5 beauty products you need for the perfect Halloween look

If you are not a fan of dressing up for Halloween, but still want to do something to celebrate; go the DIY route and use your creativity with makeup. Below are five beauty products you will need to create spooky, glamorous, gory, and enchanting makeup looks, perfect for Halloween 🎃

  • Eyeshadow palette


      An eyeshadow palette will come in handy to create many looks, be sure to choose one with many colors. It also helps to know what look you want to create before purchasing a palette to ensure you have all the colors needed.

      • False lashes


        Add some drama to your look with long and thick lashes. They are available in all shapes, lengths, colors and sone even have glitter or fun fabrics attached.

        • Liquid liner


          Eyeliner will come in handy for drawing precise lines on your face to create your Halloween look. Choose a liquid one, with a thin tip to ensure you are able to draw delicate lines when needed.

          • Lipstick


            Compliment your Halloween look with a fun lipstick shade! There’s a variety of colors available from a black lip (good for a witch or skull), to blues ranging from teal to navy (mermaid look anyone?!)

            • Temporary haircolor


            If you have been wanting to try a bright color in your hair, but have been scared to try; Halloween is the perfect excuse to do it! A temporary haircolor spray is convenient and usually washes out after a few shampoos. If you have bleached or light hair, you can use temporary color like Manic Panic for color that will last a bit longer. Or you can also just purchase glitter spray to add some sparkle to your look.

            These five beauty items are a must to create whatever Halloween look you choose. If you need some Halloween makeup inspiration, check out my previous post with creepy makeup looks 👻

            Let your inner wonder woman out: 5 best DIY superhero costumes for women

            Halloween is the one time a year you can go all out and transform yourself into your favorite superhero. I am sure you’ve seen the superhero costumes at stores, but if you’d rather save some cash check out a few ideas below.

            1. Wonder woman- who wouldn’t want to be wonder woman for a day! Be warned,  this is probably most girls choice when it comes to choosing a superhero costume.

            All you really need to complete your look is star spangled leggings/shorts/ or a skirt, a red top and the right accessories. The outfit below screams “Wonder Woman” and you might already own similar pieces. Finish off the look with a winged eyeliner look and some cherry red lips and you are good to go.

             

            2. Black widow- besides kicking ass, this girl wears a flattering all black ensemble.  Easy and slimming look in one 🙂

            Black Widow’s costume is pretty easy to recreate, think lots of black and lots of leather. I know the rose and gun sweater isn’t really Black widow-like, but she does carry around a gun! Honestly, I  just thought the sweater was very cute when I found it online, and it’s a perfect look in case you’d rather wear the weapon instead of carry a prop gun around. Her makeup is pretty minimal, but you can check out the tutorial below inspired by Black Widow’s look.

             

             

            3. Xena- some might say she’s not a superhero,  but Xena fights the evil guys and is always looking out for those who need saving. Plus, you get to carry around that cool circle weapon, or Chakram to be more specific.

            Click here for a super easy tutorial on creating a Chakram with cardboard and some spray paint.

             

            You can complete the look by copying one of Xena’s hairstyles,the breaided headband. Check out this super simple tutorial to achieve the hairstyle.

            4. Iron woman- yes, they have costumes ready to go at stores, but you can easily achieve a Ms. Stark look with clothing to match. 

            You can achieve a cooler Iron Woman look with the right makeup, so check out a couple tutorials below. The first one has a gorgeous eyeshadow tutorial, and the second one is if you are up for a challenge on achieving a very realistic costume.


             

            5. The punisher- this costume is fun and easy. It can also be pretty laid back. All you need is a toy gun to complete the look. 

            Or, you can browse through these tutorials to create your own fake gun to use as a prop.

             

            Start shopping and looking through your closet now to create the best costume. Piecing costumes together, rather than buying a full costume at a store is a huge money saver. And sometimes make you look much more original. Have a safe and happy Halloween, and buy yourself something nice with all that money saved on your costume 😉

            Do-it-yourself Halloween costume ideas

            Not everyone wants to spend $50+ on a costume that will most likely only be worn once this Halloween. Making your own costume, whether it be by matching pieces and accessories together or sewing an actual outfit, can save you a lot of money. It will also allow you to wear stuff you purchased as a costume not just on Halloween.

            Catwoman costume

             


            Sailor Moon costume

             

            Complete your Sailor Moon costume with makeup to open up your eyes and give that anime doll look. Check out the video below it’s a great tutorial for a Sailor Moon look. You can buy the wig like in the tutorial, or simply put your hair up in pigtails and find accessories to match Sailor Moons.

            Katy Perry– in her “California girls” look
            This costume is pretty simple to DIY. Check out the outfit I put together below to get an idea of how to put the look together. Rather than doing the cupcake bra, you can wear a cami and wear cupcake themed accessories. Your biggest purchase will most likely be a blue wig, or if you don’t mind dying your hair, you can also do a temporary hair dye or try doing a kool-aid hair dye! Check out this tutorial to temporarily dye your hair with Kool-aid over at Haircolorcode. If you want to do the real look Katy Perry showed off in her “California girls” video, check out this post for a very creative and detailed tutorial on making your own cupcake bra. Sprinkles and candied nipples included!

             

            70’s chick (hippie) costume
            Peace and love! This costume is pretty easy to do-it-yourself and you might already own a paisley top, or fringed vest. Complete the costume with sleek-straight hair, or do the classic Farrah Fawcett hairstyle by following the YouTube tutorial below.

             


            Cruella De Vil costume
            Let your inner villain out this Halloween by wrapping yourself up in a Cruella inspired look. Her attire consisted of a classic black dress, fur coat and boots/heels. My Cruella De Vil outfit below looks as though it would be a modern look for her. Those Louboutin booties look as though they were made with her in mind! Besides the fact the coat is faux-fur, I’m pretty sure Cruella would have loved the rest.

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.

            5. Angel or devil?!

            Hard decision, both just as easy!

            For the devil costume bring out your favorite red dress with matching pumps, put on clip on devil horns, and watch the following video for a hot makeup look to wear that night.
