 How to remove Halloween makeup?

To remove your Halloween makeup, it is important to use a specific makeup remover. We recommend makeup removing oils and waterproof makeup removers, especially if your makeup is too. For little bits, we recommend that you use cleansing milk, which will be much less aggressive on the skin. You can even make your makeup remover yourself with our make-up remover recipe in our homemade cosmetics section.
