Beauty products needed to create a fantastic Lady Gaga costumeThere are a few costumes that are considered old standbys – cat, witch, bride. However, every year there are a few new get-ups that you just know are going to be especially popular, as they reflect a current fad that's sweeping the nation.

This year, amongst the Jersey Shore characters and YouTube sensations, there is one icon that may be a favorite to impersonate – Lady Gaga!

However, dressing as Ms Bad Romance involves more than a blonde wig and an outfit made of meat. There are actually a variety of beauty products gals should use to transform into Gaga.

According to, ladies should start by lining their eyes with a black liquid liner and then adding on false lashes. For added drama, however, apply two to three coats of mascara on top of the faux fringe.

Lips and cheeks can be kept simple, as a peachy-rose hue for each will keep attention on the intense eyes.

Finally, the news source recommends donning metallic patterned nails. Women can either use patterned nail transfers or create funky designs using a few different bottles of nail polish.

Heidi Klum to don colorful makeup on HalloweenHeidi Klum is known for many things – Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model, Victoria’s Secret Angel, Project Runway host – but she’s also made a name for herself by donning some truly memorable Halloween costumes.

Over the past few years, Klum has shown up to events dressed as a cat, the Hindu goddess Kali (multiple arms and all) and as an apple from the Garden of Eden, and the German supermodel usually wears makeup from head-to-toe.

So, it’s no surprise that people are clamoring to find out what Klum will be dressed as this year. However, she recently dished to InStyle magazine about how she creates these epic ensembles.

“It takes hours. I do my own make-up and I really go full-on. I also do my husband’s makeup and help with his costume,” Klum told the news source. “It’s really a night where more is more. It’s fun to pump up the volume and bring out some color and magic!”

Ladies who are preparing for Halloween can take this opportunity to don some unexpected shades of cosmetics. Line your lips with a black eye pencil and fill in your pout with red lip gloss for a gorgeous vamp look.
