It's 8:00 pm, October 31, 2017.  You're currently sitting on the couch, waiting patiently for your food to arrive. The doorbell rings, you jump up, open the door, look down, and see trick-or-treaters. You send them on their merry way, walking back to your throne of blankets and popcorn just as your girlfriend calls. On the other end, you hear muffled chatter just when your friend demands, "We're going out tonight, no questions, I'm picking you up in an hour-by ready!" The phone clicks.  

You hurriedly tear your closet apart, finding a black catsuit (aka. black leggings and a tee), heels, and some accessories hiding in your closet from last year.  Now, all you need is the makeup to tie your look together! Whether you're a cat, bat, witch, or a mouse (duh!!) this is your starter pack to a successful fright night, even if it's totally last minute.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

This brush-tip liquid eyeliner pen is what you'll need to create your wings, whiskers, and more for the night. The tip of the pen is precise enough for the most minute details, and it's a lifesaver when you need to blend your false lashes.  Don't worry, the liner is waterproof and smudge-proof, so it will last no matter how much you may be dancing.

Lunatick Cosmetic Labs CONTOUR PALETTE

Lunatick Labs Cosmetics Contour Book

This contour book goes way beyond any other. Complete with twelve contour and highlight shades, at first glance, it seems intimidating and a bit strenuous, but no need to stress. Grey tones are great for hollowing out features or creating shadows, while blush and bronze tones can be used to add pigment to the cheeks, or underneath the eyes for an undead look.
