Easy last-minute Halloween costume and makeup ideas
Whether it’s a DIY costume, spooky makeup, or an quick costume made from what you’ve got in your closet, it’s not too late to find a Halloween costume.
Halloween seems to pop up on most of us each year. Whether you have decided to attend a Halloween party at the last minute or you want to take your kids trick-or-treating in costume, we’ve got fast and easy solutions for you.
1. The ghost costume
You can never go wrong dressing up as a ghost, and it’s likely you have got all the materials you need right at home. Simply look for a white sheet, a pair of scissors, a black marker, and black shoes around your home. Drape the sheet over your head and mark where the eyes and mouth should be. Take it off and cut a hole for your eyes, mouth, and nose. Next, draw on the scariest facial expressions you can. If you prefer not to have the sheet over your head, cut an opening for your head and draw the face on your stomach/chest area.
Some have put a more modern twist on the ghost costume by writing out a conversation on the sheet of a person being “ghosted.”
2. Skip the costume, and go for the makeup
Sometimes makeup is the only costume you need. It can be striking and scary all in one, so that you don’t even need a costume. Take a look at makeup artist Avani’s Instagram for some spooky Halloween inspiration.
3. Rosie The Riveter
Rosie The Riveter has becomes a common Halloween costume because of how easy it is to put together the iconic look. A blue shirt, either denim or not, paired with blue jeans and a signature red bandana completes the look.
4. Three Blind Mice
Many have sought to create this costume by creating ears out of construction paper and attaching them to a headband. Combined with an all black outfit and and a pair of glasses, this costume is perfect for a trio.
