These floating head makeup tutorials are FREAKISHLY awesome
Normally when we imagine Halloween makeup tutorials we imagine beauty vloggers instructing us on how to apply makeup like Wednesday Addams or how to blend the perfect sexy blood into our cat ears. However, the latest Instagram trend of floating head makeup tutorials takes classic Halloween makeup into a haunted house and effortlessly beheads it before becoming the new queen of cosmetic terror.
The concept of a makeup artist being able to create the illusion of disembodiment through floating head makeup tutorials sounds like something straight out of a campfire story, but several incredibly talented Instagram beauty bloggers have been trying out the trend and their results are pure nightmare fuel.
The makeup artist Victoria Whitlow made her head look like it was freshly sliced off her neck with long drips of blood flowing.

Sabrina Warnick managed to create a gorgeous (but terrifying) skin rim effect around the bottom of her neck.
F L O A T I N G H E A D I've seen this cool illusion design before and always thought it was cool so I thought I'd recreate!This is so cool, and REALLY easy.

This floating head makeup looks like a headshot if LA was fully swarmed with zombies.
Another #halloweenmakeup look! ❤️❤️ Completely OBSESSED with these "headless" looks if y'all can't tell... After doing my "floating head" a few weeks ago, I assume this is similar to what it would look like if your head REALLY came off! Inspired 100% by @monomolove ! This was by far the EASIEST makeup I have EVER done.. No joke 5 minutes TOPS! Anyone can do this, but getting a white background to look good... Took me 30 minutes! I don't have a clue HOW these people do it and if anyone has any tips please let me know...I had to do some serious editing to get this to look right! If you decide to try this at home just know a silk white sheet will NOT do the trick!! LOL! (P.S a ton of you are tagging me in some crazy cool stuff that I don't have the supplies for at home so just a side note I HAVE ordered some liquid latex, scar wax, and 3rd degree and it's supposed to arrive at the Wright residence tomorrow! So I hope to try some crazy new things and come totally out of my comfort zone before the month is over! And who's to say I will even stop after October ends! Thanks so much to everyone giving me ideas!)

These makeup looks prove you don’t have to keep your head on in order to be successful at what you do.
