7 Makeup Staples You Need To Create #HalloweenLooks

Don’t know yet who or what you’ll be this Halloween? Take inspiration all the Halloween look tutorials on YouTube and shop your look’s makeup essentials with a 30% cashbackon Sephora Philippines with Maya! 

#1  Finishing Powder



Finishing powder is a triple-threat product when creating Halloween looks.

It can keep your face oil-free for hours with just a few puffs, be dusted on lightly to set foundation and other makeup, and be applied heavily all over the face for a ghost-white complexion.

Kat Von D’s setting powder is especially great for those with oily or combination skin. Pat a few layers of these onto clean skin and spritz on some setting spray to keep it in place throughout the evening!

#2  Glittery Highlighter

Instead of buying a tube of glitter from your crafts shop or bookstore, reach for highlighter to fill in any shimmery areas of your target look.

Not only will it cling better to bare skin, it’s made to blend smoothly into other pigments you’ve got on.

ZOEVA Strobe Spectrum Palette

Go for ZOEVA’s blendable highlighting palette for a wider range of possible looks and spill-free touch-ups on party night!

#3  Black Liner



A black eyeliner works as a hypoallergenic, better-smelling permanent marker for your face.

Use it to line your lips, draw in details, or create elaborate lacework pattern in key areas!

3CE Super Slim Pen Eyeliner (0.9ml)

3CE’s pen eyeliner gives bigger brands like Kat Von D a run for their money in terms of staying power, which is great if you spent two hours before the party drawing on your face.

You’ll even have a great everyday liner in the bag if it lasts past Halloween.


#4  Rainbow Eyeshadows

Halloween looks call for bolder colors than your daily makeup palette may have.

Research your desired look beforehand to figure out which colors you need, then reach for individual shadow pots to keep it from becoming too expensive. Apply a primer to your lids beforehand to make even the tiniest amount of color really pop!

This one isn’t a requirement for most looks, but it works wonders if you’re doing a lot of detailing, highlighting, or drawing over solid-colored eyes and cheeks.

Sephora’s got a white pencil liner that’s great for both drawing clean lines and creating patterns that you can blend or smoke out for a softer feel.

Eyeliners are the way to go if you need cleanly applied lines of glitter in your look. Enter Sephora’s Colorful Waterproof Eyeliner collection!

No matter which look you choose to do, lips matter. Sometimes they’re part of the look, and sometimes they are the look.

What you want for your look is a lippie matte enough to serve as a base for any other glitter or paints you choose to layer over it, with the staying power to survive a snack, a sip of water, or even a smooch.

Halloween just became the perfect excuse to splurge on matte lipsticks! Take the plunge and indulge in that Everlasting Liquid Lipstick shade you’ve been eyeing.

Confidence should be the most important thing you wear to that Halloween party anyway.
