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!)
Japanese Geisha (2011)
007 Bond Girl (2013)
Little Devil (2014)
Which came from a much earlier inspiration....
Black Swan (2014)
(A last minute costume idea! This needs very minimal makeup.)
Will share this year's costume soon enough! ;-)
