Halloween is only weeks away…

It’s time to carve those pumpkins and bring out the candy! There’s no need to splurge at  the mall when you can create a costume with accessories you might already own and a makeup look to match. Keep reading for 5 great costume ideas…

1. Queen of hearts

You will need: a red dress with black leggings and red pumps or a red top and a black skirt or jeans with red pumps/flats, red heart-shaped jewelry, red lipstick, black eyeliner, white face powder, and of course, a crown!

How to do the makeup:

1. Start with a clean moisturized face and apply white face makeup with a sponge all over your face, neck (and shoulders/chest if wearing a strapless top) and blend .  2. Put on lip balm and apply concealer on lips.  3. Apply a peach/ copper blush on cheekbones.  4. Apply setting powder over face and neck.  5. With black liquid Eyeliner draw a thin line with a winged end on the upper lash, apply false lashes if you’d like, and finish with two coats of black mascara over lashes.   6. Using a lip brush apply red lip color on lips. Follow the natural peak of your lips to draw a red heart like in the picture.

2. Vampire

This classic costume is pretty simple. Dress in black and apply white face makeup on face and any other skin that’s showing. Try icy blue or red contacts for the night, and fangs. Apply cherry red lipstick and add some blood to finish your look.

Fake blood recipe:
  • light corn syrup/ or clear cough syrup
  • Red, blue, and yellow food coloring
Mix about 16 oz of corn/ cough syrup and 1 tbsp of red food coloring in a bowl.  Add a drop of blue and a drop of yellow food coloring for a darker shade of blood. Smear it on your neck or wherever you’d like.Click the link for a video tutorial.

3. Greek goddess

If you own a gold dress or top wear it, or you can also try a white dress/top with gold jewelry.

4. Cowgirl

Do your hair in pigtails, bring out a cute cowboy hat, pair it with shorts/skinny jeans and a cute checkered top, wear some cowgirl bootsand you got yourself a costume!

5. Angel or devil?!

Hard decision, both just as easy!
For the angel costume you will need a white outfit with white pumps/sandals, angel Wings , and a halo. Check out the video for heavenly makeup and you’re good to go!

Homer needs: a white short sleeved polo, blue jeans ,a bald head ( you can purchase a bald-wig cap) and you could carry around a donut or beer mug for added effect! Marge Simpson

Zombies

You’re dressing up as the undead which leaves you with many options. You could be zombie prom king and queen, zombie cheerleaders, or even wear your regular clothes. The thing that makes the zombie outfit complete is the makeup. You can purchase a Halloween make up kit at various drugstores or Halloween specialty stores and use the colors on your face and skin. Get some fake blood to splash on your clothes and body as well.

Don’t forget the easiest costume ever

Purchase some kind of animal ears (kitty, tiger, rabbit..) match your makeup accordingly, check your wardrobe for something to wear ( you can actually get away with wearing your regular clothes) and you’re done! Just a few cheap and simple ideas, I’d love to hear any do it yourself costumes you have done or plan on using! Happy Halloween!
