Halloween is the best holiday ever! Costumes: check. Jack-o’-lanterns: check. Candy: check! Have you chosen which character you will go as? If you haven’t, don’t worry. We have a few ideas for you, and you won’t even have to spend a lot of money on a costume. In fact, the only thing you will need in order to create your own creepy disguise is makeup. And your face. Check it out.
1. Classic skull
The best costumes for Halloween are the scary ones. Make yourself look like a skeleton! It’s easier than you think and you only need some black and white cream face makeup. The creepy contact lenses are a welcome addition.
2. Pop art character
You left it to the last possible moment and now you have no time to get a costume or do elaborate makeup? No biggie. Applying the pop art makeup will take you so little time, your procrastination won’t be a problem. And you probably already own everything you need in your basic makeup kit.
3. Cute scarecrow
You can’t decide if you want to look cute or scary? Why not both? Throw on a plaid shirt and put on your scarecrow makeup. Mission accomplished.
If you want to look like you’ve stepped out of some old legend, this is the perfect choice for you. This beautiful, mystical, glamorous and oh-so-glittery makeup is super simple and it requires no additional purchases as you probably already have everything you need.
5. Melting skull
Don’t care for the simple things? Here is a challenge for you: the melting skull. I hope you’ve got patience because you’ll need it! And some face paint and special effects makeup. You’ll need those too!
6. Creepy Snow White
You could be Snow White! But not regular Snow White. That’s boring. Snow White with a creepy side. It’s definitely worth taking your time for this look.
7. Vintage 1959 Barbie
You think Creepy Snow White is way too complicated for you? Here’s a simpler idea. Retro Barbie! It’s really easy to apply this makeup and you won’t need any special products.
8. Glamorous Cleopatra
You deserve to be treated like a Wueen. And you will, if you choose to go as the Queen of Queens – Cleopatra! The abundance of blue and metallic gold is perfect for any Halloween party.
9. Shimmering mermaid
You’ll need to make a quick trip to the store for rhinestones, pearls and some netting for the scales. But this gorgeous, glitter-everywhere type of makeup will make you look absolutely stunning.
10. Little Red Riding Hood
Add a creepy twist to sweet Little Red Riding Hood. Or don’t, you know, if you prefer the traditional version. But Halloween is supposed to be scary, and those contacts sure contribute to the overall spookiness of this look.
11. Woodland deer
If you’d rather look cute than scary, this makeup is just for you. It’s super simple! You can even make antlers by pulling your hair up in double space buns.
12. Harley Quinn
Harley Quinn is an excellent choice for a Halloween costume. It’s both adorable and creepy, and the best thing about it is that it’s actually quite simple. But don’t forget the temporary hair dye: that is a must!
