Somehow, summer is already over, fall is picking up steam, and it's time to talk about Halloween (and rhyme while we're at it). It's hard to believe that we're already discussing costumes, but ladies and gents, the time has arrived for planning. While we know you'll always have a cat headband in your closet as a back-up plan (and probably some little devil horns as well) it's always good to have some creative juices flowing to figure out a couple of other costumes that you can DIY — with a little bit of help from some makeup of course.
We've compiled a bit of inspiration for you, from pop art to spiders to that creepy clown thing from Saw, that can all be made with just a few beauty supplies. Click through the slideshow and let us know what you’ll be rocking this Halloween — and of course which other costume ideas you have!
You can't go wrong with a flapper costume! Get yourself a beaded headband and tuck hair into the back elastic to give yourself a '20s hairstyle.
The Jigsaw Killer
With the classic Jigsaw Halloween makeup, you'll be sure to have the creepiest costume of all. Using super smudged black eyeshadow, create dark eyes, then use white eyeliner and red lipstick to create the swirls on the cheeks. Finish with red lipstick, black lines coming from the corners of your mouth down your chin and you've got yourself one killer DIY.
Spider lashes, anyone? Create cobwebs over your eyes with grey, black and white eyeliner, drawing classic web shapes from above the brow and down into the apples of your cheeks.
