How to easily remove Halloween makeup

4 steps to easily remove your Halloween makeup

As soon as we enter the month of October, we start thinking about what we’re going to be for Halloween. Dressing up and transforming ourselves into spooky characters is an unmatched process.

What’s spookier than our costumes, is taking them off at the end of the night. Stubborn face paints, glitter and special effects are the real ‘trick’ in “Trick or Treat”. And trust me, a baby wipe won’t do the trick (pun intended). Face paints are meant to last, so they’re formulated with heavy oils that are very hard to remove, let alone the rhinestones stuck with glue.

But fear not! Mavian Beauty has curated an insightful guide to help you easily remove your spooky face and survive the night of Halloween. If this year you want to stop the rubbing and tugging of the skin before bed, then keep reading.

Step 1: Remove rhinestones and other glued objects

You’re gonna want to start with the removal of rhinestones, horns or any other decorations that are glued to the face. Rushing into this step might create a chaotic situation, but you certainly won’t be one to add to the mess-just ensure you wear our headband for convenience.

Starting your cleansing session by immediately rubbing or ripping your face decorations is a recipe for disaster. You will damage and irritate your skin. Instead, opt for a more mindful approach. Utilize a Q tip dipped in micellar water and start working around the rhinestones or other objects so that it dissolves the glue little by little. When the time is right, they will be removed really gently and without any discomfort.

Step 2: Oil cleansing for the stubborn Halloween makeup

Once all the special effect elements are off your face, it's time to cleanse away the remaining face paint and makeup. The most effective technique? Embracing the power of double cleansing, where the first step involves using an oil-based cleanser.

Oil-based cleansers are the best way to remove every trace of makeup. Usually, face paints and long-lasting makeup products are formulated with oils to ensure intense pigmentation prolonged lasting. Since oil and water don’t mix, your traditional cleanser won’t cut it.

Oil dissolves oil, so grab your favorite balm or oil cleanser, and gently rub it all over the face, neck and wherever you have used makeup. Make sure to massage it for at least 30 seconds to ensure that you have removed everything.

Before rinsing, soak in water the Mavian Beauty Makeup Remover Pads, to remove the major part of the makeup. These eco-friendly pads are created with luxurious and natural microfiber material that lifts up makeup using only water.

The white side of the pads it’s designed to be used on the entire face and lift away dirt and heavy makeup more effectively. The pink side is made of super soft material for more sensitive areas of the skin, like the eyes.

Elevate your cleansing routine with this smart and gentle approach, revealing a beautifully clean canvas beneath.


Step 3: Clean and Exfoliate with Profound Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush

The next step of double cleansing is using a water-based cleanser, but at Mavian Beauty, we have elevated this process with the revolutionary Profound Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush. This 2-in-1 sonic brush uses vibrations to effortlessly break down all the dirt and impurities while simultaneously delivering a soothing massage that enhances blood circulation to the skin.

Dispense some of your cleanser on the brush, choose your desired level of vibration and let this innovative device take charge. As it begins working, you'll notice a gentle heat from the brush; this is entirely normal. The Mavian Beauty Sonic Brush uses heat to dissolve even the most stubborn face paint and open the pores.

Using the Profound Sonic Cleansing Brush it’s a crucial step in your skin cleansing ritual. By prepping the skin in this way, you are setting the stage for optimal serum and cream absorption.


Step 4: Post-cleansing: hydrate and moisturize

You’re almost ready to sleep, just one last step. You’re face has endured the weight of rhinestones and makeup all night, so it deserves some extra care. Treat it with kindness by using the HYDRATION BOOST Serum by Mavian Beauty. Turn on your Profound Sonic Cleansing Brush in heat mode and massage the serum gently on the skin until it’s absorbed.

Follow it with a face cream and then you can go on and have a good night’s sleep knowing that your skin is being pampered and prepared for a rejuvenating morning ahead.



Final tips:

Be gentle and patient. Don’t rush into ripping the special effects of your Halloween costume out of your face. Work around them and avoid tugging your skin.

  1. Moisturize! All that face paint will suck the water out of your skin and you will wake up in the morning dehydrated and with visible wrinkles. Use a hydrating serum, face mask and cream to avoid post-halloween consequences.
  2. Drink plenty of water and take at least 8 hours of sleep. Dehydration and lack of sleep are manifested on your face with dull skin and eye bags.
