Do you eagerly count down the days to Halloween, but always have trouble picking out the perfect costume? You don’t need to be a professional makeup artist to flaunt some of these super-sexy looks in time for your big holiday bash! With a few of these quick tips, you can pull off a range of frightfully fun styles with tools from your very own cosmetics bag.
Vampire. They’re trendy, mysterious and impervious to the aging process – what’s not to love about being a vampire? From the Twilight Saga to True Blood, the undead have a timeless allure we just can’t help but swoon over. To sink your teeth into this lively costume idea, start by painting your nails a vampy shade of blood red. With Butter London Steampunk Ball Collection The Art of Alchemy, you can capture the sultry energy the undead are so known for.
And as any creature of the night knows, nothing ruins a perfectly decadent party like an uneven complexion, or worse, the dreaded signs of sun damage. Before getting into costume, apply a chemical-free and ultra-hydrating product like COOLA – Face SPF 20 Mineral Sunscreen Rose Essence Tint, which can keep your complexion free from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
Witch. Forget the green skin and the wart-covered nose! If you really want to bewitch your pals this Halloween season, the best costume for you is as a witch. Back in the day, you might have relished dressing up in ghoulish face paint and a black wig to channel a spooky witch vibe, but this year, you can show how magically appealing you’ve become by sporting skin so radiant and age-defying, onlookers are sure to fall under your spell.
With an anti-aging cream like BABOR – Baborganic Pure Age Preventing Cream, you can boost cell regeneration and renewal, both essential in turning back the clock on fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. Best of all, this green product features 100 percent organic ingredients, just like you’d find in your average cauldron.
You can also add a captivating sparkle to your style by sprinkling loose mineral eyeshadow like those offered by Colorscience Pro – Genie Sparkle Color over your peepers. In dazzling shades like Moonlighting or Wait Until Dark, you’re sure to create a scene.
Medieval queen. For fans of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, this fantasy series has inspired everything from home decor to personal style. This Halloween, you can channel your inner regal and capture the dynamic energy of the show by dressing up just like a Medieval queen!
For a fresh and feminine look that will complement your ensemble, leave your hair unbound or crown yourself with a loose braid. Hair products that will add volume and definition can be a great way to give your tresses a subtle yet luminous appeal.
Playful cat. Are you looking for a costume you can pull together in a pinch? While it may not be the most unique, dressing up as a playful cat for Halloween can be a flattering costume for women of any age and with a few of the right beauty products you can make this style one-of-a-kind. The best part about dressing up as a mischievous kitty for the holiday? It gives you the chance to show off flawlessly crafted cat eyes!
To start, grab a primer and blend it along your upper lash line to ensure your eyeliner stays intact throughout the evening, then gently trace a line over your upper lash. Most importantly, don’t forget to add a swoop! You can make your initial line thicker depending on how much of a statement you want to make.
A precision eyeliner like BABOR – Maxi Definition Eye Liner (Black) offers a calligraphy tip that can make it easy to draw the most exact line possible. One thing’s for sure, though – with this bold look, you’re bound to make a dramatic impression!
