Group of people in witch costumeIt is the time for Halloween parties again. Costumes need to be ready unless you plan to resort to those ready-made, mass-produced options at your local store. There is nothing wrong with them if you are pressed for time, as long as you have the look going for you.

How, then, do you master that Halloween look? Here are three essentials.

BB Cream

Whether you are heading to a night party or a day event, you will need a heavy-duty foundation and BB cream to keep your skin looking flawless under harsh lights.

For a day event, a high SPF BB cream you can get from online vendors such as Bali Body will do wonders in hiding imperfections, while your night event might require for a mattifying foundation that will keep the shine off your face when smiling for cameras.

Vampy Lipstick

What is Halloween without a little grunge to your look? This is the perfect time of year to experiment with bold lipstick choices, such as a very dark, almost black lipliner to accentuate the outline of your lips. You may also choose a creamy matte formula for a long-lasting look.

How about a grey or blue colour that goes with your costume? Anything goes on Halloween as long as you do not overdo it. The trick is to be unafraid of a little mess. Have you ever seen a werewolf with her clothes and hair all polished to perfection?


Along with your lipstick, your eyeliner defines the look you are going for. Go for a bold choice, such as a shade that complements your dark lips. If you want fiery colours for your eyeshadow, go ahead with a dark eyeliner pencil.

A pencil is great for that messy look, as long as the product is blendable and there is harmony between your eyeliner and lipstick.

Halloween parties allow you to have fun while donning an unexpected costume. Make the most of the night by having your makeup on point.
