Caught in a costume conundrum? We’ve all been there. And if you’re as busy as we are and time is of the essence, you may not have your Halloween costume in time for that big bash. But before you cancel those scary-fun plans, why not create a costume from pieces you already have in your closet?! #Genius.
The costumes below are designed for those in a time crunch, on the hunt for something low-key, or just in the mood to keep it simple. Scroll down for Halloween costumes (and the makeup to match!) you can put-together in no time. The best part? You can rock the pieces in each look through fall and beyond.
Prrr! This sultry little number is not only flattering (who doesn’t look stunning in black?!), but it’s ultra-fierce, too!
Get the look: with this look, we are going to use a black gel liner, black eyeshadow, bronzer, and a highlighter. The gel liner will create the cat eye, as well as the nose and whiskers. The bronzer will be used as a blending mechanism around the eyes and cheek bones. Lastly, the highlight will give more life to the eyes and nose.
SNAPCHAT DOG FILTER
This adorable costume is absolute pawfection! Playful and easy-to-create, it’s the best way to be in-the-know about the trendiest snapchat lens in the game.
Get the look: To achieve this look, you will need a dark brown shadow, a copper shadow, and black shadow to define the nose, and a sparkly highlighter. The brown shadow will be used as a contour for eyes and nose, as well as shaping the nose of the dog. The black shadow will be used to give more definition around the rims of the nose. Lastly, the highlighter will be used to brighten up the eyes as well as bringing in shine to the nose. This look would be compatible with a natural shadow and lip.
DAY OF THE DEAD
Fun and festive, there’s no better way to celebrate all hallows eve! Hint: this boo-tiful look is more sexy than scary.
Get the look: this look isn’t the typical day of the dead look. It is more appealing and glamorous. You will be using a light concealer, black shadow, purple shadow, and black gel liner. The gel liner will create the opening of the eye, as well as the nose. The two shadows will be used to blend the liner and to contour the face.
Complete the look!
Sexy Kitten: Pair a bodycon dress with the over-the-knee Makita boot in black for a classic and cool combination. Top it off with some cat ears, a bronzy makeup look, and some voluminous locks and go!
Day of the Dead: Rock the Alba bootie (how amazing are those details?!) with the Lace Mesh Bodycon dress and a red flower crown. When it comes to makeup, more is more, so grab the facepaint and use this image for inspo!
Snapchat Dog: Team the Fringey Pullover with a high-waisted skinny jean to set the tone for the look. Add a strappy bootie, some fun dog accessories, and an au natural makeup look and you’re set.
What do you think of these looks? Are you planning on going all out this year, or would you rather keep it simple with an easy-to-create costume?
