Halloween & Day of the Dead Looks

Snow White makeup and hair

Should I take a bite?

There’s two kinds of people: Halloween people and Christmas people. I am definitely a Halloween person. I love it! Every year at the library, we all dress up in costumes according to a certain theme and give away candy to the students. We’ve done book characters, movie characters (Uma Thurman from Pulp Fiction), TV characters (Joan Collins’ Dynasty character), and music stars (Amy Winehouse). This year we all decided to be fairy tale characters. I just knew I HAD to be Snow White. Continue reading

“Day of the Dead” Make-up Look

Day of the Dead Makeup

For my Día de Muertos or “Day of the Dead” party, I did a sugar-skull inspired make-up look. Here’s a quick look at the products I used:

Makeup 137

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer
  • MAC blackground paint pot
  • MAC smolder eye kohl
  • MAC greensmoke eyeshadow (not pictured)
  • NYX black eyeshadow single
  • Milani Color Statement lip liner in true red
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in milk
  • Ardell false lashes
  • any small, pointed brush

I actually didn’t use anything to make my skin paler – I just skipped any bronzer or blush and this is how pale I look (lol). I used eyeshadow primer all around and under my eyes where I painted the black circles. For all of the black areas, I used MAC blackground paint pot and MAC smolder eye kohl, and I set it with NYX black eyeshadow (any matte black shadow would do).

I used MAC greensmoke eyeshadow on my lid to give my eyes a bit more dimension. For the red scallop pattern and dots  I used the red lip liner outlined with the black eye kohl.

On my lips I used the milk Jumbo Eye Pencil and the MAC smolder eye kohl. I was surprised how well this stayed in place all night.

I made the flower headpiece myself using a headband, some Dollar Store fake flowers and a hot glue gun. It was super simple.
