Halloween is around the corner!
Costumes await you and maybe a contest or two, but at least there'll be a party.
What's in style this year? Costumes that use clothes that you might already have in your closet paired with some really fabulous makeup skills. Think KISS band members, Bambi, Dick Tracy comic book characters, Dia De Los Muertos girls, and more. It makes sense - they look awesome and save some damage on the budget.
How to Prep Your Skin for Makeup
Since makeup is cheaper than ever, some of the ingredients may not be top-notch. The best way to avoid redness, irritation, and breakouts is to prep your skin with quality ingredients.
First you want to cleanse your skin to ensure you aren’t trapping bacteria and dirt underneath your makeup. Then, gently tone your skin to soothe any irritation that might happen. Moisturizing your skin before applying makeup will help the makeup apply smoothly.
Step 1. Cleanse your skin with a natural cleanser or oil cleanse with Jojoba Oil or Pomegranate Seed Oil.
Step 2. Tone with Lavender Water for extra soothing properties.
Step 3. Moisturize with Carrot Seed Oil or Pomegranate Seed Oil to prep for makeup.
Step 4. Time to get creative. Apply your makeup!
Step 5. Spritz your face with natural Rose Water Toner to set the makeup.
Remove Halloween Makeup (without the hassle!)
We're all about makeup but not about the redness and raw skin that comes from scrubbing it all away that night (heaven forbid you SLEEP in it).
The hardest part for Halloween (after figuring out what you'll be, of course) is the not-fun job of taking all that special effects makeup off. Some of it is meant to stay on and look intense all night but it's not the easiest on your skin.
Step 1. Go all out on the costume - have fun!
Step 2. Get yourself a bottle of 100% pure and natural Leven Rose Jojoba Oil.
Step 3. After the party, get a handful of cotton balls.
Step 4. Put a few drops of Jojoba Oil on the cotton ball and wipe the makeup away!
Step 5. Wash your face as normal or rinse with warm water as the Jojoba Oil is good for your skin for added moisture.
Step 6. Spray soothing Lavender Water on your face to tone it since it soothes red, irritated skin.
Step 7. Smooth a few drops of Rosehip Night Serum on your face. It's specially formulated to help skin repair and heal itself while you sleep.
Step 8. Rinse your face in the morning again and apply another few drops of Jojoba Oil to minimize any after effects from the makeup you'd worn for hours the day before.
VOILA! The secret is out - this is the BEST way to take off stubborn makeup every year. Share with your friends if you dare.
Why Jojoba Oil?
Why should you use Jojoba Oil for makeup removal instead of anything else? Easy.
Leven Rose Jojoba Oil is pure, organic, and cold-pressed, raised in the deserts of Arizona. It's well-known by makeup artists to use as a natural makeup remover (so it's great for daily use too). The oil is the closest to your body's sebum, which is your face's oil production so your skin loves it.
This oil cleansing method has two benefits - it makes the makeup wipe off easily and smoothly while adding extra moisture and calming nutrients to your skin.
Other makeup removers have chemicals, additives, fillers, other preservatives, or other nasty stuff that's more likely to leave your skin raw and red.
