It’s our favorite time of year again! Halloween can be endless fun if you’ve got the time and are willing to exert the effort to create a phenomenal Halloween costume. We’ve got some creative ideas for your Halloween 2017, and they might not be what you were expecting…
This year has certainly seen its fair share of makeup trends. From mermaid glitter to squiggly eyebrows, we’ve come up with a few ways that you can use this year’s trends for your Halloween costume!
From Trend to Halloween Costume
"With every fall of the sun and rise of the moon, I hear it" 🌟💫☄️ – inspired by @tephadoll // @xtraesha !! – #katvond lock it foundation #anastasiabeverlyhills brow wiz in chocolate // brow gel in auburn #benefit gimme brow #tarte park avenue princess #urbandecay vice 4 palette #nars goulue blush #limecrime new americana velvetine #maccosmetics ess-presso #nyx white liquid liner #beccacosmetics opal shimmering skin perfector
One of the makeup trends we loved this year was the snake lips and eyes. People drew snakes that looked like they were wrapping around either the eyebrow or the lips. We think this look can spice up the classic Medusa to create a tantalizing image to draw in your prey!
Glam Tin Man
We’re sure you saw all of those makeup challenges on YouTube where artists would makeup their entire face using only highlighters. It created a glamorous, but very shiny, look that we think can really up your Tin Man game. Give it a try!
Under the Sea Sparkle
It’s time to sell your voice and tail to a sea-witch because this year’s mermaid trend really has us wanting to look this way every day. You can create your own crown and command the waves, or use a lot of sequins and glitter for a shimmery look to brighten your Halloween night!
Dewey River Nymph
Eyes and words are so icy, oh but she burns like rum on the fire. 💙 @ofracosmetics x @kkimthai Wanderlush Moisturizer @revlon Colorstay Foundation @makeupforeverus @makeupforeverofficial Ultra HD Concealer @elfcosmetics HD Undereye Setting Powder @maccosmetics Moons of Saturn Face Kit from the James Kaliardos Collection #eyes @sugarpill Feline Fancy Eyeshadow Palette @benefitcosmetics Roller Lash Mascara #highlight @lashesbylena Lemonade Highlighter Palette #lips @maybelline Lip Studio Shine Shot Topcoat #brows @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow in Ebony + #benefitcosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil & Ready, Set, Brow!
One of the prettier trends this year was the shiny lips and eyes. Pair these with a flowy gown and some flowers in your hair and you’re ready to star in your own Greek myth!
Speed Bikes and Bright Lights
If you’re a little more into science fiction than mythology, give this neat trend a try. Line your eyes in different colors and pair with a bodysuit and a bike to create your perfect Tron-inspired costume!
If you ever had a crush on Legolas as a child, we understand. Make your elf costume a little more ethereal and mythical by using this year’s weird trend of feather eyebrows.
A True Artist
"Starry, starry night Paint your palette blue and gray Look out on a summer's day With eyes that know the darkness in my soul" 😔 . Vincent Van Gogh. This artist means so much to me since I was a child. ~~~ PRODUCT LIST Starry night – @beautyforreal In the navy eye pencil as base▫Monaco watercolors ▫@concreteminerals Domino, Bruise, Fame eyeshadows▫Eyeliner: @beautyforreal black magic▫Waterline: @ofracosmeticsisrael white rabbit, @concreteminerals Fame,Domino▫Mascara: @beautyforreal Just black▫False lashes: Unbranded▫Eyebrow: Morphe eyeshadow
One of the more difficult trends of the year has been art-lids. If you’ve got a knack for painting in tiny spaces, give your favorite artist a tribute by both dressing up like them and painting one of their most famous pieces on your eyelids!
