    What's your favorite part of Halloween?


    Mine is the prep time before trick-o-treatin' and the costume parties because you can get really creative with your makeup skills. I do my own makeup -- often, it's a last-minute and ad-hoc attempt to put something together on the day itself!


    The makeup is an essential part of the costume: it can make or break the look and sometimes it's the focal point of the character. So, this year, I decided I wanted to look into Halloween makeup ideas that might be interesting to replicate. Moreover, I looked into Halloween makeup looks that are timely and relevant in 2016.


    But before that, below is look back over the years of my different makeup looks during Halloween/costume parties.  (I'm so glad I found them for your because I thought these Halloween mementos were long lost from old / stolen / out-of-commission phones!)
