Halloween is perhaps the only day of the year when no makeup rules work. Make can be absolutely anything. The only wish is eccentricity. The brighter, more intimidating and even crazy makeup you do, the better.


Be bolder! Draw something chilling blood on your lips. If you think that you need professional makeup to create this kind of makeup, then you are wrong.

What do you need for lip makeup?

You may not have decided on the design you want on your lips for Halloween yet, but whatever it is, you will definitely need the cosmetics listed below.

  • Concealer. It is needed at the very beginning of makeup. To make the pattern on the lips look bright and catchy, it is necessary to overlap the natural color of the lips. Apply the concealer over the entire surface and blend with your finger, going beyond the contours so that the lips merge in color with the skin of the face.

  • Powder. After the concealer, powder is applied to the lips. This is necessary in order to fix the concealer and allow the cosmetics to be applied afterwards to adhere without filling the cracks in the skin of the lips. Concealer and powder are the basis for drawing. Without these two means, no drawing will last long – it will be smeared in just a couple of hours.
  • Pencil. It is necessary for drawing fine details, as well as for creating the contour of the lips. We advise you to use a waterproof product: it will provide a result that will remain in its original form for a long time. By the way, you can use pencils not only for lips, but also for eyelids.

  • Eyeliner. It looks brighter and more catchy than a pencil. Also good for working out small details of the drawing. Now in the arsenal of brands there are eyeliners of all kinds of colors, from fuchsia to green. There are also many products with shimmer or metallic shades. There is where to roam if you need creative lip makeup!
  • Pomade. We advise you to use not a classic creamy lipstick, but a liquid matte lipstick. These are ultra-durable products that can stay on the lips all day long without smearing after a couple of cocktails. They are not even afraid of kisses!
