Once you have found your favorite Halloween costume, spruce up your look with a set of our makeup basics. Professional makeup artists have tons of brushes, sponges, and colorful face paints, but all you need to create the perfect Halloween look are a few basic costume makeup items. If you are unsure of how to begin, many of our makeup kits come with basic instructions and tips for how to create the look you want.
Some good basics to have on had include face paint, spirit gum, and latex body paint. With the right prosthetics and makeup you can create almost any look you want. Begin with a simple application of foundation, lipstick, or eye shadow. For more complex costumes, you may need adhesives like spirit gum. Body adhesives can let you add prosthetic features, scars, gashes, and other body parts to your look.
Once you've decided on facial makeup, you can move your attention to hair and nails. Match your nail color to your outfit with nail polish or fake nail stick-ons. A colored hair streak or extension can add a touch of spunk to your look.
