Tricks & Tips for Safe & Ghoulish Halloween Makeup

If you have Halloween parties to go to this year, whether they be for work or fun, or just enjoy hitting your favorite social spots all decked out with an awesome costume, don’t forget that a successful Halloween look is all in the details. Makeup is a huge detail that can really make your Halloween costume stand out and work for you.

At Avanté Salon & Spa, our professional makeup artist can transform you into whatever you desire to be. If you’re not committed to coming in the day of Halloween or want to have some makeup fun without the full look, here’s some DIY makeup tricks and tips for a fun night out.

Tricks & Tips:

  1. Start with a clean face. Rinsing your face with cold water minimizes pores, making them less noticeable if you are using a lot of makeup or a solid white base.
  2. Consider getting dressed first if you must put it over our head. Cover your costume with a towel or apron when applying your makeup to keep it clean. Keep this is mind if you are adding glitter or spray color to your hair as well.
  3. Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly around the hairline so that it's easier to remove your makeup at the end of the night. Never go to bed with makeup on!
  4. Add thin coats of each layer of makeup, allowing it to dry in between layers. If needed, use a hair dryer on the lowest setting to help “set” your layers.
  5. Use a clean makeup brush and different textured sponges to create a textured look where needed.
  6. Adding a fine layer of baby powder over our finished makeup will help your Halloween look last all night long, even if you decide to dance the night away.
  7. Always put on makeup in good lighting.

Safety First. Plan ahead and make sure you don’t have any allergic reactions to any of your Halloween makeup. Perform a skin test at least 24 hours before you plan on applying. If you use FDA certified, approved makeup for the face, the chances of you experiencing any uncomfortable side effects will be minimized. If you plan on using any liquid latex, do not get too close to the eyes as it’s ammonia-based and can irritate the eyes.
