Post Make-Up Mistakes and Tips
Okay, the night was awesome. People were so amazed at your make-up prowess and how frightening you were. Children cried, dogs barked, goth chicks gave your their phone number. All in all, it was a makeup success thanks to you using our awesome products and finding your "inner monster"!
When taking off their foam latex appliances, most folks really want it off in a hurry. That is, dare we say-mistake number one! Take your time and take the appliance off with care, and read our directions thoroughly first (and before your night of mayhem and possible inebriation!) Be gentle with the process so ultimately you can re-use your piece again. It's worth it.
After the proper removal of the appliance and the adhesive residue, take some hand towels or washcloths and wet them and put them in the microwave for a 20 - 30 seconds or so (depending on the wattage of your microwave). Get them hot, but not scalding. Use them as you would on an airplane in first class. Lay them on your face and let it sit for a few minutes. Enjoy it. Take a deep breath, and remember your much heralded makeup and revel in your gothic laurels.
Then, gently wipe your face and wash it with a gentle facial soap. Now comes the important ending of your day:
Put some Aquaphor on your face. Yep, we are recommending a specific product: Aquaphor by Eucerin. The stuff is like magic! It has the consistency of Vaseline so a little goes a long way. But after a night of wearing an appliance its the perfect "night cap" for your skin. Great for tattoos, too. We are considering carrying this in our Scream Team Makeup kit for next season.
