Halloween is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like us, you’re probably pulling your hair out because you still haven’t locked down your look. Somehow, you seem to find yourself in the same bind year after year. But don’t worry—coming up with a creative costume doesn’t have to involve a lot of work. All you need is a brilliant idea and a few key beauty products to carry it out.

This Halloween, we found three cool characters that are surprisingly easy to create.

Throwback Thursday

The ‘90s are back big-time these days—and what better way to pay homage to the past than with a #tbt costume packed with the perfect ‘90s makeup. Vampy lipstick (think “The Craft”) and charcoal eyeliner (outlining the entire eye) are the essential beauty ingredients for this outfit. Throw on a retro chocker and a spaghetti strap dress and you’ll be set to step out like an young Gwen Stefani in no time.

Kylie Jenner

If you keep up with the Kardashians, you’ve probably noticed that the clan’s youngest, Kylie Jenner, has been sporting some seriously oversized lips lately. All you need to pull “a Kylie” is a muted lipliner with which to draw an exaggerated pout, liquid eyeliner to create a dramatic cat-eye and—if you’re feeling really ambitious—green hair spray for that dip-dye effect.

Basic

We’ve all seen the Buzzfeed features on basic females, and while the concept may be a tad controversial, it sure makes for a great Halloween costume. Simply stock up on shimmery pink lipgloss, flatiron your hair, and go bananas with the bronzer. A Pumpkin Spice Latte and a set of medium-sized pearls are your ultimate accessories.

Mani Monday: Six Halloween Nail Polish Hues That Will Make You Boo-tiful

This Halloween, treat yourself to one of these six spooky shades!

Halloween Mani

Halloween is just around the corner and we’re super excited to get into the spirit of the season. Being the beauty junkies that we are, however, we’re looking forward to complementing our costume with some haunting nail polish hues. Now, before you bemoan the fact that DIY designs only apply to the artistically-inclined, don’t worry, over-the-top nail art isn’t our strong suite either. While we admire the elaborate illustrations of the steady-handed, we just don’t have the skill set to make our fingernails that freaky. So what’s the alternative? Well, in our world, a set of wickedly dark polishes will do. Here are six spooky shades that have us spellbound this season.

Mani Monday

When it comes to nail polish colors, nothing says classic-cool like a rich red hue. Perhaps it’s the staggering amount of nuance that exists in one shade, or just our inner femme fatale crying out for freedom—whatever the reason, we can’t help returning to those mean reds season after season. This fall, we’ve fallen in love with five fierce shades that have quickly replaced moody midnight tones as our favorites. Enjoy!
