5 Frighteningly Good Halloween Makeup Collections

Including an actual Hocus Pocus range.

Halloween: you either love it and go wild for it, or you're just not fussed. Either way, this year we all need a little excitement to keep our spirits up, and what better way than to embrace the spookiest season of the year?! 2020 has been pretty terrifying, so we may as well get on board with the one day we can actually celebrate a good scare. What's more, these makeup brands have launched Halloween collections especially for us to enjoy, meaning just one more reason to pick out a costume, have a friend over, and have a marathon of scary movie watching while being safe and socially distanced.

Perhaps the most exciting launch I’ve seen is Colourpop Cosmetics Hocus Pocus range, which is inspired by everybody’s favourite '90s classic. Products aside, the packaging is absolutely incredible, and make picking something up an absolute must. However, Colourpop is notoriously hard to get hold of in the UK, so you may have to fork out for U.S. shipping for this one.

If you can’t quite justify the cost, I’ve found a few other great options to celebrate on October 31, which you can find below along with more details about Colourpop’s incredible Hocus Pocus range.

Happy Halloweening!

BH Cosmetics

BH Cosmetics has dropped its Drop Dead Gorgeous Collection on Beauty Bay. The four-part collection features two very Halloweeny palettes, along with a blood red brush set and some glitter blood. And with everything under £20, you can pick up more than one piece!

Makeup Revolution x SFX

The Halloween SFX Collection by Makeup Revolution consists of just three pieces, but they're all under £6 and have everything you need to make a creative Halloween look if you love this time of year. There's the Ultimate face Paint palette, the Bloody Spray, and the Scar Putty.

Colourpop x Hocus Pocus

Perhaps the most exciting of the bunch, Colourpop Cosmetics has just created an amazing Hocus Pocus-inspired collection, with bold reds, glitters, and some INSANE packaging.
