How to Make Your Halloween Makeup Last
The scariest beauty horror story? Arriving to a Halloween party with creased and crumbled makeup (AH, we can’t help but cover our eyes!). Well, you’ll finally get some peace of mind knowing you can leave that worry in the grave because we’re spilling all the potion on how to keep your Halloween makeup on all night long– whether it’s glitter, party store blood, or spooky face paint!
First thing in our book of spells is primer! Before you go in with your face paint, eyeshadow or Halloween lipstick, make sure you have primed all those areas beforehand so your makeup has something to hold on to and prevent any slipping and sliding around. Always remember to let your primer set before you go in with your makeup!
Waterproof Lash Glue
It won’t be a fang-tastic Halloween if your lashes are coming off only 2 hours into the party so grab a waterproof lash glue! The best part about waterproof lash glue is that you can use it for other things you might be gluing on your skin for Halloween’s sake like, rhinestones, glitter and even extra google eyes!
Alcohol Activated Face Paints Over Grease Paints
If your look requires lots of face paint, opt for an alcohol activated face paint instead of regular grease paint (our fave tip for making your Halloween makeup last longer)! Alcohol activated paints dry to smudge-proof and extra pigmented finish as opposed to grease paints that stay wet causing it to smear every time you touch your face. Alcohol-activated makeup is a ghoul’s best friend!
Just like with regular makeup, setting powder is crucial to keep your Halloween makeup from rubbing off! Aside from giving you some extra staying power, it can also give you extra coverage. You can use eyeshadow for extra coverage or just regular translucent setting powder.
Keep your resting witch face intact all night long with a powerful setting spray! This will help melt the powders into your face paint and create a seal over your makeup preventing it from moving it around. Opt for a waterproof setting spray so your makeup stays even after sweating!
