How To Remove Halloween Makeup According To TikTok


happy Halloween! While wearing the coolest clothes and putting on extra makeup is what it’s all about today, treating color spots from those clothes isn’t.

Do you need Halloween makeup? Everyone’s first port of call of the year was TikTok, with over 9.1 billion views under #halloweenmakeup, but as for taking off their Halloween makeup? This could actually be a very useful new trend… and surprisingly satisfying.

Whether it’s opting for a little blood for a simple yet effective finish, or those Picasso-approved masterpieces we’ve all seen TikTok makeup artists spend hours creating, Halloween makeup proves difficult to remove. With the frequent use of bright, highly pigmented colors comes the risk of staining the skin. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get smeared orange from the body paint from Translate Pumpkin, the pads clean me up to this day.

Hence, Halloween fans have taken to TikTok to share our Halloween makeup look breakdown. Some users have taken a more informative approach, sharing their tips and tricks for removing tough products.

beautygurumo shared her Halloween makeup remover, calling her makeup balm remover a “saviour.” The video sees the artist massaging the balm onto her skin, before using a towel to remove what she can, before continuing with a foolproof makeup wipe.

Another user, @siananscrivner, documented removing pumpkin makeup (which I could have done a few years ago). Responding to a comment asking for recommendations for makeup removers for sensitive skin, she replied, “Clinique ditch the balm today is incredible!! I also recently tried the Kora Organics Oil Cleanser and it was amazing!” There are no guard products here.

Some of the videos have gotten hundreds of thousands of views just from the satisfying sounds and visuals – move over pimples and soap bars. The most flattering removals tend to rip — literally — the fake leather. Picturedaniellemarcan peeling off her molded cheekbones, detailed with pinched holes.

wyntirose has also proven that exfoliating fake chin, cheeks, nose and eyebrows is a new form of ASMR that many users can miss. One user commented, “Why is this so satisfying,” with another saying, “The noise is so nice.” Peeling has been a sick favorite for so long, who didn’t let PVA glue dry on their hands so they could peel it off like a kid?
