At least half (or a pretty good chunk) of the fun of Halloween is getting ready. On the makeup front, it’s the perfect opportunity to try a new look, or that red lip you’ve always wanted test out.
But maybe you don’t totally trust yourself to execute a perfect Dia de los Muertos sugar skull on your face. Maybe you just want a reason to get your makeup done with friends. Either way, you have plenty of local options, whether you’re looking to simply compliment your costume or completely transform from head-to-toe.
BAM Beauty Bar
The freshly opened West Village makeup and blow dry bar has been serving up serious Halloween inspiration on Instagram, which you should absolutely use when you score complete hair and makeup (including lashes) for $175. Be sure to snag a selfie in front of BAM’s glorious, all-white flower wall before you head out.
Starting now through October 31, the Oak Lawn beauty lounge is offering bold looks that would perfectly compliment your Wonder, Cat, and Bat Woman costume (or whatever your heart desires) for $100.
Make Up For Ever
Get a crash course on mastering that sexy skull face (a thing!) or leave it to the pros at Make Up For Ever’s NorthPark Center outpost. Click for details on arranging everything from a group class to professional full-body makeup.
