Halloween is just around the corner…do you know what your costume is going to be yet? If not, we’re here to help! These Halloween ideas are all based on things that are easily accessible but will still give you a creative and fun costume in no time!
Comic Book Pop Art Make Up
This is a fun Halloween idea that even a beginner to hair and makeup can do! Fill in your brows with a black liquid eyeliner. Use that same eyeliner to outline all of your features to make yourself look more two dimensional. Next, use a solid color over the eyelid and line your eyes with a winged eyeliner. Finish off with some red face paint to dot yourself all over for the pop-art effect! Want a more in depth tutorial? Check here!
If you have long hair but still want to pull of that cute flapper bob, this is the trick for you! Divide the hair in your nape away from the rest of your hair. Braid into two pigtails, then pin the hair back into the nape, securing it away. Curl the rest of your hair and pin it, being sure to not curl the hair all the way to the root. Once the hair is cooled, release your curls and brush them out for that vintage look! Pin hair into a bob shape and add a headband for the final touch! You will be transformed!

Dapper for a Day
This is a fun way to look dapper even if you have longer hair! Deep side part your hair and slick it back into a secure ponytail. Tuck the pony into a dress shirt of your choosing to conceal your length and you’ll be set to go! For more illustrations of how this look comes together, take a look over here!
This look takes a little bit more work, but is definitely a spooky touch to any halloween costume! Start by gluing some wax onto your skin, use vaseline to even out the difference in texture from the wax to your skin. Use a tool to create the “wound” in the wax and adjust the wax as you see fit. Start painting on the flesh and blood tones onto your skin to enhance the wounded effect. Use some red blush around the wound to make it appear to be irritated and finish with some blood paste and fake blood as you feel necessary. For photos to help you out with this, head over here!
