Ashley Benson Gives Inspo For Halloween & Beyond

by Augusta Statz

If you’re like me and love a Halloween costume that’s a little more cute than scary, then you’re going to love this. Ashley Benson wore a vampire look that’s great for Halloween and beyond, because there’s absolutely no reason why you can rock a black lip when it’s not Oct. 31. Her costume is the perfect mix of sexy/scary/cute to make for the perfect Halloween, if you ask me.

She totally owned the dark lip trend, and as for the rest of her makeup, she kept it pretty minimal except for a bit of black liner around the eye. You’ve got to play up your best features, you know? She slightly curled her hair, but left it a little messy looking, which was good choice. Wearing a lace-up top and a choker necklace, she was super on-trend in the outfit and accessory department as well. Blood splatters that could be seen in between the laces of her top gave the look an extra hint of Halloween spookiness.

Overall, however, I’d definitely say that this is something you could wear on a daily basis. So, even if you’ve already got your costume all planned out — you’re still going to want to wear this look. And the best part is, you totally can.

I'm loving that dark lip.

Slay, vampire, slay.

If you're not willing to go full-on black with your lipstick, then give one that's almost black a try. This deep purple will do just the trick.
