While browsing the web for Halloween costume ideas, I kept coming across articles that give readers tips on how to dress up like Lady Gaga for the holiday. My favorite of which can be found on Hollywood Life. But, there are hundreds more that use Gaga as an inspiration for Halloween costume ideas, and it’s no wonder. She wears costumes all year long. Who can forget her infamous meat dress or the bird’s nest ensemble she wore at the 2009 MTV Awards?
So it makes me wonder, what shockingly outrageous outfit will Lady Gaga wear on Halloween? Or, maybe Halloween could be the one time of year she shocks us and doesn’t dress up at all.
Halloween is just around the corner and whether you decide to be a Fairy Princess or Sultry Vampire Sephora’s Beauty in a Box sets have got you covered, offering inexpensive makeup collections that will get you the best makeup look for your costume, without breaking the bank. I’ve never been the type to dress up on Halloween, so even though these sets are specific to each spooktacular look, I love that they can all still be used after the holiday to achieve multiple beauty trends. As a great bonus, all of the customized sets come with how-to instructions, so you don’t need to be a professional makeup artist to pull any of these looks off.
I decided to purchase the Sephora Beauty in a Box: Vampire collection ($26). The set contains everything you need to channel your inner Twlight, and includes the following products:
– False Lashes
– Colorful Mono Eyeshadow in Rock n’ Roll Never Dies
– Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner in Red
– Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Red
– Nano Eyeliner in Midnight Black
With the instructions spread out over my sink, I easily applied the false eyelashes, eyeliner and eye shadow, all of which can also be used post-Halloween for a dramatic night-time look (think Kim Kardashian).
It took no more than ten minutes, and before I knew it, I was transformed into a seductive vampire (minus the fangs).
The eyelashes are quite long, so if you do wear them sans costume for a night out on the town, do trim them and apply a few coats of mascara, so they blend in with your natural lashes.
And remember, red lips never go out of style. The red Ultra Shine lip gloss included in the Vampire kit is the perfect shade for all skin tones.
After Halloween, wear it alone or over lipstick, but tone down the eye makeup and opt for neutral eye shadow tones instead.
The Sephora Beauty in a Box kits come in other frightful sets including Devil, Peackock, Get Sexy, Vegas Showgirl, and Make Up Tricks & Treats.
If you follow the simple instructions included with each kit, I guarantee your makeup will look scary…in a good way.
