Talk about mask magic…
No matter whether you’ve rocked a Kardashian sister, Britney in the red latex jumpsuit or Cher circa Sonny in your past, there are a ton of Halloween costume options to choose from this year, especially if Kylie Jenner is your pick. Calabasas’ wealthiest 21 year old just Insta-announced she’s launching a Kyle Cosmetics Halloween collection replete with a mummy-themed eye shadow palette, a series of highlighters and a vampire-inspired lip kit in shade ‘Bite Me.’ Regardless of who you choose to impersonate for the night, one thing is guaranteed, your Halloween face needs a mask to prepare and repair from the bewitching hour’s heavy duty makeup, sugary treats, cocktails and lack of sleep.
