I always wanted to paint my face for Halloween when I was growing up but for whatever reason my parents never let me. I’m not sure if it was that they didn’t want to buy the supplies to do it or that my mom didn’t want to deal with trying to get it all off my face. This year I want to do something different so I have started trying different half face looks and so far, this one is my favorite. I’m not sure what it is but it’s fun. I decided to share my Halloween Makeup Half Face Tutorial with you along with an awesome tip on how to remove the Halloween makeup in under 2 minutes with Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.
Halloween Makeup Half Face Tutorial
- Apply white base to half face.
- Outline black swirl around eye.
- Fill in black swirl on eye and make red triangles and swirl around check. Apply black mascara.
- Do line for your half skeleton mouth. Fill in lips on opposite side with black.
- Draw out black teeth.
- Apply white swirl around opposite eye and red triangle.
- Put in red contacts if available.
I was really pleased with how it came out on my “dry run” so when we go trick-or-treating around the new neighborhood this year I’m sure to stand out. I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to wear yet though. I’m thinking of an oversized red, hooded cloak. Wouldn’t that be kind of neat? It’s almost like Twilight meets Day of the Dead meets anime. Every year we go out in the neighborhood before our big Halloween Bash starts at the house. This is our first year here so we want to make sure we do it extra BIG!
Halloween Makeup Half Face Removal
Now, all that took me about an hour to do. I used a black liquid eyeliner for the detail work with the black. I filled in a lot of the red with red lipstick on top of the red Halloween paint from the store. On some areas that weren’t black enough for me I even applied a little mascara. You would think after all that makeup I put on my face that it would take an hour to remove it all, but honestly it took less than a minute and a half with only ONE Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelette! Although I also bought the Neutrogena Ultra-Light Cleansing Oil, I didn’t even need it. This is how easy it was:
I found the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes while I was at Walmart picking up the Halloween paint in the Health & Beauty section near the pharmacy. I figured these would be perfect for my Halloween makeup removal because they are gentle enough to use around your eyes and knowing my eyes were going to be caked with black this was important. What I didn’t know until I looked closer was that they were safe for contact lens wearers too which was an extra bonus because I planned on wearing my red contacts. I also used a lot of waterproof mascara to darken the black and the towelette wiped it away. Yes, I was able to take it all off with one towelette! After the removal there was no greasy build up or that gunky feeling you get with some cleansers. My face felt as good as when I started.
