This Woman's Haunted Face Paintings Will Actually Keep You Up At Night (Photos)

Not too long ago, we showed you a bunch of hilarious Halloween makeup fails.

If there's one thing we can learn from those, it's that turning yourself into an Instagram-worthy zombie tends to be a pretty daunting task.

Unless of course, you happen to be Nikki Shelley.

Shelley is a mother of three from Rugby, England who can do some seriously impressive things with a little face paint and some imagination.

Or in this case, some inspiration from her nightmares.

Recently, this self-taught face painter showcased her horror-movie makeup skills by transforming herself into all sorts of terrifying creatures that range from monsters and aliens to creatures that bring your darkest fears to life.

It's not hard to see Shelley is a master of special effects transformations, and if you're looking for some last-minute Halloween inspo, you can find all of her looks on her impressive (not to mention, scary) Instagram account.

Take a look at the pictures below to see her terrifying Halloween makeup.

Meet Nikki Shelley.
