How to Have a Beautiful Halloween in NYC


New York City is the place to celebrate Halloween. With chilly weather, endless themed costume parties, and characters of all kinds walking the streets, makeup factors heavily into the season and its accompanying looks.

While makeup tutorials and beauty classes are readily available for anyone who wants to learn how to apply beauty and glam makeup, what about for Halloween?

If you are not an expert in advanced theatrical makeup, that’s more than okay. You don’t need to be. You still have the option for a one-stop shop to learn how to do Halloween makeup. Or if you’re already good with makeup and just need a little direction on technique, there are advanced apps that can help guide you.

Halloween Beauty Bar At Blushington: You can upgrade your Halloween makeup with Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge, the first-of-its-kind, premier makeup service destination lounge. From now through November 1, Blushington will add four premium Halloween makeup looks to their menu. Whether you’re going all out with your costume or keeping it low key, these makeup looks will put you on the “best costumed” and “best made up” list every time.

Options are below.

· All Dolled Up (Raggedy Ann-inspired)
· Dead Gorgeous (Sugar Skull)
· Beauty District (Hunger Games-inspired)
· Pop Princess (Roy Lichtenstein-inspired)

Price: $100, includes desired look and faux lashes, available at all Blushington locations in NYC (Le Parker Meridien119 West 56th Street New York, NY 10019), Dallas and Los Angeles.
