A good costume is essential, but we like to think no look is quite complete without the proper makeup. That's why we scoured our favorite beauty resources and found 6 wicked products to add that finishing touch, and make your costume truly your own. Plus, if you're really not the costume type, stagey makeup is a easy win.

Paperself's whimsical lashes (above) add a bit of trickery, while Prada's new Candy line is quite the fragrance treat.
