Kids all over the nation will be dressing up for Halloween with makeup, but some of it may actually be harmful.

Senator Charles Schumer is warning parents that some of that makeup may contain harmful metals such as lead.

Schumer wants to stop allowing any makeup products containing metals from being sold in the U.S.

The Senator is also urging parents to read the ingredients on face paint and makeup before putting it on your child.

The Centers for Disease Control says that even low levels of lead getting into your child’s bloodstream can affect their IQ and their ability to perform academically.
