Some people really get into Halloween and plan their costume out months in advance. Others take a more last-minute approach, frantically Googling “easy Halloween costumes” two hours before they’re due to meet up with friends. Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell found herself squarely in the latter camp. Luckily, because it’s 2017, she knew exactly where to turn to find a quick, easy costume idea: YouTube makeup tutorials.
Given that it’s October, YouTube’s has been flooded with Halloween-themed makeup videos—and Mitchell is a huge fan of makeup, so this was pretty much a match made in heaven. She chronicled the saga of transforming herself into an undead bride on her Instagram story, and it’s so relatable.
“I don’t know how I’m doing this but I’m doing it,” Mitchell wrote over an image of her with pale skin and a black eye. “Thank you @youtube for all the tutorials lol.” Her story also included an image of the actress holding a bunch of black roses and showing off her finished look, which featured a forehead wound and some eerie blue contacts.
Mitchell was joined by her friend Cait Bailey, who dressed up as the undead groom to Mitchell’s bride. “Bride and groom aka last minute costumes,” Mitchell captioned the picture of the duo on Instagram. In it you can see Cait matched Mitchell’s forehead wound, and then added a chest wound next to her bowtie, which she layered over a sparkly chocker.
Mitchell isn’t the only celebrity who’s skilled with a makeup brush: Ariana Grande, Maisie Williams, and Jenna Dewan Tatum are among the famous faces who have been known to take the reins when it comes to their beauty looks.
They may not post their own makeup tutorials on YouTube, but you can still pick up plenty of the tips and tricks they’ve learned from working with professional makeup artists over the years. Bonus: those will stay relevant long after Halloween, too. Now that’s what we call a treat.
