Halloween Hair and Beauty

Posted on October 31, 2014 by Gordon Beauty Blogger

We’ve been feeling the chills for a few weeks now. And not the cold chills, the spooky chills. It’s finally time to get in the Halloween spirit! No matter how creative, detailed, realistic or creepy your costume is, it is not complete without hair and makeup. Below are five simple ideas that will practically make any costume.

  1. A Geisha: Choose a very light foundation. Choose a dark red lipstick. On your top lip, create the shape of the top of a heart with an intense indent. Use the almost-white foundation to make the lips stick out. Rim the outer corner of your eyes with a thin line of black liner. And finally, darken and define your brows with black shadow or an eye pencil.

  2. Iggy Azalea: She’s famous not only for her music, but her long, blonde hair and sporty look. Slick your hair back into a super high ponytail. Use a fine tooth comb to get all the little flyaways. Apply a small amount of styling gel to your hands and rub them together. Then slick the hair back to create a shiny wet look. Complete the look with winged eyeliner and bright pink lipstick.

  3. 90’s Kid: Bring out the frosty pink lipstick and the glitter eyeliner. Twist random pieces of hair and clip it back with butterfly clips. Don’t under do it on the blush or bronzer.

  4. Pageant Girl: This costume calls for everything to be overdone. That includes perfectly curled ringlets, extra long eyelashes, and rosy cheeks. Make sure there is an even coating of shimmer all over your face and multiple coats of hairspray to keep the curls all night long.

  5. Pippi Longstocking: Keep the eye makeup to a minimum. A coat of mascara and some light pink gloss will do. Unless you were blessed with freckled skin, add some of your own with a brown eye pencil. Add more around the cheek area. Part hair down the middle and secure each side into a low ponytail. Braid each ponytail tightly and fasten the ends with a clear rubber band and some ribbon.

Whatever you decide to be for this festive night, make sure you think of the beauty component. Now is the time to experiment with colors and styles and to have fun.
