Want to be your favorite celebrity this Halloween? With these simple tips, you can be! See below for our tips on cost-effective celebrity Halloween costume ideas. You can use items that you already have in your makeup bag and we’ve also suggested some of our favorite go-to products.
Electric Bolt Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga’s signature electric bolt is a cheap and easy Halloween costume to copy! Of course, you need a long blonde wig with bangs. Search for catwoman costumes to find a black, leather bodysuit to pair with your wig to get the full Gaga effect. They key to this look is the makeup! To get Lady Gaga’s electric bolt, use a black eye liner to draw lines on top and under right eye. Fill in with a sparkly black shadow. Try Makeup Forever’s Aqua Eyes in Mat Black and Chanel’s Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Shadow in Mirifique.
Teen Age Dream Katy Perry
Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream look is a popular celebrity Halloween costume that has been around for some time. There are several websites that offer her the seductive cupcake bra top she wore in her video. Katy Perry’s eye makeup was done with glitter. Lots and lots of glitter! Make your eyes twinkle like Katy Perry with glitter and a pink/silvery eye shadow. Mix two tones to get this purpley-pink eye look. Opt for MAC‘s Pigment in Fuschia and Violet.
Lucious Lipped Rihanna
I can pretty much guarantee there will be lots of Rihanna Halloween costumes this year. She’s always edgy, daring with makeup and changes her hair on a regular basis. So, this one will be interesting because there are so many Rihanna costume ideas to play around with. My favorite is the red wig updo with red lips. To get your lips to stop traffic like Rihanna, choose a bold hue. NARS’s Jungle Red has a creamy shiny texture.
Miley Cyrus Rock N Roll Chic
Miley Cyrus’ rock N roll inspired new look can be achieved with a short blonde wig. You can cut the hair with an electronic shaver by shaving one side and blending the wig so that it matches her punk look. Miley has been wearing lots of daring outfits lately to match her hair style, but an easy and current Miley costume is a black bustier top and a long blue skirt, like she wore on the Tonight Show. Her makeup can be copied by putting false lashes on the top AND bottom. Andrea Modlash‘s Strip Lashes are great. Make sure to trim the ones for the bottom!
Always a head turner, Nicki Minaj is a great Halloween costume idea. This is another one that I suspect will be all over the streets this Halloween, with various different looks. My favorite is her green wig with bangs and matching green eye makeup look. Niki Minaj’s eye look can be achieve by applying NYX Shimmer eye shadow in lime green heavily on the upper lid and slightly under the lash line.
