Makeup and Muses: Halloween Makeup Looks
Halloween is upon us so I hope you muses are all geared up for the festivities with your costumes, candy and creepy crawlers. I thought I'd give you guys some fun Halloween makeup looks that you can accomplish for any last-minute costumes.
Pop art comic book girl is my absolute favorite look right now. Everything about it is super cool, and I actually haven't seen anyone do this in person yet, but I hope I get to see it this year. Cora of Vintage or Tacky has a superb tutorial on how to get the look.
Going grayscale is a Halloween makeup look that immediately caught my attention because it's so old school and recognizable. Plus, this makeup adds more texture to practically any film noir star of the 1940s like Vivien Leigh, Mae West, Dorothy Dandridge and more. Great tutorial by Whitney Avalon.
Quick story: When I was a child, I wasn't allowed to go trick-or-treating because my parents did not believe in Halloween. I've only ever done it once in my life, and I had to trick-or-treat in a mall because my parents thought it was safer than wandering through the neighborhood getting candy from somewhat strangers.
As an adult, I've enjoyed Halloween as a fun occasion to dress up. As a fashion blogger, you know I love to dress up. Of course, I've done my fair share of skimpy pirate wench costumes, but recently I've been into more creative looks like Jack & Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas two years ago, and Daenerys Targaryen (aka Khaleesi) this year. Would love to be Neytiri next year.
What is your Halloween costume this year?
