Easy Halloween Looks You Can Do With Makeup You Already Have
Saves you money to spend on Halloween sweets instead.
Halloween might be just around the corner, but if you're in a pickle for a last minute disguise, Instagram has loads of easy peasy makeup ideas you can copy.
Even better, you can do them all with makeup you already have, so it'll save you loads of money to spend on Halloween sweets instead.
Make like an Egyptian with a little gold cream eyeshadow, black pencil liner, and some killer false lashes. A lot easier than building the pyramids, that’s fo sho.
OK so literally everyone is going to be Harley this Halloween (either that or Harambe), but so what when the make up’s this easy? Smudge that shadow, drag your fingers through a fresh red lip and hey presto puddin’ - you’re done.
Doe, a deer, a female deer
Pay tribute to everyone’s fave deer Snapchat filter with this cute Bambi look. Basically just a contour with some dots and a liquid eyeliner nose - even the laziest of lazies can pull this one off.
Zombie corpse thing
Simple, but effective. The key is a ghostly pale lip and purple shadow under the eyes, finished off with some creepy brown eyeliner face veins. Yes, face veins.
For those who like to keep things simple and chic. Line your lids with a spooky colour (red works just as well as green), add some drips, and outline the whole thing in black. NO PRAAAHBLEM*.
*although does require a fairly steady hand. Gulp.
Get your cartoon on with some dramatic liner work and a bit of shading.
Fans of the Batman femme fatale rejoice - all you really need to recreate this makeup look is some red and green eyeshadow. Also a leaf from the garden. Just don’t pick it off your mum’s fave plant, yeah?
Use foundation or powder to make your chin a slightly darker skin tone. Add lines. Add freckles. Done.
Cracked porcelain doll
Start with some classic makeup, then add a few strategically placed cracks with eyeliner. No sweat. Literally don’t sweat, you’ll ruin the whole thing.
If you’ve got black and white liquid liner, you’re pretty much set for this one. Spooky.
Unleash your inner rawwwwwwr with some strategically placed spots and a l’il black nose. Kewt.
Wanna throwback to the sixties? All you need is some seriously spiky lashes, some white liner and a wide-eyed stare. Groovy.
Essentially just do your makeup really badly. In a skillful way, of course.
