Couldn’t find time to scour the mall for a cool, totally original Halloween costume? To save you from showing up costume-less to this weekend’s festivities, we’ve found five easy ways you can get into the Halloween spirit. Let your makeup bag (and YouTube) save the day.
Scroll through to see five Halloween tutorials that take 10 minutes or less to recreate!
Skip the antlers and the nose, and this deer makeup look morphs into a sweet wood nymph costume. Just throw on something pastel-colored and you’ll be Halloween-ready.
The witch: an oldie, but a goodie. All you need is dramatic eye makeup, a dark lip, and a black dress to complete the costume. Who says all witches wear pointy hats, anyway?
Even if you don’t follow this tutorial exactly, you really can’t go wrong when you’re turning yourself into an alien. Apply light face makeup, go nuts with green eye shadow, put on a green or silver outfit, and you’re set.
For a subtler approach to the holiday, try a retro beauty look. Stick with classic matte makeup, defined brows, and red lips, and be sure to add a hair accessory. As long as your makeup is decade-specific, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a bow or bandana, people will get your ‘50s vibe.
The easiest way to pull together a Halloween look when you’re in a time crunch? Only make up half of your face, naturally. Make one side all white, smudge some black details on top, and do as much or as little as you please to the other side.
