Halloween Makeup FAQs

 

What is the best makeup to use for Halloween makeup?

I personally recommend using what you already own!

Most of my Halloween makeup tutorials use basic drugstore makeup products or Halloween drugstore makeup products so that it’s affordable.

Check out my best drugstore makeup series over here with tons of affordable recommendations.

Can you use eyeshadow for Halloween makeup?

Yes! Eyeshadow can be used to create so many cute and fun Halloween makeup looks.

Halloween is the perfect time to break out the colorful shades in your favorite eyeshadow palettes or use some of the deeper shades in basic eyeshadow palettes.

If you need recommendations, check out my 8 Best Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes.

What should I put on my face before Halloween makeup?

It always depends on what products you’re planning to use, but if you want your Halloween makeup look to last, I’d recommend using a long-lasting primer or one of these drugstore setting sprays to lock in the look.

If you are using face paint, it’s also a good idea to moisture your face first so that it will be easier to remove later.

Check out my 6 favorite paraben-free moisturizers here.

How do you prepare your skin for Halloween makeup?

I recommend exfoliating your skin, moisturizing, and/or applying a primer before wearing Halloween makeup.

You want your skin to have a good base, otherwise it’s not going to last.

How to do zombie face paint easy/ how to do zombie makeup with eyeshadow?

Check out my zombie makeup tutorial over here! I even show you how to create zombie costumes and how to face paint your kids.
