Best New Halloween Costume Ideas
Stand out at a party with one of these hip, and easy-to-do, costumes and Halloween makeup looks
A BridezillaThis costume is ideal for anyone with a wedding dress they'd like to wear again. (No wedding dress? You could dig up an old bridesmaid dress and be a "bridesmaidzilla.") The idea is a bride gone crazy, so be sure to make unreasonable demands on everyone all night (well, unless you want be invited to next year's party!).
For the makeup, start by applying traditional wedding-day makeup. Think bright pink blush (but apply way too much) and a nude/pink lip. Karsten recommends applying a ton of lip gloss so you look overdone (Try mark Shine Tubes Hook Up Lip Gloss, $5.50, it's small enough to keep with you to reapply all night).
For your eyes, create a smoky eye (to make you look a bit evil) with plenty of shimmer on top. Then apply dramatic false eyelashes -- but make one eye uneven so you look disheveled. For help applying them, check out this video.
For your hair, try any of these updos, and after you're done, mess it up (try taking a nap or just rolling around on your bed) to complete the crazed look.
