Halloween is here! Which means being able to use those bold, colorful shades we've been waiting for, getting inspired by makeup from movies and characters, and getting creative.
Unfortunately, many of the products used in this type of makeup can be heavy and greasy because of their long wear, causing unwanted side effects on our skin.
If you do not want your skin to look scarier than the costume itself, here you´ll find two helpful routines:
- Pre-makeup Skin Prep Routine
- Post-makeup Skin Recovery Routine
Before we get creative with our Halloween costumes, we must have a skincare routine to avoid irritations, breakouts, or allergic reactions. Here is a step-by-step guide on preparing your skin before applying makeup and what products to safely remove the makeup and rehydrate your skin.
How To Prep Your Skin Before Applying Makeup
Step #1: Start with a clean canvas!
Use the Gentle Cleanser to remove excess oil and dirt from the skin for a moisturizing and emollient effect. Our cleansing milk leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft, which will help makeup look even better and last longer.
Step #2: Hydration is EVERYTHING!
Once your skin is clean, we move on to hydration, which is key to keeping our pores from clogging due to makeup.
Apply St-Lift all over the face, including the neck, massaging with your fingertips to improve the appearance of the skin, giving it luminosity, firmness, and elasticity.
Step #3: The final touch of preparation
As we said in the previous step, hydration is essential for preparing the skin for makeup, especially Halloween makeup; that's why our DermaTonic will help your skin stay hydrated and fresh all day (or all night 😉).
Our toner has antioxidant and decongestant properties that will help your skin prepare for any Halloween look.
No limits to creativity
Before you start creating your look:
- Make sure the makeup products you're going to use are safe.
- Check their expiration dates and choose products with keywords such as oil-free, alcohol-free, and non-comedogenic.
- Avoid makeup products available in Halloween stores because they usually use toxic components that can irritate your skin.
If you want to do special effects makeup, always remember to use products specially designed for your skin and test a small part of your face to see how your skin reacts to these products.
Here are some ideas to inspire your makeup look.

Now it's time to find out how to restore your skin after Halloween makeup.
Removing Halloween Makeup Safely
The rule of never going to bed wearing makeup still applies, especially this time of year, because of how heavy Halloween makeup products can be. With these simple but effective steps, you'll be able to restore your skin and get a fresh glow by the morning.
Step #1: Cleanse
Remove makeup thoroughly with Gentle Cleanser, which will cleanse your skin without stripping it of its essential oils.
Step #2: Exfoliate
Perform a deep but safe exfoliation with DermaScrub.
Exfoliation will help remove dead skin cells without irritating or drying out the skin. In contrast, we will have fresh and hydrated skin.
Step #3: Recover
Apply Epifactor, our cellular renewer, to soothe the skin thanks to its Aloe Vera, which provides healing and repairing properties. Another of its components, Hyaluronic Acid, helps to hydrate, improving the appearance and texture of the skin.
Now that you know how to properly prepare your skin with the right products and how to keep your skin healthy get creative with your looks and share your costume on our social networks.
