If these full face make-up tutorials and celebrity costume ideas didn’t suit your fancy, maybe the following five last minute Halloween costumes will do the trick!
1. Morticia Addams
If you’ve got a black maxi dress or maxi skirt and top, this is the last minute halloween costume for you. Pair that outfit with a black wig (or your own black hair if you’ve got it!), winged liner, a red nail and lip, and you’re all set!
2. A hippie
This costume calls for flowy dresses, fringe, floppy hats and/or flared jeans. If you don’t have any of those pieces, you definitely have a friend that can lend you hers for the night! Finish the look with a few braids or feathers in your hair, a bare lip and painted eyes.
3. Sandy from Grease
If you’ve got a black top, tight black pants and a leather jacket, you were born to be Sandy from Grease. Pair the look with big, black fluttering eyelashes, a red lip and curly locks and you’re ready to dance the night away.
4. Beauty Pageant Contestant
Grab your nicest dress, highest heels and practice waving like the queen, cause you’re a beauty pageant contestant! Make sure to exaggerate your make-up, nails and hair for this look, and if you’ve got time, run to the closest dollar store for a crown and sash!
5. Rosie the Riveter
For this look all you need is a denim shirt, high-waisted denim pants and a red bandana. Apply some red lipstick and your everyday make-up and you’re now the symbol of feminism!
