One of the most whimsical Halloween costumes is the enchanting fairy. Searching online, you might find a lot of green makeup looks, but to get the full fairy look, you can experiment with hues of purple and pink. Find the longest lashes you can muster, some pigment, and a flower crown, and you're all set. The real key to this look is extending the shadow past your eyelids and above your brows but also bringing it underneath the eyes, similar to a painted-on mask. Expert tip: create texture on the "mask" by splattering a mix of isopropyl alcohol and pigment on the skin with a mascara wand or toothbrush — just be sure to keep your eyes closed during the process.

The Purr-fect Halloween Manicure For Nail-Art Fanatics
Halloween doesn't mean you have to go out and buy a costume. If you're not into the thrill of painting your face or busting out your best Nicki Minaj ensemble, why not paint your nails and show your Halloween spirit, too?
Katie Cazorla, founder of The Painted Nail, showed me the trick to pulling off a frightfully festive Halloween manicure — without worrying about scaring your boss at work the next day. It's all about a press-on adhesive nail that has staying power for, say, a night of blood sucking and that can be peeled off before you hit the sack. Stars like Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez rely on these types of nails for their photo shoots and music videos, where they're known to switch up nail shapes and polish shades several times.
As the West Coast Essie flagship salon, Katie gets all access when it comes to manicures. She even created her own gel-nail alternative, Color Flash Instant Nail Color, that doesn't include acid primers or acetone to soak off. Plus, it sets under an LED light in just 30 seconds, which significantly reduces your time under the UV light, compared to other manicures that last 1-2 weeks.
Now, about this nail art! Get ready to learn how to create the cutest black-cat nail — ears and all.

Marge & Me: See the Fun, Vibrant (and Wearable!) Simpsons Collection
The first lady of television — Marge Simpson — is coming to a MAC store near you! Marge is definitely in charge, as MAC has teamed up with The Simpsons for a one-of-a-kind beauty collaboration, celebrating the brand's 25th anniversary.
I met with MAC senior artist Caroline Donnelly to learn what makes this line wearable — unfortunately, Marge doesn't strike me as having the most office-friendly look — and it turns out that not only does this collection pop and offer a vivid color palettes, but it also has products that the makeup pros use. Case in point? That greenish-yellow lip gloss? It's best used as a base to help neutralize your brighter lipstick shades. It also serves as a great nude color option. The power of the color wheel, eh? And if you're already gearing up for Halloween (like I am), you'll enjoy Caroline's tutorial on how to get the Marge look at home. Relatively speaking, it's quite a simple DIY! Grab your water-based paint and black construction paper — this is a look you'll certainly be able to re-create at home. You'll blow your friends away with on All Hallows' Eve!
The Simpsons collection will be online on Aug. 28 and in stores Sept. 4.
Caroline Donnelly applies water-based paint to her model.
For the eyes, Donnelly used MAC Chromacake in Pure White ($26), MAC Paint Stick in Pure White ($21), MAC Fix+ ($20) and MAC Studio Fix in Shivering White ($27)."
For the skin, MAC Chromacake in Primary Yellow ($26) was applied.
Start with the eyes, and then move to the rest of the face.
Apply a bright red lipstick. And we all know MAC has plenty of bright reds to choose from! Donnelly went with MAC Lip Pencil in Cherry ($16) and MAC Lipstick in Russian Red ($16).
Then, apply eyeliner at the base of the lashes. Donnelly used MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack ($16).
Cut long, thin pieces of black construction paper for exaggerated eyelashes.
Adhere the paper lashes with your faux lash glue. Be sure to apply mascara first, and then let it dry before applying your paper lashes.
Almost ready . . .
There we go! The wig can be made out of chicken wire and curly blue wigs.
Last looks! To amp up the whiteness around the eyes, Donnelly used MAC Eye Kohl in Fascinating ($16) on the waterline.
Caroline, Marge, and moi!
For removal, Donnelly recommends using baby oil and wipes. "Stand on a towel and get a friend to help you — you'll need someone to help get it off your back!"
