5 Halloween Costumes You Can Do With Just Makeup

SEO UPDATE: Makeup-Only Halloween Costume Ideas

There's two types of people in the world: Those who start planning their Halloween costumes in August, and those who figure out they're wearing 15 minutes before the party starts.

If you fall into the latter category, you can get a little more creative this year by trying one of these makeup-only costumes, instead of drawing on a few whiskers and saying you're a cat.

Even better is that these costumes will cost you zero coin. All you need to transform yourself into Marie Antoinette, like Demi Lovato, or a pop art comic book character is the stash of makeup products you already own.

If you do not have any plastic snakes around, fear not. You'll still get the point of your costume across with the green scales you're going to paint all over your face. Makeup by beauty vlogger Giselle Cortes paired the scales with a green and gold smoky eye and matte black lipstick in her seven minute tutorial. If you really want to take the look to the next level, finish it off with green contacts like she did.


There's nothing scary about this scarecrow makeup look Jaclyn Hill created in collaboration with her Morphe collection. In fact, it is one of the cutest Halloween makeup looks we've see, thus far — and it's ridiculously easy, too. Even if you're new to wearing makeup, you'll be able to keep up with Hill in her seven minute tutorial.


Stand out from the dozen cats that'll inevitably be at your Halloween party by going as a deer. Beauty vlogger Claudia Sulewski's makeup tutorial isn't just a simple to do if you're not a professional makeup artist, she's also demonstrated a way to use that flower crown you wore to a music festival this summer.


The fact that J.o's dressed up as a skeleton is proof that you can't go wrong with a classic costume. Achieve a similar look by following the steps in beauty vlogger Roxxsaurus by Roxi's half skull skeleton makeup tutorial. Wear your favorite all-black outfit to complete the look.

Pop Art Comic Book Character

Take a page out of your favorite comic book by turning yourself into one of its characters. This pop art-inspired Halloween makeup by beauty vlogger Sonia Castaneda was created with some of the products she uses for her everyday looks. Even though it looks impressive, it's not tough to do. Aside from a cat-eye, red lipstick, and outlining some of your features with black eyeliner, all you have to do is dot your face with some white eyeliner.
