Halloween is a beauty junkie’s favorite time of year and for good reason. Most people think costumes and candy but we think, MAKEUP! Halloween is the perfect chance to get creative with your cosmetics, but choosing the right products for this evening can be tricky. Get tips from the pros below and be sure to tag your Halloween makeup looks with #GloHalloween on Facebook or Instagram for your chance to be featured!
Liz Brown, owner of Two Beauties skincare and makeup artistry in Northern California, loves glamorous Halloween makeup.
"If a client asks for a Disney Princess, a mermaid, a sugar skull, a pinup girl or any other full-on glam look, I get so excited! It's a great reason to use my go-to, long-wearing [Glo Skin Beauty] products to build a bullet-proof base for color that will last all night.”
There’s nothing scarier than makeup that doesn’t last all night long.
Cindy Melendrez, makeup artist and brow extraordinaire at world famous Giuseppe Franco Salon, says to have fun with the makeup you already have.
“Be creative and reinvent new combinations of what you already own with the makeup you have. Improvise and think outside the box. But most importantly it's your art so allow yourself to have fun.”
Never have an occasion to bust out that red lipstick in your collection? A red lip can easily be incorporated into variety of Halloween makeup looks from vampire to pinup glam.
If you need a last minute Halloween costume, liquid eyeliner can work wonders. Craft a Halloween costume with nothing more than liquid eyeliner nose and whiskers, and top it off with a headband with paper ears attached.
When you have more time and preparation, the possibilities are endless! Zombie, vampire, mermaid, deer, Barbie, you name it. Get creative!
Deanna Warwick, salon owner and Master Stylist at Verde Boutique Salon, recommends starting your Halloween makeup application with a solid base. “I always use the [Glo Skin Beauty] Face Primer...with...Tinted Primer SPF 30.”
Deanna also recommends taking your time and mirroring your look off of an inspirational photo. “I find the more I dissect a picture or inspirational photo, the more details pop out. Also, always do a trial run. It always comes out better the second time around!"
