Halloween Beauty Contest

Let’s face it-summer is long gone, and with October, that means sweater weather, pumpkin-spiced everything and deeper coloured makeup. But it’s also an opportunity to use that makeup to become something spooky (or boo-tiful) for when Halloween rolls around! There are so many everyday makeup items in our beauty department that you can incorporate into your Halloween look you might not have even thought about. Dark red lipstick could double as vampire blood. Black eyeshadow could double as black contour for a cat or skeleton look. Eye glitter or shimmer could be placed on your face, collarbone and shoulders to make you glow like an iridescent alien. Liquid eyeliner could be used to draw on an intricate pattern for your Day-of-the-Dead makeup. If you take some time and explore our beauty department, you might even stumble upon something really cool to use for your costume (hint hint: A lip gloss by day, but glow in the dark paint under a black light or even some crazy-coloured contact lenses!) There really are no limits to your creativity here, and with that, we’re kicking off our Halloween Beauty Contest! We want you to create your best Halloween look using London Drugs beauty products for a chance to win one of two amazing Halloween beauty prize packs valued at approximately $285 each! See full contest T&Cs below. Good luck and have fun creating your Halloween beauty looks!

My hope is that people continue to enjoy and recreate this look.”
