DIY Breakfast at Tiffany's Halloween Costume
Today I will be sharing with you a very simple Holly Golightly costume for all of you Breakfast at Tiffany's fans out there! Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favorite movie. Every time I watch it, I want to move to New York and live in an apartment with a bathtub couch. Doesn't that sound delightful?!
I put together this costume several years ago and have dressed up as Holly Golightly for a few Halloweens now. It's so simple to achieve this look!
You will need:
- A tiara or barrette
- Pearl earrings - I got mine at Claire's
- Pearl necklace - mine is from JC Penney
- Cigarette holder - any costume store will have one
- Black gloves
- Black heels
- Little Black Dress, of course! I got my vintage dress on eBay a few years ago.
Keep reading to see how I styled my hair and makeup for this look.
Because I have no talent when it comes to hair, I don't even try Audrey's updo. I simply tease my hair like crazy on top and put it into a bun. The higher the pouf, the better!
For my makeup, I did a light brown shadow in the crease and black winged liner.
I am using the Morphe 35 Color Matte Palette. As you can see in this picture, it has been very loved! This palette pretty much has every color I could ever need in it for an everyday makeup look. The Morphe shadows are great - super easy to blend and really pigmented.
For a winged liner, I hold the corner of my eye taut very gently. I start with the wing and move in about halfway. Once I have the wing the way I want it, I then go to the inner corner of my eye and go back the other way until I have one solid line.
Next, curl lashes and apply mascara.
Lastly, apply lipstick. Any light pink or coral shade would look great! I used YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick. To be honest, I'm not sure what shade it is because I don't think it says it on the lipstick tube (the writing is super small) but it is a very light pink!
