The Masquerade Mask

This beautiful mask is one that doesn’t cover your face but adds a decorative flair to accentuate your eyes. With the jewels and swirls, you have a look every girl dreams about. This classic Masquerade mask can be paired with a dress from the early 1900s for a Venetian look or can simply be your “costume” with a black shirt, jeans, and some accessories.

Cute Cat

Meow! There is something so sexy about a cat costume. A sexy leotard and tights are always great choices. But, even if you have no interest in dressing from the neck down, you can pull this look off. Do the makeup, grab a headband, and throw on a solid neutral colored outfit. Ta da!

Mermaid

Every girl wants to be a mermaid. Just look at the trend of mermaid hair! The idea that magic is possible and real is what makes Halloween fun. There is no other day of the year when you can cover yourself in glitter and use your teal eye shadow with your purple lipstick. Dive in!

Spider-Girl

Superheroes are cool no matter what your gender! When you’re talking heroes and comics, you can’t possibly forget Spiderman. This pin shows a great tutorial on becoming Spider girl. What’s great is Spider girl can be as sexy or as understated as you want. Be careful, though, you might have guys falling in love at first sight. What’s better than a girl who loves superheroes and comics?

Aphrodite

This Aphrodite makeup is surreal and definitely suits the goddess who was known for her stunning beauty. This look is simple enough to be done easily at home but just intricate enough to be a standalone costume (meaning, throw on a simple dress and let your hair air dry).

Forest Creature

This, like a cat costume, can be the makeup alone. Wear a solid brown outfit and create a woodland creature’s face for amazing and ethereal results. Super cute!

Indian Girl

If you have long, dark hair then this is a simple look that you can do without much forethought or planning. Two long, straight braids, a Native American headband (most beaded headbands would work fine) and finish with natural, simple, sexy makeup. You will be as dazzling as Pocahontas.

Feeling inspired yet? I hope so because I sure am writing this. Gotta love Pinterest! Even if you aren’t sure about copying one of these looks exactly, you can draw from the idea and make it your own. By choosing your costume theme and incorporating some great makeup, you can make this Halloween costume one everyone will be talking about.
