Our Favorite Celebrity Halloween MakeupIt’s that spooky time of year again! The leaves are falling, the sweaters are coming off of the hangers in our closets, and we can’t go anywhere without getting some variation of a pumpkin spiced snack. Have you thought of your Halloween costume yet? Check out our favorite celeb’s Halloween costumes and how they did their makeup!

Ashley TisdaleAshley Tisdale: So scary I almost didn’t recognize her! Ashley put a terrifying spin on a cute costume, I like to call it “Night of the Living Dead (Drop Gorgeous)” If you’re thinking about being a cute school girl-esque zombie like Ashley, this look is super easy to do. Grab some under-eye concealer, dark eye shadow, and eyeliner in a grey, purple or green tint. Use the dark eye shadow to black out your eyes and baby powder to make your skin look super creepy and pale. If you want to add any fake blood spots, make sure you get some red lipstick! Pair it with a school girl outfit and you’ll be a hottie zombie in no time!

Georgina ChapmanGeorgina Chapman: What a glam queen! If you wanna look like a 70′s rockstar like Georgina, make-up is everything. Go bold with your eye colors. Try something wild and crazy, like a dark purple or hot pink eye shadow. If you are able to, adding some shimmer will seriously give you some rock star points. Apply black eyeliner on your eyelids and underneath your eyes to really make them pop, and DON’T forget mascara. To really get that 70′s look, you are going to want to make your lips and cheeks bright and noticeable. Contour your cheeks with a vibrant pink blush and gloss those lips with some Barbie pink lipstick and you are good to go!

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian: Ariel who? Kim looks gorgeous as she pretends to be the Queen of Sea for the night. If you want to get this look, you’ll have a fun time getting to be not only gorgeous but mystical as well! Start off using your normal foundation, but use a luminating cream by the sides of your eyes, high on your cheekbones and lightly down the front of your nose as well. This will make your face look glowing and magical. For your eyeshadow, find a light shimmery purple and deep jade or green. Apply the purple on your inner eyelids and blend with the green to create a beautiful mixed look. Finish off your eyes with some dark green eyeliner and purple mascara if you want to be daring! Use a peachy pink color on your lip and enjoy being a mermaid for a night!

Simple but spooky Halloween nail ideas

Whether or not you’re going all out with a costume this year, a manicure is a great way to get into the Halloween spirit. If you’re looking to sport some spooky designs or just festive colors on your nails, here are a few easy but eye-catching ideas:

Franken-nails
If “Frankenstein” is your favorite horror film, why not use the title character for some holiday nail inspiration? For this monster themed mani, start with two coats of the Lippmann Collection’s I Wanna Be Sedated Nail Lacquer. Then carefully divide your nails into several semi-vertical sections by painting on curved lines with black polish. Finally, use a toothpick to add a few cross stitches on the lines.

All eyes on you
If you’re going for a more goofy vibe this Halloween, googly eyes may be

the perfect accent. First, paint a coat of black lacquer on all of your nails as the background. Let the polish dry, then carefully drop blobs of white polish onto each of your nails. Let the dots dry to avoid smearing, then dip a toothpick into the black polish and add dots inside the white circles to create the pupils. For the googly effect, place the black dots off-center and in different directions.

Gruesome glam
This blood-dripped manicure is both frightful and fashion-forward. In fact, according to The Daily Varnish, the idea was inspired by the nail art in one of Prabal Gurung’s runway shows. For the base, you can use any light neutral shade, but the Lippmann Collection’s Pretty Vacant Nail Lacquer is perfect. After applying your two layers of the base color, draw several lines with blood red lacquer at the tip of the nail. Make each line a different length for a realistic dripping effect. Then go back and connect each blob by painting a red line across the nail tip in short strokes. You can even add a few dots of red down toward the base for a more genuine splatter effect.

Candy mani
Looking for a sweeter style? Opt for a candy corn manicure. Start with two coats of bright orange nail polish: For this design to work, it’s crucial to let the base dry completely. Then cut a piece of tape that is roughly 1/3 the length of your nail, place the tape across the center and press it down to make sure it sticks – this will ensure you achieve a clean line. Paint the exposed part of your nail at the cuticle with opaque white lacquer, and the top portion near the tip with a bright yellow hue. Wait five minutes before carefully removing the strip of tape. Finish with a clear top coat to lock in the delicious design.

Retro Halloween makeup how-tos

There are plenty of Hollywood-inspired Halloween costume ideas that are both eye-catching and easy to create.

However, for many of the most creative costumes, cosmetics are a key component and without the right look, people might not recognize your idea. If you’re planning to draw inspiration from an iconic retro goddess, try one of these ideas for a costume that’s bound to stand out this holiday:

Betty Draper
Getting your hair into a proper ’60s ‘do will be half the battle if you’re channeling any of the sirens on Mad Men. The key to Betty’s look is keeping your makeup looking delicate and demure. Use a pencil in a shade close to your natural hair color to lightly fill in your brows for a bolder look, then apply a layer of a light brown shadow on your eyelids and a coppery hue in the crease. After curling your lashes, apply two coats of lengthening mascara. Dust a light pink blush just on the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush. Finally, opt for a matte rosy lipstick to mimic her perfect pout.

Marilyn Monroe
This iconic star requires a serious dose of glamor when it comes to makeup. Dab a cream champagne eyeshadow across your lid and follow with a brown shade in the crease, blending as you go toward the outer corner of the eye. Use a liquid liner across your top lash line to define your eyes, extending slightly at the outer corner for a subtle cat-eye effect. Don’t skimp on mascara – feel free to apply three coats of a curling formula to get them looking va-va-voom. Swirl a large blush brush into a subtle pink pigment and dust it along the contouring of your cheekbones. Get her flawless pout by lining your lips with a rich red pencil and layering on lipstick in the same hue. Most importantly, draw a beauty mark above your lip on the left side of your face with a dark brown pencil to get Marilyn’s signature look.

Daisy Buchanan
Considering the major motion picture adaptation, this is definitely the year to dress up as the ethereal 1920s character from “The Great Gatsby.”  Luckily, it doesn’t take a ton of makeup either. Start by applying highlighter on the brow bone to create a wide-eyed look. Then brush a taupe eyeshadow on your lid and use a small brush to lightly dust it along your lower lash line, blending as you go for a soft effect. One layer of volumizing mascara will do the trick, but apply extra pigment to the outer lashes for a come-hither look when you’re batting your eyes. Reach for a semi-sheer coral lipstick with a faintly glossy finish and you’re ready for one of Gatsby’s famous soirées.
