Halloween is just around the corner and if you're like me, you're a wait-to-the-last-minute, how can I pull something together with minimal effort, kind of a person. The good news is, you don't have to run all over town to create an intricate, creative costume in order to feel as though you've pulled off a Halloween look. All you have to do is grab your makeup bag, your brushes, maybe a few makeup remover wipes (just in case), and a mirror and get to work to create these lazy, last-minute Halloween makeup ideas.
Full disclosure: I'm not so handy with the makeup. The fact of the matter is that I was never the girl who played around with makeup and then just wiped it all off when I was done, or watched makeup tutorial after makeup tutorial to dissect a particular technique. I just didn't have the patience for it — or the time. These relatively easy Halloween makeup tutorials, however, I feel like I could actually do without having to spend weeks practicing the look or hiring a professional makeup artist or enlisting a talented friend to help. Most of them can be done entirely with the products you probably already have at your disposal or only require you to pick up a couple of things in order to get the job done. They're fun and festive without requiring much effort or investment. If you're going to do a makeup look like one of these, Halloween's the time to make it happen.
