Green Your Halloween: DIY Makeup

Green makeup recipes for a wicked costumeIt's almost time for ghosts, witches, and zombies to roam the streets in search of treats. This week, we'll help you prepare to celebrate Halloween without making the state of the planet any scarier.

Tip #2: Make your own makeup.

There's no need to paint your face with frightening chemical concoctions this Halloween. Consult Sierra's list of eco-friendly cosmetics and Blisstree's roundup of green makeup to find products you can use for the haunted holiday and year round.

For that once-a-year, over-the-top ghoulish look, try making your own Halloween makeup. Find recipes for face paint from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and fake skin (for wounds and warts) from the Smart Mama. Want to see how easy it is to mix up some witchy makeup?
