What happens when you combine black-out contacts, special-effects makeup, and fake blood? Enough scary Halloween makeup looks to make me never want to go on Instagram again — at least during the month of October. Seriously, makeup artists are going all out this year.

Each look that pops up on my feed lately is more frightening than the next. Eyes are being squished out sockets, optical illusions are boggling my brain, and way too many insects and arachnids are involved — all of which are giving me nightmares.

Knowing some people live for this stuff, I sacrificed my scaredy-cat soul to find some of the creepiest Halloween makeup looks on Instagram. And let's be real: They make the bloody squiggle brows look tame.

Let's start off with a look that doesn't involve any blood. Instead, this creepy cat is more of a psychological thriller. I'm not sure what's scarier: the total look or figuring out where the makeup artist's eyes, nose, and mouth are located.

My childhood has been burnt to a crisp just looking at this. I'll never look at the Disney character the same after seeing this.

If you didn't already have a fear of spiders, let this makeup remind you that those things exist in most horrifying yet beautiful way.
