What will you be for Halloween? While you ponder that, think about this: a costume is more than just the clothes on your back. To really do it up right, you need the hair, the makeup, the accessories. Kinda like you would with any big soiree. The difference, of course, being that on this occasion, you’re encouraged to look like a freak.
You could D.I.Y., but some things (tiger stripes? a ghoulish glow? I Dream of Jeanie eyeliner?) require more than a little practice. And sometimes, you’ve even gotta call in the pros. One local spa offering Halloween makeup services is Spa Radiance. Tell them your costume in advance, and they’ll have a toolbox of tricks up their sleeves when you arrive for your 30- or 60-minute appointment ($50-$90).
At the very least, it’ll leave you more time to count your candy.
