San Francisco-based makeup artist Kate Nash created a scary Halloween makeup tutorial for Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

To achieve the "undead" look, coat your face in very light blue face paint. Then, in a darker blue hue, paint two circles around your eyes. Apply solid black eyeliner and, using an eyelash adhesive, glue two V-shaped clusters of individual fake lashes to each eye. To create the stitch affect, use a liquid blue liner to draw a diagonal line from your hairline to cheekbone, and then again on the side of your mouth and neck. Cross the lines with an X-shape to finish.

To complete the iconic look, apply a dark shade of red lipstick and don a colorful patchwork dress.
