Wardrobe Wednesday: Halloween makeup

swan

So, I'm thinking of being a Black Swan for Halloween. And, the way I think about being things is by sitting at home in front of my mirror, applying, removing, and re-applying makeup. All. night. long.

I'm not sure the pasty-white look agrees with me, though, so I might alter it a bit. And there's always that chance that people might just mistake me for a KISS fan in a ballerina skirt, but that's the risk of living in a city with a disproportionate heavy metal fanbase, I guess. :)

I was inspired by these 2 videos:






I'm always in awe of how people who do makeup well make it look so effortless. I can barely line my eyes!

I'm also really inspired by the awesome Dia de los Muertos makeup I've been seeing on the web:



I have no credit for that image, by the way - it's been Tumblr'd so often - let me know if you know the source so I can credit it!

I doubt that I could reproduce this, but it's awesome:




Yup, I'm keeping it creepy - what are you gonna be this Halloween? :)

Fantastic job on the makeup!!!! I had a friend who just went to a party as the black swan and another who went as a white swan! That dia de los muertos make up is awesome!

Last night we threw my stepdad a 65th bday party and I was Amy Winehouse (which seemed appropriate since my hair is waist long now). It was a fun costume, but that black hair spray is NASTY stuff!!!
Happy Sunday!

Awesome! I hope you take lots of pictures so that I can see!

Thanks, Nicky! Funny that you say that because I was looking at a picture of myself from Saturday night and from far away I look more like Amy Winehouse than the Black Swan, ha ha. :) Yeah that hair color spray is sticky and gross. I prefer wigs + they keep your head warm. ;)
