This amazing beauty blogger has us planning our Halloween costumes

Ladies, it's never too early to start planning your Halloween costume (even if it is 10 months away…).

With that in mind, we'd like to introduce you to one of the most talented makeup artists we have ever seen! 

Vanessa Davis is a British MUA, who specialises in theatrical and artistic looks, such as skulls and butterflies. 

 Vanessa has gained over 169,000 followers in just over 12 months, which is extremely impressive in our opinion. 

She uses a number of different tools and paints to achieve her breathtaking looks, such as UV paint, glitter and acrylics.


Unicorn / Pegasus Wings Skull I'm jumping on the Instagram Unicorn band wagon and you guessed it- incorporated a skull in there. I just love anything holographic or rainbow. (Pegasus was white, not rainbow and I chose to leave out the horn and some unicorns do have wings you know) What would you name it? Products Used: @wolfefaceartfx Face Painting FX palette, @maccosmetics @maccosmeticsuk Mechanical eyebrow pencil in 'Stud' to do the outline and pressed eyeshadows (depotted, discontinued and unlabelled – sorry guys) in various rainbow colours. @wonderlandmakeup Pigment powders in 'Chaulked', 'Lolite' and lipstick in Pink Squeeze. Hope you had a lovely weekend guys and feeling geared up for the week ahead #amazingmakeupart #skullmakeup #dupemag #skulltress #skullart #artoftheday #mua #muashoutouts #faceart #facepainting #maccosmetics #maccosmeticsuk #bbloger #makeupoftheday #sopormagazine #thehorrorhub #makeuptutorials #FeatureMeDita #mythcosmetics #skulltress #feature__my_stuff #StyleArtists #iphone6 #100daysofmakeupchallenge

Vanessa has not posted any images of a regular, day-to-day makeup, but this Halloween inspo is giving us all the feels.


Third Eye Skull Makeup This was inspired by Dan Hillier's artwork 'Beetle Skull' (Which I will post shortly). It was an exercise in symmetry and illusion! Products used on the three Eyes: @maccosmetics @maccosmeticsuk Paint Sticks in Process Magenta, Rich Purple, Pigments in Neon 60's, Ruby Red, Process Magenta, outlined using Penultimate eyeliner in Black, @wonderlandmakeup Pigment in Chalked. The lashes are from @lashedibiza and @blackmagiclashes For the Skull  I used @maccosmetics @maccosmeticsuk Full Coverage Foundation in White, translucent setting powder and the Chameleon face painting palette from @tiltmakeup Happy Friday folks, hope you have a great weekend! #amazingmakeupart #skulls #skullmakeup #skull #cyclops #eyemakeup #skulltress #maccosmetics #maccosmeticsuk #facepaint #illusion #illusions
