Maybe you’ve seen those terrifying Halloween makeup tutorials – but what if you want a Halloween look that’s a little more conservative? Here are some options for hair, skin, makeup and nails to give you an edgy, yet work-appropriate, look.
HAIR: Spice up your color to give your costume an extra pop – without any long-term commitment. oVertone is a non-damaging color conditioner that replaces your normal hair conditioner. The products are vegan, sulfate-free, paraben-free, ammonia-free and cruelty-free. With how popular Unicorn and Mermaid-esque hair color trends are, this product is a game-changing discovery for a lot of people who are looking to create these looks.
To use, just apply on wet or dry hair (or human hair wigs and extensions), and rinse with warm/hot water, so no more cold showers. Use the Daily Conditioner every time you wash your hair to replace pigment typically lost during normal washes. Deep Treatments have an extra boost of color and hydration, which are recommended as a weekly sub-in for the Dailies, or for initial coloring until you get to your desired color. Continue usage to keep color bold, discontinue usage to let color fade out - the staying power is equivalent to a semi-permanent. Let your creativity run wild! Mix and match any of the 24 fantasy shades to create the perfect custom blend. You can purchase it at https://overtone.co.
SKIN: One popular Instagram trend is multi-masking, which is especially good for combination skin. You can create a customized skincare regime using specific products for different parts of your face. To multi-mask, apply or layer different masks simultaneously on your skin to combat different issues at one time. This efficient skin-care regime is the ultimate treatment to address all of your skin concerns and save time.
The Black Peeling Facial Mask from Dermophisiologique has microspheres of active carbon, for gentle exfoliation and smoothing action. You can treat yourself with a specially-priced $99 Black Peel Facial at Beauté Therapies Medical Spa at 360 Beauty, Health, Wellness in West Palm Beach. During the month of October, 5% of each of those facials will be donated to the Palm Beach County Chapter of the American Cancer Society as part of Spa & Wellness Month in The Palm Beaches, by Discover The Palm Beaches. You can book your treatment at https://www.thepalmbeaches.com/deals/black-peel-facial.
The First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay contains a potent concentration of Red Clay to draw out skin impurities. In just 20 minutes, it detoxifies, purifies, diminishes shine, and alleviates clogged pores. The mineral-rich red clay also reduces congestive pigmentation in problem areas where pimples previously formed and improves the look of skin’s texture.

MAKEUP: If you want to look hip for Halloween, but still make it to work and look professional, try a funky lip color that’s just a touch bolder than normal. Crunchi’s Luxe Lipstick in First
Avenue is a satin finish, long-lasting lipstick that’s a perfect blend of nourishing organic ingredients and contemporary, smooth pigments. Try the shade “First Avenue,” a flattering purple shade that is sure to get you noticed!
Crunchi was founded in The Palm Beaches by two local mothers who wanted truly safe, high-quality cosmetics. The entire line of products is made with a combination of safe and certified organic ingredients, so everything is toxin free and high-performing. You can rest assured that you are getting all the health benefits without having to compromise. They took the term Crunchy - which is a trendy term describing individuals who are health conscious - and changed the “y” to “i” because they are redefining what is means to be Crunchi. The company says Crunchi with an ‘“i” is for someone who does not compromise health for beauty or beauty for health. Crunchi is the chic, classy, sophisticated version of “crunchy.” You can purchase the products at https://crunchi.com.
NAILS: Try a spooky manicure to keep the theme going on your fingertips – that’s enough to be a cute costume! Kendra Scott is a popular brand for jewelry, but did you know the company also offers nail lacquer? Try the Black Onyx or Goldstone for the perfect Halloween colors. You can also branch out with True Red (a perfect blood-red shade), or even the Black Drusy for a more glittery look. All of these colors are 5-free formulas, cruelty-free, and are inspired by gemstones.
During October, if you purchase the Light Pink Drusy Nail Lacquer, the company will donate 20% of the purchase price of the item to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and will gift a piece of jewelry with a handwritten note to a woman battling breast cancer. To purchase, visit the Kendra Scott store in The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens, or online at https://www.kendrascott.com/new-now/trending-now/nail-lacquer.
