For the past five years, my Halloween costumes have centered around one strapless black taffeta 80’s prom dress. The differentiating factors between my zombie prom queen, punk princess, and pirate are Revlon Lustrous Lipstick in Love That Red running from the lower lip, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Oil Slick smudged across the eyelids, or an eye patch. It’s an annual cop-out, sure, but I don’t have time for anything else. And neither do you. So, here are my top Halloween costumes for 2012 that require little more than awesome fake eyelashes. You want an excuse to wear them anyway, so win-win.
