With Halloween just a week away, finding last-minute costumes may be at the top of your to-do list. You may be browsing through celebrity looks that you screenshotted months ago for inspiration. Maybe you’re trying to put together a costume, makeup, and wig to get you through the night, or you’re searching through the warehouse to re-wear your look from last year. Either way, Halloween is the time of year when you can cosplay as someone or something other than yourself for the night; even if it means being a “sexy kitty” for the third year in a row.
Last year, Lori HarveyFirst, she was wearing a cat costume herself. In particular, she recreated a look from Beyoncé’s “Kitty Kat” music video: cheetah-print eyeshadow, coffin-shaped nails, and a high ponytail. Speaking of Beyoncé, take inspiration from her Toni Braxton look and dress like your favorite legend with a timelessly beautiful look. Plus, you can never go wrong with Disney princess beauty; Perfect to pair with little ones for trick-or-treating.
