For some women, Halloween may be an opportunity to show some skin as a sexy nurse, cat or cowgirl, but for those intrigued by the more creative possibilities, a costume can come together with just a little inspiration and a makeup kit. Anchoring your idea with makeup will take the pressure off finding the right garment and make for an impressive addition to even the most simple costume concept.

Whether you're planning to be a reptilian sea creature or a pop star, it's the makeup that makes these costumes impressive, no matter what the clothing.
