5 Makeup Tricks worth a Treat for Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching! If you are planning to glam it up, cover it up, or disguise it all with makeup we have 5 tips you need to read.

Tip # 1 – Start with a moisture base

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize.  This mantra should be repeated everyday but especially when you will be applying fun Halloween products with less than quality ingredients to get the white-washed vampire look, the green witchy skin, or if you plan to channel the smurf’s blueness.  Apply a little extra moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated and plump, creating a more flawless canvas!

Tip # 2 –  Winged or Cat’s Eye Eyeliner Tips

Need a flair for the dramatic? Winged Eyeliner is the perfect way to snag someone’s attention and looks great with costumes from the Egyptian Pharaoh’s to the more current Snooki.  For detailed tips in how to draw and apply click here.

Tip # 3 – Bronzing, Hallowed Cheeks, or Defined Cheek Bones

Contouring is a common trick used by Makeup Artists to elongate your face, to create a big contrast, or create illusions of defined cheek bones and gaunt faces. From gory vampires to glam like Angelina, contouring can take your makeup to the next level.

To create or enhance cheekbones, pucker your lips and suck in your cheeks, apply your contouring color  to the hollows and a highlighter to the top of the cheekbones.

Tip # 4 – Liven up the Lips

Halloween is always fun and it’s a great chance to try something new! How about a rocking hot, totally not {normally} you, lip color? Pick up a stunning Gold or Sliver color at your favorite Halloween store.  Or for a DIY trick mix up an unused eye shadow color with a bit of Vaseline or Carmex– get an outrageous orange, pixy purple or cool cucumber green.

Tip # 5 – Wash it All Off!

Please heed this advice – wash off all makeup before you go to bed!  You skin goes through a natural rejuvenation process while you sleep and you don’t want your skin absorbing chemicals, dyes and potential bacteria after the party is over!  In fact it’s best to wash your face at least twice – one to rinse away the makeup and a second time to actually cleanse the skin.  And then of course apply your moisturizer!
