Still can't figure out what to be for Halloween night? Try out one of these dazzling looks created entirely with Laura Geller products for an instant Halloween costume solution that will make an impression!
-Next, for the perfect skeleton complexion, we recommend using our Baked Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Foundation in Porcelain.
-Apply our Eye Rimz in Blue Voodoo to your lids for a skeleton stare that smolders.
-Create "eye sockets" by drawing in large black circular shapes around the eyes that you will fill in with I-Care Eyeliner in Black.
-With your I-Care, draw lines on the outer corners of the mouth that mark the hinges of the jaw, and thin lines on the mouth to create the spaces between the ‘teeth’.
-Brush on some of our GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara.
-For a standout skeleton look, finish with our Color Enriched Anti-Aging Lipstick in Cab Crush, a creamy plum color.
-With our Baked Marble Eyeshadow in Pink Icing/Devils Food, sweep the lightest shade across your lids blending up to your crease. Apply the dark shade to your outer lashline and outer crease and blend well for a sophisticated eye look.
-Apply our GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara for the ultimate beauty queen look.
-Finish with our Color Drenched Lip Gloss in French Press Rose.
-Cover your face with our Spackle Under Make-Up Primer to create a flawless canvas and help your whiskers and nose stay on longer without having to reapply.
-Create an upside-down triangle on the tip of your nose using our Inkwell Waterproof Gel Liner in Black and fill it in. The point should be at the bottom of your nose.
-Still using the Inkwell, create the pronounced tear ducts by drawing a vertical quarter-inch line from your inner top lash lines past your natural tearducts.
-Then, fully line your top lash lines extending the line out past the outer corners of your eyes creating a fierce cat-eye look.
-Apply our GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara for long, gorgeous, feline lashes.
-Finish with our Color Brilliance Lustrous Lipstick in our vibrant rose shade, Flirt.

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, with racks in middle and lower positions. Line 3 muffin tins with 34 liners. Whisk together 3 cups flour, the baking powder, and salt. Beat butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and the vanilla until pale and fluffy. Scrape down sides of bowl as needed.
2. Beat in flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with milk.
3. Beat whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beating until stiff, glossy peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold one-third of the whites into batter, then carefully fold in remaining whites. Gently toss blueberries with remaining 1/4 cup flour to coat. Gently fold floured blueberries into batter. Divide batter evenly among cupcake liners.
4. Bake until cupcakes spring back when touched, 23 to 25 minutes. Let cool in tins on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from tins, and let cool completely on wire racks. Frost cupcakes and garnish each with a raspberry.
