With Halloween mere days away, it’s time to finalize your costume plans. The only problem? You aren’t quite sure what you want to wear. Thank goodness for makeup—that almighty tool that’s capable of transforming your look from plain Jane to plain fabulous in just minutes. If you’re thinking sweet and simple, there are plenty of options for you. But if you’re envisioning something artful that would make Picasso envious, you’re destined to find hundreds of ideas, too. Here are just a few ways to get the Halloween look that you want—only with makeup!
You don’t have to be a five-year-old to appreciate the ethereal looks spotted in Frozen years ago. You can easily make that magical look your own by icing up your lids, lashes, and brows with shimmery white hues. Make it work by running the Tweezerman Folding iLashcomb through your lashes first, setting the stage for a plush white mascara and allows your peepers to stand out. Add a generous dusting of Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in white to your lids and over your eyebrows. The result? Brrr! You look hot for someone so cold.
Yep, we’ve moved from cheetahs to giraffes. And we’re absolutely here for it—it’s a fun, playful look that anyone can pull off using just a few key items. First, bring your eyes to life using copious amounts of black liner. Try a liquid formula so that it remains budge-proof throughout the night—we’re particularly loving the Youngblood Liquid Liner Pen . Then curl, curl, curl! Your lashes need to stand out because, well, you’ll never meet a giraffe without a serious lash game. Clamp down with Tweezerman’s Super Curl Eyelash Curler , and finish with multiple coats of bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara . Get those telltale spots using your choice of bronzer or body makeup. Don’t forget to add a pair of ears!
When else can you really rock bloody lips and dead eyes but Halloween? Make the most of the occasion by vamping up your makeup. Try a deep, rich lip color that saturates your pout with something brazen—think Youngblood Kranberry or Bistro lipstick . Get those dark, dramatic eyes by lining with TIGI Cosmetics Precision Black Eyeliner. Apply some false lashes to really elevate your look, then apply multiple coats of Glo Skin Beauty Lash Lengthening Mascara for extra oomph. Precisely applied pale makeup is the key to a seriously effective zombie look. We’re wild about Dermablend Flawless Creator for its staying power. Finish with strategically applied reddish, dark, and gray color around your eyes, and a few drops of “blood” trailing from your lips down your neck.
