GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Vampires, ghouls, goblins and witches will soon be ringing your doorbell looking for a trick or a treat.
As the spirit of Halloween is in the air, your kids may have a busy schedule to end the month between school celebrations and friends’ parties.
9 On Your Side stopped by Halloween Express in Greenville to get advice and a tutorial on a quick DIY costume for any last minute gatherings.
“I wanted to do just a really simple scarecrow look,” said makeup artist and sales representative Chelsey Biondi. “Simple, easy fast and all you need is a flannel shirt to pull it all together. And everyone loves a scarecrow. They’re adorable.”
All you need is a Halloween makeup kit or some products from home to make it happen.
“The makeup is the easiest and cheapest route in my opinion because you can pull out whatever is in your closet and have some amazing makeup,” said Biondi.
To start the scarecrow look, mix some orange face paint and paint a tear drop on the nose. Make sure to cover both sides. Then, take a black face crayon, or even eyeliner for scarecrow stitches.
Once that’s done, move on to the cheeks. Using a makeup sponge, create a circle on each cheek with red.
Then, connect the black lines for the mouth to the red cheeks and add more scarecrow stitches.
Add a flannel shirt and you have yourself a little scarecrow!
