6 Easy (and Cool) Halloween Makeup Looks Even Beginners Can Pull Off

This week is Beauty Week at HBFIT and we are SO excited to be content-swapping with the babes over at Byrdie Beauty for #HBFITxByrdie. Byrdie, part of the uber chic posse that brought you Who What Wear and My Domaine, is one of our favorite resources for all things beauty. The Byrdie team will be sharing beauty tips and tricks, how you can elevate your fall pumpkin obsession even more, and giving us inside access to their own editorial team’s go-tos all week. We can’t wait to show you what they have to say…

Halloween is right around the corner—T minus 4 days exactly, but who’s counting?—and while some of you may have had your costumes ready since, like yesterday, others might need a little (or a lot of) inspiration. For those in the latter category: allow us to help. While all of us wish we could pull off our costume Heidi Klum style, the reality is that in most cases, it’s a last-minute scramble to throw something together with things we already own. Luckily, you won’t need much for the costumes ahead—instead, let your makeup do the talking. Who needs a costume when you’ve got eyeliner?

David Bowie

Our editor created this iconic Ziggy Stardust look using only drugstore products, for real.


Snapchat Deer Filter

Chances are high you will see Snapchat filter costumes aplenty this Halloween. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t partake. How cute is this deer? Click here to see how to pull off the look.


Snow White

Leave it to vlogger Kandy Johnson to create this bewitching Snow White makeup look.



To really pull off a look worthy of the Queen of the Nile, we suggest loading up on some gold accessories. But if all else fails, some thick kohl liner (we suggest Stila’s Kajal Eye Liner, $18), turquoise shadow, and gold glitter should do the trick. We love this mesmerizing look from vlogger MsRoshPosh.



This look is so cute that we’d be tempted to rock the faux freckles during the day, too. Follow the step-by-steps here.



When all else fails, pull out the cat ears, draw some whiskers, and call it a day.
