Pretty Little Liars always has such amazing makeup looks for their Halloween specials every year, so we figured Pretty Little Liars Head Makeup Artist Cindy Miguens would be the perfect person to ask for some Halloween makeup tips and to find out about her favorite natural products that she uses on the girls.
Where do you get your inspiration to help create the amazing looks we see on the Halloween special year after year?
I’m inspired by our incredible producer story ideas, by our amazing wardrobe designer and at times the extremely talented production designer. I do my research from books and the internet, as well. The looks we create, are a collaboration of what the actors are wearing and the designs of the sets at times.
What are your Halloween makeup tips?
Here are some of my makeup tips: Use a primer before applying Halloween makeup. This will prevent the makeup from clogging your pores and prevent breakouts. Set the makeup with a no color powder (white), this will not change the color of the makeup you applied. Avoid the contacts bought in Halloween store, you can scratch your cornea, if you don’t get your eye measures by an Optometrists, which can ruin your vision. If you want your makeup to stay all night, spray a sealer setting spray, over your finished product. Take the time to wash it all off at the end of the night, you’ll lessen the chance of breakouts.
