Fear not, procrastinating party people, celebrity makeup artist Kari Bauce has got you covered. Using just a couple of Ben Nye creme colors, a brush or cotton swabs, and a couple of minutes, you can achieve a skeleton makeup look that is equal parts simple and spooky.

The secret to this impressive looking masterpiece is in the mouth. The stitched look, which is accomplished in just a few drawn lines, is way simpler ― and cooler ― than trying to draw teeth.
