How to make sure your Halloween makeup stays put

How to make sure your Halloween makeup stays put. You’ve laboured for hours over your Halloween makeup, replaying that YouTube tutorial over and over again until you get it right.

So it’s obvious that you’d want your makeup to stay put, right?

There’s nothing worse than perfecting your Halloween look only to have it crease, smudge or crumble before you even get outside the door.

Setting your makeup is just as important as applying it in the first place. We’ve put together three golden rules for keeping your party makeup in place and ensure you look more spooky than sad.

Glitter Primer is your friend

If your Halloween look involved glitter, use a primer specifically designed to hold it in place. Instead of setting glitter makeup, using a primer will ensure longevity. Any primer that tends to be sticky or tacky will act as a glue that will hold the glitter in place all day or night. NYX’s Glitter Primer does a great job at keeping sparkles on without creasing or flaking.

Layer It Up

The key to maintaining your Halloween look is layering. If you’re using a white clown paint, be sure to set the area after applying with a white eyeshadow or translucent powder, depending on the size of the area. On top of all your eyeshadows and setting powders, you’ll want to use a layer of setting spray.

If you want your makeup to be intense, Ben Nye Final Seal is an excellent option that ensures your makeup is not going to go anywhere.

Set with the Same Tone or Colour

Use the same colour to set your face paint or makeup. While it can be difficult to find bright and vibrant setting powders like blue, green or red, eyeshadows work just as well.

Here at we always promote fashion sustainability. Where possible, please exchange your clothing with others to increase their longevity which ensures they do not go towards landfill which is bad for the environment.

Always check out how and where your clothes, beauty products and accessories are made before purchase to ensure they are not only ethically produced but environmentally friendly.

We can all play our part and make the difference to working towards a better and cleaner fashion environment here in Ireland.
