CLUELESS

Clueless Cher and Dion Highschool Halloween Costumes

It’s the 25th anniversary of the hit 90’s movie Clueless this year so it’s no wonder lead characters Cher and Dionne are the trendiest costumes for Highschool right now.

The preppy school girl look is in this season so you should have no problem finding this exact outfit in Forever 21.

A post shared by Veronica Giguere (@voicesbyveronica) on

This is so easy yet funny as heck and perfect for getting dates. We’ll tell you how, but first…

What you’ll need:

  • a bag of lemons
  • a name tag, cardboard sign or ratty t shirt
  • a sharpie or black marker

Just write “Life” on a name tag or a t shirt (it could be extra ratty for added effect) and get a bag of lemons.

Bring a sharpie to write your phone number on the lemons in case you meet someone cute and ask them if they would be your lemonade. How could they say no?

This outfit is great for both guys and girls and probably the easiest on this list for last minute.

Sexy Cat Easy Last Minute DIY Halloween Costume Make up

Cool Cat- Pinterest

A cat has ALWAYS been the favorite default sexy Halloween costume (we keep a pair of emergency leopard cat ears in our closets).

This is another pun because it makes people think of the other name for a cat that starts with a “P”.

If you have a group of friends, you can all dress up as cats and call yourselves the Pussy Posse.

It’s so easy to execute beautifully.  Start out with killer eyeliner and your best mascara (ours is $4.99) or falsies, then color the bottom of your nose and your top lip with black eye liner, add some freckles or some whiskers, and make shift ears and you’re done! You can wear leopard or black, you can even put on a collar.

If you don’t have cat ears don’t fret, you can make them with your hair or cut some out from black construction paper and tape it to a headband.

CAT COUPLES COSTUME IDEA: Cat and mouse, one dog and one cat, or Batman and Cat woman would all be clever ideas for couples.

GROUP COSTUME IDEA: For groups try a Pussy Posse!

Devil

You can use the same hair technique above to make an easy but super hot devil.

Just use some black eyeliner to smoke out your eyes and fill in your lips as thick as you’d like. Spray your two hair horns with red hair spray and add black nails to complete the look.

Couples Costume Idea:

Have one dress up as an angel and one as a devil for a couples costume idea.

Maleficent

DIY Maleficent Costume

Since the movie came out, Maleficent has become a majestic figure of female power and, since Angelina Jolie portrayed her, very alluring.

We like the costume because it’s DIY yet looks professional and it can work for two people.

For Halloween 2020, one of us is going to be young Maleficent pre wing removal and the other is going to be her darker character.

This version requires paint and takes a little more effort but uses only a few supplies.

What you’ll need:

  • a headband
  • a wire hanger
  • 2 plastic or paper cups
  • foil
  • masking tape for fairy Maleficent or black electrical tape for evil Maleficient
  • black or brown paint

Just follow the pictorial, tape the foil to the cups, then paint and you have horns.

Flip a section of your hair in between the horns and pin the sides back to cover the headband (like in the pic). Wear a black flowy outfit with boots, add red lipstick and you’re done!

Couple Costume Idea

You can make this a romantic couple costume idea by dressing up as Maleficent and Diavel her pet crow. Just dress up the boyfriend in a black shirt and pants.

For besties one can dress up as dark Maleficent and the other as the fairy Maleficent, or Aurora!

Unicorn Costumes

Unicorns have a peacocking effect in a large crowd, the bright colors and glitter really stand out and puts people in an ethereal headspace.

You definitely won’t need a lot of headgear to make a beautiful unicorn. You can make a DIY Unicorn horn with a headband, paper and/or hair.

For the rest of the costume, wear a white fitted shirt with white or brightcolored tights and some yarn or hair extensions for the tail (anything fuzzy will work). Top it all off with sparkles and bright make up!

If the hair do is too tough for you, just make an easy paper cone (color it if you’d like), tape it, roll it in glitter and tape ribbons or strings on both sides so you can tie it to your head.

Couples Costume Idea

Unicorn and Merlin the magician.

Comic Book Character Make Up Costumes

We’re big comic book fans so whenever we see someone with this make up, we always get excited. It also works great for couples or groups.

What you’ll need:

  • Black eyeliner
  • Colored eyeshadow (the brightest color you have)
  • Lipstick
  • Optional: White face paint, white eye shadow, or a white eye pencil (if you want to do a dot style)

Atleast one of our friends does this costume idea every year and it always looks amazing.

If you’re using white eyeshadow for dots then be sure to dampen the brush to make them pop.

Quick tip: To soften an eye liner pencil, hold it over a candle for a few seconds (NOT MINUTES, Be Careful).

Black Widow Costume Make Up

There’s nothing scarier to us than spiders, so why not be the queen?

Black Widow spiders are appropriately named because the females eat their male partners after mating! If you’re a man eater, or want to dress up as one, then you can easily pull this off.

This is another costume idea that just requires an eye liner and maybe some grey eyeshadow. You can do spiderweb eyes or all out spider eyes.

If your drawing skills are severely limited you can just draw some little spiders on your face or glue little plastic dollar store ones with eye lash adhesive. We did this to a friend with a really pretty smokey eye and she looked amazing.

Couples Costume Idea:

For a couple this would also make a funny costume since we all know the fate of the male. Just make sure one of you is wearing a red black widow symbol on your belly.

Creepy Stitched Doll/ Zombie Costume Make up

Creepy Stitched Doll or Zombie…the choice is yours.

If you’re super shy or a bit of a wall flower then people will think the eerie silence is part of your costume.

They won’t expect you to speak much but will definitely take notice.

All you need is a cute dress, killer lashes, a black liner pencil, and your best smokey eye.

Vampire Costume Make Up

Thanks to all the vampire movies and t.v. shows, there are sooo many different types of vampire costumes you can do.

You don’t need fake teeth to be a vampire.

You can paint them on your lips with a white eyeliner pencil or make up paint. Be sure to line your lips with black eyeliner for a more 3D effect. Make sure to draw the teeth spread apart so if you eat or drink it won’t smudge as much.

If you want to skip the teeth altogether then just cover yourself with shimmer and call yourself a Twilight vampire or put two red bite marks on your neck to be a vampire in transition. There are a lot of easy ways to play this up beautifully.

Couples or Friends Costume Idea

You could both be Vampires ofcourse or one of you could be the victim with two bite holes. One also could be a vampire hunter. Just make sure you have a stake or crucifix.

Giraffe Costume Make Up

We heard a couple dressed as giraffes won a Halloween costume this past weekend at a bar event, it’s worth a try and so adorkable.

  • Tape some giraffe ears made out of construction paper to a headband
  • Wrap your hair in two little buns on top of your head
  • Draw some brown giraffe spots around your forehead with liner or eye shadow
  • Wear brown or beige clothing.

Clown (IT) and Joker Costume Make Up

With Stephen King’s IT reboot, the Joker, and Suicide Squad movies it’s no surprise that clowns and jokers are one of the trendiest make up looks for Halloween not to mention the hottest.

A smokey eye and red lipstick is all an IT clown look takes, making it a perfect last minute make up choice that looks professional.

Not good with a smokey eye? Just use black eyeliner! It’s quick, fool proof, but will make you look hot.

Add glitter, rhinestones, or metallics to glam up your look. Pig tails work well too.
