Halloween is just around the corner. Have you thought about what you want your costume to be? If you have something in mind that requires a bit more makeup experience than you can handle, consider seeking out professional makeup services for your Halloween makeup. A professional makeup artist can help give you the perfect look for that Halloween party — and all of the pictures that get posted afterward. Here are a few ways that you can make the most of a professional makeup application for your spooky Halloween look.
What (Not) to Do Beforehand
When it comes to professional makeup application, even the most well-intentioned clients can wreck their makeup professional’s canvas before they set foot in the salon. Most people will tell you to moisturize well in the days leading up to your appointment, and they’re correct. Moisturized skin often gives makeup a smoother appearance. If you plan to get your face waxed, do this well ahead of your appointment. Freshly-waxed skin is not only sensitive, but it can also be a difficult surface for makeup to adhere to. Avoid spray tans as well. The products used for most spray tans can interfere with makeup, creating a Halloween horror that you may not have intended.
(Maybe) Bring Some Makeup
Some clients prefer to bring some of their own makeup. While many makeup artists are perfectly okay with this, you may want to reach out to your makeup professional beforehand about bringing your own products. Whether you want to bring makeup because you have sensitive skin, you want to be able to reapply lipstick on the go, or you’ve found the PERFECT glitter for this mermaid look — regardless of the reason, many makeup artists are perfectly happy to apply makeup from your own kit.
While you can certainly show up to a makeup application appointment with nothing but the clothes on your back (and a wallet), bringing reference photos can simplify and enhance the process. If you have a specific look you’re going for, bring pictures. While your makeup artist will adjust the look to fit your face and skin tone, bringing images of what you want the finished product to look like is beneficial for everyone involved. After all, there are hundreds of ways to do a cat-eye. Start looking for costume and makeup inspiration now! Halloween will be here before you know it.
