Halloween makeup is one of those things that you end up buying every year. So if you want to save some money, you'll want to know where to get Halloween makeup on sale, because you can't really rock a creepy costume without it. As makeup doesn't usually have a lengthy use-by date, you'll likely find yourself throwing out your white face paint and your fake blood before the next Halloween rolls around — making it one of those annual things you buy every fall, like a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
With Halloween makeup being such a necessity to All Hallow's Eve revellers, it makes sense that you might not want to spend an arm and a leg every autumn. Social media sites like YouTube and Instagram have seriously upped the stakes when it comes to Halloween makeup; there are tons of insane tutorials and beautifully spooky snaps to die for. However, you could argue that with all of the beauty inspo readily available at your fingertips, there's added pressure to put more effort into your Halloween costume, including your makeup.
You could get away with using your regular makeup for your costume if you're broke, but it probably won't look quite as legit as the real deal. So if you want Halloween makeup on a budget, you'll want to hit up the following stores that currently have spooktacular sales on.
