Fall is my favorite time of year, but October is beyond hectic. Besides the fact that I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things for the new school year, there’s also the whole Halloween madness thing. As a parent, I’m somehow supposed to decorate the house, stock up on candy and — the trickiest of all — execute pro-looking Halloween costumes for all of my kids. Who has time for all that?
And when ‘Procrastination’ is your middle name (I’m calling myself out here), chances are you too will be left trying to pull off a cute getup for your children at the eleventh hour. No pressure, right?
If you’ve got a little makeup and some creativity, however, you can pull off a cute costume in a snap. These super-simple Halloween face-painting looks are perfect for when you’re pressed for time.
