Halloween Make-up Ideas

Halloween is just around the corner and it is crunch time to finalize your costume options. Here are a few possibilities that you may choose to replicate for your Halloween haunting festivities.

Probably one of the most popular Halloween costume options this year will undoubtedly be Harley Quinn from DC Comics due to the movie Suicide Squad and the lovely Margot Robbie who was cast in the role.

Dia de los Muertos / Sugar Skull Make-up will probably be another popular choice again this year.

Clowns are on the rise this year, but rather than the scary, creepy type clown, I opted for the cuter harlequin version.

Pictured above are my adaptations of the characters costume make-up, and listed below is a list of the products I used and links to where you can purchase them, for each of these looks.

Body Blendz Scrubs

All the way from Australia, comes one of my favorite body scrubs.

I must admit that I am only an occasional scrubber, so I may not see all the benefits that these scrubs boast. I can however, attest to the quality of the product in comparison to other scrubs I’ve used. It smells great, is easy to use, and makes my skin feel amazingly soft afterwards.

All scrub options are a coffee variation and come in a 200 gram packet for $19.95. It is an ample amount with plenty of product for several scrub sessions.

Scrub Options: 

  • Coffee Scrub
  • Coconut Delight
  • Oats Oats Baby
  • Sugar Daddy

Their website describes the benefits of each scrub variation as below:

Our Sugar Daddy Scrub is highly moisturising and highly recommended for use on sensitive skin. It’s perfect for helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It aids in treating ingrown hairs, eczema & Keratosis Polaris (the little red spots on the back of your arms and legs), all whilst keeping your skin supple, firm and youthful. 

Our Coffee Scrub is packed with active ingredients like Caffeine & Sea Salt, which are perfect for targeting cellulite & stretch marks. It is suitable to treat acne, reduce redness and improve skin tone & texture. 

Our Coconut scrub is highly hydrating and great for skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The essential oils remove dead skin cells, clear away dirt, grime and remove make-up. It can also aid in shrinking wrinkles, preventing cellular ageing and protect against sun damage. 

Our Oats Scrub is perfect for relieving itchiness, rashes & dry flaky skin. It also increases the natural production of collagen, which aids in smoothing out stretch marks. The oats scrubs also target cellulite, stretch marks, acne, eczema & psoriasis.

    Scrub frequency recommendations from the Body Blendz website:

    We recommend 2 to 3 scrubs a week is perfect to get that glowing, radiant skin you desire and to target stretch marks and cellulite. Make sure to leave the scrub on for 5 to 10 minutes each session for best results.

    Body Blendz also has new body wraps and a new mandarin body scrub, which both look amazing and I can’t wait to try.
