Tricks and Treats

15 Sep

It’s probably obvious that we love Halloween, a holiday that gives us an excuse to wear tons of makeup and glitter. In fact, we’re sooooo excited about Halloween, we’re going to share some holiday themed beauty products!

Treat: Covergirl Eye Enhancers Kit in Dazzling Metallic

Pants calls this the “candy corn” eyeshadow kit. In fact, she bought it to wear with her candy corn costume that never quite happened (She ended up being the Fruit Stripe Gum zebra, Yipes. Again). The orange and yellow are both more vibrant in person and are metallic without glitter fallout. These colors are great for fall.

Trick: Do a candy corn eye by putting yellow on the lid, orange in the crease and using a white on the brow bone.

Treat: Make Up For Ever eyeshadow in Pumpkin

Treat: If you’re looking more for a bright orange than a pumpkin orange, then try Tarina Tarantino’s Electric Butterfly Fashion Collection.  Pants has the eyeshadow, which can be worn blindingly bright or more muted if blended well.

Treat: NYX Slim Pencil in Pumpkin

Treat: Estee Lauder Perfect Lipstick in Perfect Pumpkin (This one must be discontinued because it’s not available on the brand’s website.)

OK, so looking like a pumpkin isn’t your thing. You’d rather smell like a pumpkin, huh? We’ve got that covered too.

Bath & Body Works has all kinds of products available in Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. We’ve spotted the soaps and candles in the stores, but are still waiting for the lotion. We’re not sure if because it’s considered a “classic scent,” that means it’s only available online. If so, then BOOOOOOO Bath & Body Works.

Treats: Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin lotion and soap

Philosophy has some Halloween themed products as well. The Trick or Treat sets come with Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple products. It’s available in a shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath set, or a Lip Shine duo set.

Treat: Philosophy Lip Shine Duo in Trick or Treat

Treat: The shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath also comes in I Love Candy Corn:

Treat: And there’s a Bobbing for Apples set (Red Apple, Green Apple & Caramel Apple):

Back in the day, wet N wild would always have Halloween makeup at the local drug store. Lots of blacks, purples, metallic rainbow eyelashes and spiderweb nail decals. Check out your local drug stores to see what kinds of special Halloween makeup they may have in stock.

If you want to celebrate Halloween with your nails there are SO many options!

Treat: OPI Go Goth

Treat: China Glaze Awakening

Treat: We happen to think Illamasqua’s Fall Collection is perfect for Halloween.

Treat: Sephora by OPI Halloween Collection. We Glimmer & Shimmer girls really love the names of this collection.

Trick: If you want to add animal stripes or spots to one of these colors for a special Halloween look just use a nail art pen.
