This make-up artist has a serious talent for creating terrifying yet mesmerizingly beautiful looks.

We’ve read the books and seen the movies: we all know just how terrifying a clown can be. Create the look yourself, if you dare.

@reddslea


If zombies are your thing, then watch how this make-up artist creates the dead-man-walking look to perfection.

@cindychendesigns

@lustredust
