Dressing up for Halloween doesn't mean that you have to wear a costume. Get a fun Halloween look without wearing a costume with these easy tips.
As we get older, many of us stop wearing Halloween costumes. I think that the last time I wore an actual Halloween costume was over 5 years ago, and even then it was only because I was attending a Halloween party.
When we are children we dress up in Halloween costumes each year to go trick-or-treating. But typically by the end of high school, we stop going trick-or-treating. When trick-or-treating stops, dressing up often stops as well, with the exception of being invited to a Halloween party.
But it doesn't have to be that way! Adults can still have fun rockin' a Halloween look, no costume necessary. With the right makeup, clothing, and hair products getting a Halloween look is easy.
You can rock your Halloween look to work, while taking your kids trick-or-treating, or while answering the door for trick-or-treaters. I am sure the children – and your co-workers – will get a kick out of it!
That is why I decided that this year I wanted to celebrate Halloween with a fun Halloween look. And I am glad that I did because I had a lot of fun creating my Halloween look! Read on for my tips with you on getting a fun Halloween look, sans the costume.
Wear black and orange
Black and Orange are the quintessential colors of Halloween. So, if you are going for a Halloween look be sure to wear these colors on the big day. You can wear each color on its own, or combine the two.
I paired an orange tank top with a black hooded sweatshirt for an easy Halloween wardrobe made of items I had right in my closet.
Rock a Halloween t-shirt
An alternative to wearing black and orange is wearing a Halloween T-shirt. You can find t-shirts with pumpkins, haunted houses, and fun Halloween sayings.
Have fun with your hair
Halloween is the perfect day to try something fun and different with your hair.
For my Halloween look I went for wild little pig tail knots and twistys / faux dreadlocks on either side of my face. I knew I needed a super strong hair gel to pull of this look, so I picked up a tube of Got2b® Glued Styling Spiking Hair Gel from Walmart.
For hair with attitude, I look for Got2b®. Got2b® makes a wide range of unisex hair styling products. Whether I am looking for a silky and shiny straight ‘do or hold and texture like I am for this Halloween look, I know Got2b® has just the product. Got2b® gets that you've got2b you.
Got2b® Glued Styling Spiking Hair Gel is no joke – it locks hair in place with it's strong hold and keeps it in place all day long. It is water resistant and even holds up well in humidity or a bit of rain.
While Got2b® Glued Styling Spiking Hair Gel is perfect for spiking hair, it is also great for making twistys. To get this look I separated a section of hair on either side of my head, and massaged a dab of Got2b® Glued Styling Spiking Hair Gel through it. Then, I twisted the hair around my finger to give it that messy twisty look.
Next, I pulled the rest of my hair into pigtail knots, high on top of my head. And finally, I added a bit of Got2b® Glued Styling Spiking Hair Gel to each to give them a messy look.
Got2b® products are available at Walmart. Find them online or in-store in the Hair Care section. Plus, for a limited time you can earn $1 with ibotta on all your favorite got2b items!

Go heavy on the eyeliner
Halloween is the perfect time to have fun with your make-up. So break out that eyeliner and black eyeshadow and go to town!
I went for a very dramatic cat eye look, using liquid black eyeliner, black eyeshadow, a bit of white eyeshadow to highlight and a LOT of black mascara.
Perfect day for a bold lip
To complete your Halloween look choose a bold color of lipstick. Think bright red, orange, or black.
Paint those nails
Don't forget your nails! Paint them with a black polish or even use black and orange polishes and alternate colors on each nail.
I wore a long black beaded necklace, a black bow ring, and a skull ring for my Halloween look. But, the options are endless with fun pieces that can add to your halloween look and really make a statement.
