A great Halloween costume comes down to the smallest details. And makeup plays a big role in looking the part. We’ve rounded up nine products we think will make getting the look easy as (pumpkin) pie.
Let’s face it. The vampire craze has not lost steam—especially with the last Twilight movie hitting theaters next month. Recreate Bella’s undead look with the all-in-one Fantasy Makers Wicked Look Cosmetic Kit ($4.50).
The Butterfly Effect
If blood makes you squeamish, go for the butterfly effect. The included pattern in Fantasy Makers Hauntingly Hip Stencil Kit ($4.50) makes it super easy.
Give it a Glow
Mehron Makeup Fantasy F-X Floursescent Makeup ($3.50) has neon colors that glow in the dark so you’re sure to be seen wherever you go!
Your nails will be ready for your Dia De Los Muertos party with any of the vibrant colors in the OPI So So Skullicious Mini Lacquer Set ($12.50).
All That Glitters
Spritz hair with Rusk Being Sexy Glitter Hairspray ($9, Ulta.com) for the perfect finishing piece to any outfit, from Halloween through the holidays.
Whether you’re a vampy police officer or a sexy nurse, no costume is complete without faux lashes. Ardell Wild Lash Eyelashes Breezy ($5.50) come in all shapes and sizes.
Stick With It
For a quick accessory, try Nail Bliss Halloween Appliques Web Surfer ($7). Easy to apply and so much fun. Arachnophobia aside…
