Halloween will be upon us soon enough and this is exciting for us makeup junkies. After all in order to achieve a good makeup look , you’ll need the right products to achieve it.
So while you figure out your costume for Halloween here’s some products you can get your hands on, without further ado here’s our humble list.
Must have makeup products for Halloween :
Before the paint comes on, don’t forget the basic rule! Primer is a must. Invest in a good one, if you’ve yet to do so. We say get your hands on either one of these primers.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer
A primer that guarantees moisture and hydration up to 24 hours, along with its uber light texture.. we think its perfect. What makes it even more special it doesn’t have that greasy feel when applying and dries within seconds! Alternatively try brands like Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer or even Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer.
Primers aside, brushes is another important tool that many tend to take for granted. There are tons of brushes each of which has their own function, from the brushes for eyeshadows to blusher and the works. Bear in mind, makeup brushes can be a little on the pricey side especially when they are a proper set!
We reckon trying out Zoeva’s complete set of 15 brushes! A cheaper option would be the Sephora set, which would also do the trick.
The brushes are designed with natural and synthetic bristles. Knock yourself out, each brush helps you apply makeup not only on your eyes but face too! Look at it this way, the higher the quality of brush used, the easier the application! That and also your skin will be uber thankful.
Then comes the pout! Are you feeling glossy or matte like? It all depends on the look you’re going for. The most important thing though is to ensure your lips are nice and moist and doesn’t feel dry. As for colours, NYX, Kat Von D and Urban Decay would be perfect for that Halloween vibe as they have plenty of colours to pick from. The usual bright ones to some pretty dark shades.
Our favourite would be the *drumroll* you guessed it…
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick
These beauts come in 40 different colours. Need we say more? These 40 shades come in three different finishes – satin-matter, glimmer and metallic. P.S. they do not have parabens, sulphates, and phthalates.
Now onto the peepers. Nothing beats bright creamy colour eyeshadows that or even dark ones. Entirely up to you. You don’t need to go all out to get the branded ones, as even Maybelline has some pretty good ones to offer.
We think Tarte’s Chrome Paint Shadow Pot and Sephora Colourful eyeshadow is pretty good!
Flutter those lashes with a pair of dramatic falsies! When it comes to lashes we aren’t that picky, so do check out what Sephora has to offer.
So there you have it our top 5 must have products, of course there are plenty more items one would need, but we decided to stick with the basics.
With this go forth and have a spooktacular time dressing up.
