If you ever need to pull together a last minute costume, one option is to apply dramatic makeup. If you paired a look like the one shown in this video – a calavera or sugar skull – with a black dress or another simple outfit, you’re set. You still have to gather supplies and spend time applying the makeup, but it might be easier than worrying about assembling an entire costume. YouTuber poutbrush gathered inspiration for her look from the web and used face paint and eyeliner to build up the layers. You can watch to see how it comes together and to get inspiration.
