Still remember what Halloween was all about? Yes, it was all about scaring and warding the evil spirits off.

Why Scary Halloween Makeup?
Halloween originated from the ancient Gaelic ritual known as Samhain (pronounced "sah-win") -the celebration of the end of the harvest season, when the living and the dead overlap and - here's the creepy part - the dead came back to walk the earth and wreak havoc by spreading disease and ruining crops. Bonfires would be lit, masks and costumes would be worn, just to appease and ward off evil. And to make fun. A lot of fun - with trick-or- treating, guising, horror movies, jack o' lanterns, haunted attractions. Halloween wouldn't be complete without all the parties that take place. It is a time for losing inhibitions and having a great time. And no, it's not only for children. We can have fun too, guys!

Inspirational, huh? Just want to remind you of something IMPORTANT:
remember how cautious you are with your everyday makeup. According to Joel Schlessinger, a board-certified dermatologist, and RealSelf.com adviser, costume makeup often contains artificial dyes, fragrances, waxes, and oils, all of which can clog pores, cause breakouts and irritate skin. So the basic advice here is to avoid all the ingredients you wouldn't want in your everyday makeup. To ensure that your Halloween doesn't turn into a real nightmare ( because of an allergic reaction), pay more attention to the price and focus more on the ingredients label.
