Sugar Skull Glam; Frighteningly Beautiful

So I know it’s still awhile away… But I just can’t help myself…

I LOVE Halloween!

Last year I decided to do a sugar skull glam look.

One, because it cost me NOTHING, and two, we were invited to a Halloween party last minute…

 

I’m not going to lie, it took a good deal of time for me to do, mainly because I had absolutely NO face paint. That’s right, I did this ENTIRE look with eyeshadow & eyeliner. Even the white.

A few things I learned from doing it that way. It lasted WAY longer than it would have if I’d used face paint AND I didn’t have to worry about cracking or peeling! Yay!!!

I wish I would have gone in with more color around the eye, but besides that I was totally in love with it.

Halfway though my make-up my lovely stepfather arrived to pick Aria up to keep her for the night so we could go out…

Poor thing, I’m pretty sure my make up freaked her out a bit.

After she left with her Papa Hue, I got to work and finished the look & added hair extensions, which I actually took out on the way to the party because I changed my mind, and took a ton of photos just in-case it got messed up on the way there and I needed to do touch ups.

No touch ups needed! I stayed perfect for a good 8 hours! I probably could have went to sleep with it on and woke up without a smudge!

 

I HATED HAVING TO WASH IT AWAY THAT NIGHT!

Not because it was hard to get off, I just didn’t want to see it go!

Since the party was a few days before actual Halloween, I decided to do something more baby friendly when we went Trick-or-Treating.

In-case you didn’t guess it from the make-up, I was Thing 1! My flash did a number on that sign! Geez!

And little miss Aria was my Thing 2 🙂

Christopher obviously went as himself that night. Oh The Horror!

Daily “Photoshop”

I NEVER understood why women get so upset over photoshoped models in magazines because 95% of woman “photoshop” their faces every morning.

Yes, that is me. This is the original photo.

It’s AMAZING to see the difference when you only apply your make-up to half your face.

Honestly, I don’t understand why I waist my time doing my make-up. I don’t look bad without it…

Oh yeah, thats right, because people look down on you if you walk out your door with a bare face.

I wonder what people’s reactions would be if I walked into a store with only half my face done. Would they stare? Probably. Laugh? Most Definitely. Approach me and ask me about it? Probably not.

Inner Beauty

Such an inspirational video! I was shocked the second she removed the make-up. I never would have known she had Vitiligo. She’s still stunningly beautiful inside and out.
