TODAY IS HALLOWEEN! THE BEST HOLIDAY!
Okay, simma down. But really, I love dressing up & painting up my face for Halloween. I figured I’d share my costumes this year in hopes of giving you all some inspiration, because that is what I am here for my friends. 🙂
(I apologize, I didn’t have the opportunity to take high quality photos, but these iPhone pics will do!)
My first costume was SUPER last minute. I had a skeleton body suit from a costume a few years ago (when I won a costume contest!!) so I decided to use that. When I wore the bodysuit previously, I wore it with just tights but because this was last minute, I wore it with leggings over it and a sheer cover up. I got my make up inspiration from this video, but I made it simpler. I literally did this whole look with a Revlon eyeliner, Sephora black eyeshadow, and Stila Kitten glitter eyeshadow. So anyone should be able to recreate this look!
My next costume was my big costume that I have been planning for months because that’s the type of person I am.
This costume was a ‘Dead Mermaid” (or dark mermaid or skeleton mermaid). SO OBSESSED. Can I dress like this everyday? Because it speaks to my soul. The top was DIY. I used a seamless bandeau because I didn’t want to just wear a bra top or bathing suit top. Then I simply just hot glued shells onto it. I got some inspiration from this blog!
For the scales, I used fishnet tights which I am sure you have seen tutorials for. I used the Melt Cosmetics Gunmetal Stack, the Urban Decay Electric Palette, & Kat Von D Ink Liner.
My last costume is what I wore on Halloween night – Scar from Disney’s Lion King! I was SO in love with this make up!
“Hey, Uncle Scar, when I’m king, what’ll that make you?”
“A monkey’s uncle. -_- “
What’s your favorite costume you’ve ever dressed as?
