MIMI'S GUIDE TO ON POINT HALLOWEEN MAKEUP

What is the most important factor for choosing what type of makeup products you use on an illusion makeup look?

“When I'm creating an illusion, it can take several hours of intense concentration so it's important that I use products that are easy to apply, reliable, vibrant, versatile, and long lasting.”

What’s one product you would want an endless supply of?

“The one product that I use consistently for all of my looks is the NYX White Liquid Eyeliner. It's perfect for painting small, precise highlight points which is especially useful when I do my realistic eye looks.”
