Skin Tip: Halloween Edition!

Stephie Estie

Since it’s Halloween, most of us are dressing up and probably using some type of face makeup. Follow these simple guidelines to ensure your makeup lasts and your skin stays protected!

1) Use a primer before painting your face to provide a barrier between your skin and the makeup- this way, the makeup sits on top of your primer instead of directly on the skin.

2) Remove all makeup after your event is done! Sleeping in stage makeup that is loaded with heavy waxes, colors and oils is a recipe for breakouts and irritation. If possible, use an oil-based cleanser to help dissolve makeup so that there is minimal rubbing, tugging, and pulling. Milk/cream cleansers can work just as well or use makeup wipes as another option. Follow with your cleanser to remove any leftover residue and moisturize.

Thanks for reading, have a fun Halloween weekend, and stay tuned next week!

  1. Great tips Steph, wish I’d have used a little bit of primer on Emma’s skin before using her halloween makeup kit as it was so difficult to remove! Very stubborn stuff!! XXX

    • Thanks Karen! Yes, Halloween makeup tends to be very difficult to remove and using something like an oil based makeup remover or cleanser works best for heavy makeup. Try it next year and see how that goes. 🙂

      • Yes I can imagine. I had a dance performance last year and backstage there was a crew who wore a lot of makeup and one of the guys was trying to remove desperately remove it. I went up to him and offered him my Dermalogica PreCleanse Wipes and he was so grateful because it made it easier for him to remove it. He even later came up to me and asked me if he can have one more for his friend. Of course, that’s why I had them in my makeup case. 🙂

      • Morale of the story is be prepared…. OR… keep a Stephie Estie nearby at all times (my personal fav) hehe 😀 You’re like a little skin saving superwoman these days chummy ❤ Love it!!!!!!! XXXXX
