Halloween Inspiration: 11 Easy Costumes That Only Require Makeup


Remember the good old days? Before costumes like "Sexy Pizza Rat" and "Sexy Donald Trump" existed?

For those of us who want to get a little more creative and forego those pricey (and ridiculous) bagged costumes, FNM has found some of the greatest new trends for this spooky season. The best part? Each Halloween look is makeup-based, so no real costumes are required. All you'll need is a makeup kit or facepaint, and you're good to go!

Get your DIY-side ready and try one of these makeup looks this Halloween:

Sugar Skulls

A twist on a classic Day of the Dead tradition. These candy skulls can be decorated any way you like and paired with any black outfit you already have at home.


Pop Art/Comic Book Look

Achieve this pop-art look with a simple color pallet of red, white, blue and black, and look like you walked straight out of a comic book.
