With polyester cobwebs and black spiders dangling in windows across the city, it's pretty obvious that Halloween has crept up on us once again. And, as we find ourselves only weeks away from the hair-raising holiday, we are faced with a dreadful decision — what will our costumes be? No doubt, some of us embrace this fantasy-filled occasion and have been planning our wicked getups since last November. But, if your costume cauldron is looking a little sparse, this decision can be a harrowing one.
Alas, we’re here to show you how to create a trio of otherworldly Halloween looks with this DIY Halloween makeup tutorial. From a Brit fashion star (with brows to die for!) to the Queen Bee of Pop, this step-by-step guide shows you how the right beauty tools (and the occasional wig) can turn your costume nightmares into sweet dress-up dreams. We’ve even thrown in some goth glam as an ode to one of our fave freaky films. So, drop that bowl of candy, put your day-to-day look on the shelf, and let the hocus-pocus begin.
