Hannah’s Guide to Easy Halloween Makeup

ABC Family (or Freeform or whatever) does its 13 Nights of Halloween. Well, you can do 13 nights of Halloween themed makeup!

13 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

It’s not *quite* Halloween, so let’s go for something fall themed.

Dark and vampy, but still wearable!

12 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

You’ve still got almost 2 weeks!

I don’t know anyone who still drinks Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but this look is delicious:

11 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

We’re still celebrating fall here. Give me all the orange and gold glitter!!

10 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

This is for Christmas, but who cares? It’s GOLD!!

9 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

Shit’s getting real now. Let’s get ~spooky~!

Note: green hair optional.

8 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

Let’s get even spookier with that black lipstick!!

7 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN!

It’s a WEEK until Halloween!! Halloween parties are certain to start, so let’s start with the makeup-based costumes! First we’ll start with the cute:

Cats are a classic! Also a super easy costume – get/make cat ears, wear black, put on the makeup, and voila. BONUS: Make your bestie go as a witch.

6 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

Let’s get beautiful!

EVERYBODY wants to be a mermaid. Don’t waste that on Halloween night! Do it early, as it’s little effort. Just wear a glitter skirt and a crop top and boom, you’re Ariel.

5 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

Here’s another kind of easy one:

Throw on some wings and a flowy dress, and you’re set!

4 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

My roommate did this last year and it was terrifying. It’s the perfect bridge between pretty and scary.

….Okay, so it’s mostly scary. Get your more innocent dress and put your hair in pigtails or bows and you’ll have all you need.

3 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

We did cute-scary, now let’s do sexy-scary.

Vampires are not what they used to be, but they’re still fun. Plus all you gotta do is wear black and trail some red lipstick down your chin if you don’t want to commit.

2 DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

A fun and easy costume is a Final Girl.

You can honestly pick any horror film, and basically you just wear a tank top and short shorts, smudge some dirt on yourself, and create fake wounds. BONUS: make some fake blood stains and smear it on your shirt.

You can also make this someone like Lara Croft or Buffy the Vampire Slayer depending on how you accessorize.

1 DAY BEFORE HALLOWEEN:

Time to get real scary.

I hate clowns. I can’t even watch this video. But it’s very ~on trend~. And okay, the costume’s a little more difficult, but it’s almost Halloween!! Just get some white stockings, a white poofy dress, and a clown collar like this.

HALLOWEEN

This is it people!!!

Now, you should do whatever you want on Halloween. But because I’m a nerd, my favorite thing is to do full cosplays of my favorite characters! Here’s some tutorials below:

I have chosen less mainstream options in the past, like Aelita from Code Lyoko back in middle school (I wasn’t very popular), but this one can be a lot of fun and basically however much work you want it to be. I personally like to go all out.

And that’s it!! Happy Halloween, folks!!

Me when I realize Halloween’s in just a few weeks:
