Last Minute Halloween Ideas


Happy Halloween everyone! Whether you're heading out partying or staying in with a scary film and trick or treaters at the door (or even taking your little brother trick or treating like I apparently am) there's a chance that you might have left things a little bit last minute. If that's the case you're probably not going to be able to whip up a killer zombie nurse last minute but there's a few Halloween looks that I've found on YouTube that you can recreate with the contents of your makeup bag.

I decided to go for the stretched smile effect which is creepy but simple and which can be worn with your normal clothes, ultimate lack of effort here. I loosely followed this tutorial, but go ahead and change it up depending on what tools/time you have available to you. You could also be a ventriloquist's dummy or a creepy doll and again these are all makeup based costumes that can be teamed with whatever clothes you already have in your wardrobe. Now go forth and terrify small children!


  1. Love the look! Happy Halloween Xx

  2. Thats so freaky! But freaky in a good way for Halloween. Hope you had a good night x
