DIY HALLOWEEN HAIR AND MAKEUP IDEAS

DIY HALLOWEEN HAIR AND MAKEUP IDEAS: the Fleek Fairy featured by popular San Francisco style blogger, Just Add Glam

As sad as I am about summer ending, I’m so excited that we are coming up on one of my favorite holidays…Halloween! The past couple of years I’ve been into using makeup and hair products to transform into my costume. It’s also so much easier to get Halloween ready when you usually have the items you need already in your bathroom and makeup bag—or can easily pick them up on your next Target run! I’ve been playing around with Halloween hair and makeup looks for this season and wanted to share two of my favorites with you in this post—a shimmery fairy and a smoky devil.
Both of these looks were very easy to recreate—I’m definitely not a professional hair and makeup artist—so I would recommend continuing to blend your makeup until it feels just right, and continue to backcomb your hair to get the desired volume. If it doesn’t work out right away, wipe it off or brush it out and try again.

And to take it all off at the end of the night, use aSimple Cleansing Facial Wipes (or two!) to wipe it all away.

 

I love how these two Halloween Hair and Makeup looks turned out and I can’t wait for Halloween to get closer! Putting together a costume on the fly is really easy (and stress free!) when using everyday hair and makeup products. And if you don’t have it on hand, you can easily pick up the beauty supplies you need in the Target beauty aisle (don’t forget to scan all of your items with the Cartwheel app!)
