What are you going to be for Halloween? It's the universal question that starts long before the sun sets on Labor Day weekend — and it can be just as annoying as it is exciting. The possibility! The pictures! The pressure!
Luckily, there are many opportunities for
makeup lovers to get crafty — some glittery, icy blue eye shadow can create a '90s pop star while a classic black cat can be born from a few simple swipes of charcoal liner. We can respect the simple costumes, but this year, there's one look that will continue to trend: Kylie Jenner.
Channeling an of-the-moment celeb makes your costume instinctively recognizable, but original enough that not everyone (and their five BFFs) will be wearing a variation of the same look. Our recommendation? Show your pop culture know how
and have a major lip moment as the youngest Jenner.
Not only can we pick your costume, we've taken all the legwork out of your planning. Brows, lashes, a killer wig that's under $20 — we found everything you need to look authentically Kylie. Plus, you're sure to be
selfie-ready all night. Seven steps to Halloween gold, ahead.

18-step makeup routine
, Kylie shows that her airbrushed complexion starts with a base of Make Up For Ever foundation, but first it's mixed with another formula...

Most glam makeup devotees will already have one (or five) of these babies laying around. Kylie is also a fan, and she uses the spongey tool to bounce her foundation into her skin. Saturate it with water, squeeze out the excess, then dab your way to Jenner status.

Charlotte Tilbury contour palette
. Her application technique? Keep your contour strokes tight. "The closer together you make [the strokes], the thinner your nose will look," Kylie says.

The contour doesn't stop there — time to shade your socket to sultry, Kylie-approved perfection. How? Kylie dusts her lids with a light brown shadow, going a little bit darker at her crease. In her
makeup routine video
, she shows that her best application practices include blending a dark brown shadow across her lashline before bringing it out to a slight wing.

For further depth, the youngest Jenner likes sweeping the hollows of her cheeks with this brown powder because it's matte and mimics a real shadow.

Kylie rocks the Instagram brow trend: A slightly-faded look that goes from light to dark as you move towards the outside of the face. To achieve this, pick up her super pigmented, brow pencil pick.
Tip: Fill in the arch and tail with a heavy hand, lightly define the bottom and top borders using short strokes, then lightly trace in the center. (Props if you can pull off the

To ensure that the sculpted arches don't disappear by the end of the night — that will not be very Kylie of you — use an eye shadow brush dipped in translucent powder to set your work.

Anyone who follows Kylie on Instagram knows that her lashes are next level dramatic — in a good way. Luckily for us, it's often a result of easy-to-apply strip lashes. Rob Scheppy, one of the Kardashian's go-to glam gurus,
that he once used an entire box of lashes on Kylie.
While we don't expect that dedication and skill for Halloween, you
go big by applying a strip of lashes then popping the outside of your lashes with a few partial strips.
Kylie, is that you?
