This Genius Tutorial Shows You How to Become a Snapchat Filter for Halloween
When Snapchat’s new filters were introduced a few weeks ago, we’re guessing you were probably bombarded with hilariously weird snaps of super scary skeleton faces, googly heart eyes and oh ya, people puking up rainbows. Sadly, those have now been replaced by different filters (because you can only send the same selfie so many times), but if you want to keep the social media memory alive, we recommend you look to beauty vlogger Brittany of GettingPretty for a little bit of Halloween costume inspiration.
In a quick and easy video, Brittany immortalized that infamous, rainbow filter by transforming it into a hilarious (but also totally trippy) beauty look. She starts by making her eyes appear bigger with the help of white eyeliner (a technique used by many a makeup artist). She then applies her base face like normal but makes sure to go heavy on the blush since the filter makes your cheeks look especially rosy. Finally, Brittany uses face paint to create that rainbow effect and makes it sparkle by highlighting it with a little bit of white liner. And voila!
If you’re looking to turn this into a group costume, we vote you rock this colorful makeup while your buds create looks that resemble the heart eyes, the old person transformation, the cyborg and since it’s Halloween, maybe even that super terrifying demon face. To anyone hoping to finally be featured on your local snap story, this is pretty much a guaranteed way to achieve that goal.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
