To avoid allergic reactions and breakouts from thick Halloween makeup be sure to follow these steps.
- What kind are you using?
You’ll want stay away from thick white/colored makeup on the skin. Go for thin waterproof makeup instead.
- Ingredients to Avoid: Silicon & Dimethicone
- Do a skin patch test!
Before you cover your entire face in makeup test the products on a small area of skin. In this case it is much better to be safe rather than sorry later. Just like any new product you’re trying out face paint/makeup is no different; there could be irritants in the products that just don’t agree with your skin.
- Watch out for your Eyes!
Make sure any product you plan on using around or near your eyes will not irritate or harm them. This is where reading a label is absolutely necessary.
- Clean it off!
Be sure to wash it off with makeup remover right after! You do not want to let the makeup simmer on your skin and block pores.
