Everyone loves to dress up but what fun is it to pretend to be Hello Kitty or a Zombie from The Walking Dead if you cannot paint your face to match your costume? Before you head to the store to pick up a tube of Halloween makeup, there are some things you should know about what you’re getting ready to put all over your (and your child’s) face.

  • A lot of the Halloween makeup available today contains butylated hydroxyanisol and triethanolamine. I had no idea what these were before I did a little research, but I knew I didn’t want them on my face.
  • Butylated hydroxyanisol and triethanolamine have been linked to cancer and hormone disruption in the research I’ve read. There are too many studies to list, but if you Google the terms, you’ll see what I mean.
  • Since we absorb up to 80% of what we put on our skin, these are ingredients to be avoided at all cost.
  • Heavy metals – primarily lead – are often found in Halloween makeup – even Halloween makeup intended for kids. Scientists have stated there is NO safe level of lead to expose our children to.
  • Certain temporary tattoos contain additives that are not approved by the FDA. Who remembers the little girl last year that got horrible chemical burns on her face from using an eye tattoo as part of her Halloween makeup?

If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of making your own natural Halloween makeup, you can buy this organic Halloween makeup on Amazon. I couldn’t believe how affordable it is for 5 jars of face makeup.

  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • Coconut oil
  • 1/2 Tsp natural cold cream. Weleda makes a great natural cold cream you can find on Amazon.
  • Natural food coloring. These food dyes come from plants and vegetables and are totally safe.

Mix the cornstarch and natural cold cream together. Add one or two drops of natural food coloring. Be very careful not to add too much or it may stain your skin. Apply a thin layer of coconut oil to your face first. Then apply the natural Halloween makeup.

After Halloween, remove with an oil-based cleanser. I like Burt’s Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser. You can find it at most drugstores.
