Ready to get your scare-glam on this Halloween?
Even if you’re not big on Halloween, everyone can appreciate the art of Halloween makeup. Scrolling through Instagram for inspo’ is one of our favourite pass times for this time of year, let alone spending all of our spare time recreating them ourselves. There’s a fine line between scarily glamorous and utterly horrifying and the MUA’s who manage to walk that tight rope are incredibly talented. So, here’s our list of products that we’ll be using to give scary our best go this Halloween, and just in time for you to order them this payday!
Raw and sticky sweet—just the way nature intended. Get hooked on Urban Decay’s Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette; its 12 golden neutrals include classic golds, warm ambers, and rich chocolate browns. Reach for Amber (it practically glows), create the perfect hazy, smoked-out eye with Sting (warm brown matte), or get hooked on Honey (intense gold metallic) for the ultimate ’70s statement eye. These glistening hues of smoky gold are the perfect base for an exciting, sparkly but scary Halloween look.
When it comes to Halloween lashes, the bigger the better. Oh My Lash’s Fierce Lashes are as bold as they sound, with volumising and lengthening qualities they will top off whatever scary look you’re going for.
Every spooky look need a hint (or lathering) of black. Designed to give you full control and ultra-precision, MEMI’s Expert Liner eyeliner pen imparts intense carbon black lines for extreme, long wearing definition. Designed with an innovative thin and flexible tip, expect a quick drying smudge and water resistant finish in one stroke.
Unless your dress-up doesn’t feature brows, then you’re going to need something that stays put all day long. Urban Decay’s Brow Beater Brow Pencil and Brush is the perfect weapon for any brow emergency (even when you’re on the go). This long-lasting, waterproof formula provides a smooth, even application, and the precise, microfine tip makes it easy to replicate the natural look of real hair. Better than other brow pencils, Brow Beater has a unique texture that provides the ideal laydown of colour that lasts all day and all night.
Added, exaggerated colour is everything you need for any Halloween look, so layer up with LOLA Makeup’s Bronzer. With a light-diffusing, creamy texture, it creates the perfect radiant, tanned finish. This bronzer contains tan-enhancing ingredient Tyrosine to boost the skin’s natural tanning process. As well as a protective SPF 15, the larger sized palette is designed so it can be used on the face and the body. Get your ultimate glow on.
Wunder 2 Pure Pigments are ultra- fine, highly concentrated loose colour powders that can create either a subtle wash of colour or a dramatic shimmer on the skin. We know which end of that spectrum we’ll be opting for this Halloween! It can be easily blended directly on the skin, or mixed with other shades to create an original look. Use on your eyes, lips or your face to build the most creative look that you can!
MEMI’s Millennial Eyeshadow Palette features ultra buttery matte and shimmer finishes. This range of colours is perfect for all your Halloween needs. It’s travel friendly and housed in a luxe mirror compact, perfect for topping up at your party, this palette contains a full pigment formula to create professional, long wearing looks that you can dial down or amp up. The pigment rich, blendable formula boasts longevity and blends seamlessly onto eyelids with minimal fallout.

Is there such thing as Halloween without a vamp-y red lip? We didn’t think so either. Our lipstick of choice is Buxom’s Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in shade Rogue Red. Long lasting and bold in colour, you won’t want to look anywhere else for your lip inspo. This intensely pigmented lip colour is weightless and comfortable, just what you need for a night of scare-filled partying.
More glitter, obviously. Create a sophisticated, sparkling makeup look with these mess-free, long-wearing glitters. Formulated in a gel for precise application, the chunky glitter texture applies to the skin perfectly smooth and soft to the touch. Comfortable enough to be used all over, these head to toe wonderful glitters will give you that extra pop for a Halloween makeup look that lasts.
