These Are the Most Popular Makeup Costumes on Pinterest Right Now

ICYMI, Halloween is less than a month away, which means if you haven’t started planning — or at least thinking about your costume yet — then chances are you could probably use a little help. That’s where everyone’s go-to inspiration station (cheers to unintentional rhyming!) Pinterest comes into play. Because when it comes to costume ideas, it’s safe to say they know what’s up.

In fact, our kind friends at Pinterest let us in on some ~secret information — otherwise known as the annual Pinfrights report — which reveals what DIY makeup costume ideas (because duh, they’re our fave) have been trending the most in 2017. And oddly enough, they totally weren’t what I was expecting…

The three most popular makeup-made costume ideas on Pinterest this year are — drum roll — unicorns, giraffes (not a joke), and Spiderwoman. Surprised? Me too.

Nevertheless, the data doesn’t lie. Pinterest users have been searching and saving the aforementioned ideas like it’s their job, and after taking a quick scroll through myself, I can see why. I was in awe of all the unique variations and how each person took their own spin on it. Below, check out a few of the best (IMO) DIY unicorn, giraffe, and Spidey costume ideas created with makeup found on Pinterest.

Welp, looks like I found my costume for this year. Who woulda’ thunk it? (Not me. But this is SO cute!)

I’m in love with the glitter accents on this creation.


A step-by-step guide couldn’t make this any easier.
