Halloween Makeup Ideas 2020
Creams & Greases
If you need full-face or even full-body makeup, then using a cream, grease, or water-activated makeup is an absolute must-have. There could be plenty of reasons why you need full-body makeup. Whether your look is as gruesome as a killer clown or undead zombie, or as magical and otherworldly as a fairy or unicorn, professional-looking makeup can take any costume to a whole new level of awesome. And the best part is that you can find makeup like this (and so much more) when you shop Spirit Halloween’s selection of makeup and accessories.
Cream and grease makeup both have their own unique characteristics, which makes them useful for different situations. Maybe you’re new to the world of makeup, or maybe it’s been a while since you’ve used it. Either way, if you’re not sure exactly what the difference is between water-activated, grease, and cream makeup, then no worries--we’re here to help!
• Cream Makeup: Cream makeup applies with fingers or sponges, non-smudge varieties. Creams are a great choice for beginners and pros alike because it’s easy to use and it stays in place all day long. The key is to use a setting powder or setting spray—and if you don’t have any on hand, using baby powder works just as well!
• Grease Makeup: Grease makeup can be a great option for anyone who’s looking for affordable, easy to blend makeup. It provides a thick, all-over coverage that will make your makeup look as convincing as ever. However, grease makeup does tend to smudge more than cream makeup if you use too much—so make sure not to overdo it!
• Water-Activated Makeup: Like the name suggests, this makeup comes in a pan and is activated by adding water. This makeup can be applied with a paint brush, sponge, or even just your fingertips. Water-activated makeup is great for beginners (just add the right amount of water!) because it’s easy to apply and easy to clean up.

Complete your costume look just in time for the next big Halloween party when you grab a costume kit from Spirit!

We also have kits for officially licensed characters like Wonder Woman, Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas, Pennywise from It, and many more!
Beards & Facial Hair
Maybe you don’t have time to grow out a beard in time for Halloween, or maybe you just can’t grow one at all. Either way, you can complete your bearded costume in a matter of seconds with a fake beard from Spirit! Whether you want to sail the seven seas as the deadliest pirate captain, a cowboy with a strong mustache, or even a bearded lumberjack, you can find the perfect facial hair for your costume right here at Spirit.
Would it really be Halloween without a couple of scares? Make your costume as dark or as gruesome as you’d like when you use our selection of fake blood. You can use theatrical blood to make it look as though blood is dripping from your mouth, eyes, or any open wound. To create a more scab-like effect for a fake scar, use blood gel. Blood gel offers a thicker consistency that will stay more in place. From blood capsules and spray-on blood to all-in-one blood kits, you’ll find all the fake blood you could possibly need when you shop Spirit Halloween’s selection of gruesome, bloody makeup.
You don’t have to be a makeup expert to use special effects! You can create a realistic look all your own when you use any of the appliances found at Spirit Halloween. Make your zombie costume look even more gruesome with scars and scabs detailing your arms, or make it look as though half of your face has been burned off to really make people jump. These fun and unique special effects allow you to customize them to fit your own makeup needs, and in the end may just become the coolest part of your costume.
Fake Eyes & Lashes
They say eyes are the windows to the soul, so why not make yours the center of your costume? Make your eyes POP when you shop Spirit’s awesome selection of eye makeup and false lashes! Show off your eyes with dramatic, fan-like lashes, or become absolutely magical with rainbow-colored unicorn lashes. Or you can grab some shimmery eyeshadows to make your look as sparkly as your costume. No matter what style you’re going for, you’ll be able to bring your whole look together when you shop eye makeup and lashes at Spirit Halloween.
