Harry Potter-Inspired Makeup Products Perfect For Each House
After catching glimpse of those wickedly awesome Harry Potter-inspired wand brushes, we haven’t stopped thinking about Hogwarts-esque makeup. And don’t even get us started on the faux eyeshadow palettes created by the genius Reddit user MakeupAddiction.
If you ask us, this Harry Potter makeup mania is the greatest beauty trend we’ve seen all season, so we're not letting it stop there! We're playing Sorting Hat and pairing our favorite makeup products with their respective houses. From bronzed Gryffindor eyeshadows to regal Ravenclaw blues, these makeup picks are enchanting enough to sport to the Yule Ball or a night out at the Leaky Cauldron. Take a peek at your fave house and the beauty products destined to belong in it!
Because you’re a Gryffindor and thrive on being brave in all aspects of life—beauty included, a bronzed lion-esque eyeshadow palette by Chantecaille and a classic bold red lip from L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick are the ultimate fit for a risk taker. With its insanely pigmented shadows and a gorgeous satin finish lip color, we’re totally willing to empty our Gringotts vault to scour these gems.
You can’t call yourself a Slytherin without a sultry teal eyeshadow from the Kat Von D Metal Crush Collection and a snake brush to apply it with. You'll be attracting all the attention (which we know you love!) with these emerald-hued finds. We have a feeling you'll be the talk of all the houses thanks to these snake-clad Sonia Kashuk for Target brushes. Keep an eye out for them in November!
Those unafraid of a little beauty toil can seriously pull off a bright yellow lip and thick liquid cat eye. Hufflepuffs will thrive off the creamy and highly pigmented hue of the NYX Macoron Lippie. Plus, the chunky liquid liner by Rimmel will have even the most smokey-eyed Death Eater envious. The best part? There's no need to head all the way to Diagon Alley to pick these up–you can find them at your local drugstore!
Wise Ravenclaws know exactly how to pair two unlikely matches together and make them work like a charm. If you're a true Ravenclaw at heart, you'll have no trouble rocking a mauve eye with a gorgeous blue accent. You can't go wrong with this subtle dove shade by Kjaer Weis that just so happens to be named 'Wisdom.' Pair it with a classic aqua liner from NARS for the full effect.
