DIY Breakfast at Tiffany's Halloween Costume

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!
