Get your hands on these beauty quick products to put together a Halloween look FAST!

Some people start planning their Halloween costume in July, but there are some of us (like me – eek!) who are very last minute with their costume ideas. Check out these six easy beauty essentials that can help you put a look together fast!

It is my forecast that Snooki will be the costume du jour this season. Here’s how to get her “Speed Bump” in a flash from the good folks at Blow NY Blow Dry Salon:
Work in a dime-size dollop of Ready Set Blow (which cuts down on drying time and helps set the look) into towel-dried hair, then blow your hair out with a round brush. Leave an inch of hair free at the hairline, then tease your hair at the crown with a fine-toothed comb. Gently brush the unteased hair at the hairline over the teased section (be careful not to flatten the volume) and secure the style with criss-crossed bobby pins. Finish the look with hairspray and you’re done! (Don’t forget the self-tanner and eyeliner.)

Other quick costume ideas? Maybe you can channel your inner burlesque dancer with fun feathered eyelashes! NYX Special Effects Lashes in Soprano are lash strips of tiny black feathers that are amazing! If you want to go full on glam, check out Sephora Beauty in a Box: Vegas Showgirl.

Feeling in more of a vampire mood? Sephora Beauty In  A Box: Vampire contains everything you need to unleash your inner bloodsucker.

You could do a complete Cirque du Soleil look with the Make Up For Ever: Makeup Tricks and Treats Kit, which has beautiful products to create an amazing Halloween painted face.

But basically, throwing on a wig can change your entire look (and personality,) so why not head to your local costume shop and pick out something really fun and different, like this Lady Gaga Blonde Wig with Pink Streaks?

No matter what you do, have fun and be safe out there, BFFs! Hope these help!
