This is one of my favorite Halloween DIY looks – and it can be modified to look cute or more scary. For the eyeshadow, try warm-toned reds, purples, and gold. For this particular look, I would use the Naked Heat palette. For the costume, think boho – mixed prints will do the trick! Pair a floral or paisley printed maxi dress or a long skirt with a white off-the-shoulder top. Top it off with layers of gold jewelry and a head wrap.

For this look, I mixed bright blue and purple eyeshadows and glitters with NYX Vivid Brights gold eyeliner to create small stars all over my face. I also used temporary tattoos of moons and stars to enhance the look! For the costume, I wore a galaxy print dress

This is a popular look this Halloween – and just a little eerie. For this look, think pink! I suggest Mac’s satin lipstick in Fashion Tide or St. Germain. For the cracks, use a matte liner such as this one from NYX.

This is a unique beautiful look – and so easy to recreate! Focus on enhancing the eyes with bright gold pops of color while keeping the lip simple with a nude shade! Add some face jewels with a high quality lash glue. Top off the look with a floral headband from Forever 21. Or, better yet, make one yourself with fake flowers from your local craft supply store.
