Halloween Recap

4 Nov

Hello, all! As promised, here’s my Halloween costume for this year, minus the actual costume (the makeup was much more interesting, promise). I wore it to a party where apparently it was customary to dress up as something attractive and cleavage-y. Oops, missed the memo there. Ya’ll looked fantastical, though. hades collage

It’s horrifyingly awful, but I also kind of loved it.hades collage 2

On the left is an unedited version, and on the right I darkened the lipstick where the camera’s flash washed it out and added yellow eyes. I wish I had real yellow contacts…add that to my Christmas list! Also black ones and red ones and white ones and green ones…hades collage 3

I kind of look like a comic book villain or something (not at all my intention, but not bad). The lines were for a cartoon-y effect, of course, which could’ve been better executed, but I was in a hurry. I had a zombie to paint. hades collage 4

Look, Kat, now I have the mermaid hair 🙂

Curiously enough, this post just filled up the free 3G of space I got from WordPress when I started this blog last May. Time to go buy some more, I suppose.

How was your Halloween? It’s my favorite day of the whole year, and I only have 361 days left to wait!

Halloween Makeup | Clown Skull Eyes

19 Oct

Behold: Halloween makeup for the truly lazy. Or goth-esque makeup for every day, I spose. Maybe minus the Sharpie brows.

For this guy, I wanted to combine the hollowed-out eye socket look of skull/sugar skull makeup with the generic triangular shapes of clown makeup. It turned out a bit like a painting, I think.clown collage 2

I didn’t have time for a full face of demon-clown-skull, but if you were to go all the way with this one, I’d bring the black eyeshadow in a circle around the eye area and paint in a dark red nose hole and some creepy clown lips over a skull mouth. Best of both worlds.

And don’t forget the creepy contacts! Again, I am lacking in this department.

Enjoy the amusing eye expressions.clown collage 3 I didn’t have time or motivation for both eyes, so excuse this mirrored picture. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a “mirror” button for those mornings when even the simple act of putting on makeup is exhausting? Or when one winged eyeliner looks great and you’re afraid of totally mucking up the second one? So many possibilities…clown collage 5

♦ Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Blackmail

♦ Wet ‘n Wild Eyeshadows in Panther and Creme Brulee
