18 Perfect DIY Snapchat Filter Makeup And Costume Tutorials For Halloween

One of the most popular costume choices for Halloween 2016 is definitely a Snapchat filter. It’s not hard to see why. Filters – with their power of giving us poreless skin and pretty makeup without us having to do anything – are the best thing about Snapchat. Using the dog filter for the 1000th time in a row and playing around with face swaps will basically never get old (I mean, it will. One day!). They also conveniently make for some really great DIY Halloween costumes. And since most of the costume is centered on makeup, it’s cheaper because you can wear items you already have in your closet. Genius!

Sure, the most popular Snapchat filters make cute costumes, like the puppy, the flower crown, and the universally adored golden butterfly filter, but the less popular options also work, and are a bit more creative and unique. These make perfect last minute costumes, or they’re great to use when you want to be dressed up but don’t want to go over the top. Check out these DIY Snapchat filter makeup and costume tutorials. Obviously make sure you get a Snapchat of yourself as a filter, too.

1. The deer filter is cute and easy, and this makeup looks so much like the filter that I thought it WAS the filter at first. Add some brown clothing and you’re good to go.
