Halloween Makeup Tips

Get what you need before it's gone. Waiting to finalize your costume plan until the night before Halloween or your party can put you in a tight spot. Try to figure out a general plan for your look in the first weeks of October so that you have plenty of time to get everything you need.

Beauty takes time. Even if it's for a scary costume! Make sure that you give yourself a few hours to work on your makeup and putting the whole costume together. If you think it will take 30 minutes to finish your makeup, give yourself at least an hour. You never know if you'll mess up, or hate it and have to start over.

Get some help, give some help. Try getting a couple people together in one location so that there are plenty of hands to help.

Don't smear the finished product. If your costume has to be pulled over your head, make sure you put it on before doing your makeup "“ don't forget to wrap a towel around your shoulders . If you don't have to pull the costume over your head, make sure you wear a button up shirt while doing your makeup so you don't have to pull it over your head when it is time to change.

Go wild! Halloween is the time to get creative! Do a quick search online and find some inspiration for your look. Don't hold back "“ if you think a look will be over-the-top, it will probably be perfect!

Get it right. Make sure that you are using makeup and glitter that is safe for your face and body. Glitterbug® Cosmetics glue, adhesive stars and rhinestones and glitter dust are FDA-approved cosmetic grade. Don't use your regular brushes for costume makeup application, or be sure to clean the brushes thoroughly immediately after using them.
