Home / Family & Education / HALLOWEEN SPECIAL: Localiiz Gets its FREAK On!


Halloween makeup can make or break a costume. Add the perfect amount of forward planning, practice runs, and water to your face painting palette, and you could end up being the evil belle of the ball. Take a wrong turn and get carried away, however, and you could end up stuck in a gooey, messy nightmare.


To avoid a makeup mishap, why not just take a page out of our spooky spell book and hire the professionals to do the job? We literally jumped at the chance to go under the brush and receive a freaky makeover with the talented team of Face Slap body painters, whose quirky, creative, and often downright wacky designs have grabbed the attention of Hong Kong party goers since the company launched here in 2015.

Whether you’re going for ‘sexy’ or ‘creepy’, these girls sure know how to pull off the look you’re after – and naturally, we went for the latter. One hour with our magical unicorn makeup artist, Jesa Mae Amparo (pictured above), and we were ready to hit Phocus Selfie Station for our spooky dooky photo shoot – and maybe scare some children along the way!

So ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, may we present to you the Cirque Du Soleil and Mexican Sugar Skull duo who are the Localiiz ladies …
