How to properly remove your Halloween makeup?

In a few days, you may turn into a Queen of Hearts, a Mermaid, a Witch, or any other Halloween makeup. You will spend a longer or shorter time making your masterpiece and just as much removing it. So here are our tips to avoid leaving glitter and other green (or white or red) creams on your pillows.

Opt for triple cleaning

Normally, when putting on makeup, it is essential to remove everything carefully at the end of the day. But with a face painted in white, black or any other unusual colors, it is better to opt for the double cleaning or even triple. To do this, we start by removing as much material as possible with a cotton ball and cleansing milk. Then we go on with a cleansing oil, softer, which will eliminate all the most encrusted residues. Finally, it is refined with micellar water or a tonic lotion. And if makeup really is stubborn, a gentle scrub may be welcome. As for the eyes, it is better to opt for a specific two-phase makeup remover. This area is often the most made up and also the most sensitive, we remain vigilant.

The extra gesture: for purists, a splash of rose water organic is ideal. This water soothes the skin, removes the lime left by tap water, tightens the pores and acts as an excellent anti-oxidant.

Invest in duct tape

Difficult to consider a Halloween makeup without glitter? It is understandable but, ultimately, it is often annoying. No matter how careful we are with our makeup removal, we always find a small shiny particle here and there after a few days. The solution: invest in adhesive tape to capture the recalcitrant glitter.

To know : for those who do not see what they could do next with an adhesive tape, know that it can be very useful to perfectly trace your eyeliner.

Hydrate and soothe

Finally, because we have inflicted paint, glitter, perspiration and intensive cleansing on our skin in the space of a few hours, it is imperative to pamper it. And for that, nothing like a good dose of hydration. We then put on a face mask if we have the time (and the courage). Better yet, if it is late, we can opt for the famous sleeping packs, these ultra rich creams that have the effect of a mask applied all night. Finally, the following days, we make sure to let our skin breathe and take good care of it with our usual serum and cream.
