Not your average Halloween looks

With Halloween right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to post some costume makeup looks. I am SO over the witch costume, so here are some adult, creative looks without having to be "sexy nurse". Some of the looks are advanced but I think they're mostly re-creatable. 

I love Minnie Mouse. Red lip, red nails, false lashes and some big ears really pull this look into a grown-up Minnie.

This Bambi, or deer, look has been all over Pinterest and I think it's so cute- especially if you're olive or darker skin tone because then the white spots would be more obvious. I would use a new #2 pencil (with an unused eraser) and dip the eraser into a white, matte cream to get an opaque coverage. This would create even, allover dots.


Who needs Spiderman when you can be your own super hero? Start with a matte red lipstick as the base and then apply the web lines with a black, waterproof pencil. Use blue eyeshadow on the outer edges and you have your own custom Spidey-mask! 


For anyone who's not that savvy with makeup, a pretty mask is always a good idea. This snowflake mask is absolutely gorgeous. Pair it with a glittering, bedazzled flowing white dress and add some body shimmer and you are done!

With the right gown, a masquerade mask would be beautiful with a black, winged eyeliner, red lacquered lip and gorgeous flowing hair.

  4. I never thought of putting lipstick on my face, will it wash off easily?

    1. Ali, you'd definitely need a makeup remover first and then wash (maybe even exfoliate) but it should come off.
