With Halloween only a few days away, it’s time to stop thinking about the kids and finally focus on halloween costumes for adults. It’s really not that big of a deal for parents, considering most of the store-bought costumes are a bit, well, inappropriate for mommy, and you probably didn’t have time to hand-make attire for everyone in the household anyway.
So if you’re looking for easy halloween costumes for adults, we found the perfect idea that you can use all year long and even next Halloween!
All you have to do is head to your nearest Sephora and pick up their Sephora Beauty in a Box kit, containing all of the make up and step-by-step tutorials you’ll need to create dramatic looks for Halloween. There are two kits: Make Up Tricks & Treats ($42, above) and Vampire ($26, below).
An Editorial Assistant at Allure Magazine tested the kits out (including more last-minute makeup kits) and found both to have incredibly quick and easy halloween costume ideas, but she needed to dig into her own makeup bag to finish the looks in the Tricks & Treats package. The Vampire, on the other hand, had everything she needed for both Halloween and a more toned-down everyday look.
Here you can see the EA, Sophia Panych, with Sephora Tricks & Treats “Fairy” on the left and Vampire on the right.
After you have your face and hair done, the wardrobe is easy to wing. Grab some fangs for the Vampire and wings for the Fairy, and there you go: super easy halloween costumes that you’ll continue to use.
