Masquerade Beauty: How to Wear Your Makeup Under a Mask
You will remove your mask at some point, so make sure your skin looks amazing. Press a long-wearing foundation into the skin with a damp makeup sponge and sweep on a cheek stain. Then, set it all with a finishing spray (Tanno loves Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray) rather than powder. "Translucent powders can reflect in camera flashes and look cakey," says Tanno.
Don't be afraid to try a bold lip color:
"It's Halloween—you can get away with more makeup," says Tanno. This season, we're feeling bright, candy apple red or really vibrant fuchsia lipstick. Press on a creamy formula with a brush for opaque, even coverage that lasts all night.
Always amp up the eyes:
Most masks are intended to draw attention to the eyes, so turn up the drama with a smudgy, smoky look. First, prep the lids with an eye-shadow primer or concealer, and then press a black gel pencil into the lash line. Use an eye-shadow brush to blend it up toward the crease and, if you want, dust a colored shadow on top. If you have small eyes, skip black liner (which can make them look smaller) and trace the lower lash line with a beige pencil. Finish with lots of black mascara or false lashes.
