Create Salvador Dali's "Mae West Room" makeup look for Halloween

Salvador Dali was a crazy old man, and we mean that in the most respectful way possible. He was, of course, the artist who painted the back of his wife's head exploding like a nuclear mushroom bomb.

Whether you're an art nerd or simply a lazy butt in need of a cool last minute costume, check out this video to learn how to dress up like a work of art.
