Halloween Makeup Remover Recipe

Our Favorite DIY <br>Halloween Makeup Remover Recipe

Is Halloween the day we’ve all been waiting for?

One in four Americans cite this horrific terrific holiday as their very favorite.

Just close your eyes and picture it: the eerie calm of mist, the scent of golden-leaved trees, and the gentle sound as those same leaves crunch under your feet. You may be gearing up for Halloween by picking pumpkins, sipping mulled cider, or exploring your costume options.

How else are you going to shapeshift into a believable ghost or witch or vampire? (Or maybe you’re going as Weird Barbie, the eclectic, David Bowie-inspired doll from 2023’s highest-grossing movie.)

But with a good costume comes the need for face paint, fake blood, and other cosmetics. This means we’re also going to recommend a natural, pure and potent makeup remover that you can create yourself.

Why Does Makeup Removal Matter?

So you, your friends, and family are going all out this Halloween. How’s that for a Tuesday night?

Here’s the thing, though. You may be exhausted by the end of the evening. You may choose to fall asleep in your costume—makeup still on—and just sleep the holiday off.

If you have kids, they too may be begging to keep their colorful cosmetics on for the night. (It isn’t every day they get their entire face painted like a cat or superhero.)

However, sleeping in makeup just isn’t ideal. It can cause issues and annoyances at any age. And besides, having makeup, paint, and glitter all over your body will totally wreck your sheets.

Here are some of the reasons it’s important to remove your makeup on Halloween (and frankly every day):

• Unclog the Pores
At night, makeup blends with your skin’s natural oils. Using makeup remover can unclog the pores and keep residue off of your pillow.

• Moisturize the Skin
Keeping heavy makeup on overnight can disrupt and dry out your skin. Plan to wipe it off and add a little moisture to your skin.

• Protect the Eyes
The wrong makeup can irritate the eyes at any time, but even the good stuff can cause problems while you’re sleeping. This is where makeup remover comes in.

Now let’s talk about our go-to DIY makeup remover. We may be biased, but we think you’ll love it.

Make Your Own Naturally Clean Halloween Makeup Remover

Curious about a natural option for removing your makeup this Halloween?

For the best results, we recommend using a blend of Fractionated Coconut Oil and Organic Rosewater Facial Mist.

Fractionated Coconut Oil is uniquely textured, lightweight, and lightly moisturizing—meaning it will help melt away makeup without clogging the pores or leaving a greasy residue. As an added benefit, after just one application of this nourishing product, 94% of people reported softer skin, and 92% shared that their skin felt more hydrated.*

Rosewater, meanwhile, is designed to balance excess oils. So while it will help the makeup slide off skin, it is also known for its softening, refreshing effects. USDA certified organic and 100% pure and steam-distilled, the subtle rose petal scent is entirely natural.

In combination, these two ingredients create a special DIY makeup remover that easily removes makeup for all skin types. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own this Halloween.

• 1 oz. Fractionated Coconut Oil • 1 oz. Organic Rosewater Facial Mist • Organic Cotton Rounds or Organic Cotton Balls • 1 Bottle or Jar (for blending)

Start by mixing the Fractionated Coconut Oil and Organic Rosewater Facial Mist in a bottle or jar. Shake well. Then, using an organic cotton round or cotton ball, gently apply the makeup remover to your face.

Patch test your DIY makeup remover before use. If needed, use a clean, dry cloth to remove any additional Halloween makeup.

Simple, right? Your Halloween costume may be complex this year, but your makeup remover shouldn’t have to be. Sky Organics is committed to expanding our use of organic ingredients, and we’re proud to maintain organic certification whenever possible.

(For products with material limitations like those made with minerals, clays, and salts, we still use pure and potent ingredients sourced from nature. Transparency truly means the world to us.)

Because on Halloween, you never know what lies in the shadows. And at Sky Organics, we put our ingredients right where you can see them. Your skin will thank you when you use our natural and pure DIY makeup remover recipe. We’re pretty sure you’ll want to keep it on hand all year round.
