Do you get stuck thinking of what face paint you want to draw or not sure which of your products contain scary ingredients? Below are some product recommendations that you can use as a safer alternative! Remember, a 10 Dirty Meter rating is the dirtiest rating, while a 1 rating is the cleanest rating. Let’s get you halloween ready!

1. Homemade Face Paint

Instead of: Ben Nye Creme Colors (Rated 10)

Did you know that a report released by the Breast Cancer Fund’s Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found that heavy metals like lead and cadmium were found in some tested face paints?

Instead of: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme 740 Certainly Red (Rated 10)

Ah - my favourite part… applying my lippies! When choosing the wrong lipcolour, it throws off the whole makeup look - but wait a minute, it’s Halloween and that means you can dress and wear your makeup however you want! So, go bold or go home! I dare you to try 100% Pure Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick - Pink Canyon (Rated 0).

Instead of: Clinique High Impact Mascara Black (Rated 10)

Who needs drama when you can get voluminous lashes! A full face makeup isn’t complete without mascara or falsies. It makes a huge difference in making your eye appear more awake and flirty. Keeping in mind, your eye is quite sensitive so switching to a safer alternative mascara will keep your lashes full and long.

Maybe you want to give yourself higher cheekbones and a thinner nose to resemble Angelina Jolie or change your facial structure to look like a tiger! Either way, you’ll want to avoid using this bronzer, which is rated 10 for its use of butylparaben. Check out rated 0 Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals Self Tan Bronzing Minerals instead.
