Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands for Halloween

October 26 /2021


It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And while we know Christmas fans will disagree on this one, we just can’t deny our serious love for Halloween! Between the fall weather that makes curling up to an old classic irresistible (Hocus Pocus, anyone?), to the stellar excuses to indulge in candy (Reeses’s pieces for the win) – we whole-heartedly love this holiday. If you’re planning on dressing up and going all out this year, we’re with you, babe! On top of that, we’re here to tell you that even Halloween-appropriate makeup can receive the cruelty-free stamp of approval we *so* adore. So while you’re furiously planning what your glam is going to look like on Halloween night, let us make a few suggestions. Hit pause on that classic re-run you’ve watched 3 times this week, and check out these cruelty-free makeup brands for Halloween!

E.l.f. Cosmetics: for Halloween makeup that won’t break the bank.

First up on our list of Cruelty-free Makeup Brands for Halloween is none other than the tried & true line of E.l.f. cosmetics.

So many babes love this brand for its affordable makeup options and for its inclusive range of color shades. From the tools, you’ll need to create the perfect holiday look to the makeup itself, E.l.f. seriously has you covered. We love reaching for their shadows and lipsticks when we need colors that we don’t necessarily use all year-’round. You know, like that deep crimson shade we used to be Morticia Adams last year. Opting for an E.l.f. product means you won’t spend a fortune on one-time items. And, that you’re still making a cruelty-free choice. Talk about a win-win, right?

Item not to miss: Check out E.l.f. cosmetics for their liquid glitter eyeshadow. Highly pigmented, blendable, and *way* easy to apply. All you need is one swipe across those cute peepers. You’ll instantly love how this little gem takes your Halloween look to the next level.

Ben Nye: for theatre-approved looks that will make you look like a Halloween makeup pro.

If you haven’t heard of Ben Nye (not to be confused with the science guy), we’re about to put you on to a makeup brand that is quite literally like no other.

Let’s just say, this line of makeup is truly for the pros. Artists, educators, and beauty junkies worldwide reach for Ben Nye products to create the ultimate makeup looks, and so can you!

Item not to miss: It might not be as scary as the products we just mentioned above. However, every babe needs to try Ben Nye’s banana powder. This product is highly coveted as an unreal undereye setting powder. Apply it over your favorite concealer for a brightening effect, and to prevent creasing throughout the day or night!
