Easy Halloween Make Up
If you have been looking for some easy
Halloween make up
instructions, then you would do yourself a lot of good if you did not
check Hollywood methods, where you might have to spend thousands of
dollars just to get the best quality makeup for a simple Halloween day.
All you need to do is to have fun on this special day of spooks, and to be
yourself Ė that means you should look as scary as you can without having
to spend money.
Applying make up should come easy to you if you know your Halloween lore
well, but you cannot simply slap on some white powder and red lipstick and
pretend to be dead. You need to do a few things to prepare for getting it
on for Halloween. It all begins with health and safety: make sure that you
do not have any expired makeup products in your makeup stocks, and test
your make up on the inside of your arm first at least a day before you use
it. If you develop a rash, then do not use that make up! Throw it away!
Alternatively you can use face paint. Itís cheap, easy to find and comes
in a huge range of colors! Just make sure to only use face paint thatís
FDA approved and safe for use on the skin.
Before putting on your make up or face paint, make sure that your face is
clean. Wash it with a gentle soap, clean it out with astringent, then
rinse it with ice cold water so that you can seal your pores immediately.
If you want to remove your make up easily at the end of your night of
trick or treating, put on a layer of petroleum jelly. Start off with your
prosthetics, such as fake nose or cheeks, and allow them to adhere to your
face before proceeding to make up. You can simply blend them in later.
Itís time to put on your foundation. You can use either pancake makeup or
cream-based make up. Pancake make up needs a powder puff for application,
and it can be irritating if your skin is not used to this kind of make up.
Cream-based make up, on the other hand, is commonly used at Halloween: you
can use different colors depending on your needs, where white goes with a
gothic look, neon colors go with the alien look, and black goes with a
Now that you have lain over your foundation, itís time to build on it.
What kind of creature would you like to be? You will need to shadow or
highlight certain parts of your face in order to turn into your favorite
creepy ghoul. Use a tube or a stick of a darker colored foundation to do
your highlighting. Bring out the wrinkles on your forehead and on the
sides of your face if you want to look extra old or witchy. If you want a
rough face, mix up some oatmeal and corn syrup, then apply gently to your
Experiment with your make up brushes in order to come up with different
textures. A large, rough brush applied in haphazard motion over a smooth
surface can create scratches and different kinds of effects. You can brush
over with a darker color so that your skin appears used or uneven.
Add more texture by dabbing a sponge in different
colors, and then applying the sponge pattern to your face. You can
actually appear as though you have all your veins standing out using this
Shadow and highlight your face, then set your make up with some baby
powder to keep it from smearing. As soon as you have your makeup done and
your costume finished, youíre ready to go! Happy trick or treating, and
