What should I put on my face before Halloween makeup?
It always depends on what products you’re planning to use, but if you want your Halloween makeup look to last, I’d recommend using a long-lasting primer or one of these drugstore setting sprays to lock in the look.
If you are using face paint, it’s also a good idea to moisture your face first so that it will be easier to remove later.

How do you prepare your skin for Halloween makeup?
I recommend exfoliating your skin, moisturizing, and/or applying a primer before wearing Halloween makeup.
You want your skin to have a good base, otherwise it’s not going to last.
