Whether you had no intention of spending time on your Halloween costume or find yourself scrambling for ideas the day before, you have options. Memorable Halloween looks don't necessarily require tons of time and materials. In fact, some of the most interesting and eye-catching ones can be created with just makeup. We've asked makeup artist Ioana Goodwin, the newly minted United States winner of NYX Professional Makeup's Freedom and Artistry for Creative Expression (FACE) Awards, for three looks you can create in under 10 minutes.
While the looks she selected can take just a few minutes to create, Goodwin shared her secrets to making sure they last through all of the evening's Halloween festivities. She preps the skin by gently exfoliating with a peel if needed (her go-to is the SkinFood Pineapple Peeling Gel ($12)), moisturizing (she likes lightweight creams that are potent with hyaluronic acid, like The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA ($8)), and using a hydrating primer (her favorite is the NYX Professional Makeup Hydrating Jelly Primer ($17)).
After she applies the makeup, she sets it using both a powder and a spray. She said that she prefers loose powders and the NYX Professional Makeup Matte Finish Setting Spray ($9), which mattifies the skin once it dries down.
Check out her picks for the best time-saving Halloween beauty looks, ahead.
