The final countdown for Halloween is here, and if you’ve yet to find your costume you’re probably in a panic. That’s where these makeup-centered looks come into play. Whether you’re an expert or just want a quick and easy solution, there’s a last minute Halloween makeup look for you!
Halloween may be all about dressing up and having fun, but if you forgot to plan your costume ahead, it can also be stressful. Luckily, celebrities like Victoria Justice and Gigi Hadid (plus some YouTube experts) have done the hard work for all of us and found the perfect looks that just require a bit of makeup. See how you can use makeup to create a fun look, below, no matter what you makeup level of expertise.
Easy: For a look that doesn’t require a ton of makeup skills but will get you compliments for the chic factor, copy the Jeremy Scott runway look sported by Gigi. Once you copy the Wella Professionals hair guide, replicate the makeup by applying your foundation and a finishing powder. Use MAC Blacktrack Fluidline Gel Liner and On The Hunt Superslick Liquid Eye Liner to create a classic cat eye on the upper lid and fishtail liner on the lower lashline. For the coral lips, MAC Pro LipMix in Orange, White and Medium Nude were mixed for a custom shade, but you could also use MAC Lipstick in Flamingo for a subtler take on the coral color without all of the mixing.
Medium: If you want a look that’s a little out of the box, but not super difficult to achieve, why not go as everyone’s favorite Snapchat filter, the puking rainbow? Getting Pretty‘s Brittany shares the whole how-to, which really only requires you to add the Mehron Makeup Palette to your makeup kit.
Last Minute Halloween Makeup — Beginner Or Pro, Find Your Match
Pro: Superior makeup skills and the patience to match (or a really nice friend who’s a makeup genius) may be required for this cartoon look Victoria tried out on Instagram, but it’s definitely going to be a hit. Makeup artist Lusine Galadjian created the look for Victoria, and for anyone bold enough to give it a try, there are tons of YouTube tutorials dedicated to the comic book look (speech bubble not included).
