Halloween fairy costumes, or at least the mall-bought kinds, may come off as cheesy or tacky. But that doesn’t mean you have to put off your dreams of dressing as a fairy next Halloween. Just swap the glittered wings and pointy shoes for a more chic and contemporary solution.
You could, for instance, go simple with your costume and go big with your makeup instead. For a soft, glam and delicate fairy look, apply sparkly eye shadow in silver and frosty lipstick in light pink. Then for that mysterious and magical glow that fairies are known for, use an extra dash of illuminator.
