Autumn is my favourite time of year. The air has a distinct smell; the crisp chill and the shorter days bring a cosiness that’s unique to autumn. It also brings Halloween, and I love any excuse to dress up. My kids also love dressing up; it’s one of their favourite times of the year. This year, with me being vegan, I have decided to find some products to create vegan-friendly Halloween looks. 

Interestingly many face paints contain lanolin which is derived from sheep’s wool. It’s created in the sebaceous glands. This means that many face paints are not vegan-friendly. It’s not all doom and gloom though, I have put together a list of vegan-friendly alternatives to choose from this year to create the perfect vegan-friendly Halloween looks. 

Vegan Special FX Makeup
