Michelle Phan has believed in makeup since the first time she was allowed to try eyeliner. When she looked in the mirror and saw a transformed version of herself looking back, she fell in love with the sense of confidence that makeup could give her. Ever since she posted her first makeup tutorial on YouTube, she has dedicated herself to inspire millions by using makeup as a tool for transformation and self expression. Now, Michelle has compiled all of her best wisdom into Make Up: Your Life Guide to Beauty, Style, and Success–Online and Off. From creating a gorgeous smoky eye to understanding contouring to developing an online persona, Michelle has advice to help you transform every facet of your life. Make Up is packed with Michelle’s trademark beauty and style tutorials, stories and pictures from her own life, and advice on the topics she is asked about most, including etiquette, career, entrepreneurship, and creativity. From the everyday (how to get glowing skin) to the big picture (how to turn your passion into a profession), Make Up is a practical and empowering resource to help anyone put their best face forward.

5 Quick Costume Ideas

Four more days until Halloween!
Do you have your costume ready? If not, don’t worry we have selected five quick costumes that can be created within the next four days and be ready in time for a great night.

The easiest- a cat

1a09587c94981536fc898ba196036dbe

This can be easily duplicated with black eyeliner. It’d go best with an all black outfit. Cat ears and tail can be found at your local Halloween store or even a dollar store!

A couple idea- burglars

c2f71b65388c4cd46341fa7cec5aab17

This can easily be duplicated with just black and white striped shirts, black gloves, black pants, and black shoes. The mask can be bought or painted on with face paint. A canvas bag will be the icing on the cake with this quick costume.

Simple, yet awesome- Wednesday Adams from the Adams Family

2f4d393b882b4629188b99a86bfb91a1

This costume idea can be duplicated with a black dress, black tights, black eyeliner, and two pigtails.

A classic- witch

68c85d6b4b640769f55e2afe7a410097

Who hasn’t been a witch for Halloween? Well, if you’re in a rush it wouldn’t hurt to be one again. You could even add a twist to this classic. Try a short black dress, striped stockings, black heels, and a large black hat. Add a broom to complete this look.

Cartoon couple- the Fairly Odd Parents Cosmo and Wanda

fairlyoddparents

Channel your inner kid for Halloween with this cute couples costume. Cosmo can be created with a white button up, black tie, and black pants. Wanda can be created with a yellow shirt and black pants. Temporary hair paint can be bought at your local Halloween store to give these costumes a great hair do! Don’t forget some wings, wands, and crowns- all of which can be DIYs found on Pinterest.

These are just some of my favorites. You can find more DIY costumes on Pinterest. I hope you all have a great Halloween!
