This year's Halloween costume was more work to piece together than to do my makeup look. I still had to find the right colors and products to use.
I was Hello Kitty this year. I found the headband with ears and bow already put together at Hot Topic for only $9.50. I bought white leggings at Target on clearance for $2.50 and a white t-shirt there too on clearance for about $5 or so. Then I bought red fabric and large white butons and used a McCalls pattern I had used before to sew a jumper. I altered it a little bit and made the straps a bit wider and made the jumper a bit bigger to look more like Hello Kitty. The sewing didn't take too long so I finished it in an afternoon. I added a Hello Kitty necklace, some silver and red earrings and black mary janes to finish off the whole look. Not sure if I have any full length costume pics. If anyone from the party shares a pic, I will share it with you.
Then it was time to put my makeup together. I used 100% Pure Luminizing Face Primer on my face and eyes. After that I wanted a foundation that was a bit too light for my skin to look a bit whiter but not pure white. I found one of the foundation samples from Alima Pure in Beige 0 and that worked well. I applied a heavy coverage with that. Then I applied Bare Minerals Illuminating (feather light) mineral veil. I applied false eyelashes for the first time. My Influenster VoxBox for Beauty Bloggers had some in it and I tested the glue on my arm in a patch test and had no reaction so I wore them for the party. I didn't get them lined up perfectly with my lash line but I still thing they looked great and they didn't bother me like I expected. So fun!
I applied Vapour Organic Beauty Mesmerize Eyeliner/Smoky Eye Tool in Black Velvet to apply my whiskers on my cheeks. I mixed Bare Minerals eyeshadows in Hay and Petunia to get a good yellow for my nose. I added some saline and applied it wet to my nose and then put Bare Minerals Mineral Veil over everything to keep it set on my skin. I lined my eyes with Lavera Liquid Eyeliner in Black and applied some 100% Pure mascara in Black Tea to my own lashes so they didn't stand out against the false lashes. Finally, I added Bare Minerals Glee and Love Radiance to my cheeks and finished the look with Ilia Beauty Bang Bang on my lips. Here are some pics!
