Halloween is a mere two weeks away — and that means it's time to stop what you're doing, and really THINK about what you're going to dress up as this year.
And if you're a beauty-lover thinking about scary shit in 2017, you inevitably think of one thing: face masks. Because for some reason, skin care got TERRIFYING this year, which is bad news for the easily-spooked, but great news if you're looking for a Halloween costume that doubles as facial hydration.
To be clear: I'm not saying you SHOULD wear these masks as Halloween lewks — you should only ever wear face masks as long as the directions tell you to. But if you're looking to get ~gorgeous~ while also looking as scary as possible, give one of these 9 accidentally terrifying masks a try.
The Hanacure multi-action treatment mask, $29
You've definitely seen the Hanacure mask ($29, Hanacure) on Instagram — every influencer worth their salt has posted selfies of this mask warping their features as it dries. While this mask may make you look like a horror movie character as it dries, the results cannot be argued with — this mask gives me the best skincare results I've ever seen outside of a doctor's office.
KNC collagen-infused lip mask, $25
Made famous by Emma Stone, this massive lip mask ($25, KNC Beauty) could be the ultimate Halloween costume for a ~deep sea mutated mermaid~ (which is my life goal). This lip mask promises to soothe, de-chap, and plump lips, all while making the lower half of your face look like Patrick Star from Bikini Bottom. Score.
GLAMGLOW Gravitymud firming treatment, $69
GLAMGLOW's classic metallic mask ($69, Sephora) is spooky robot weirdness that also leaves your skin feeling refreshed, firmed, and glowing. It also comes in Sonic blue, green, and gold — so no matter what ~spooky scary~ color scheme you're sticking to, these lil pots of skincare magic can help.
Neutrogena light therapy acne mask, $30
If you want to look like a badass robot for Halloween — which is always, let's be honest — this LED light therapy mask from Neutrogena ($30, Amazon) may do the trick. The special red and blue lights help reduce redness and kill bacteria that cause acne. Also, you can wear it and kind of feel like sexy Daft Punk.
