6 Must Have Makeup Essentials for Halloween

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 10/28/2015 - 5:39 PM

Haven't you heard that Halloween was created by a makeup artist? Seriously, what other holiday can you go around and impress people with fake wounds and gory blood all over your face?

No matter what you plan on dressing up as for Halloween - we expect to see some Darth Vadar Princesses in our office - here are 6 makeup essentials that are bound to help you get into character.  

  • It's going to be a long weekend full of Halloween parties. Make sure that you're prepared to cover up those dark circles with Clinique's All About Eyes Concealer ($20.99). This concealer offers full coverage and lasts all day without creasing or settling into fine lines. 
  • Um, hello Helena Rubinstein's Lash Queen Feline Black Mascara ($35.99) - how perfect are you for my CatWoman costume? Besides the cute packaging, this is a luxurious mascara that is meant to help maximize the length & volume of your lashes. It contains extra thickening waxes & a new texturising agent that will create an extraordinary glamorous look.
  • If you're going to go bobbing for apples, make sure that you line your eyes with a waterproor liner. There's nothing worse than coming up for air and finding out that your wing liner is running down your face. Not cute. This By Terry Crayon Khol Terrybly Color Eye Pencil ($32.99) is a high-precision waterproof eye pencil that features a soft tip that glides on effortlessly to define eye contours.
  • Yes, you need eyelashes that are so long that you feel like you're going to fly away every time you blink. Christian Dior Diorshow Mascara ($32.99) has a  curved XXL brush to give your lashes fullness, length and volume without the clump.
  • Make your eyes pop with Clinique's Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes ($20.99). This is a lightweight, creamy color shadow that can be applied directly to eyelids for a light tint or blended out to a heavier intensity.
  • Let's face it...a bold vampy lip is a must have for Halloween so you have to try Giorgio Armani's Rouge d'Armani Lipstick ($36.99). Since you're going to be sinking your teeth into all of the ghoulish goodies that you can find, you'll need a deep pigmented lipstick that won't fade or feather throughout the day. 

How to Successfully Remove Halloween Makeup

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/27/2015 - 6:41 PM

Halloween makeup can surely be unique and fun to apply, but sometimes those fake wounds and clown faces can be really hard to get off once the night is finally over.

While you don’t need to be a trained makeup artist to remove your makeup properly, you’ll definitely need some handy tools to ensure that all traces of foundations and shadows are totally off your face. But before you run to the store and grab whatever makeup remover you can find, know that not no two makeup removing products are the same.

To help you find your best makeup remover match, we’ve selected six different products which guarantee a clean and makeup-free face in no time. And suitable for different skin types (and needs!), you don’t have to worry about pesky irritation in the process.

For Sensitive Skin Types...Promising a gentle clean, the delicate Borghese Gentle Makeup Remover ($23.99) removes stubborn makeup, while soothing temperamental skin in the process . Also suitable for contact lens wearers as well, you don’t have to worry about this cleanser irritating your eyes.

For A Hypoallergenic Clean...Some makeup removers can be hard on your skin, as harsh irritants and alcohols can leave your skin irritated and inflamed. For a more hypoallergenic approved formula, the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover ($23.99) removes makeup on the lids, lash and lip areas instantly.

For A Lotion Product...If your skin is a bit on the dry side, than this method of cleansing is definitely for you. Lotions can also can just as effective as gel and oil based removers, so for soft and pleasant smelling clean, enjoy the Estee Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover Lotion ($30.99), which leaves skin soft and smooth, without a greasy feel or residue.

For A Cleansing Milk...Similar to makeup removing lotions, cleansing milk products like the Sisley Botanical Cleansing Milk With White Lily ($85.99), gives you a thorough and gentle cleanse each and every time. And powerful enough to remove light and long wear makeup, this skin softening milk also leaves this skin supple and hydrated.

For Heavy Makeup Removal...Face paints and liquid liner can be hard to remove with just soap and water alone. To take these products off with ease, you’re going to want to use a waterproof busting formula like the Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover ($23.99), which easily lifts water resistant makeup in seconds.

For Makeup Remover Wipes...Portable and totally convenient, the Estee Lauder Take It Away Longwear Makeup Remover Towelettes ($28.99) speedily removes makeup wherever, whenever. Also hydrating and softening the skin, this type of product works great on all skin types too.
