Halloween is here! Still no costume? No problem!

The perfect look for that night could be a little stressful, especially if you don't want to spend a lot of time and money on it. We asked, professional make-up & hair artist,  Mayela Vazquez, to share recommendations that will help you look amazing:

Mayela says: Take a look at the things you already have in your closet…what do you have there? Look for those pieces that can match to create the look that you want. Maybe a black dress could work for a vampire look, gothic fairy or a glamorous witch.

A long white dress could work for a zombie, a ghost bride or even a mummy costume. Have fun and think of what you can do to pull out some of the accessories or clothes that you haven't used in a long time.

Your make-up and hair are key to make your look stand up from others so get inspired and get beauty products that last longer, choose your color palette and of course, get your Halloween avant garde lashes.

Recommended brands:

Make-Up Forever Mascara and HD Powder.
Shiseido and Bobbi Brown have a cream eye liner that is amazing for long lasting looks.
Eve Pearl eyeliner is always one of my MUST HAVE beauty products. It is easy to use and it would last for long hours.

For eyelashes I recommend Shu Uemura, Make-Up Forever or Ardell.
