Did you know that you can use Mineral Pigments to paint your face and/or the faces of your children for Halloween? I saw that other people had been having success with it, so I decided to put this to the test on my little sister Halloween 2014. Kay wanted to be a zombie bride for Halloween, so I started researching images on Pinterest for ideas on color schemes.
I used light beige shades all around her face with a wet brush to create that shimmery off-white zombie look. I used purples and pinks around the eyes to create that sunken in and un-dead look. Then I used browns and purples in the contour areas of her face to create sunken in bone lines. The final touch was a bit of black and red on the lips, with some red dripping down her chin to create that bloody mouth look!
This was my first attempt, and I was super happy with the results. Kay absolutely LOVED her makeup, and she was super excited each time she was complimented by treat-givers!
Kay has very sensitive skin, so she is unable to wear a lot of that typical face paint for Halloween without having it irritate her skin. When she does wear the regular stuff, it takes forever to get off and requires a lot of scrubbing. With the natural based pigments, Kay did not have ANY reaction to the makeup whatsoever. In addition, when it came time to remove it at the end of the night, all it took was a wet facecloth and some soap and water!
This stuff is amazing, and it is way healthier for your children to have on their skin for hours.
