It's finally here, that time of year again; time to bulk shop on candy, dig out the decorations and throw out last years mask. Get ready to be inspired for a Halloween makeover. We've got you covered with our 10 tricks and treats.
TREAT: Show what your mama gave you - apparently this is one day of the year we we can dress more extrovert, a la 'Mean Girls'.
TRICK : It can get cold outside so make sure to wear a warm coat which can also cover you up on your way to and from the party!!
TREAT: Pumpkin carving - get creative! Go mad, paint them, use stencils and sharpies to make your very own perfect Halloween decoration. For something simple but effective use the cookie cutter trick. You only need two items for this: the scariest cookie cutter you can find and a rubber mallet. Once you’ve decided what you want your pumpkin to look like, gently hammer the cookie cutter shape into your pumpkin with the mallet.
TRICK: Careful of those hands when carving/hammering. DON'T cut the top off your pumpkin. DO cut the bottom off your pumpkin to keep the moisture inside the pumpkin longer.
TREAT: Dress up something relevant to a current affair. We love Jemima Khan's outfit for the UNICEF Halloween Ball where she dressed as Melania Trump being groped by her husband, the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
TRICK: Do not dress up as those scary clowns committing crimes!!! Lets all have fun, no negative vibes.
TREAT: Festive party food, if you’re looking for a little pumpkin carving practice, try bell peppers. They’re way easier to carve than the pumpkins and they turned out just as cute. Stuff with rice, cheese and various veggies of your choice for a tasty festive snack.
TRICK: Save for your dinner party guests, don't hand out to trick or treaters unless you want your house egged...stick to candy.
(You don't want to upset these kids!)
TREAT: Serve you party shots in test tubes for a seriously scary shot. Vodka and food colouring. How cool does the set-up below look!
TRICK: Don’t forget to provide a non-alcoholic choice for the non drinkers, or for the kids!
TREAT: What Halloween is complete without a pumpkin spiced latte...Find a recipe HERE.
TRICK: Don't over indulge if your trying to lose a few lbs - be warned one of these PSL's has as many carbs as a bagel!
TREAT: Who needs a mask, so last year! Go glam and gem up with this make up inspo, such as Mexican Day of the Dead look and pair with our Danielle Rose Thorn choker. We also love these Halloween lips!!
TRICK: Remember to keep your face wipes by your bed! Having all this make up on your pillow won't be fun in the morning.
TREAT: Glitter it up this Halloween with the on trend theme this year. What you will need - Hair gel, empty pots, tint brush, glitter. Get the empty pots, empty gel into pots and mix the glitter to make a glitter paste and apply to hair with tint brush.
TRICK: Be prepared to find trails of glitter behind you everywhere you go for days after.
TREAT: Do we really need more Halloween-themed accessories? Nope, at this rate half our wardrobe is going to be redundant come November. Shop these Halloween suitable pieces of jewellery that you will want to wear all year round anyway.
TRICK: Prepare for a visit from the Green-Eyed monster, a.k.a friend envy!!
TREAT: Fancy a night in to tackle your fears, why not cosy up on the sofa and have a Halloween movie marathon. These cult classics should be on your list:
The Exorcist, Carrie, Scream and The Silence of the Lambs!!
TRICK: DO NOT do this alone!
