Halloween is right around the corner, and just as there are usually Halloween invites aplenty, there's also a hell of a lot of options when it comes to what you dress up as. In recent years, actual costumes have sort of faded away, and in their place, clever makeup and beauty looks have emerged. This year, makeup may be more important than ever, with modern Zoom virtual parties predicted to take the place of in-person affairs due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. I’ve picked out the best YouTube accounts to follow for Halloween makeup tutorials, as the streaming service is full of options aplenty, all with easy step-by-step instructions for your viewing pleasure.

YouTube is of course saturated with options, so knowing where to look can be a little tricky. However there are a handful of makeup artists and YouTubers who always have something to offer every year. What's more, they offer varying levels of characterisation, from minimal makeup to full on special effects get up. I've taken this in mind to select some of the very best accounts to follow. Most have already released their 2020 options, while others will surely soon. And if you don't like this year's videos? They have a back log of brilliantly creepy looks to choose from.

Jamie Genevieve

Scottish blogger Jamie always has something to offer every year. Last year, she absolutely nailed 'Mrs Pennywise':an imagined female version of Stephen King's creepy Pennywise clown from It. Not only is this look creepy and kind of glam at the same time, it is also seriously doable, and doesn't require a huge trunkful of makeup and special effect products. Jamie used makeup she already had in her kit, which mostly can be supplemented for other products you may already own. You may just have to pick up a wig! Her Jessica Rabbit video is also a must-watch.

Nikkie Tutorials

Nikkie Tutorials is a total makeup whiz, and her skills extend to one of the most anticipated occasions of the year: Halloween! 2018’s look was a clever makeup mask, which is both eerie and pretty. 2019 saw Nikkie undergoing a ‘Bride From Hell’ transformation, which was equally as creepy! She's yet to post a 2020 offering, but considering she posted in 2018 and 2019 on the 19th, it's likely we can anticipate it soon. For this reason, it's worth subscribing to her to stay alert!

Keyana Talented

Keyana’s channel is full of great makeup tips and tricks year-round, and her Halloween video for 2020 is a great October addition. This 3D spider look is doable and not too complicated, and looks extra cool with a bright green wig, just like Keyana rocked for her tutorial.

Victoria Lyn

Victoria has an amazing range of fancy dress makeup looks, with this year’s most recent being Little Red Riding Hood. Others in the past have been Frenchie from Grease, Jack Sparrow, the Mad Hatter, the Joker, and Maleficent. In short, her Halloween playlist is the place to be this time of year.
