Hallowe'en Makeup!

Okay, so it's a tad late, but I figured after reading Rue's comment about Hallowe'en makeup, I figured I'd share the makeup I did this year. So here I am:

I was the last minute costume girl this year. So I decided on semi-traditional Día de los Muertos makeup. I completed the look with a black scarf around my head (my bangs actually OFF my forehead for the first time since middle school--LOL!), red roses on either side of my face, big hoop earrings, a dangly necklace, black chemise, black corset, red shawl tied around my waist, and carrying maracas from Mexico (a friend brought them back from her honeymoon) and a Virgin of Guadalupe candle.

Here is Chris, done up a our Doorkeeper:

This was a great picture that Crowskin took on a neighbour's front lawn, that was thoroughly covered in bright leaves.

Here is a close up shot of his makeup:

All he wanted was "something gothic and creepy", so that's what I ran with. Not bad for never having done aging makeup, eh?

Most awesome!

Mm, adorable. That make up tells me that you like a challenge, so here is one. I've tagged you to spread holiday cheer, here is the link if you want to play along

You both look fantastic!

Zedral Z said...

Cool! I did something very similar myself. I take it you're also a fan of Sylvia Ji's beautiful ladies? :)

Rue said...

Oh cool! Thanks for the show and tell!

Having just come back from Mexico and seeing so many skulls and skeleton ladies dressed up and painted so prettily - I LOVE your makeup!!

And the deathly pale make up on your "doorkeeper" is wonderful too! Yay to you!

I think it's freaking amazing! I could barely get circles on my little 'clowns' faces! LOL

You have a gift.
