15 of the Best Scary-Chic Halloween Makeup Tutorials on YouTube
Along with the promise of candy and scary movies, one of our favorite parts of Halloween is the makeup. Who could resist watching a tutorial (or 15) showing you how to get the spookiest costume on the block? Obviously not us! We’ve compiled a list of some of our absolute favorite creepy Halloween makeup tutorials that we can’t wait to try on October 31.
1. Cheshire Cat: He may star in a Disney flick, but we think this Cheshire Cat makeup is downright spook-tacular. Pair with a blue ensemble, ears and tail to make it the perfect pick for the scariest night of the year. (via LinzMushel)
7. Zombie: A zombie costume doesn’t always require buckets of fake blood to be creepy and effective. We love how the green- and purple-tinged makeup looks in sharp contrast to the rest of her everyday style. (via Alana Dawn)
10. Creepy Clown: We had just started getting over our nightmares from American Horror Story: Freak Show when we saw this creepy clown ensemble. It’s scary but totally on point for a night of terrors. (via Chelsey Stacey)
13. Marie Antoinette: Not for the faint of heart, this is a far cry from the classic sexy Marie Antoinette costume. If you can deal with the gore, this is one seriously impressive tutorial to try. (via Julia Graf)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
