Costume makeup is formulated differently than everyday cosmetics, so if you are down for a heavy-duty makeup look this Halloween, you should know that your regular cleansing bar or gel won’t do much for you, unless you have a product formulated specifically for removing even the most stubborn face paint.

In order to avoid acne, blackheads, dryness or any undesirable skin condition, a smart idea is to remove every last smidge of makeup once the party is over. Celebrity Hairstylist and Makeup Artist, Millie Morales, shared with Latin Times her quick suggestion on how to remove the most persistent Halloween makeup.

"Halloween is finally almost here! A day that we get as creative as our mind wants and let our imagination soar to create a fun makeup look. But Chicas, be sure to remove your makeup at the end of the night!" said Morales. "Here’s my quick tip on how to remove that stubborn eye makeup. I always use my Garnier SkinActive Waterproof Micellar Cleansing Water. Soak a cotton pad and press over your eyes for a few seconds and then wipe away! Do this step all over your face too and your skin will feel fresh, clean brand new."
