25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

A Simple Glam Makeup Tutorial with e.l.f. Cosmetics


A smoky eye is one of the top makeup looks for a night out, as is the classic red lip, but as a mom, I like to go with something a little more wearable and easy to apply. It's typical to go with either bold eye makeup and more neutral lips or a bold lip and more natural eye makeup. I really love to stick with my daytime eye makeup bumped up a notch with shimmer and winged eyeliner. Then I can add on a berry lipstick or a light red-tinted gloss as I'm rushing out the door. Though the eyes are still subtle enough, I could add on bold red lipstick if I wanted to. I've created this look with some of my recent favorites from e.l.f cosmetics.


My favorite new makeup product for getting this look is the e.l.f. Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow Palette, California edition. The shimmer eyeshadow colors range from a light champagne to a gold and copper with a few cool tones in blue and purple. I love how the blues and purples aren't too heavily pigmented, so they blend very easily for a glam but somewhat neutral look. Though you could pile on one of the shades for a more bold look. I'm pretty picky about my shimmer makeup. Anything too glittery, and I feel like I'm back in high school with my cheer leading uniform on and a ridiculous bow in my hair. The e.l.f. baked palette is just the right amount of shimmer for an elegant evening look.

I started with e.l.f. BB Cream, e.l.f. Studio complete coverage concealer, and a mineral blend powder, then completed the look with bronzing powder along the jawline and underneath the cheekbones, shimmer blush on the cheeks, and a red lip gloss.  Here's how to use the e.l.f. baked palette for your evening out.


*Tip: Hold a tissue over your under-eye areas as you apply the shadow to avoid getting extra shimmer where you don't want it.
