Here's How to Use Your Regular Makeup for Halloween
As an adult, the only thing that's really spooky about Halloween is adding up how much you actually spent on your look. We can't comment on how much you spent on that costume, but you can actually use your regular makeup for Halloween — as long as you're willing to get creative. That purple glitter Stila eyeshadow you impulsively bought? Yep, it's the same color as a unicorn's mane. And that Fenty liquid eyeliner you got after seeing it all over Instagram? It's your favorite for doing cat-eyes, and as it turns out, perfect for drawing whiskers since you're dressing up as an actual cat.
Here, we've rounded up nine makeup products to use this Halloween instead of wasting money on all new stuff.

Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Supernova
On any given day, this Milk Makeup stick gives you a killer holographic highlight that you can see form outer space. That's what makes it the perfect product to use when you decide to go as an alien this year.
Ardell Magnetic Lash Accents
Magnetic lashes deserve a slow clap. Since you don't need to adhesive glue to apply them, it's simple to use them multiple times because they don't get sticky.
Fenty Beauty Flywear Longwear Liquid Eyeliner
Use Fenty's long-wear liquid eyeliner to do cat-eye eyeliner, and on Halloween, to turn yourself into an actual cat. The smudge-proof formula is ideal for drawing whiskers that won't melt off mid-night.
Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette
Yes, the mystical theme of Urban Decay's palette screams "Halloween," but with 19 shades in various finishes, it's perfect for creating eye makeup looks all 365 days of the year.
NYX Cosmetics Suede Matte Lipstick
With 24 bold and subtle shades to choose from plus an under-$10 price tag, chances are you have a stash of these NYX velvety matte lipsticks. Consider Halloween a perfect opp to break them out.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner
This might look like just another on-trend red eye makeup product, but we see fake blood. Use it to add gore to this year's costume. The super-pigmented eyeliner comes in a whole slew of other colors that can easily help bring your Halloween vision to life.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette
Anastasia's palette is full of shades that are meant to be mixed and matched on your lips. However, the super-pigmented, matte finish formula of the lipsticks makes this product great for face painting, too.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation
Designed to give skin an airbrushed finish that's waterproof, it's safe to say that if this full-coverage foundation doesn't get cakey on a sweaty summer day, it'll hold up during any Halloween party.
Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow
Stila's sparkly eyeshadow comes in 16 colors and gives you all the sparkle you could possibly need without any fallout. One layer adds a bit of shimmer to your lids, while two layers will make you look like a walking disco ball.
