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.
