Halloween is a little over a week away. Do you know what you are going to be? A cat, a nurse, or an army gal are all great costumes, but you also can never go wrong with a little DIY and dressing like your favorite celeb! When choosing to dress as a celebrity you need to be sure to pick one that is easily identifiable. You want people to say “I love your [insert name] costume!”. The last thing you want to hear is “Who are you supposed to be?” Here are seven celebrities that are perfect Halloween costumes and a few tips on how to achieve their look:
Kim Kardashian West
Flawless makeup and perfect raven hair are the obvious components of a Kim Kardashian West costume, but there are two things that are absolute musts. The booty and the iPhone for the perpetual selfie you will be taking all night (don’t forget your duck face).
Bonus: Throw in the most stylish baby doll ever to be baby North West
Love her or hate her, the girl is consistent and very recognizable. A high dramatic ponytail and white go-go boots is all you need for everyone to know that you are Ariana Grande. Throw in a 60’s mod dress for good measure.
Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope
Grab some fabulous outerwear, a pair of wide leg trousers, and as Olivia would say, “It’s handled.” The best part about this costume is that you will not need to look too far to create. Just look at your work wardrobe.
Lana del Rey
What makes Lana del Rey’s look identifiable is her hair and makeup. Part your hair with an extreme side part and curl with a one inch barrel curling iron all over. Top it off with a flower crown. For your makeup the three key components to focus on are the eyebrows, eyes, lips. Pencil in your eyebrows so that they look extra full, do a winged cat-eye look on your eyes, and use a nude lipstick or gloss on your lips. Any boho chic outfit will do to complete the costume.
Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly
You do not need to only dress as modern celebrities. Audrey Hepburn’s classic and iconic look can easily be imitated with a little black dress, a french bun, and the perfect costume jewelry.
