5 Makeup Pigments We’re Obsessed With for Halloween
Makeup pigments are our secret weapons when it comes to nailing Halloween makeup looks simply because they get the job done with very minimal effort and product. These loose powders have tons of payoff and are super versatile. And since you probably already have a ton of other makeup that will work for Halloween, pigments are a great addition to your stash.Ahead, we’ve rounded up our five current favorites that we guarantee will change your Halloween makeup game — whether you choose to go as a fairy, ice queen, comic character or absolutely anyone (or anything!) in between.
For a gorgeous golden aura, we highly recommend a powerful pigment like the Mehron Precious Gem Powder in Topaz that will last for hours on end. We love how pigmented this powder is and how pretty and warm it looks on every complexion.
If you’re looking to channel a Gatsby-esque makeup look this Halloween, look no further than this pigment. It has a beautiful glittering gold sparkle that can be worn loosely on the face or packed onto the lids.
The Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Shadow in Metallic Dusty Rose by Stila is our favorite product for a gorgeous fairy-like finish no matter what kind of Halloween look you’re going for. Apply this as a highlight onto your cheekbones, down your cupid’s bow and on your brow bone for the most iridescent glow.
To channel your inner 80’s this Halloween, our go-to neon pink pigment for the season is L’Oréal Paris Magic Infallible Pigment in 1st Base. This stuff is not for the makeup weak, but it can be used to create a gorgeous eye look or a hot neon cheek.
For a mermaid-like finish, Issa by Colourpop is the blue-purple pigment of our dreams. With just one swipe, this duo-chromatic pigment is perfect for a wild smoky eye or an out-of-the-box lip color (when mixed with some gloss or balm!).
