While you’re dreaming up the perfect Halloween costume this spooky season, picking out the perfect makeup to complement your look can often leave you with products you never use again. Instead of one-and-done makeup, here are several makeup essentials that deserve a spot in your beauty bag all year long. From fake eyelashes to highlighter, create the perfect look for your Halloween ensemble while stocking your makeup bag with everyday essentials.


Cream Color Stick

Get bolder and brighter color with a cream color stick for your lips, cheeks, and eyes. A cream formula melts into your skin for a beautiful glow, whether you want rosy cheeks or rose-colored lips. Blend using a brush or your fingers.

Use your favorite color for a more prominent flushed tone. These are beauty bag essentials because of their versatility and playful nature. A creamy color stick is a fun addition to your spring and summer makeup lineup.

Faux Eyelashes

Get the drama without the hassle with faux eyelashes and waterproof eyelash glue. High-quality vegan fake eyelashes are super soft, safe for sensitive skin, and can be worn multiple times, making them a great product for any beauty bag. False eyelashes create a glamorous, feminine style no matter your costume, from classic princesses to powerful superheroes.

Lipstick + Lip Liner

Prime, line, plump, and color your lips with a hydrating lip liner and lipstick. Pick a color that not only works for your flapper girl costume but can be used for fall and winter makeup looks. Apply your waterproof lip liner as your primer and base, outlining and filling in your lips. Follow with a lipstick with plush pigmentation that lasts all night. Make sure your lips are bare before you apply to ensure optimal coverage and long-lasting wear.


Halloween is all about drama and creativity. Get your glam on and use a highlighter to add a bit of glitter and shimmer that truly reflects your inner mythical mermaid. Don’t forget to use a CC cream as a base before adding your highlighter on top.

Shimmer isn’t just for Halloween. Reflect your radiating glow year round with a bit of highlighter on your cheekbones, temples, nose bridge, and cupid’s bow. Choose a formula with hydrating ingredients like vitamin B5, vitamin E, and sodium hyaluronate to avoid a chalky or powdery complexion.

Beauty Sponge

If you’re using face paint or full coverage makeup for a more dramatic costume, a beauty sponge is your best bet for an even finish. Avoid streaks and blotchiness with a beauty sponge that gives you the control you need for an airbrushed effect. A high-quality beauty sponge is a beauty bag essential for concealer and foundation year round. It makes liquid makeup application simple, fast, and flawless.

Ultra-Black Liquid Eyeliner

Create the ultimate cat-eye, mod ‘60s look, or mimic Wednesday Addams’ goth style with waterproof liquid eyeliner. Sleek ultra-black formulas deliver the long-lasting pigmentation you need for any Halloween party. High-performance liquid eyeliner is a makeup bag must-have year round because of its versatility and easy application.

Whether you’re creating a more dramatic costumed look or styling adventurous winged tips, liquid eyeliner is a Halloween and year-round beauty essential. Pair with fake eyelashes for a more glamorous look that opens the eye area.
