6 Halloween Makeup Products You Already Own

Great news for the procrastinators out there: There’s a good chance you already own everything you need to put together a memorable Halloween makeup look. All you need is some inspiration (that’s where we come in) and creativity. Whether you’re going for a low-maintenance costume like a classic cat or want to completely transform your look with makeup, here are six products to have at the ready on October 31. 

Black Eyeliner

You can use black eyeliner to draw on cat-like whiskers or to become a button-nosed mouse. You can also use it to create cobwebs around your eyes for a witchy look or a skeleton outline. No matter what your costume is, you’ll find more than one way to utilize a classic black eyeliner.

Try: L'Oréal Paris Makeup Infallible Super Slim Long-Lasting Liquid Eyeliner 

Red Lipstick

While red lipstick is an obvious staple all year long, there’s no time like Halloween to really put the crimson shade to work. A liquid formula can turn you into a vampire or bloody bride in seconds. You can even use a red lipstick with black eyeliner and setting powder to create a zombie look.

Try: The Lip Bar Vegan Matte Liquid Lipstick in Hot Mama


Fake Lashes

Let’s be real: No Halloween look (whether purchased or thrown together last minute) is complete without long, dramatic faux lashes. Black liner and a pair of over-the-top falsies are all you need to recreate this ’60s-inspired Twiggy costume for Halloween

Try: KISS Falscara Eyelash Lengthening Wisps

Bright Eyeshadow

Halloween is the perfect time to make use of the bright eyeshadow shades you wouldn’t wear on the daily. Pair a blue smoky eye with a fierce cat eye to channel Cleopatra. You can also create a cute clown face by drawing brightly colored diamond shapes around the eyes.

Try: NYX Professional Makeup SFX Face & Body Paint

Contouring Palette

On any other day, blending your contour is of the utmost importance, but not on Halloween. A dramatic finish will transform you into any exaggerated pop culture icon or celebrity.

Setting Powder

Don’t be afraid to layer (and layer some more) your setting powder to transform into a mime, clown or, our personal favorite, a spooky ghost.
