I remember, as a kid growing up in the seventies that I couldn’t wait for Halloween. It was a day where looking scary and ridiculous was part of the fun. However, costumes and makeup were not as abundant as they are today. You had to be very creative to win the prize for best costume.
What a difference time makes! The entertainment industry has brought so many possibilities when it comes to artistic innovation. Halloween is now a time where makeup artists thrive in doing special effects using all sorts of props and makeup.
Makeup artists will vouch that creating great art starts with a fresh, clean canvas, which is our skin. One of the trickiest parts is the condition of our skin. The autumn changes in the weather, mixed with air and pollution, can affect our skin tremendously. Some will have oilier skin; others will have dryer skin or some combination of both.
Washing and moisturizing your face twice a day is key to healthy-looking skin. You may also choose to do a gentle exfoliation of your skin a few days before “makeup day.”
A few years ago, I purchased a Frankenstein costume thinking I would look very cool and scary. I underestimated the talent required to do the makeup and had to wash my face a few times resulting in a lot of skin irritation. I have learned since to practice ahead of time.
A few tips you should know before Halloween:
- Plan ahead so that you have all your props, makeup and accessories.
- Practice your makeup routine or hire a makeup artist.
- Be gentle around the eye area.
- Keep your body and skin hydrated.
- Use a moisturizer appropriate for your skin type.
- Be mindful of the quality of the makeup you’re buying.
The dreaded clogged pores!
What is not so fun is the consequence of Halloween makeup, especially in terms of clogged pores. If you have oily skin and use discount-store-quality makeup, you know what I mean.
