The best dark makeup products to perfect your Halloween look

The 31st October is drawing closer, which means it’s time to get your Halloween makeup routine in order.

We have put together our edit of the best dark makeup products to celebrate the spookiest night of the year, so you can look your most devilish in the easiest way possible.


Vamp up your Halloween makeup look with the PUPA Vamp! Compact Eyeshadow Duo in Dark Night. The two shades can be worn separately or blended together for a super dark makeup look to celebrate the spookiest night of the year.

The limited edition Orion Antimatter Lipstick from Illamasqua is the perfect shade of black for Halloween. A semi-matte formulation, it doesn't feel drying on the lips but instead keeps them comfortable and wears beautifully without any smudging or patchiness.

Suitable for both wet and dry application, the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Pasiphae is the most beautiful shade of green; perfect for any Halloween look. With a smooth powder formulation that melts into the lid; it's the ulimate spooky shadow.

Don't forget to finish off any Halloween look with a dash of liquid liner. Liquid liner is great as its super pigmented and long-lasting meaning it won't smudge or fade. The NYX Professional Makeup Matte Liquid Liner is perfect for creating sultry cat-eyes.

The Shiseido Essentialist Eye Palette contains 4 colours, which can be used together to create a midnight smokey eye; perfect for the spookiest night of the year.

Don't forget your nails and use the Rimmel Rita Shades of Black Nail Polish to add a finishing touch of dark to your Halloween makeup look. It dries in 60 seconds and will give you a perfect shade of black for the spookiest night of the year.

Take a dark contouring stick to create the illusion of hollow cheekbones this Halloween. Illamasqua's Contouring Gel Sculpt in Silhouette is perfect as it can be built up to a darker shade and then used lightly after Halloween for a beautiful bronze finish.

If you're wearing a lot of eye makeup this Halloween, you might find that mascara doesn't give your lashes enough oomph, which is where these falsies by Eylure and Fleur de Force come into play. They are super easy to apply and last all night, plus give incredible volume.

Add a spooky, silver blue hue to your cheekbones with the Illamasqua 10th Anniversary Beyond Powder in Frost. It can be pressed in for a spooky finish and then applied lightly with a brush after Halloween for a beautiful frosted finish.

Don't forget that any Halloween makeup look needs to be set into place to last night; which is why we love Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray. It keeps makeup firmly in place without blocking pores and doesn't disturb your makeup when spritzed on.
