Halloween is right around the corner. Everyone is getting busy deciding what costume to wear or what character to portray. Going as a Disney Princess or a cute bunny may be too boring for some so we have decided to compile DIY easy Halloween makeup ideas for you.
If you have no time to shop for costumes or you have no idea where to get them, you can just make use of what you already have. Any drugstore makeup can be used to achieve your easy, do-it-yourself Halloween look.
You can also buy face paints or body paints in craft stores if you don't want to make a mess out of your regular maquillages. It doesn’t matter if you have zero makeup skills or you have no idea what character to portray.

Of course, you can add your very own artistic flair to your Halloween look. You can search for inspiration in movies, comics, or even video games. Let your imagination run wild and unleash the inner artist in you.
To achieve a good Halloween look, it is important to have a good canvas when working on your art. Like painters, they start with a blank canvas and let their creativity flow. It is the same with applying makeup.
If you work on a smooth surface, the better your makeup will look.
Getting rid of the dead skin cells and unsightly bumps is necessary to help applying makeup easier. Doing microdermabrasion a day before doing your Halloween makeup will help you achieve a smooth finish. You will notice that your makeup will adhere better and will last longer.
Also, to seal in your look, you can set it with our very own Hydrating Mist. It is refreshing and invigorating and will help make your makeup look flawless.
