Happy Halloween!

Over the weekend I went to a Halloween party. I didn't know what I was going to be until Thursday. When I was at the mall and happened to go into Hot Topic and found a UNICORN costume kit. soooo obviously I bought it. What type of make up is magical enough for a mythical creature as glorious as this?? this make up:

This was the make up I wore to school today. It's more tame than the one I did for the weekend. Scroll to the bottom for that look :)

Products used:
NYX white eyeshadow base
Sugarpill's Dollipop (pink, and on cheeks as well)
BH Cosmetics 88 matte pallete (orange)
Sugarpill's Butter Cupcake (yellow)
Sugarpill's Madori (green)
Sugarpill's Afterparty (Blue)
Sugarpill's Poison Plum (purple)
Urban Decay's Gunmetal (crease)
Sephora's Alpine (highlights. eye and cheek)

To make even better: ADD GLITTER.
I just put the appropriate glitter on top of each color. I wish this was okay for day time.

Glitter: a sampler from michael's craft store.
I used LA Splash to make the glitter stick

Clownin' around

So Im pretty sure that for one night of this Halloween weekend I'm going to be a clown. So tonight, I tried out the look to see how it would look on me and for me to get it right before I wear it out in public. A full face of make up is something you want to get just right before showing the world! So here's my look. Its almost a combo of a joker and a clown...

Sad Clown

Still sad clown

Geisha Clown!!

I tried this lip first then did the over-lined lips. I ended up liking the over-lined ones better because they just seem more 'clown' to me. For the actual night I'm going to put on some GIANT eyelashes. but because I really hate putting those on, I only do it when I really need to.

Products used:
face: Kryolan Aqua Color in white with Sugarpill's Tako over to set it.
Sugarpill's Bulletproof to contour cheek bones
Blue: Sugarpill's Starling (wet)
Gold (outline the blue): Sugarpill's Goldilux (wet)
Kat Von D liquid eye liner with some black glitter on top (Martha Stuarts 'Onyx') for eye brows too
lips: Milani Lip Flash in Hot Flash with Sugarpill's Love+ over
Rhinestones :)

Cotton Candy

Inspired by the fluffy bright bundle that is Cotton Candy. I don't really like to eat the stuff, but I do like how it looks. So, naturally,  I thought id wear it on my face. Isn't that your first thought too?? no????? Oh. well, in case you wanted to, here it is!

Products used:
Too Faced 'Boy Toy' on lid
Sugarpill's 'Decora' over Boy Toy
Sugarpill's 'Afterparty' in crease and blended up. I think I mixed in a little bit of a periwinkle color from Inglot (#388)
Sugarpill's 'Poison Plum' where the pink and blue meet to help the transition and a little extra in the outer crease
drag the blues and purple onto the lower lid
highlight with Sugarpill's 'Tako'
finish with eyeliner and mascara!

Into the night

I was strolling through a Sephora a long time ago and found the best things ever. nail stickers! That is not the official name for them, but its really what they are. They are like the Sally Hanson ones that everyone is wearing. but these ones are cooler and cheaper!! At $7 these babies are a steal! so stock up and never go to the salon again! This is my second time doing these. The first time I got a whole 7 days of wonderful wear out of them before I had to take them off for work. My nails are rather thin so color and polish doesn't stay for more than 2 or 3 days. but that was not the case with these! Im hooked.

I really should have had my best friend do them because shes amazing at nails, and I am not. Im happy if the color is on and I dont worry too much if it gets on my cuticle or anything. I still cannot stop staring at my nails tho!

Don't you want to touche them?

Products used:
Sephora collection Nail Bling in Gold Bubbles
for under color I mixed a clear polish with some Magpie from Sugarpill to create a lovely dark blue color

Sun and Moon

I did this make up for a date night, and when I finished I was reminded of the wonderful song by Above & Beyond called Sun and Moon. If anything could melt away worries, its these guys. They also host a weekly 2 hour podcast called Trance Around the World. I listen to it religiously. Well, anyways, this blog is about make up, not trance music haha. So here's my face!

Products used:
Gold is Sugarpill's Goldilux
dark blue (crease and outer lid) Inglot's number 428
Sugarpill's Afterparty on middle lid and upper crease
a dab of Sugarpill's Bulletproof in the very outer crease
swing some of that Inglot on down to your lower lid and throw in some pretty purple too!
for inner corner highlight I just used a very pale gold color. and on the brow I used a matte off white
