Halloween is, in fact, not too far away—and while the bulk of your party agenda likely won't be planned for months, that's not to say you can't get ahead on your look, even if you just prefer to take a laissez-faire attitude to this costume-centric holiday. Either way, we've got you covered.

In fact, consider this the ultimate lazy girl’s guide to celebrating Halloween without actually making any effort (or spending extra cash).
