We’ve got a master list of versatile makeovers that are SCARY good. Read on to find out how you can go from professional to party faster than you can say, “avada kedavra”.

Next-Level Normal

Jazzing up your everyday look is as easy as swapping out your color palette! Making a Halloween full-face “practical” is practically what you already do. Just trade black for brown and nude for orange or purple (or both)! Implementing festive colors to your daily routine takes your look to the next level without any extra time or effort! Don’t be afraid to step out of your clear-gloss-and-beige-eyeshadow comfort zone.

Adding in a little liquid liner spider web or bat is the perfect delicate touch. For a spEYEder web, wing your eyeliner like you normally would, extending the tail longer. Then draw a few more lines fanning outward and connect vertically along the spaces. For bats, channel your inner-childhood days when drawing a bird only took a single stroke in the shape of a knocked over “3”. Now do the same with eyeliner on eyes, lips, or anywhere!

Candy Corn:

Hey girly girl! Go more “cutsie” with candy corn or pumpkins. Between bright eyeshadow and vibrant face paint, you’ve got plenty to work with! Start small with not-so-perfect circles, or little elongated triangles. You got it!

We love a good Halloweekend…except when Halloweekend is actually Halloweekday! Don’t let a busy work week or a holiday surrounded by school days interrupt a night of dancing, friends, and spooks. Why not turn your morning routine into a two-in-one school/work to Halloween look? Clock out and head out to a night to a remember! It’s no “challenge accepted”. It’s a challenge accomplished!
