Halloween Costume & Makeup Ideas

Halloween is next week!  But don't worry, there's still time to pull together a smashing costume and makeup for whatever event you may be going to, whether it's this Friday, Saturday, or on actual Halloween itself.  I came across this great blog by Ecouterre with seven last minute Halloween ideas you can pull from your closet...and they're all adorable.  With the right makeup, no one will know you only thought it up now!  Here are my ideas for makeup and hair pairings for this great costumes.

Cat Burglar

Even if you don't have a striped shirt, throw on all black, some bling, and a bag and voila: you're a burglar.  Of course every good cat burglar needs a smoky, cat eye.  Make sure to add some silver shadow, black liner, and lots of mascara.  If your party is extra swanky, make sure to add some sparkle into that eye shadow.  You can go Cat Woman style with long curled locks, or slick your hair into a sleek pony tail or side braid.  After all, you wouldn't want your hair to get in the way of all those diamonds.   Don't forget the diamond stud earrings!

Morton Salt Girl

If I didn't already have a costume idea, I'd totally do this!  Pair this so cute idea with a poppy yellow eye.  Glam it up by adding a smooth black liquid liner and tons of mascara.  Add a pop of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks and keep you lips neutral.  Making this costume more easy?  Simple hair.  If you have long locks and want to fake a bob, straighten your hair then fold it under and pin the ends to your scalp, straighten again if it's looking too puffy.

Dora the Explorer

Go all out with color and cuteness by dressing up as our favorite Spanish cartoon!  Pick the color that goes best with your complexion and play up your eyes.  Match that purple backpack or magenta top.  Dora is a youngster, so don't make your look too adult, go easy on the mascara and keep your bright pink blush to the apples of your cheeks only.  This is another classic bob look for hair, but a pony tail will look great as well.  Try these makeup ideas below, see the products here.

Who or what will you be dressing up as for Halloween?
