It's spooky season! Halloween time is the best time to play dress up, transform ourselves and step out of our comfort zone. We know Halloween makeup can be very heavy on our skin, in fact Halloween makeup is usually made out of clay or paint. Since Halloween makeup has an incredibly thick consistency, any type of sweat can cause the product to absorb into your pores and clog your pores. Today we want to share with you a few tips that will help your skin stay and look flawless before and after your Halloween makeup.

Few "Tricks" To Treat You're Skin Right This Halloween:

1. Moisturize

Moisturizing your skin before makeup application can nourish the skin and protect it from potential grease from the makeup. Be sure to start with a clean face. Do not go to bed with your makeup on. Wearing it too long may irritate your skin, and makeup can flake off and get in your eyes.

2. Protect You're Skin With A Barrier Cream

No matter what quality makeup you are using, a barrier cream is essential for sealing off your skin and avoiding any absorption. Barrier creams are ideal for costume makeup that is a skin-staining shade – no one wants to wake up the next morning with green, purple, or blue skin!

3. Skip The Halloween Store Makeup And Go For Cosmetic Grade

There are so many options when it comes to cheap costume makeup; however, if you want to do what’s best for your skin, you will avoid drugstore or Halloween store makeup this year. Spending more money on cosmetic-grade beauty products (usually labeled as ‘professional’ or ‘theater’) will be less harsh on your skin. Cheap makeup may be labeled as hypoallergenic, but it will clog your pores and do more harm than good.

Tip: always test out the makeup beforehand to see how your skin reacts.

4. Don’t Forget About The After Party – Taking The Makeup Off!

This step is perhaps the most important of them all. It is never a good idea to go to sleep without washing off your makeup. The thick, cakey, or ridiculously layered Halloween costume makeup needs extra attention to remove. Before you wet your skin, apply a layer of cold cream to your face and wipe it off to make it easier to remove oil-based makeup. After this step, follow your regular cleansing routine. Makeup remover, facial cleanser, a gentle exfoliator, and moisturizer is sure to leave your skin feeling fresh, breakout free, and glowing.

Don’t let irritated skin or breakouts ruin your Halloween fun!
