Ahhh! You guys! Halloween is on Friday, which means we only have two days to get our costumes figured out. If you’ve already decided on your costume, congratulations, you’re not a procrastinator! I’m all set with mine, although in hindsight, I sort of wish I went with something else. I can use my other idea next year so not all is lost. If you’re still not sure on a costume, you can make something great at the last minute!
Sure, you could go buy some cheapo costume that you’ll only wear once at a party store. OR you could do something unique with a t-shirt or a little black dress. If you’re truly strapped for time, there are plenty of costumes you can make by just using makeup. Don’t believe me? Check out these costume options:
Comic Book Character
I've always loved this makeup idea, and it's the perfect last minute costume. You can just wear all black and either use face paint or eye shadow to apply dots and other comic characteristics. Have fun with it!
So easy and so fierce. You can wear whatever you want and just paint a skeleton on your face. You can use face paint or eyeliner, eye shadow and face powder.
Jack O' Lantern
How great is this? You can make this scary or cute, depending on what you want to do. Use orange face paint and black eyeliner to create whatever Jack O' Lantern face you like.
You can be jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas by wearing all black and painting your face. I don't think this girl even used face paint. It looks like just eyeliner and shadow, but you can fill in your face with white if you want.
Wear a dress and apply eye shadow over a piece of lace to create your own masquerade mask!
This is so easy! Just apply white powder or face paint all over your face. Apply heavy blush, red lipstick, black liner and a line over one or both eyes. Wear stripes! You don't even have to talk.
'60s Mod Makeup
Put on a shift dress and do some easy Twiggy makeup by cutting the crease on your lid with black liner and drawing in some bottom lashes.
Wear black and white and create some zebra stripes on your face. You can do a full face or just a few stripes if you want.
Zombies wear regular clothes so just follow my zombie tutorial to pull this costume off!
This tutorial is inspired by The Vampire Diaries vampire looks, and it's pretty easy to do. You can just wear regular clothes, and you don't even need to buy fangs!
