Picture this: You're old (I'm looking at you, upperclassmen), you're broke (@ every college student ever) and it's the day of Halloween. No costume? No problem! Makeup can be a great and easy way to create a perfectly spooky Halloween look while using products and pieces you already own. Before we jump in, a slight disclaimer: I am in no way a beauty guru; in fact, I'm practically the opposite (as in, I need my roommate to do my eyeshadow for me whenever we go out). So, these makeup looks will definitely air on the simplistic side, which is good in a time crunch and on a budget. So, without further ado, here are three simple but fun Halloween makeup looks that should have you covered for all of Halloweekend. Vampire No fake blood required (although bonus points if you happen to have some lying around). Being a vampire is a perfect last-minute costume, because it can be done completely with makeup. Since you want to look like you're dead, contour your cheeks, nose and forehead lightly with a gray eyeshadow; this will deepen your cheekbones and give you that sallow, haunted look. For the eyes, place a deep red or maroon shade in your crease and blend it out to create a bruised look. Then, add black eyeshadow to your lid and blend that out to the corner, as well. Make sure to blend the two shades, but don't make it too perfect; we're going for dead vampire, not perfectly polished beauty queen. Add the maroon shade to your bottom lash line and extend it almost to your cheek. This will really emphasize the bruised look. Also, add the black eyeshadow to your bottom lash line and smoke it out. If you want to get really fancy, draw deep red and blue veins extending from the bottom of your eye onto the tops of your cheek. For this part, you can use either eye shadow and a tiny brush or a colored liquid eyeliner. Finally, lips. I would go for a deep, dark red to keep with the vampire theme. If you want to add fake blood and fangs, go for it! But, if you're like me and refuse to purchase anything for Halloween this year, this makeup look will allow you to become the vampire of your dreams (or maybe more accurately, nightmares). Throw on an all-black outfit and you're good to go! Clown A professional makeup artist is giving Halloween makeup ideas just in time for the spookiest day of the year. Ally Kara from Creative Karacters says some makeup looks can be simple - like a lighter base on the face, eyeshadow and black lipstick for a character like Wednesday Addams. She says for other looks, like a Frankenstein-inspired look, she used green paint on one half of her face and drew in stitching with red paint to make the face look three-dimensional. Kara also says colored contacts can enhance your Halloween look, and also recommends shadowing and highlighting parts of your face. For a makeup look for the Hulk, Kara recommends using a dark shadow to deepen the cheekbones and eyebrows to create a more menacing look. She also says that eyeshadow can be used as blush, especially for a princess look. To enhance it, Kara recommends adding jewels to your face.
