Easy DIY Cruella Halloween Costume and Makeup




As soon as I watched the new Cruella 2021 movie, I instantly knew I would like to recreate one of her fierce Halloween looks. The movie features plenty of epic fashion and beauty moments, and there are a ton of different versions of the character you can channel. The best part – with normal drugstore makeup and fall outfits, you can make an easy DIY Cruella Halloween costume on a budget!

I’m a huge fan of creating Halloween costumes using regular clothes because even if you buy something new to create the look, it’s something you can wear outside of just one night. Same goes with Halloween makeup looks – I very rarely buy from limited edition makeup kits and opt for products that add value to my collection as a whole and won’t be thrown away on the 1st. November.

The new Cruella movie is all about the fashion industry, and you’ll find her in high fashion outfits that can easily translate into outfits you already own or can find in stores.

For my Cruella Halloween costume, I opted for a faux leather motorcycle jacket (she wears several throughout the movie), which can be paired with a high waisted faux leather skirt to replicate her outfit. These two pieces can be easily styled into a fall or winter wardrobe.

Finish the outfit with a pair of boots – these heeled ankle boots feature a delicate chain detail similar to a pair Emma Stone wears as Cruella.

The only Halloween exclusive item I bought for this costume was the Cruella wig, which came with a replica of the choker she wears in the movie. The set was $ 25.

As for makeup, it really doesn’t take much to get the look. Cruella wears a strong graphic smoky eye and a bold red lip. A drugstore smoked eyeshadow palette is a must-have for sultry nighttime looks, and every makeup lover needs a red lipstick!

I created the angular lip look using the Kokie Cosmetics retractable lip liner in True red. It’s waterproof and durable, and you can get 25% off with the code SlashedBeauty! I filled the lip with the Maybelline SuperStay ink pencil in Own your empire, a perfect color match like a red to blue base.
