The boutique that I work at recently hosted another beauty gala! This gala was a big makeup and nail event to support the LGFB (Look Good Feel Better) association for women battling cancer. We had a lovely nail technician come in to do manicures, and all the proceeds from the manicure appointments and tickets, and goodie bags were donated. 

We had reps from different brands come in for demonstrations and makeovers, and I got to meet so many wonderful people.

I also got the opportunity to do makeup on my aunt for a wedding!

I had hoped to put together an amazing costume with full, crazy makeup. Then life decided to get in the way, and I got sick yesterday. I strongly contemplated not doing anything for a costume-something about coughing up a storm and sticking tissues up your nose can be a huge buzz kill. 

Yet, I knew that I would regret not dressing up. Halloween only comes once a year, and it truly is one of my favourite times of the year. I had been so excited, and looking forward to Halloween since the spring time. So I forced myself to get off the couch, take some cold medicine, and put a costume together. 

I decided to go for a ghoul/witch vibe, wearing a long black maxi dress with a sheer, long black robe over top (thanks for keeping all your clothes from the 80’s and 90’s, mom!) 

As for the makeup, I knew I wanted to go for a paler look with extreme contouring, and something creepy on the eyes.

I used white face paint (a cheap kind from a Halloween Store, which I definitely won’t be purchasing again-hard to blend, not a nice texture!) And set it with a light translucent powder from Cover FX. For the brows, I went over them with a glue stick and concealer prior to the white face paint to help neutralize and hide my eyebrows. 

For the eyes, I lined my top and bottom water line with a red pencil liner by Lancôme, and then used a red pigment by Mac and pressed that into my lower lash line and just above my top lash line. I then used “Blackout” from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, and blended that along my top lid and crease area, as well using it to contour my nose, cheeks, and under eye area. I blended a little more of the red pigment into the cheek contour. I also dusted some white eyeshadow on to my lashes to make them look more pale and creepy. 

For the brows, I used a black gel liner by SST Cosmetics with a fine tipped eyeliner brush. For the lips, I used a black Smashbox eyeliner to line my lips, and blended the lines inward. I went overtop with “Diva” by Mac. 

To complete the look, I teased my hair like crazy! I scared a few trick-or-treaters, which I take as a sign of success! It didn’t turn out exactly how I had imagined, but for a last-minute look I was relatively pleased with it! 

What did you guys do for Halloween? I’d love to see some of your looks!
