Highlighter Focus: Halloween Highlighters

Highlighters are one of my addictions so when Halloween comes around there are some really fun ones to play with from different cosmetic lines.  There are all kinds of colors and textures with all kinds of embossed scary creatures on them like skulls, ghosts, skeletons, pumpkins, and witches in all kinds of different colors like ghostly white with different lavender, pink, and blue shifts of color that have an ethereal glow that can be applied to Halloween makeup to enhance your scary glow for trick or treating and Halloween parties.

Some of the brands that haves some fun Halloween highlighters to try in different shades are Makeup Revolution Beauty, Revolution Beauty, Bitter Lace Beauty, Lunatick Labs Cosmetics, Black Moon Cosmetics, Sugar Pill, Jeffrey Starr, Vanessas Vanity, Ritual De Fille, Touch Of Glam Beauty, and Kylie Cosmetics just to name a few.  Makeup Revolution and Revolution Beauty have the “Ghost Lights” Vivid Baked Highlighter and “Haunted Lights” pressed powder highlighters with an embossed ghost and skull with crossbones on them in a glowing ghostly sheer white shade that isn’t chunky or glittery that is buildable, pigmented and smooth that you can use to enhance even a light fairy look or a ghoulish witch with heavy face makeup for $6.00 at Ulta.  They also have 3 “Halloween Skull” Liquid Highlighter Drops in the shades “Ghosted” (a ghostly white shimmer), “Blood Of My Enemies” (a blood red shimmer), “Creature Of The Night” (a light beige-gold shimmer) all in a glass skull bottle with dropper for $6.00.  Also, they have 3 “Halloween Eyeball” Pressed Powder Highlighters in bright multi colored and creepy eyeball packaging in the shades “I See You” (a light pink shimmer), “Eye Scream” (a ghostly white shimmer), “Terrif-Eye” (a flesh colored shimmer) for $7.00 each.
