Feeling My Look: Freakin’ Halloweekend

Happy November, everyone!  So I’m going to do my second consecutive FML post, because it was Halloween and I have to show you all the amazing look I did for me and my best friend.  We decided kind of last-minute to be vampires, which was perfect, since I’ve been experimenting with gothic colors!  I have so much fun doing makeup-centric costumes, because it means I get to focus on the art of beauty.  Check out our looks and the amazing products I used…

Products:

  1. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick in ‘Warm Beige’ – Flawless foundation is the key for when you’re going to be wearing more makeup than usual.
  2. e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder – I love this very inexpensive HL/C palette.  I used the bronzer on my nose and hollows of my cheeks for a heavier contour than my usual.
  3. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends in ‘Sunkissed’ – Even though vampires aren’t supposed to be out in daylight, I always like to be glowing a little bit!  Unlike the e.l.f. palette, this is my usual bronzer that I swipe over my entire face for a gentle tan.
  4. Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in ‘Champagne Pop’ – I put this on the bridge of my nose, cheekbones, brow bones, and cupid’s bow for the most gorgeous highlighting.
  5. Milani Baked Powder Blush in ‘Berry Amore’ – This mauve blush is a great complement to the darker purple eyeshadows I used.
  6. Dior Brow Styler Brow Pencil in ‘Universal Shade’ – I have very pale eyebrows, so I have to shade them in.  Between my blonde brows and blonde eyelashes, I look rather hairless without makeup on, haha!
  7. Clinique Lid Smoothie™ Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour – Instead of my usual primer, I used a gorgeous lavender shade of this liquid eye shadow that doesn’t seem to be available anymore.
  8. Urban Decay Naked Palette – The OG of the Naked palettes, I love how versatile and long-wearing these shades are.  I used the Hustle, Toasted, and Virgin swatches to create our lid looks!
  9. NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner – This eyeliner does both a gorgeous clean line and can be smudged into a gorgeous smokey eye.  I did a smoky wing blended with the gorgeous dark metallics.
  10. Ardell Individual Lashes – This was my first time putting false lashes on myself, but it wasn’t too hard with these guys.  I only put two on the corners of each eye to emphasize the winged, smoked out look.
  11. L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara – One of my favorite, and most long-wearing mascaras.  I did a bunch of coats on my lashes to make them extra voluminous and long.
  12. NARS Audacious Lipstick in ‘Liv’ – I just bought this lipstick last week, but I love how dark and rich the color is.
  13. Fake blood:  this stuff cost three dollars, and was so easy to apply with my fingers and q-tips.  I got so many compliments on how real it looked, and it comes right off with soap and water.  You can also make your own blood.  A cheap and easy way to vamp yourself!

XX, Gabrielle
