BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — If you're looking for a last minute costume, don't worry! We have a couple of last minute looks to get you in disguise in time for Halloween night.

Glowy Mermaid:

What you'll need:
-Pink, purple and blue eyeshadows (or any colors to match your costume)
-Fishnet tights
-Eyelash glue
-Large makeup brush

How to:
-Cut a piece of fabric from the fishnet tights and place it on top of your face.
-Gently press the eyeshadow into your skin, over the tights. Try not to move the fabric.
-Add some colors to your eyes.
-Add glitter overtop of the eyeshadow.
-Add some eyelash glue in small spots over the scaley-look.
-Place the rhinestones on top of the glue.
-Add a bright lip color and some more glitter over top the entire look.

Spooky Skeleton:

What you'll need:
-Black and white Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint, which can be purchased at Fantasy Frocks Costume Store in Bakersfield. (Any face paint that dries quickly will work.)
-Several brushes
-Black eye shadow

How to:
-Remove any make up product off of your lips. Face and eye makeup can remain on
-Start with the dark, black accents of the skeleton design
-If you make a mistake, a clean brush dipped in water can be used as an 'eraser'
-Go in and fill in the face with white paint. You may need several coats to achieve a matte, smooth look
-Using black eye shadow, go over the white edges and the black details to blend and soften the look
-An all black outfit completes the spooky look!
