There are two types of people in the world: those that start to get ready for Halloween at the end of August, coming up with their idea, grabbing everything they need to execute and totally killing the costume game.

And then there are the other people who literally try to come up with the whole plan the night before in a mix of panic and worry.

Well, for those of you in the second half, there’s no need to worry anymore because makeup only costumes are KILLING it.

You do still have to use a lot of creativity in order to pull off a Halloween look that doesn’t rely on costumes, but thankfully there is a lot of inspiration to pull from.
