October is here, which means Halloween is right around the corner. While we do have almost the entire month to prepare for the big day (or night), it’s important to be ready to slay for whatever party or parade you’re going to. For those who aren’t too into dressing up, don’t worry sis, we got you with some great makeup ideas for Halloween — none of which include skeleton makeup because let’s be real, it’s 2018.
