Think Halloween make-up was limited to black lipstick, a drizzle of fake blood and a dusting of talcum powder for a ghostly sheen? Think again.

Youtube's beauty bloggers have answered the call for creatively creepy make-up ideas with hundreds of mind-bowling make-up tutorials for Halloween, from costume classic like Black Swan and Edward Scissorhands, to unsettlingly lifelike portrayals of cats and skeletons. Watch and follow for your own ghoulish get-up, or just sit back and be amazed by their eerie efforts.

1. Van Gogh

This make-up version of Van Gogh's Starry Night by goldiestarling would be tricky to recreate, but looks absolutely amazing.

2. Pop Art/Comic Books

Another awesome art-inspired look (makes a change from bats and witches), Emma Pickles presents an homage to comic books and the art of Lichtenstein.

3. Black Swan

Natalie Portman's Black Swan is a classic, not-too-tricky costume choice for Halloween, save the intricate eye make-up. CarrosBeauty shows how to get it right.

4. Corpse bride:

dope2111 creates an unsettling but brilliant homage to Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. Warning: This may scare children on public transport!

5. Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland

Another Tim Burton-inspired look, kandeejohnson's make-up would do Helena Bonham-Carter proud.

6. Born This Way Skeleton Face

Recreate the skeleton face as seen on Lady gaga and Rick Genest in the Born This Way video, with EffieStardust's tutorial.

7. Cat Mask

A cat is a Halloween classic - but this tutorial from BeautifulYouTV is far more impressive than hastily drawn-on whiskers.

8. Avatar

you'll need a lot of blue face paint to create this Neyteri in Avatar look.

9. Unzipped

There's a huge trend for doing unzipped faces on Youtube (yep, we had no idea either), but this unzipped eye video from petrilude is our favourite.

10. Pinhead from the movie Hellraiser

Even if you haven't seen the film, this bald, spiked look is still a terrifying option for Halloween. Apparently the 'spikes' will just collapse and fall off if you fall over (that's a relief!)
