Happy Halloween Everyone!
Fall is my favorite time of the year. Fall comes with cooler weather, football, booties, scarves, and pumpkin spice everything. (yes, I'm a stereotypical white girl who loves pumpkin spice everything. lol)
Another item to add to the 'fall list' is Halloween. Halloween is such a fun Holiday and tradition. I love coming up with costume ideas. For the past couple of years my friends' host a party at their house for Halloween and it's always a fun time. It's fun seeing what costumes people come up with.
This year I had no idea what to be for Halloween. I searched for days on Pinterest trying to find cool makeup looks to recreate. It was literally Friday night (the day before the costume party) at 8pm when I decided to be an "Ice Queen."
Here is the final look:
I made the 'ice crown' out of hot glue. I used a ceramic dinner plate to draw or outline a circle base to create a halo type crown. I then drew long icicle shapes the width of the plate with the hot glue. Once the icicles were dry on the plate, I popped them off and glued them standing straight up on to the halo crown. This process actually took longer than I had planned.
My fingers were starting to hurt from pulling the trigger on my hot glue gun! It made me think of the Grandma in the movie "Happy Gilmore." haha. ("My fingers hurt.")
**If you guys want me to put together a 'how to video' for the ice crown please comment below on this blog post!**
Now for the makeup details!
For the Face:
Luckily I had some white foundation color in my airbrush makeup kit. Instead of airbrushing the white color on my face, I used a makeup sponge to buff it all over my face. It came out looking very flawless.
Next I took an eyeshadow from Urban Decay called 'undone' to contour. It's found in the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics palette. (Any smokey grey color will work for this.)
I took that same eyeshadow by Urban Decay (undone) and applied that to my crease with a fluffy blending brush. (E25 from sigma) I applied Loreal's Infallible 24hr eyeshadow in the shade 'liquid diamond' to the tops of my eye lids.
I applied some mascara then put on some false lashes by Ardell. These lashes were the number 105 glamour lashes. Once I had them on I painted them with the NYX white liquid liner.
For the lips I used the NYX Cosmetics liquid suede cream lipstick in the shade 'Brooklyn Thorn.'
for the dripping icicle look, i just used white liquid eyeliner. This is the same NYX liquid liner I mentioned above in the brows section.
I used liquid black liner to draw on my bottom lash line. I wanted it to look like there was black water/ice dripping out of my eyes. I also made some small hot glue icicles that I applied on my cheeks with the Ardell duo black eyelash glue.
The final touch was dusting my face with champagne pop highlighter.
For the final details on the costume:
I wore an old bridesmaid dress and threw on a white fur shawl. The shawl was the perfect touch to make this costume look like an ice queen. The shawl was from Cabi Clothing. (fall 2015 collection)
I also added a statement necklace from Mirinacollections. You can receive 20% off when you use the discount code: 'mirinagirls.'
The last item for this costume is the WIG! I purchased this gray/silver wig from Spirit Halloween. I thought it gave a great icy touch to this look.
Everyone's costumes looked great! Pictured below are my two childhood friends Kelly and Jesse. Kelly and her husband came to the party as Forrest Gump and Jenny. Jesse and her husband played Hillary Clinton and Trump.
We had a great time and I had so much fun creating this look!
