According to Refinery29, Pinterest searches for “giraffe makeup” are up by 1200% this year. Random right? For some odd reason giraffe’s are in and the aesthetic is all in how you do your makeup.  
The makeup look that stood out the most, based on Pinterest searches, was by Nicole Renard (@nicole_thenomad). Her makeup alone is the focal point of her costume. Feel free to add your own twist by throwing on a cute giraffe onesie or cute dress that goes with the color scheme.
