U Look: Ready for Halloween

Jenna WillardComment

This week I wanted to show you guys how to create a simple, dark smokey eye that could be used for any type of Halloween costume.  


Anyone that knows me knows how much I love holidays and decorating. My college roommate and I used to decorate our dorm rooms for all of the seasons; we hosted pumpkin carving parties and costume parties too! Needless to say, I’m always in the holiday sprit.

I usually spend a lot of time planning out my Halloween outfit and tend to make my own costumes. One year my friend and I were “cereal killers.” We cut out cereal boxes and added them to the shirts we made that said, “partners in crime.” Another year I was a football player; I turned a men’s jersey into a girly glammed up one with rhinestones and ribbons.

Regardless of how much planning I do for my Halloween costume, something always seems to come up last minute: a friend’s party, and invitation to go downtown, or some type of Halloween event. This week’s U Look was truly inspired by what you can do to create a simple and easy last minute costume like I’ve done over the years.

I created a pirate look by adding some fun makeup and accessories, and I made this Halloween costume in less than 30 minutes. As you can see in the video, the makeup is a very simple smokey eye, but I added some detail to it with glitter, I put on some Temp Tats, and added a little Color Play. For the outfit, I took a cheap skull bandana from Party City and turned it into a headband and belt. I chose clothes right from my closet, I paired a simple red t-shirt with a black and white striped skirt, and to complete the look, added some black high heel boots!
