Halloween is a chance for you to break out of your normal routine, experiment with makeup, and embrace your inner dark side — especially if that dark side consists of copious amounts of black eyeliner and dark lipstick. Whether you're a makeup guru or not, experimenting with your makeup for your Halloween costumes can be fun and add an extra boost of intensity to your costumes. Luckily, you don't have to be an artist or a makeup expert to achieve a last minute costume with only lipstick and eyeliner. These costume ideas are all as beautiful as they are creative, but the good news is, anyone can make them work and all you really need is some black eyeliner and your favorite shade of lipstick.
Now, before you get carried away, you'll probably want to wear clothes along with your eyeliner and lipstick. But the premise of these costumes is that the makeup is the centerpiece, making the clothes (which are usually the focal point of most costumes) a secondary and frankly, less important aspect. For most of them, you could get away with wearing black leggings and a t-shirt and you'd still get your point across.
Whether you're hoping for an edgy, spooky costume this year or just want to up your face-game, these makeup inspired costumes should give you just the inspiration you need.
