    Halloween is the holiday for makeup-lovers. Yes, elaborate costumes and themed hairstyles are fun, but this is also the one day we get to show off our next-level face-beat skills. (And TBH, throwing together a cool beauty look is much easier than digging through your closet for a last-minute costume.)

    So after a bit of brainstorming and a lot of digging through craft-supply stores, we teamed up with Maybelline and makeup artist Michael Anthony to bring our visions to life. Here you'll find three makeup looks for every Halloween personality — from the spooky superfan who goes all out to the procrastinator who waits until October 30 to make plans. Now — pics or it didn't happen.

    Simple Sparkle
    You can't go wrong with glitter, and Halloween is the perfect excuse to wear it everywhere. Plus, it's quick and easy to apply when you're down to the wire. Whether you're going out as a mermaid, rockstar, or fill-in-the-blank goddess, you'll want to grab some sparkly stuff and take notes.

    If your glitter doesn't have a strong base to adhere to, it's going to stick to everything but your face. (Seriously, your bathroom counters will never be the same again.) So choose a cream eyeshadow in a similar color family as your glitter and apply it to your entire lid. We used Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome in Bronze Sheen.

    Next, dip your index finger into some loose glitter and dab and roll it onto your eyes. You can go with craft-store glitter or opt for the cosmetic variety.

    As you move onto your cheeks or other areas of the face, make sure you prep with an emollient lotion first. Then, pat on your glitter and mist everything with a setting spray.

    But really, does this look require a costume? We kind of just want to wear it every day.
