Man, forget those little plastic Halloween jack-o’-lanterns. When I was a kid, I used pillowcases for trick-or-treating, and I filled them to the brim.

I’d walk around the neighborhood with ’em swung over my shoulder like I was a candy bandit. It was awesome…

Halloween is coming! It’s my favorite holiday, but I really haven’t gone big for a few years.

You know — life, getting older, not as many friends who live close by. I usually still do something at the last-minute, though.

A few years ago, El Hub and I went to a Halloween party on a WWII aircraft carrier and danced the night away listening to a live band in the old mess hall. The jets were even decorated, and you could sit in them if you wanted to. This adorable old veteran dude helped me into the cockpit and flirted with me a little bit. He must have been about 80.

There was a haunted house in the belly of the ship. You had to navigate down a flight of rickety metal stairs into a dark, cramped hallway to the actual surgical bay of the ship. Now THAT was creepy.

This will be Connor’s very first Halloween. I’m not sure what we’re gonna do yet, but I don’t think there will be any aircraft carriers involved…

Target is doing this thing where they’re featuring a couple of different doable makeup and hair looks. One’s a fairy look and the other’s a devil. I picked the fairy look because it reminded me of a moon child look from nocturn_elle on Instagram. I liked the silver crescent moon and her dark lips, and I thought I’d also be able to do something with my long hair.

It’s almost Halloween! If you haven’t figured out what you’re going to be yet and could use a little inspiration, this is the place to be. Below you’ll see a fun Halloween look that can be created with some of your favorite brands like Simple®, POND’S®, Q-tips®, TRESemmé® and Suave®, all available in the beauty and personal care aisles at Target. #GetHalloweenReady #Target

I needed a few things to complete my look, so I headed to Target for Q-tips®, hairspray and another bottle of makeup remover.

The look is super easy, as you can tell. I actually started with the makeup I was already wearing using a single shade of matte eyeshadow, and then I added a dark blue lip and threw on some falsies because…Halloween.

For my crescent moon, I used a shiny silver liner, then wet brush to dab some silver glitter on top. And then the same thing for the stars, except with gold liner and glitter.

Then I soaked a Q-Tip with Simple® Dual Effect Eye Makeup Remover to clean up the edges.

Actually, before that I cleaned up the edges of my blue lipstick with a Q-Tip.

For my hair, I did mini ponytails down the center of the back of my head and twisted each one into a bun, then sprayed them into place with TRESemmé® Two Extra Hold Hairspray. It took less than five minutes.

It’s all about the glitter and liner and doing something easy with the hair.

It’s not the most elaborate costume in the world, but it’s something! You can do a lot of easy Halloween looks with liner, glitter and the beauty aisle at Target.

What are you doing for Halloween?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    I like your mini-buns and that blue lipstick is so cool. Plus it makes your teeth look dazzlingly white. 🙂 I’m going to be a sloth this year. How’s that for lazy? One of the boys is a huge sloth fan so I’m sure he’ll get a lot of use from the costume. That was one of the deciding factors.

      LOL, that cracked me up! It looks really warm, too, which is a plus. Will you be doing any special makeup?

      • Kim says:

        I know, right?! Last year I was the Tootsie Pop Owl and that thing was so warm, I almost got heat stroke. This year, I looked for comfy and hooded (yet still warm). HAHA! I was thinking of finally trying some false lashes, just for fun. And probably something resembling “sloth eyes” for when the hood inevitably comes off. 🙂 Have you decided on something for Connor yet? They have so many adorable baby costumes!

        • Karen says:

          She’s dressing up as a monkey this year! The costume has a pair of striped tights, and last week, when I was out for the evening with a friend, El Hub was in charge of getting Connor dressed and ready for bed. I got home late that night and checked in on her and found that he had put on her Halloween tights underneath a long-sleeved onesie… LOL! She looked like a WWE wrestler!

          I think for your sloth eyes makeup you should do a full-on black smoky eye!
