These Are the 10 Best Brands for Halloween Makeup, Hands Down

As far as my everyday makeup routine goes, I would use the word "minimal" to describe it. Lately, I've sworn by a couple of products that take me only a few minutes to apply. I start with Giorgio Armani's Face Fabric Foundation ($49) and a little TMF Vegan Dream Concealer ($47). Then I move on to whatever mascara I'm using at the moment, add a little Kosas Cosmetics Weightless Lipstick in Rosewater ($28), and I'm out the door. It's quick, easy, and (yes) minimal. That all changes, however, when it's a special occasion, like my birthday, New Year's Eve, or Halloween… especially Halloween. 

After all, October 31 is the perfect opportunity to go all out and experiment with texture and color. But with bold, and what we'll refer to as "high-key" makeup, comes the opportunity for creasing, flaking, and feathering. That's why we forgo low-quality Halloween palettes (which could be bad for your skin, btw) in favor of high-impact products from tried-and-true brands.
