How to Make Your Halloween Cruelty-Free, Vegan…..and Spooky!



Welcome to October, friends!

I don’t know if it’s the same for you but when this month rolls around every year I get excited for one of my favorite holidays….Halloween! The chance to be someone else for a little while, be able to get some candy, and possibly scare some people just sounds so fun! So I wanted to be able to help you prepare for this extra cool holiday by listing some ways that you can make sure the fun that you are having is entirely cruelty-free.  
                                
 Find the Best Treats for the Job

There are quite a few vegan options for treats…but unfortunately quite a few tricks too. Here are a few good options of candy that you can get, and give out on the spookiest night of the year!

Airheads
Twizzlers
 Swedish Fish
Skittles
Sour Patch Kids

Thankfully this is not an exhaustive list, and there are more items that you can find that are vegan, but I thought that these were pretty popular. You also have the option to make your own treats, and that list is even longer! I have found recipes for apple and pumpkin spice treats, as well as different recipes for spooky treats that are perfect for your next Halloween party.

Here are my top picks:

Some of these I think that I just might make myself for a little Halloween party I am thinking of having this year! So yummy and spooky all at the same time!
                                     
Costumes can be Vegan!

There are two ways that this is true; one is that you make sure that your costume is vegan-friendly. The other is you can actually wear a vegan-themed costume, to make talking to people about living cruelty-free even easier!


Cruelty-Free Halloween Makeup

While you might have quite a few vegan makeup items for everyday wear, finding suitable products for your Halloween costume may prove to be a little but tricky. The website Kaylin’s Kit shows that there quite a few vegan options out there for your makeup needs:

Creamy White Makeup: For that perfect ghost or vampire look, Manic Panic and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics offer creamy white makeup.
Bright Makeup: For face paints, Monave offers two vegan palettes. For colorful lips, check out brands such as Lime Crime, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, and Manic Panic. For eyeshadows and other pigments, try Lime Crime, Manic Panic, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Pink Quartz Minerals, and Cheeky Cosmetics.
Black Lipstick: Zosimos Botanicals has a gentle option in a shade called Onyx. Many brands that specialize in colorful lipsticks also offer blacks. Check out Lime Crime, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, and Manic Panic.
Bright Hair Colors: Manic Panic offers vibrant hair colors, clip-in strips, and even wigs.

                                      

Vegan Inspired Costumes

Finally, I found some neat ideas for great vegan costumes too, so that you can get people talking about the benefits of veganism, and have a little tongue in cheek fun as well!


Check back next Wednesday 10/18 for more about vegan Halloween candy, and I hope you found this helpful! 

Happy Spooking!
