Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Are you a procrastinator? I totally can be. I tried to do a little better this year, so I ordered one used Halloween costume from eBay for $8 (I mean you’re probably going to only wear it once and it’s so much better for the environment) and just a few accessories to put together a sailor moon outfit. It went pretty well. I wore it on Saturday night. Maybe you’ve already seen on my Instagram.

But last night, I was invited to a masquerade Halloween party and wasn’t sure what I was going to wear. I put together a look that is somewhat Halloween/scary/Dia de Los Muertos/sugar skull inspired.

Here’s how I created this look with items that I already had around the house. I started with my regular primer and foundation, and used black eyeliner to draw on my nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. I used my BH cosmetics palette for my eyeshadow, a dark blue and purplish pink color to make my eye sockets look deeper than they actually were. Then I added a black wing eye liner, a bunch of sparkly sticker jewels, some glitter to my brows after putting on Benefit’s eyebrow Gimme-Brow and added some fake flowers to my hair with bobby pins. I didn’t have to buy anything for this look. If you don’t have these items laying around the investment would be minimal. I just put on an outfit that color coordinated with the make-up and wallah! There was something I could wear to the Halloween party.

    I love your last-minute costume ideas! I’m a total procrastinator too, so I’m always looking for quick and easy ways to put together a costume. I especially love your Dia de Los Muertos-inspired look – it’s so easy to create with items you already have around the house, and it’s definitely unique. Another great last-minute costume idea is a Money Heist Halloween costume. All you need is a red jumpsuit, a black ski mask, and a Salvador Dali mask. No matter what kind of last-minute Halloween costume you choose, have fun with it! Halloween is a great time to be creative and express yourself.
