13 Lazy-Girl Halloween Costumes That Only Require Face Paint
OK, so there's just about a week left to shop for a Halloween costume. Calm down, because we've collected 13 cute, easy costumes that will make you the life of the party no matter how dressed up everyone else is. And don't fret — for many of these looks, all you need is a black eyeliner pencil and a little attitude.
Hear Me Roar
Feed your feline frenzy with this easy-to-do tiger face paint.
You'll look like you stepped right out of The Lion King with this fun face paint.
Part cute and part creepy, this classic Halloween costume is probably one of the easiest ones in the world to pull off.
Channel your inner David Bowie and use up all your blush with this easy Ziggy Stardust interpretation. Stencil a circle using the bottom of any round canister to get it just right.
Anyone can drench themselves in green paint to become Frankenstein, but going blue is a little more unexpected for Halloween. But you'll have to decide: Smurf or Blue Man Group?
This zombie-girl costume is easy to re-create using too-light face powder. Just smudge your eyeliner to accentuate undead dark circles, and smear your lipstick to get the flesh-eating look.
Become a forest-dwelling creature with the help of beach spray, a few precariously placed Fall leaves, and glitter.
For this one, you can either trace a dinosaur (or alligator, snake, etc.), or have someone with a little drawing skill do the placement. Whatever the case, it's a roaring good time.
Picas-Say It Ain't So
Monochrome face paint and a few interesting lines will make you look just like something out of Picasso's oeuvre.
Museum of Modern Makeup
Add some Jackson Pollock splatter, and suddenly you're a living representation of midcentury artistic styles.
You Van Gough, Girl
It'll be a starry night indeed if you sweep on some pastel shades and swirl up your face.
You can be half-human, half-dead, half-mutated, etc. Easy, and any color combination will work.
Using whatever color face paint or eye shadow you have lying around to make a "mask" may seem like the laziest costume possible, but with a few skillful strokes, it can become a piece of art.
