightly obsessed with Halloween makeup tutorials. It seems like there's a look for every type of costume out there, so why not use what you learn from studying up on a daily basis? From glam witch lips to funky eyeliner, some tutorials are just too good to ignore after All Hallows Eve is over.
The best part about these beauty how-tos is that you probably already have everything you need in your makeup bag. Instead of wearing a classic red lip, try a vampire-esque plum hue instead, or take your smokey eye to the max with a '20s-inspired flapper look. Everyone has those days where they're feeling a little over-the-top, so why not use your makeup to express yourself? After all, that's what it's here for!
Check out these 11 Halloween tutorials that you can take from Oct 31st straight through November — and beyond.

How fierce is this eye makeup?! You might want to skip the nose, but you could definitely still rock that eye look.
