The Best Dark Lipsticks for Halloween and Beyond
Wave goodbye to your favourite pink gloss and number one nude: Halloween is just around the corner and things are about to get viciously vampy.
Spook season is just as much about ghoulish makeup as it is crazy costumes, and one thing we love about October is the fact that we can rock a petrifying pout without question.
While fake blood and face paint is all fun and games, there are tonnes of luscious lippies on the market that’ll give you a dangerously daring pout.
It doesn’t get darker than this. Whether you want to channel your inner Rihanna or add the final touches to your spine-chilling costumes, black is the way to go. The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment is our favourite liquid lipstick and will give you the wickedest lip with minimal effort.
It's not quite as daring as a matte black, but it's still packed with drama. Evil Twin is the dark brown lipstick every beauty guru needs for Halloween and beyond. The rich, chocolate-brown hue suits all skin tones and is infused with a Volulip complex for a no-sting plumping effect.
It’s time to start gathering deep berry and plum hues as autumn is the perfect excuse to flaunt a pretty purple pout. Burt’s Bees bring you a gorgeous cream lippy that will keep your smackers hydrated through the colder weather.
Pair this with spooky nails to create an all over vampy look.
Give Dracula a run for his money with this deep red from Urban Decay. Bad Blood is the fan favourite that leaves lips with a devilish matte finish. It's the number one choice if you want to add a scare-worthy but sultry statement to your outfit this year.
This colour is perfect for creating a Wednesday Adams inspired Halloween makeup look, head over to our Top 10 Halloween Makeup Looks to find out how.
