As All Hallows' Eve draws closer, the pressure to find yourself a sufficiently ghoulish, ghastly or gruesome costume grows. But if your idea of dressing up for Halloween is pulling on a passé Scream mask, there are other, more impactful costume ideas that require just as little effort. For instance, channel your inner skeleton (literally) by painting a simple Mexican sugar skull on your face and complete this ‘Day Of The Dead’ look by covering yourself, head to toe, in black clothes you already own. Simple.

Just grab some white and black face paint, a mirror and some old paintbrushes (equally, raiding your girlfriend’s make-up bag works just as well), and check out the video below. And for more style advice and tips, subscribe to our YouTube channel here
