No matter what stage of Halloween planning you're in — whether you've had a game plan since August or you're still Googling ideas — there's a 95% chance you'll need some form of makeup to complete your costume. After all, what's Elphaba without her signature green pallor, or Pennywise without his creepy red eyeliner?

Ahead, we're sharing the palettes and paints we're using to achieve some of this year's most popular costumes, from Euphoria characters to Harley Quinn. The finished result will look great IRL and on the 'gram.
