For some girls, a bumble bee is their go-to costume every Halloween. For others, it’s a witch. But my lazy girl, last-minute costume is much more original: Carrie from Stephen King’s classic high school drama, well, Carrie.
She’s a ‘70s high school outcast turned prom queen turned avenger with deathly telekinetic powers. For Halloween, dressing as Carrie is the easiest costume—all you need to purchase is some fake blood—everything else you probably have around the house.
STEP 3: DEFINE YOUR BROWS
STEP 4: ADD BLUSH
Swirl a cream blush onto the apples of your cheeks with a large fluffy brush for an enlivened, excited-for-prom flush. Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush comes in 10 fantastic and blendable shades that we love for every day and Halloween.
STEP 5: SCULPT THE EYES
Smooth a neutral, matte shadow from your lash line to the sockets, being sure to diffuse the color as you blend upward so there are no harsh lines. The Huda Beauty Nude Obsession Palettes have a ton of great shades—plus you’ll use it in your everyday life, too. For another option, try Maybelline New York Nudes of New York. Next, add a deeper shade into the crease of your eye for a defined look.
STEP 6: A POP OF SHIMMER
STEP 7: ADD MASCARA
For naturally glamorous lashes comb through your top fringe with two coats of Pat McGrath Dark Star mascara. Use a heavy hand to coat your bottom lashes for the most authentically ’70s look.
STEP 8: A TOUCH OF GLOSS
A FIRST LOOK: CROWNED AS QUEEN
You’re now Carrie, pre-cruel prank. If you want, add a wavy blonde wig to complete the look. (Chloe Fineman from SNL says Amazon’s selection of wigs can’t be beat.) Next a tiara—and a winning smile!
STEP 10: SMUDGE YOUR MASCARA
To take the look to the next level, continue by smearing mascara onto your lids and underneath your eyes. Dab either your fingers or a paint brush in water to expedite the process—you can also use the mascara wand to make it appear like you’ve been crying.
STEP 11: PRANK TIME
Stand in the shower (trust me) in your Carrie dress and have a friend go to town with the fake blood—this one is the best in my opinion. You want them to hold the container over your head (angled at your forehead so it doesn’t pool at the crown of your head) and liberally squeeze. Or, try M.A.C makeup artist Fatima T.’s homemade recipe: one-and-a-half cups of dark corn syrup, one square of melted chocolate, two to three drops of blue food coloring, and 15 drops of red food coloring all mixed together. The best part about her concoction? It actually tastes delicious and doesn’t stain clothes.
THE FINAL LOOK: READY FOR REVENGE
Tilt that tiara, get a vengeful look in your eye, and you’re finished!
