Don't Forget the Makeup!

The biggest aspect of the Halloween holiday is of course, costumes.  For children it's the fun of dressing up and going out trick-or-treating; for adults a costume makes up the character or "thing" they become for a night out with their friends clubbing or going for that 1st prize win at costume parties. Halloween costumes are all fine and good, but what makes a costume complete is the costume makeup.  Even though many costumes today have masks as part of the look, many rely on accessories such as makeup to put the finishing touches on their costume.  And it's definitely not your mothers makeup!

Halloween makeup kits are so easy to apply since most are geared toward your specific costume.  Clowns, devils, vampires and witches are just a few costumes in which makeup kits are easy to apply.  Instructions on how to apply the makeup is included in each kit and easy to follow. So before you just throw on a mask, ask yourself if makeup would be a better alternative to give your costume the edge you're looking for!
