The struggle to find an original Halloween costume is real—but thank God for the Kardashians.
Kylie Jenner is our Halloween costume of choice this October, for obvious reasons. The youngest member of the Kardashian has been changing her hair on the daily for years now, giving us dozens of different version of herself to copy. Throw on a skin-tight dress, a bright green wig and pile on the false lashes and you’ve got yourself a costume.
Here’s how to be 7 different versions of Kylie for Halloween.

Young, naive Kylie
Ah, the final days of Kylie's baby face (may it rest in peace). To create Kylie's former self for Halloween, you're going to need a hefty, thick wig of hair with blunt bangs to hide behind. Complete the look with a nude lipstick (and perhaps some concealer to make your top lip extra thin), a touch of blush on the cheeks, and a plain, motherly white shirt.

Clearly this is when Kylie first learned about the power of extensions—but forgot that they should be cut. Or at least styled. Nonetheless, grab some blue extensions from your local costume shop, clip them in, and let 'em flow free. Then, go crazy with the lip pencil. Finally, you'll need a thick strip of fake lashes, a black T-shirt and a red apron.

If you want full-on stylish Kylie, this is your girl. Once Kylie started to dabble in her many colored hair extensions (and, hey, release an entire line of them), she had really hit her stride. To get this look, you're going to need a pastel wig. (Don't bother trying to color your whole head with spray-on color unless you have light hair.) For the makeup look, you simply need your trusty Spice Lip Pencil, a set of false lashes, and a brow pencil. For clothing, get a great brown leather jacket and some gold jewelry, and you're good to go.

Kylie with Bangs
Kylie shocked us all and brought back her bangs (although clearly fake—she loves a great wig), but we enjoyed this nod to her younger days. For this look, a costume wig actually works really well. Play up your lower lip more than your upper lip with the lip pencil. (Oddly, she didn't go as heavy; the critics must have been getting to her.) Then draw on a killer cat-eye with liquid liner and finish the look with a subtle bronze shadow. And, of course, don't forget your intricate dress.

This version of Kylie is the true head-turner of the bunch. Go for extra-long green extensions—or a pastel green wig to make things easy—and a skin-hugging white dress. Carefully draw on your lips and trace those brows, then add just a touch of body glitter to your collarbone.
Lastly, you can be blond Kylie. You need to be just a little bit brassy and slightly too orange to pull off this look, so go heavy on the self-tanner. Ah, Kylizzle—gotta love her! To get this hair just right, get a blond wig and darken the roots with black hair chalk. The rest of your look will be traditional KyKy with a Spice lip pencil, fake lashes, and just a bit of blush on those orange cheeks.
