Last-Minute Halloween Makeup Tips & Ideas

Halloween is one of the best makeup holidays of the year. If you have not yet decided what you plan on dressing up as check out these makeup tips and ideas for a little Halloween makeup inspiration.

Get Tips From the Pros

If you’re looking to nail down the basics like the pros, check out this live session hosted by Motives Beauty Advisors, Renee Wadsworth and Ka Xiong where they shared their top tips for applying special effects makeup.

If you’re going for an opaque base, Ka suggested you use a brush instead of a sponge to apply your face paint. This will give you much more pigmentation and create an even base. Renee taught us that we most likely already have everything we need at home, so be resourceful! Renee used the Motives Liquid Lip Glaze in Candy Apple to add dimension to her stitches look. If you tuned in, you saw this instantly took it to a whole new level.

Many of you also asked how you can avoid breakouts after all this makeup? Renee chimed in that she never worries because she uses 100% Motives Cosmetics products for all her looks. You must use high-quality products even for fun looks like these. Skip the cheap Halloween store “makeup” and connect with a Motives Beauty Advisor near you to invest in makeup your skin can feel good about.
