Five Non-Scary Halloween Makeup Ideas

Halloween is one of the most fun days of the year, but the weeks leading up to it can be very stressful. I'm always either still scrambling to think of a genius costume idea, or I'm struggling with how to make that idea come to life.

Do I take the easy and dull route and buy the same unnecessarily revealing costume that a million other girls will have, or do I get creative with a DIY costume that will most likely end in disaster (like that Halloween I decided to create a shark fin head piece out of Styrofoam)?

What I've come to find is that the only way to ensure simplicity and individuality (as well as sanity), is to just focus on the makeup. If you look like the character you're trying to emulate, your outfit doesn't have to be so elaborate.

Capitol Citizen

This Halloween, I'll be playing a drinking game called "Count the Katniss Everdeens." While perhaps not as endearing, the Capitol citizens from The Hunger Games are much more fun to emulate. All you need is a vibrant eye shadow and lipstick, crazy lashes and a little creativity.
