It should come as no surprise that Halloween will look a bit different this year, but one normal morsel you can count on is that Party City is probably fresh out of cat ears by now. If you’ve left your costume to the last minute, do not fret.
Pretending we aren’t ourselves, even for just a few fleeting hours, can be an essential form of escapism, especially in a year like this. For one night, as we visit drive-through haunted attractions, trick-or-treat from a social distance or cozy up at home with a horror flick, maybe our faces can tell a different story than the one already unfolding.
So while these looks might work best for cosmetics connoisseurs, go ahead and try your hand at a full beat (that means a flawless face of makeup, for those of you who don’t spend hours on beauty YouTube), eat a bunch of Reese’s and howl at the moon tonight. It just might help you feel better.
