How to do skull makeup for Halloween: it’s classic, terrifying, and a little bit cute

If you’re someone who doesn’t like to spend much on a costume but still wants to give Halloween 110%, get ready to send us some MAJOR heart eyes, because we scoured ~the net~ for the best and most creative skull makeup looks for Halloween.
