Four Makeup Brands to Complete Your Halloween Look

With Halloween just around the corner, many of us are still rushing to find the perfect costume, but what’s a perfect costume without the perfect makeup? If you ask us, the answer is not much! The night is dark and full of terrors on All Hallow’s Eve, but your makeup sure doesn’t have to be. Here are four makeup brands that every girl should try out this spook-tacular holiday.

Illamasqua: Wild and Creative

Illamasqua is a British makeup brand that specializes in bold and unique looks. With them, it’s all about experimentation and transformation. Every look they create has a story that goes with it to help create a world in which the fantasy look lives. If you check out their site you can find some great inspiration. Their Liquid Metal Creams ($27.78) are fantastic for Halloween because they are highly pigmented and can be used as eyeshadow or on the face and body. But while their products may be on the more expensive side, you can reuse them in your normal makeup routine or for a fun night out.

e.l.f.: Budget Friendly
Otherwise knows as eyes, lips, face, e.l.f. is a makeup company that has brought the beauty industry to the masses. Their products come in a range of colors but are priced very low. You can get a single eyeshadow for $3 or an entire palette for around $6-$15. If you’re doing a Halloween look that requires shades that you may never use again, definitely check out the products at e.l.f. so that you can create your look without breaking the bank.

MAC: Multi-Use

Most people know MAC for their amazing foundations, eyeshadows and blushes but don’t know them for their amazing Halloween looks. Almost every year MAC comes out with a few looks that are always creative and inspiring. The nice thing about using MAC products is that after Halloween is over you will most likely be able to use them in your everyday life. Their pigments ($21) are a loose colored powder that have multiple uses and come in a wide range of colors. Also, MAC’s paint sticks ($21) can act like a face paint for bolder looks and come in black, white, and all the colors of the rainbow.

Ben Nye: Going All Out

If you’re the kind of girl that likes to go all out, try going old school with Ben Nye. Ben Nye makeup is used by actors and professionals, so if you’re going for a very theatrical look you should definitely check out the brand. You can purchase individual products online or you can purchase one of the Halloween makeup kits for around $18 to $24. If you’re not a pro it’s okay, as the kits come with step-by-step instructions and all the products necessary.

Whether you’re Wonder Woman or Frankenstein, you’ll be sure to find the right makeup with one of these four brands. So have fun this Halloween making up your new identity, and don’t forget to get creative!
