Untitled design 10

Did you know your Halloween makeup supplies could be dangerous? Most of us don't think twice about getting the cheap makeup and fake blood from where we got our costumes - but you might want to think twice. Harmful ingredients in these off-brand products are awful for your skin; especially be on the lookout for these: 

Face Paint

It also comes in a crème which I love to it mix with a diamond white or silver pigment like Mehron’s Metallic Powder, in case you want to be pretty instead of death walking.
