Halloween Weekend

895

Since Halloween is on a weekday and I will be working, I celebrated over the weekend. My friend Christina had a Halloween party, so I went to that on Saturday. I didn’t get many pictures because my phone died super fast. It was 100% charged when I left the house, and within a couple hours it had died.

I didn’t have that much time to plan out a makeup look, so I just smeared some fake blood gel on my face (which took me 2 minutes) and went as a zombie. I was really impressed with this fake blood though. A few years ago, I bought some crappy fake blood that was really runny and didn’t look like the real thing at all. It was orange and stained my skin. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case this time. It actually looked like real blood, and it washed off super easily without leaving any color behind.

Halloween Makeup Look: Betelgeuse

Time for Halloween look #2! The previous look I did, I primarily used eyeshadows. With this look, I primarily used face paint. The great thing about these face paints is that they wash right off with a little bit of water, so the cleanup was easy.

I’ve been wanting to do a Beetlejuice inspired look from the beginning, but I was hesitant to do one since it seems like so many people are doing them this year for some reason. I don’t really like to be trendy or jump on the bandwagon, I like to just do my own thing. However, since I was planning on doing a look like this for a while, I decided to go ahead with it. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, although it is a bit sloppy in places. My line work isn’t the best, but I have very little experience with this kind of thing, so I guess it’s not too bad for a beginner.

Halloween Makeup Look: Hybrid

It’s officially October! You know what that means? Halloween! Yes, Halloween is all month long, not just one day. To celebrate, I plan to do some different Halloween makeup looks all month long. My goal is to do one a week, but I’m not entirely sure that will work out. If not, I at least I want to do three looks this month.

This is my first one. I figured I would start off with something less creepy and more dreamy. I call this look “Hybrid” because it’s kind of a cross between an alien and a clown. I used an app to change my hair and eye colors just to enhance the look a little bit, and add to its fantasy factor. It’s a little sloppy, but I didn’t have any wigs or colored contacts.

For the makeup, I used a combination of eyeshadow, face paint, highlighter, glitter, and white eyeliner and mascara. Overall, I think this look turned out okay. I really didn’t have a plan or an idea of what I wanted to do. I just started putting color on my face and went from there.

Halloween Party & Decorations

334

Saturday evening I went to my friend/relative’s Halloween party. Only about half the people who were invited came, which I know bummed her out a little bit. It was the same for me because I would have loved to have seen everyone too. However, just because a ton of people doesn’t show up, doesn’t mean you can’t still have a great time. That’s exactly what we did too. Sadly, I had to leave just as things were really getting lively. My mom was my designated driver, and she came to get me pretty early because she was tired. Oh well, at least I got to get out for a little while.

As I mentioned in a previous post, my friend goes crazy with decorating her house for Halloween. She said she wasn’t able to get all of her decorations out this year due to time restraints and not feeling well, but I thought her house and yard still looked pretty awesome. I made sure to take pictures of most of the decorations.

Halloween Mystery Bag

309

As I mentioned in my 13 Things on Etsy You Need If You Love Halloween post, I ordered this Halloween mystery bag from SugarMilkCo and told you I would post my thoughts once I received it. I was absolutely excited to receive this and see what goodies I got. It was also my first time ordering from this little vegan bath and body shop, and if you continue reading, you’ll find it was a bit of a hit and a miss.

Questions:

What’s your favorite Fall outfit?
To be honest, I generally just wear the same type of clothes year-round, so I don’t have a favorite. I tend to stick with jeans and a t-shirt, and when it’s chilly I put a hoodie over top. Although, I do have a purple hoodie that I really like. I also have a dark blue fuzzy sweater that I like to wear in the Fall and Winter, but I hate that it’s hand-wash only. I would love to wear more sweaters if it wasn’t for that.

What is Fall weather like where you live?
Here in Maryland, we always joke about how we experience four seasons within one week. It seems to change from day to day. For example, the other day was cloudy and rainy in the 60’s. The next day it was sunny and in the 80’s, feeling like peak Summer. Then at night, it drops down to the 30’s and 40’s, feeling like Winter. We’ve even gotten snow in the Fall before. I’ll never forget the snow storm we got some years ago. It happened on Halloween. It was snowing all day, temperatures were in the 30’s, and it knocked our power out for 12 hours. I spent the entire day in bed just trying to stay warm. Thankfully, most of the snow we get does not knock our power out. That was just a particularly windy and wet snow storm.
