What kind of make-up do ghosts wear? Ma-scare-a….Muhaha!

Ok, so it’s that time of year when you need to brush the cobwebs out of your autumn make up bag, and Halloween provides the perfect opportunity to trial some freakishly-cool beauty trends!

Take a look at our top pick of the Halloween make-up essentials to enable you to spook the streets this year and create your own artistic, creepy or beautiful party looks!


Start by using Rimmel’s Lasting Finish 25H Foundation as a high coverage base to get an even, flawless skin.

To complete your face make-up and make it stays put all night, lightly brush on Stay Matte Pressed Powder.

Top Tip: Use a wet sponge for applying the powder to build up coverage – perfect for a flawless Halloween base!


Glameyes HD 5 Pan Eye Shadow in Golden Eye provides a great pallet for smoky, sultry eyes (whilst also doubling up to provide amazing contouring for the face).

For a dramatic eye look we love Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner in Black Black to creating an intense, precise line that will stay put all night. Or if it’s a thick or thin gel liner look you want to create, Scandaleyes waterproof gel eyeliner is purrfect for this.

For the all-important bold lip, we love Lasting Finish Kate Lipstick in her hero shade #001. Use with Exaggerate lip liner in Red Dynamite for a dramatic, statement pout.

If you want to rock the 16 hour kiss proof look, try Provocalips in Kiss Me You Fool for an intense red lip.

To nail the Halloween look, finish with a colour of your choice. We love 60 seconds nail polish in Rapid Ruby or Black Out!

Or if you prefer to add some glitz and glamour to your party look, Precious Stones Special Effects in Ruby Crush provides high coverage glitter to complete your statement nail.
