Need Halloween inspiration? Check out these terrifyingly talented Irish MUAs

By Michelle McGlynn

The leaves have turned, the air is crisp and everything has become pumpkin spiced.

Yes, autumn has well and truly arrived and Halloween is creeping closer.

With spooky season already underway the fear is setting in.

No, we're not talking about poltergeists and hauntings. We're talking about costumes.

The amount of thought and planning that needs to go into your costume is downright frightening.

Scary or cute? Classic or cult fave? Shop-bought or homemade?

Fear not, fellow ghouls, we have plenty of inspiration for you right here from some terrifyingly talented make-up artists.
