When it comes to Halloween, whether we’re posing as a sexy cat or a full-on zombie, we tend to amp up the amount of makeup we wear.
However, just because it’s for Halloween, that doesn’t mean we have to resort to using actual costume makeup. The palettes you find at your local costume shop can end up being just as cheap and tacky as the packaged costumes they sell, and based on past experiences, I’m sure we can all agree that’s never a good look.
We suggest going for the real stuff, instead, like palettes that are pigment-packed and full of all the vibrant colors. Not only are they better quality, but they’re also worth the investment since you’ll be able to reuse them post-Halloween (unlike some of those costume store “cosmetics”).
While some of these colors may not be your choice for a typical day look, chances are most of them will come into good use at least a few times. Besides, you never know when you’ll be in the mood to rock magenta lids next.
We rounded up 10 of the best new, colorful makeup palettes that’ll have you covered no matter what your costume may be.
