Tips for Removing Halloween Make-up

Removing Makeup

I have never been a fan of putting on a whole lot of Halloween makeup on my face, but a lot people spend a good deal of time applying it to the point where a realistic feel is created.

Below are a few tips, from HubPages.com, that should hopefully help you with your Halloween makeup.

Just remember that when buying Halloween makeup and stage quality makeup that you purchase from the better sellers. You want to make sure that what goes on you face is safe! Try to purchase high quality makeup Halloween face products from Ben Nye, Steins, Mehron, Kryolan, and Ben Cooper.

How To Remove Halloween Makeup

  1. To remove latex Halloween makeup all you have to do is just peel it off. If you have difficult areas, you can loosen it by washing with warm, soapy water. Make sure that you DO NOT use oily makeup removers with latex makeup.
  2. Halloween makeup kits or professional kits use cold cream. It may take several applications of the cold cream to remove all of the makeup.
  3. Most powder makeups can be removed with just a warm washcloth and soap or a makeup cleanser.

Make sure that you have removed ALL of the makeup before you go to bed. You want to make sure that you do not clog your pores because of a little left over Halloween makeup. You should also apply a light coat of lotion after removing all of the makeup, as well, just to keep your face moisturized.

“Sons of Anarchy” makeup artist Tracey Anderson shared these easy tricks for erasing the holiday’s special effects. So go ahead, cake it on!

  1. Faux Blood: Slather on a layer of shaving cream to remove dried faux blood quickly. Rub thoroughly and rinse in the shower.
  2. Face Paint: “Products containing a lot of oil will break down makeup and paint quickly without damaging the skin,” says Tracey. “Look for a face wash containing isopropyl myristate, which is synthetic oil and will get rid of heavy makeup.” For sensitive skin, Tracey suggests trying classic baby oil, which will take longer to dissolve face paint but is a lot gentler on your complexion.
  3. Fake Tattoos and Body Pieces: When it comes to larger areas on the body, Tracey suggests using a set of scrub gloves. For other glues, Tracey warns against trying to peel them off. “It is dangerous to yank adhesives of any kind without first applying oil,” she explains. “If you don’t have oil, some nail polish removers contain acetone, which is fine to use on your skin and will remove stains.”
