#1: DIY Halloween Costume Ideas

Makeup is a huge part of making your completing the look of your costume! YouTube star, Kalyn Nicholson is known for her many tutorials from “How to Start a Night Routine,” to “Easy Vegan Recipes.” As a lover of all things fall, she created a video tutorial of four easy and affordable DIY Halloween costumes! First, she designed a spooky scarecrow look by defining the deep parts of her eyes and cheeks to make her look dead and scary, and then went over certain areas with black face paint to add the eerie details. She also made a Cheshire cat look with defined eyes, a huge painted smile, a skeleton, and a lazy sleepyhead look, for those who are short on time!

#2: Dead McDonald’s Worker

What a fright! This makeup look combines spooky skeletons and pop art! If you have extra time before Halloween night (and some steady hands), try out this look! Pop art makes you look like a comic book character, and adds that unique flare to your Halloween makeup. Throw in something dead and creepy, like a skeleton or zombie, and voilà! You now have a completely creative and scary Halloween look!
