The spookiest season of the year has arrived, and Halloween is historically known as the perfect time to go all out.

Halloween sneaks up on me every year, and I find myself scrambling at the last minute to figure out a fun and easy makeup look. Believe it or not, you don't have to rock a full face of costume makeup or spend hours in front of the mirror to nail your Halloween glam. You can keep it simple and still show out for the occasion. Scroll on for minimalist Halloween makeup ideas that will guarantee you the perfect selfie.
