Halloween Makeup That’s Good For Your Skin

No Halloween costume is complete without a stellar beauty look — but you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your skincare in order to achieve your ghoulish glam. That’s why this year, we’re kicking party store makeup to the curb and sticking to products with good-for-your-skin ingredients. Keep reading for our suggestions for lip tints that double as fake blood, face paint that won’t make you break out and colorful eyeliners you can use for Halloween and beyond. 

YSL Beauty Glossy Stain

Get the look of fake blood with a product you’ll actually want to use after Halloween. Try a deep red lip stain, like this one in the shade Rouge Laque, on the areas you want the gore. Nobody will be the wiser when you wear it as a traditional berry lip at work the next day!

You won’t wake up to dark circles from last night’s Halloween party thanks to this creamy, hydrating concealer. Infused with glycerin and hyaluronic acid, it moisturizes your under-eye area while brightening.

Maybelline New York Lip Lifter Gloss with Hyaluronic Acid

Get lips that sparkle without sacrificing moisture when you swipe on this shimmery gloss. Infused with hyaluronic acid, it plumps, hydrates and smoothes the look of lip lines. 

NYX Professional Makeup SFX Face & Body Paint Palette 

This face and body paint palette is perfect for high-drama Halloween looks. They’re highly pigmented and easy to mix to create any color you desire. You can pair them with the NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Cannabis Primer to extend the wear time and soothe and hydrate your skin.

Valentino Beauty Very Valentino Liquid Foundation

The scariest thing about Halloween — irritated skin because of a bad foundation. With Valentino Beauty Very Valentino Liquid Foundation, you won’t have to worry about that. The longwear, semi-matte formula is ultra-breathable, so you can wear it all night long without fear of smothering your skin. Plus, it has SPF 26.

Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick

To care for your lips this Halloween, a moisturizing and nourishing lipstick is essential. Not only is the L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick super pigmented, but it also has 30% rose balm and hyaluronic acid in it — which means your lips will be hydrated as you wear it.

L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick

This tinted balm has clean and 92% natural ingredients, and softens and nourishes your lips like a lip balm — but tints them like a lipstick. For a flush of color this Halloween, keep this in your bag.

Pacifica Vegan Longwear Eyeliner

These dreamy pastel liners are especially perfect for unicorn, fairy and mermaid costumes. Available in four Easter egg-like hues, the pencils contain vitamin E and carrot oil to glide on easily without tugging on your lids.

Kosas The Big Clean Mascara

Condition your lashes before popping on falsies with this castor oil-enriched mascara. The volumizing formula also contains peptides to encourage longer, fuller lashes.
