Crimson Fangs

Crimson Fangs


Here's something different from me in the spirit of Halloween, I think that this was subconsciously inspired by the red Eva Di Martino of "Pure Black Love" who is ridiculously talented.

I started out with a general idea in mind and ended up with this.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Freshly Cut Citrus (The Body Needs)

Freshly Cut Citrus (The Body Needs)

Here is a bright yellow-Orange with a dark cut crease. I used midnight aura at the base of the cut crease, then blended it out to lighten it with Harmony. Still need more practice on doing a cut-crease, but I thought I'd share anyway. Sorry I don't have any full face ones, but I was running late so I had no lipstick on and my hair was just up in the usual boring bun.


Hope you like it!

Antique Dolly

Antique Dolly




I've been really inspired lately by some of the looks I've seen on pinterest.com and themakeupbee.com. I didn't have anything in mind except for something kind of creepy but pretty & very dramatic with a solid white base using some paint from last halloween.

I used some beige and pink flower accessories, did big hair, and used some floral scraps to bunch together and tie into a loose knot for a scarf. I didn't do such a great job covering the brows but overall I'm really happy with the way this one came out.

I really hope you like it!

Dark 50's


Dark 50's

For this look I wanted to do a 50's style pin-up girl but a darker, gothic version with heavier black makeup on the eyes. I decided to go matte on the eyes and deep (glossy) red on the lips. Did a messy twist to the side, with a black and white polka-dot top & black chain bow earrings. 

Hope you like it :)

Pink Waters

Pink Waters

This is a look per my husbands request; he asked me to do a look using bright pink and blue. I had fun playing & matching colors with my earrings and my shirt. I'm not happy with the lipstick & lip liner, the colors really didn't go well with the eyeshadow. There's a mistake I learned from- sorry about that :\
