One of my favorite holidays is just around the corner- Halloween! If you are like me and leave choosing a costume to the last minute, then you know the struggle of having to come up with a quick costume four hours before trick or treating with the kids or hours before a friend’s Halloween bash. The best way to execute a last-minute costume is with some fun makeup- it requires little purchasing of materials and is usually not as difficult as it looks in the Pinterest photos! Here are a few of my must have products for creating fun Halloween looks.

Dramatic Lashes:
Lashes are the most important part of any Halloween look! Sephora carry’s an array of fun Halloween-inspired lashes as well as some simple glam ones.

Black Lipstick:
A good black lipstick can create a very eerie effect. Whether you are looking to channel your inner spooky ghoul or a sassy witch, a coat of black lipstick can do the job! My favorite is by MAC in shade “In The Spirit”

Waterproof Eyeliner:
Whether you are looking to draw a spider web on your face or give yourself a super spooky smokey eye, you are going to need a good waterproof eyeliner that won’t budge! My favorite is Urban Decay’s 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil.

Face Shimmer/Glitter:
Last year the mermaid costume was all the rage. This year I am anticipating it is the unicorn. Whatever ethereal creature you choose, you are going to need a dusting of face glitter. Makeup Forever makes an AMAZING ‘Diamond Powder’ in several shades.
