Happy Halloween! (Friday prompt at the bottom!)

Friday, October 31, 2008

I was so excited to do a Halloween look this year!! I haven’t done it for years, and I’m not doing it this year, either. But I did do one a few weeks ago for you!!

I’m not sure what it is – something pretty, at the very least. I had “really awesome cylon alien” in my head, plus the cover of “Specials” (Scott Westerfield; a terrible author with some great ideas)

Used:

  • EDM Sandy Fair Original Glo (Matte would have worked better for the look). Applied wet to get full coverage; the blank slate look worked well for this!
  • Annabelle liquid liner, in black, for the swirls
  • My HG liner, Estee Lauder’s Artliner, for my lash line!
  • Fyrinnae Polar Bear, but only in one picture (which unfortunately came out fuzzy!) I tried this right before taking it off, and the lighting sucked, plus my camera ran out of battery after just the one. But the gold = definitely cool addition.
  • Eyedrops to make the pigment adhere better.

See? Super-easy!

Photos:
*unfortunately, what looks very even in real life ends up a little blotchy due to macro settings and numerous screen layers to compensate for terrible lighting x.x

The gold addition!
(sorry, shitty quality, as mentioned.)


The whole thing

The front
(I love the eye area)

Why do my brows always
look so funny from above??

And now for Friday stuff!

What are you doing for Halloween this year? (Alternate questions: when was the last time you did Halloween, or what’s the most fabulous thing you’ve ever dressed up as?)

  3. FB: ^^ Glad to see someone else did!! lolSuzie: It's so obscure to have a water balloon fight on Halloween… most years, there's already snow on the ground here! :P

    Hey Rae, that looks really cool! Makes me think of a woodland fairy elf or something… some magical, flighty creature that lives in the forests of fairy tales.This year, I went at Evil Alice (Alice, after she'd been lost in Wonderland and went insane). I liked last year's better though… a broken marionette, with my BF as the creepy puppet-master. Year before that I was a preggers cheerleader. :D

  11. !!I love your Halloween costume ideas! If I was that inventive, I would totally still be dressing up :P
