Don’t Be Tardy for the {Halloween} Party

The Bad Costume Formula from

I am a procrastinator by nature. But when it comes to Halloween I am all over everything. I plan and ruminate over costume ideas for months in preparation {nerd alert}. This year I’ll admit I was stressed with too many ideas and options {not necessarily a bad thing} but I rallied and finally pulled it all together with a few days to spare. I know the idea of selecting a costume can be daunting, but it should be a good time. Halloween is a total kid’s holiday, therein lies the fun! I know people have been drilling it in your head for years for you to just be yourself. Well not on Halloween! Give yourself a much deserved night off. Use your creativity and think outside the box if you can. As a makeup artist, I look to a variety of sources for inspiration. The silver screen always inspires, maybe it will work for you as well. For those of you who have not yet decided on a Halloween costume, and are in need of last minute ideas and inspiration, here are some suggestions from film and TV.

Have a fantastic weekend and a happy Halloween!
