3 Quick Beauty Tutorials for Halloween

3 Quick Beauty Tutorials for Halloween

Try one of these three simple tutorials for a quick, chic costume this year!

By: Sarah James

Halloween costumes are never complete without great hair and makeup. Try out these three tutorials for a Halloween transformation that will make any costume believable.

1. Medieval Maiden (Braids and Dewy Skin)
This look is super easy to achieve and takes less than 10 minutes! The key is keeping your complexion dewy and youthful, so try a foundation or moisturizer with a luminous finish. 

Once you’re glowy, try adding a few easy braids to your mane. One of the quickest ways to get the look is to add a braid on both sides of the temples and join together in the back with a few bobby pins, like the photo above. Starting with a one-inch section of hair at the temples, braid towards the back of your head and secure with a bobby pin. Repeat with the second side, and you'll be ready for the costume party.

2. Fifties Beatnik (Smooth Ponytail and Cat Eye)
With skinny jeans in high demand, a late ’50s beatnik costume is probably already hanging in your closet. Pair black skinnies with a boat neck top, and half your work is done. As for hair and makeup, keep it quick and easy. A dramatic cat eye created with black liquid liner would be perfect (If you have trouble keeping your hand steady, try placing dots across the lash line and connecting with the liner.), and don't forget the ponytail! Most late ’50s stylistas wore their ponytails right below the crown of the head.

3. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Opulent Bold Colours with Gold Touches)
Replicating this heroine’s opulent look is very easy. Think fierce red lips and warm gold tones for the eyes. If you don’t have these colours already, CoverGirl’s Catching Fire collection inspired by the film will have a great range of colours to choose from. Pair these makeup schemes with a red dress and bold, sparkly gold nail polish, and your Halloween look will be complete!
