Found: 11 Non-Cheesy Makeup Kits Perfect for Halloween

If the words Halloween, makeup, and kit send nostalgic shivers down your back (or resurrect day-before Party City remembrances) you're not alone. In a word, the typical Halloween makeup kit reads cheesy. There, we said it. And even more typical, said kit warrants one use and one use only—a half-hearted, underwhelming application that's great for enhancing your costume on Halloween night but not so great for the other 364 days (or nights) of the year. Sound familiar? 

Of course, the "unnecessary" is all part of the allure of Halloween. What better time to dress, decorate, and drink in theme than the season of spook? However, with a little bit of strategy, you can actually complete your holiday beauty vibe without the use of a cheesy $3 makeup kit and with a kit that you'll love and actually want to use again—be it daily or for an extra-special night out or party. Truly, with the following Halloween makeup compilations, the possibilities are endless. Keep scrolling for 11 essential collections suitable for whatever getup you plan to rock this Halloween.
