Make Up for Ever

Considering that this cosmetics company launched in 1984 to fill a gap in the theatrical-makeup market with its long-wearing products, it should come as no surprise that the brand is a favorite among Halloween devotees. The brand is all about glammed-up ghoul transformations, but they can create almost any style you want. Full-face makeup looks range from skeleton and devil looks for guys ($60) and witches and candy skulls for girls ($60).

MAC Pro

MAC artistis like bringing their own artistic vision and inspiration to each creation, so this is the perfect place to go if you're envisioning a costume that requires extra artistic flair. And, of course, the brand is all about a wide range of colors and highly pigmented products, which means you can go bold—in a good way.

Rouge NY

Law & Order: SVU alum Stephanie March and makeup artist Rebecca Perkins teamed up to open a one-stop makeup salon last year and since Perkins has a background in F/X makeup, it’s a no-brainer for the brand to now offer Halloween services since its recent opening.

Ricky’s NYC + Revolver Salon

We know, Ricky’s is usually your first stop for a last-minute getup. But you can actually plan ahead and book an appointment at the local chain (via a Halloween costume concierge) for a makeup look that won’t scare off your bank account. Book the Bloodcurdling Bronze package ($45), which includes a 45-minute makeup application by a professional artist. And if you are in need of a fun wig to complete your look, wig stylists are available to make your weave look fierce.

Get the look
Candy Skull, makeup by Nicole Pascual, wig styling by DavedScissorhands; $45 for 45-minute makeup application, $150–$250 for wig styling.

If you book your appointment now, hair stylist Yoshie Sakuma will work your mane into any style for $50 (normally $85).

Wonderland Beauty Parlor

In 2005, Michael Angelo opened this whimsical space—decked out with glittery floors and Barbie-doll decorations—as an alternative to stuffy high-end salons. Ladies and gents alike can make an appointment to get their Halloween makeup perfected by Angelo, who's Halloween makeup strengths live on the glam side of freaky. Using long-lasting products from MAC and Kryolan, Angelo knows how to make your ideal Halloween creature come to life.

Patricia Field Salon

The stylist’s eponymous boutique has been a go-to for eccentric threads and accessories since opening in 1966. The shop is also home to a full-service salon, offering wig styling, perms, and hair coloring using Manic Panic’s signature colorful dyes, and will push the envelope even further for Halloween. Walk in or book in advance to get a customized makeup application ($150). And while it’s possible to go pretty here, you’re better off opting for something more intricate and outré, such as a Temptu airbrush Day of the Dead skull ($150).

Day of the Dead skull makeup, $150.

  1. 306 Bowery, (between Bleecker and E Houston Sts), 10012

Ramy Spa

Although it’s dubbed a spa, this airy studio specializes in just two things: eyebrow sculpting ($120 for an initial consultation, $85 thereafter) and makeup applications ($100–$500) using owner Ramy Gafni’s eponymous cosmetics line. Those looking for shock factor should request Amanda Grau ($100), who can whip up realistic wounds and scars, or Jason Brook ($100), who works with horror makeup to create zombies and kooky characters such as the Mad Hatter. If your costume is more glam than ghoulish, ask for Gafni; his services cost more ($200), but it’s worth it for his expertise.

Zombie makeup, $100.

If you ask people, they’ll always have something fun to share with you about their Halloween experiences. Well, that’s the beauty of the festival.


So, what’s your idea of a Halloween Mobile App that can contribute to this frenzy? - http://bit.ly/1sdyluO
