Hate spending money on Halloween costumes that you can only wear once? I've partnered with Mirum Shopper to share this easy DIY witch costume that you can repurpose after Halloween is over.
Halloween was fun when I was a kid, but now that I've got kids of my own it's REALLY fun! I love going all out on their costumes and I even like to get dressed up myself to take them trick-or-treating. Last year I played it simple and picked up a fun superhero t-shirt to coordinate with my little Superman. This year I wanted something a little more sophisticated, BUT I hate spending money on costumes that I can only wear once. That's why I'm putting together my very own DIY witch look with items that I can repurpose long after Halloween ends. I was able to get most of the items right at Target so that's a major plus for this busy mom.
Easy DIY witch costume
First, you'll need a few things from the Target beauty aisle. Besides some makeup to create a smokey eyes and a rich lip color, you'll need some hair care items from a few of my favorite brands to create a bewitchingly beautiful look. To achieve gorgeous, loose curls with tons of body, pick up TRESemmé® Climate Control Hairspray and Suave Professionals® Keratin Color Care Dry Shampoo, then follow the easy steps below:
Using Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser to take your makeup off is an old family secret around here. Believe me, it works! Of course you'll be able to use these products after Halloween too. Don't forget to download the Cartwheel app to spooky savings on Unilever products.
Now, onto our easy DIY witch costume. Instead of spending upwards of $80-$100 on a deluxe witch costume that you'll wear just one, skip the green face paint and dated long black dress and go a little glam! I picked up a black tulle skirt a few months ago for less than $30 and I've worn it quite a few times. I wore it with a simple tank top and high heels on a date night with my husband and I plan on doing a little Disney bounding this fall. For this look, pair your tulle skirt with a simple black t-shirt. You can find these anywhere and go as dressy or casual as you'd like. This is definitely an item you can reuse later, or maybe you already have one on hand. You can find the black booties, striped socks and witch hat at Target. And excuse me, but how awesome are those booties?! I'll be wearing them all fall and winter long. Plus, since they're from Target you know you won't be spending a fortune.
Whatever look you decide to go with this year, be sure to head to the beauty aisle at Target to stock up on the products that will help bring your Halloween look to life. Plus, you’ll save with Cartwheel when you add select Unilever personal care products to the cart. Now that's bewitching!
What are you planning to be for Halloween?
I'd love to hear all about it!
