With Halloween just around the corner, it is defiinitely time to get those spooky, daring party costumes and beauty looks ready to both scare and bewitch! First step, one of the key additions to any creepy costume idea - whether you choose to vamp it up, go for the ghost, or transform into a wicked witch - is without a doubt a perfectly on-point lip color. Because of course, your costume has to be glamorous and betwitchingly gorgeous too!
Here are our top 5 lipstick picks for your Halloween bash...
Dark, royal purples and berry shades are totally on-trend right now as one of this season's hottest lipstick colors. Why not try a vibrant winter berry shade in a plum or black cherry to give your witch costume a perfectly kissable pout!
Black may seem like a difficult shade to pull off throughout the rest of the year, but Halloween is definitely the magical night to give this gothic and grungy color a chance! Team with minimal eye-makeup, a powdered, flawless complexion and a chilling zombie costume.
Looking for a more sweet and innocent lipstick shade for your costume idea? Opt for a ruby-toned lip stain rather than those darker shades for a pop of flirty, eye-catching color to add to any costume, whether your disguise for the evening is naughty or nice...
A run down of dark, Halloween-inspired lipsticks would be nothing without the addition of a blood red: what other color of lipstick would a vampire wear?! To add some gorgeous, blushed tones to your deep red lip color, you could go one step further with an ombré lipstick effect, allowing the wine-colored shade to bleed into a darker, cherry color or a purple.
Now that we have run down all of those intense and alluring darker shades, a Halloween lipstick list would be nothing without mentioning those pale, frosted pinks that can help light up any ethereal ghostly makeup look! Contrast a matte pale pink lipstick shade with a bold, smoky eye, and team with a floating white gown for a hauntingly beautiful party ensemble!
