Makeup Horror Stories No Girl Should Ever Experience
Posted on 28 October 2019
Scary horror houses, shrieks of the haunted, and spooky Halloween parties – these aren’t the only things that create fear within the heart of the beauty community.
Turns out we may have to fear something worse – makeup mishaps!
If you’re planning on going to a Halloween costume party, you can go as any character you like. Just make sure you avoid these makeup horror stories for a Halloween look that scream gorgeous!
The Clown Makeup
A full-face of makeup, complete with full coverage foundation, colorful eyeshadow, and intense contouring is great – just make sure you don’t build it up too much! When you put on too much foundation and top it off with another layer of powder, it can turn into a cakey clown mess.
With the wrong foundation and technique, you can end up accentuating your imperfections instead of hiding them.
Here’s a list of our go-to full-coverage yet lightweight foundations that will help you get the perfect base:
- Lancôme Miracle Air de Teint Perfecting Fluid Matte Glow Creator
- Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup
- Clinique Superbalanced Makeup
- Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation
The White Ghost
Nothing haunts us like the makeup looks we regret! Have you ever seen your favorite celebrities with makeup flashbacks? If you haven’t, you have to take note of this! Makeup flashbacks happen when you put on a foundation or a face powder that contains silica. This ingredient is not horrific when in natural light, but it’s a whole new (horror) story when under direct flash.
Unless you’re going as Casper, make sure you use these powders for mattified and radiant skin that won’t give you the scary white cast:
- Christian Dior Diorskin Nude Air Loose Powder
- Bareminerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder
- Youngblood Natural Loose Mineral Foundation
The Sleepless Vampire
Let’s say you already have the perfect base for your makeup, just like a Vampire with alabaster skin! There’s one more rookie mistake you need to avoid. There’s nothing wrong with heaving mascara and eyeliner, especially on Halloween. Just make sure they don’t smudge! Make sure you use waterproof mascaras and eyeliners so they’ll last the whole Halloween party, or else you’ll end up looking like a vampire that had one too many sleepless nights.
