Halloween is awesome. It’s the one day out of the year where you can be super spooky and no one bat’s an eyelash. You can go into a store dressed up as a witch or whatever and people will literally not think it’s weird at all.
How fun is that?
That got me thinking though: every vegan girl needs some beauty products this Halloween! Let’s take a look at 5 of my absolute favorites that you can even use year-round.
1) Nyx Matte Lipstick – $6
This lipstick comes in 45 shades, and is super cheap. But don’t be fooled. Nyx, much like Elf, prides itself on putting out quality vegan products for cheap. Furthermore, Nyx is owned by L’oreal, which isn’t vegan at all. So the fact that Nyx is sticking to its guns is a fantastic sign.
Their Goal Digger – Deep Plum shade is one of the darkest, perfect for Halloween. Looking for something brighter? Try Zen Orchid – Deep Lavender.
2) Elf Stardust Glitter Eyeliner – $4
Seriously dirt cheap, people.
This glitter eyeliner brings an added edge to your usual makeup routine, and is sure to make Halloween extra awesome! It comes in four different shades, so whatever your costume is, it’s sure to go well.
3) Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder – $30
A bit on the expensive end, this setting powder is free of animal products, and is completely awesome. It sets makeup like few other powders can. Use it for Halloween, to make sure that you’re spooky face stays put, or use it year-round.
4) Makeup Geek Gel Liner – $8
Here’s something: eyeliner in gel form is probably the best kind there is. Eyeliner pencils suck, they fade easily and they’re never as precise as we want them to me. Liquid liners also suck, because the finish makes it all look super artificial and tacky. You want a soft look that you can sharpen or blend out as you please. Sultry!
5) Sugarpill Angel Baby False Lashes – $7
Ever heard of Sugarpill? They’re this bright, cupcake palette inspired makeup brand that is worth checking out. They even have a dedicated vegan section on their website filled with nail polish, eyeshadow, lipstick and false lashes.
