Hottest Beauty Halloween Costumes 2016
Harley Quinn From Suicide Squad
Makeup challenge: break out your red lipstick and blue-colored hair spray to transform into Margot Robbie’s Suicide Squad character, Harley Quinn. Learn exactly how to DIY this look here.
Tonight’s the night: #HarleyQuinn comes to life in @SuicideSquadMovie! I made this tutorial last year (2015) and I appreciate the support so much. If you want to see the full tutorial, I have it in my bio — I teach you how to create the makeup, hair and t-shirt from the movie. It’s more theatrical than glam, but I love it! I might have to break this costume out again for #Halloween this year… #hudabeauty @hudabeauty #SuicideSquad
