Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci

What if Mona Lisa comes straight out of the painting? If you are getting excited about this idea, then give yourself a chance to disguise yourself as one of the most famous masterpieces of Leonardo Da Vinci on which he worked for over twenty years. All you’ll need is a black flowy dress for the costume. With that, you’ll need a no-makeup look and will have to keep your face very simple. However, you’ll need some concealer and base to get the skin tone similar to what is shown in the painting, and with the help of highlighter, you can highlight the areas of your face where the light is reflecting. For the hair, backcomb your hair at the back and part the front portion of your lock from the middle. With a curler bring that curly look to the hair on your sides. Moreover, if you want to transform the whole look into a scarier one, then you can also use black sclera contacts that are easily available online. Finesse your look with a DIY vintage frame and carry it with yourself. 

Girl with A Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer

This painting is one of the most realistic-looking pieces of art from 1665 by Vermeer. There have been debates on whether Johannes has used a pre-photographic device- Obscura camera to capture the image. However, the girl is unknown. Give life to this painting by impersonating this girl with a pearl earring. For starters, you’ll need a basic white blouse and brown long coat. For the head, get an oriental turban in sky blue and dust colour. Complete your look with light make-up and red blush on both cheeks and glossy red lipstick. Don’t forget those famous pearl earrings. If you don’t have one, then you can find it from any artificial jewelry shop. In the last but not the least use blind white contact lenses for all Halloween's Eve touch.
