2 Easy Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

It’s Matt’s favorite time of year…  Halloween!  We look forward to October each year because we get to really let our creativity show with our videos.  Last year, Matt was working on Timeless, so he didn’t get to be as involved as he likes.  This year, we’ve released two videos so far and they’re both easy to recreate and great for anyone looking for a last minute costume idea.  Chances are you have most of the makeup products used to get these looks.  As for the products you don’t have, they’re easily replaceable with something you can find as your local Sephora, Ulta or drugstore.

First up, we have a scarecrow.  This would be adorable for a family dressing up as the Wizard of Oz!

There is no special makeup products involved in this look, which makes it PERFECT for any last-minute folks out there.  Just grab a straw hat, any flannel shirt and straw, if you have easy access to it, and you’re good to go!  This is such a cute look that’s office and kid appropriate.

Watch the full tutorial of this makeup look to see just how easy it really is here:

On Thursday, I released my latest Halloween makeup tutorial: Easy Skull Makeup.  If you’re looking for a creepy, but not too scary, costume, then this is for you.  Skull/Skeleton makeup can be very intimidating.  I’ve done skull makeup in the past that was very intricate with face paints that took FOREVER to do.  They came out so cool, but not everyone has the time or patience to do that.  I wanted to create a skull look that would be super easy for anyone to recreate and take the intimidation out of it for you…  So, I came up with this look.

My Favorite BB & CC Creams 150 150 Angela Lanter

My Favorite BB & CC Creams

In my recent video, Everyday Natural Makeup Tutorial, I talked about my love for BB and CC creams.  I asked if y’all would want to see a video about different BB and CC creams that are currently available, and which ones I personally love, and the response was an overwhelming yes!  I filmed my Favorite BB & CC Creams + First Impressions.


I wanted to put all of the products I talked about in this video in one place for you to see.  Several of these products are brand new to me before this video, so I’m giving you my unbiased first impression.

One mistake I’d like to point out on my behalf is regarding the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion.  I mistakenly assumed it was a BB product because of the cushion design, which I was (obviously) incorrect about.  It is actually a sheer to medium coverage foundation.  This explains my explanation about heavy coverage/application.  Now knowing that it is a foundation, I’m even less fond of this particular foundation because of the application method.  I find that the sponge just pushes around the product.  I personally would apply this foundation with a damp beautyblender.  Just my two cents!  Also, I’d like to clarify, I’m normally a huge fan of L’Oreal products so this is just one product of theirs that isn’t my absolute favorite.

Tutorial: Natural Everyday Makeup Look

I’ve been playing in makeup since I was four years old.  With all of the makeup in my collection, you would think that I have a different makeup look for every day of the week, and I probably do.  Here’s the thing: when you get comfortable with a certain look or product, you tend to stick to it…  Even when you have a ton of makeup like I do, lol.  Every woman I know has their go-to everyday makeup look.  Some want to look more glam and others want to look more natural.

When I think of everyday makeup, I think of looking like a better version of yourself.  Fresh, clear skin with soft, rosy cheeks.  My focus is on my lashes and lips.  Today’s video is about my everyday natural makeup look.  Essentially, it’s my “No makeup, makeup look.”  I’m taking you step by step through this routine and showing you each product I use on an everyday basis.

Just a head’s up…  Multiple products that I use in this video are ON SALE!  Check out the makeup list below to see which items you should snag for a weekend deal!
