One mermaid tail, check. One T-shirt to wear under the inappropriately risqué mermaid top, check. One fabulous tiara, check.

Now that I've got the ensemble nailed down for my pint-sized mermaid princess, let's focus on MY costume. What can I whip up in oh, a day?

In steps Sephora to save my humdrum Halloween. I can choose from one of four makeup kits to morph into a Vegas showgirl, peacock, devil or vampire.
I'm leaning toward the vampire set, which includes fabulous false lashes, goth-ish black eyeshadow and liner and candy-apple red lip gloss. Just add fangs and a cape and I'm ready to join the realm of the undead. Plus after Halloween, I can tone down the look and incorporate the makeup into my everyday routine (minus the fangs).

Happy haunting!
