It’s T-minus two days until Halloween, and you’re S.O.L. (s**t out of luck) for a costume—perhaps last weekend’s party prematurely obliterated you and your BFF’s rendition of Batman and Robyn. It’s possible that you just avoid the hell that is Halloween-themed pop-up stores, or maybe Saturday night made you realize that wearing 10 pounds of Britney-Oops-I-Did-it-Again extensions is not a mistake you’ll be repeating on October 31st. All is not lost. There are plenty of awe-inspiring things to do that don't require any dressing up. Did you see that Givenchy show? Paint your own mask! Let's face it:
If Jane Birkin taught us anything, it's that stripes look good on everyone. Apply this theory to that beautiful mug of yours and go for a single, across-the-eyes horizontal bar like Emily did for Lady Gaga's Guggenheim bash (a combination of MAC Pigments applied with a Tom Ford brush), or repeat the bar across your lips up for an homage to Queen Bey . Concentrate the color in the center of your face for added 'tude, like Kate Bosworth , give it soft edges like Natasha Poly , or find inspiration from aviation, like Giovanna Battaglia . Paint in solid black, or in glitter . Why stop there? Put glitter on your whole face . When's the last time you wore that acid-yellow eye shadow? . Go for it. Then dress like a glam rocker, and, if anyone asks what you are, tell them you’re an alien rock star from the future or a post-apocalyptic zombie cowgirl . Honestly, who cares? You’ll look super cool, and at the very least no one else will be wearing your costume.
