It’s the day before Halloween and almost time to let loose with the fake blood and creepy costumes. But, if you still have NO idea what frightful fancy dress you’re going to adorn, don’t panic. Let your makeup do the spooking, with these Halloween beauty buys you can quickly pick up on the high-street. Here’s my favourite easy to use products for a spooktacular Halloween party look….
Elegant Touch Vampire Kiss Nails, £7.95 and HOUSE OF HOLLAND Blood Thirsty Nails, £8.99
Save yourself the time and hassle of complex Halloween nail art with these super easy glue-on nails from Elegant Touch. Their blood splattered ‘Vampire Kiss’ nails are perfect for a creepy costume upgrade. But if you’re more into glam than gore, try a ‘Blood Thirsty’ mani makeover for a spooky but sophisticated look. You can pick both of these sets up in Boots or Superdrug for Halloween ready talons in no time.
No Halloween costume is complete without a good dose of fake blood. This realistically thick option from Make Up For Ever at Debenhams is designed to look just like the real thing. Although it’s not the cheapest, you won’t need to use much to amp up your Halloween makeup or take a fake wound to the next level of blood and gore.
Halloween Make Up Tattoos Open Eye and Closed Eye, £1 each
If you’re on a tight budget this Halloween or you’re not exactly confident in your spooky makeup skills, these face tattoos from Poundland are a great option. At only £1 each, add lashings of extra fake blood (which you can also pick up at Poundland) for a cheap but creepy Halloween makeover.
This Urban Decay Palette just screams Halloween, with its paranormal shades of pigmented brights. Use for a variety of scary makeovers, from a creepy clown to a mesmerising mermaid. At nearly £40 it’s a more expensive buy to create your creepy look. But it’s worth it, for a palette full of ultra pigmented mattes and shimmers that will induce some serious makeup envy on Halloween night.
These are officially the cutest false eyelashes I have ever seen and they’re a must-have if you’re donning some ears and a tail for Halloween this year. Adorned with crystals for a flirty, feline look and under £7, you can even re-use these lashes for next year’s costume.
For seriously vampy vibes on fright night, this deep berry shade from Sleek is the perfect choice. More subtle than all out black, this rich purple shade is also on trend for Autumn/Winter so you can use it all season. It’s a brilliant budget buy at less than £5 too.
You can create a whole host of easy Halloween makeup looks with a simple liquid liner. Draw on cute cat whiskers or keep it eerie by pairing it with white face paint to create a skeleton face. This budget liner from Collection has a felt tip nip so it’s super easy to draw on your desired look. It claims to last all day too so your makeup shouldn’t wear off half way through the night.
After all of the effort you’ve made transforming yourself into a Halloween queen, you’re going to want to make sure your makeup lasts all night long. Urban Decay’s setting spray is the best I’ve tried and works wonders at keeping your makeup fresh and in place. It lasts up to 16 hours so whether you’re masquerading as a killer clown or a cuddly cat, your makeup masterpiece will be Halloween party proof.
What spine-chilling makeup look will you be creating this Halloween?
