How crazy is it that it’s already the end of October?! Wow right? Most of you probably already have your costume picked out and know what to dress up as. But there are a lot of last minute peeps out there who are still trying to figure it out. I created my own Vampire Diaries Inspired Look of ‘Katherine Pierce’ with a masquerade ball mask. This was a very last minute look that is inexpensive and did not take a lot of time to create. Unfortunately while I was filming my tutorial, my battery died and I kept trying to charge then film then charge then film again…it was already late in the evening so I had no time to wait and just gave up. How frustrating! Next time I’ll make sure I have a spare battery fully charged. Sooooo, below is a picture of the final look instead.
I have also picked out my Top 10 favorite Makeup Artists on YouTube below. They created some really awesome Halloween looks this year and they are worth checking out. If you’re stumped and unsure, there’s plenty of inspiration to choose from.

I was going to draw a black mask on my face but decided to just buy one instead. I found this beautiful gold mask on sale for $6 at Michael’s. Fangs were from the Spirit Halloween Store.
