Happy Friday gals! Today's edition of Currently Crushing On is all about Halloween! Halloween is so fun to me! I mean who doesn't love dressing up, sweet treats, and all things skulls? I want to jump right in because I have so much inspo to share with you!

Halloween Makeup Tutorials + DIY Costumes

I absolutely love watching makeup tutorials on youtube. But Halloween makeup tutorials?! Yes please. There are so many talented makeup artists out there and I think their talent truly shines through these creative Halloween looks. Here are a few looks that I am currently swooning over!

White Skull: Cosmobyhaley

Melting Skull: Desi Perkins 

Sugarfiend: Nicole Guerriero 

Mermaid: RawBeautyKristi 

As far as DIY costumes go, Lauren Conrad is my go-to girl! Every year, LC posts a step by step tutorial for how to make your own Halloween costume. She always does an amazing job. You can find some of her Halloween DIY's here:

Wildfox Halloween Tee's

Wildfox is a brand that I find myself lusting over season after season. They always have the cutest graphic tees and sweatshirts for every holiday/event/season you can think of; however, they can be a little pricey. Back in July, I purchased their Red Wine & Blue tee for the 4th and I absolutely fell in love with the quality. If you're not into dressing up, but still want to look festive, these tees are worth the price + right now you can get 25% off your order on their site with the code BFF. It's hard to justify spending a ton on a shirt you may only wear once a year, but you can't pass up this deal! Take advantage of it while it lasts! You can shop my faves below:

Sweet Treats

What would Halloween be without the treats?! There are SO many fab treats out there, but keeping it simple is sometimes the way to go. If you're short on time and want to use minimal ingredients, try baking these Reese's Pieces Chocolate Chip Cookies! They are DELISH! If you want to make something that really screams Halloween, try these or these

Home Decor

I always remember my mom decorating the house for Halloween when I was a kid. She would have ghosts and witches and skeletons, etc. Now that I'm technically an adult and I don't have any littles yet, our Halloween home decor has become more chic. For example, that white and rose gold skull mug you saw above was a fab find from Homegoods this season! If you're hosting a Halloween party this year, Styled By Kasey has all of the black + glittery Halloween inspo. Also be sure to check out your local Target - they have some great Halloween decor items!
