Halloween is fast approaching, dear readers. While many of you probably have your spot-on Beast Jesus and Psy get-ups ready to go, we bet there are some
really busy procrastinating people out there who have yet to prepare their ensembles.
Lucky for you, we've scoured the Internet for some last minute suggestions, many of which don't even require much of a costume -- just a makeup brush, a rainbow of cosmetics, and a flair for elaborate face painting. We're indebted to our friends at Flavorwire, who really know how to give excellent Halloween tips.
Scroll through the slideshow below and let us know what you think of the visual and performing arts-inspired makeup tutorials in the comments section. (We will give a virtual high-five to anyone who can top the enthusiastic Vincent van Gogh design.)
