Beauty / October 30, 2014

If you’re an 11th hour Halloweener like me, you’re probably scrambling to come up with some kind of costume for Friday night.

Fear not—finding a quickie solution just takes a little beauty ingenuity. The following spur-of-the-moment suggestions should spark some ideas and have you ready to celebrate All Hallows Eve in no time.

Skull Candle

Soap & Paper Factory Skull Candle, $36
Decorated with a bow-tie clad skull that’s both creepy and campy, this black tea, citrus and basil-scented candle will get you in the mood for devilish tricks and treats.

Pink Handlebar Mustache

Pink Handlebar Moustache, $5
Don’t underestimate the power of a silly moustache. This brightly colored handlebar ‘stache is fun, a bit feminine and oh-so-easy slap on. Pair it with a cute pink hat or short pink wig to add extra pizzazz.

Lip Tar

OCC Lip Tar in Black Metal Dahlia, $18
Give your lips a shock of serious color with this deep burgundy lip color. It’s intensely opaque and has a subtle shimmer that will leave you with a sexy, vampiric pout.

Foil Finish Eye Shadow

Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow, $32
Add some of Stila’s magically metallic, fabulously foiled shadow for an instant, out-of-this-world look.

On the Fringes Eyelashes

On the Fringes Lace Lashes, $7
Use these lacy faux lashes to create a quick, creepy doll costume.
