You’re never too old to dress up. Get in the spirit! It’s time to stockpile (and indulge in) adorably delectable candy miniatures and break out the black and orange décor. Glittery skulls, artfully-carved pumpkins, cotton cobwebs… there’s no better time to channel your inner Martha Stewart.

Embodying a character requires diligence and commitment. It’s not just the costume, it’s the accessories. The hair. The Halloween makeup. It’s the ultimate transformation – the skin – and you know what we always say:

Beautiful makeup needs beautiful skin.

That’s where your Halloween skincare comes into play. Because much as we would love our looks to be as authentic as possible, a real dark or puffy under eye is nowhere near as satisfying as an artfully painted one. Your eye creams are still a must, ladies and gents.

Prime your face. Exfoliate your skin well for a smooth surface, then apply our Temporary Lifting Mask to clean skin. It’s the ultimate go-to special occasion mask here at MB that immediately helps tighten, clean, and refine the skin so that the appearance of pores are minimized. That means whatever you decide to put on next – foundation, face paint, you name it – goes on smoother than melted chocolate (and yes, we’re going with the Halloween candy theme here; what’s your Halloween fun-sized favorite?).

Bronze up. So Halloween is associated with all things dead or dying (a bit morbid for a company who believes that a dewy glow is always in regardless of season), but say you wanted to be Cleopatra, a Greek goddess, Johnny Bravo, some 70s character, or Valentino. A glowing complexion is entirely necessary, achievable only by an Oil-Free Self-Tanning Lotion and Herbal Hydrating Serum. Did you want to be a bronzed Wicked Witch of the West? Go for it. The sky is the limit (though I’m pretty sure she was notoriously green….).

Are you dressing up for Halloween?

I tend to be verbose, so I'll keep it as short and sweet as possible: I write and dance. A lot. Also pertinent: Aries, pescatarian, and lover of all things beautiful. I'll be honest when I admit that before MB, I simply washed my face twice daily and left it at that. But ask if I'm a skincare junkie now and I'll nod voraciously. I can never be without moisturizer, and the Vitamin C Serum makes my heart palpitate. And if by some miracle you haven't tired of me rambling about myself or the Vitamin C Serum and are curious for more, visit my Google+ page for more of my work.
