All beauty girls love Halloween, aka the night you can go crazy with shadows and glitter and no-one will bat an eyelid.

Halloween is just around the corner and we’re officially excited. But nothing gets us in the mood more than seriously cool beauty products. Enter Pink Skull; the limited edition collection by ETUDE HOUSE. It’s playful, on-trend and so Instagram-worthy. 

Let’s face it, the key to a strong Halloween game is the glam moody eye, and the Lovely Skull eyeshadow palette will take your look to the next level. Containing nine shades your lids will love (from neutrals to pink tones) the pearl powders sweep on like silk to awaken the eyes with long-lasting, high-pigment coverage. Channelling 

your inner Ariana this year? Enhance the depth of your peepers further with Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara, which leaves your eyelashes looking combed, dense and fresh for up to 24-hours – fail-proof for even the most basic beauty rookies! If doll-like lashes are more your thing (hellooo, Harley Quinn costume), Curl Fix Mascara Long Lash works as an express eyelash extension by applying fibre layers to the tip of your lashes so they appear longer and fuller. We heart all waterproof mascara, but this one is also resistant to sweat and oil, under-eye smudges. Win! 

The ’90s matte lip is having a bit of a moment right now, but it’s all things millennial that are about to make a huge come back, making sheer gloss the number one thing on this season’s beauty to-try list. Go for Y2K Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan with a Juicy Couture tracksuit matched with the Twin Shot Lips Tint. It gives you the best of both worlds, with the convenient dual-pack containing a soft mousse tint that moisturises, smoothes and brightens, and a pearl tint shot that provides colour with serious shine factor. The result? Gradient lip goals. 

It’s the finishing touches that make all the difference to your outfit though, so why not try our fave of the five nail shades, Play Nail No.4? It’s a midnight mauve with a holographic finish. For the ultimate winning combo, layer this with the press-and-go Play Nail Stickers. The cool Pink Skull design and lettering include real jewel stones that will up your glam factor. 

To complete the look, go for the Colorful Scent Eau De Perfume, a floral mist with hints of vanilla and berry. It’s so enticing it practically screams “life of the party”.
