Top 15 Ghoulish Hair and Makeup Looks!

Instagram is a haven of inspiration. Like most of us I scroll endlessly through the social platform looking for new ideas and Inspo. October is my favourite month as the inspiration for Hair and Makeup looks triples and it all starts to look abit Ghoulish, but oh so wonderfully creative. The skill and time taken upon creating the following looks must have taken hours. So a big shoutout to the creators and artists!
