In the second part of our Halloween beauty ideas, we show you how to get the look of an Egyptian goddess and a pretty peacock. To read the first part (Lady Gaga and Harajuku Girls), click here.

1. Egyptian Goddess

Cover your face in bronzer, like Physician’s Formula  Bronze Booster Pressed Bronzer ($14.95 at Ulta.com). If your skin is already dark, apply a gold, shimmery powder, like Stila Illuminating Gold Finishing Powder ($32 at Ulta.com).

Next, apply a shimmery gold eye shadow, like Bourjois Ombre Stretch Eyeshadow in Or Extensible ($15 at Ulta.com), on your lids and brow bone. Add black eyeliner and mascara, smudging the liner in a thick line on your temples.

Finish the look with some lip gloss, a head decoration and some Egyptian-inspired jewelry/clothing, and possibly a wig (if you have blonde hair)! Remember to bring your bronzer or pressed powder out with you for touch ups. (Image credit: marieclaire.com).

2. Peacock.

Rim the bottom and inner corner of your eyes with turquoise eye shadow, like Sephora Brand Colorful Mono Eyeshdaow in Swimming Pool ($12), letting it stick out a bit like a cat-eye at the end. Then, add yellow shadow, like Make Up For Ever Pure Pigments in Yellow ($19 at Sephora), to your lids up to your brow bone.

Complete the look with fake black lashes on top and fake purple lashes on the bottom. Try Sephora Brand False Eyelashes ($8), which come in a variety of colors that could work. (Image credit: mtv.com).
