Try This Kate Moss-Inspired Makeup Look for Halloween

No costume purchases required.

Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube — a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than five million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.

Halloween is right around the corner and for those of you who haven't even begun to think of a costume – or if you find dressing up to be child's play at this point in your life — then opting for a statement beauty look with the makeup products that you already have is an easy (and festive) way to go.

British makeup guru Charlotte Tilbury, whose clients include major fashion brands like Stella McCartney, Tom Ford and Michael Kors, created a starry eyed look for her longtime friend Kate Moss back in 2008. The model flaunted a shimmering gold star on her right eye to go with her celestial-themed ensemble for her 34th birthday party in London. Tilbury recreated the look on her YouTube channel using her namesake makeup line noting that "it's perfect for Halloween." (Even if you don't own any Charlotte Tilbury products, you can freestyle from your own makeup kit.) Take a style tip from Moss and pair this look with any of your star-printed pieces — or just wear your own clothes and say you're dressed as a Kiss fan. You can even go the pun-ny route by wearing a Breton top, black pants and a red scarf from your closet. Voila! You're a French kiss.
