Phenomenal make-up artist Cameron Quinn from Lynn has shared an array of Halloween looks on social media.

With some designs taking hours to complete, the creative beauty expert showcased his unique designs on TikTok.

In years past Mr Quinn has done “30 days of Halloween” where he did a different look for each day, but this year he has shown a different side to the creative process by producing video content.

Some notable looks include an Asian china inspired half face, a ‘Chucky’ style doll face and a colourful demon.

Mr Quinn said: “Halloween means so much to me because it takes me back to where it all started with my love for make-up.

“When I was a teenager my sister to used to work in a nightclub in Lynn and every Halloween she would dress up to go to work and do her make-up as a really spooky character.

“She was really good at special effects so I would always beg her to show me how to do it.

“She would use liquid latex with pieces of toilet paper and layer it on her face to create ‘skin’ and then paint foundation over it.

“It would then be cut and filled with fake blood to create realistic looking scars- I was mesmerised.”

Mr Quinn taught himself to re-create the spooky looks through YouTube to reach the level he is at now.

He said: “With everything back open my career has been non-stop! Now it’s time to get into that Halloween spirit and celebrate with the best way I know how- make-up!

“It’s my favourite time of the year where I can get creative with the special effects and have no boundaries.
