It’s no doubt that one of the best nights of the year for makeup enthusiasts is October 31st. Imagining all the foundation, glitter, eyeliner, and lipstick makes us dizzy! And at Skinworks School of Advanced Skincare, we are counting down the days till we can show off our best makeup ideas ever! But some challenges can get in the way of having the perfect makeup, so this is the ultimate guide to making sure your makeup slays and stays the entire night.
Best Halloween Makeup Practices For Your Skin
First thing’s first, let’s make sure you’re keeping your skin healthy with the makeup you’ll be applying. It’s a known fact that makeup can clog pores and create problems with your skin if not handled properly. But don’t worry! There are ways to make sure that you’re taking care of your skin and looking great!
The first rule of thumb is to make sure that you have clean brushes to use. Using brushes that have makeup sitting on them for weeks and even months on end creates the ideal home for bacteria. You don’t want that on your skin!
Second, you should not leave makeup on your skin longer than necessary. When the Halloween festivities are done, you should immediately remove it with makeup remover to free those pores. It’s also good to wash your face after, making sure you’re cleaning out your pores to prevent breakouts down the road.
Third, you should invest in a quality primer that will help protect your skin from the outside environment. There are many skin care benefits to using a good primer. Primers can help fill in fine lines, make your skin more radiant, and creates a barrier between your skin and makeup.
How to Have the Best Makeup at Your Halloween Party
The first start to having the best makeup at your Halloween party is to gather all of the inspiration you can find! Get ideas from other makeup enthusiasts, Youtubers, beauty companies, Pinterest and your friends! This will help you find the look that you’re trying to achieve and will give you ideas on what kind of makeup you’ll need to buy and what you already have available.
You should then make sure you practice, practice, practice your desired look. Don’t wait until a few hours before your party to give your makeup look the first try! You should plan in advance and if you practice and succeed early on during October, then you have some opportunities to make changes. You could even share it with others for their inspiration!
Lastly, make sure you’re applying your makeup in the right order to minimize getting certain makeup products on your face where it doesn’t belong!
Here’s the order you should follow:
- Skincare routine
- Translucent powder and setting spray.
How to make your Halloween Makeup Last All Night Long
The last part to complete your Halloween look is to make sure it stays on the entire night! Whether you’re staying at home and handing out candy to the trick or treaters in your neighborhood, or going out and partying it up all night long, you’ll want to make sure all your hard work is there for people to still admire even at the end of the night.
Here are some important tips to make sure your makeup won’t turn into a melted mess.
- Make sure your skin is hydrated – your makeup will last longer and won’t flake off.
- Use professional stage makeup.
- Use waterproof or long-wearing concealer.
- Find a setting spray that will hold the entire night!
