Halloween Inspiration For Going All Out
I literally completed this look (with hair) in under a half hour!!! Halloween makeup has NEVER taken me less than an hour. Oh, and that time included the contacts! Hard to believe I know.... but I've been practicing. See, my last Halloween makeup post included a link for a sale on Halloween contacts and I just COULDN'T pass up the great deal (click HERE for deets on the "great deal"). So when both pairs of contacts arrived, I quickly stored them in solution and have been popping them in once a day. My poor husband! He has NO CLUE what color his wife's eye's will be at any given time when he looks at me. He assures me that it's a bit more than disconcerting when he goes to talk to me while I'm doing dishes and I turn to look at him with BLAZING RED EYES!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now that I just got the blazing red and the white that are seen here, I can't help but change them up from day to day while I'm.... uh.... "practicing". I really do HATE touching my eyeballs, but I will admit that it is getting easier the more I do it. Here's a close up of these white contacts:
Pretty cool effect!!! If you look closely, at certain angles, my blue eyes peek through around the edges of the contact lenses. Honestly, I don't mind it at all.... I actually LOVE how they make my eyes look. I think next year I'll work on getting some Manson lenses where the white is outlined in black. Wow.... that's gotta be a record for me! I'm already planning Halloween 2013 and October, 2012 isn't even here!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA!
Ok gang, that's it for today. But before I go, I do want to suggest a couple of brands worth checking into if you're looking at "doing it up" this Halloween. Here's a couple of links for Ben Nye products and Wolfe FX products. Both are AMAZING product lines to make your Halloween one to be remembered!!! Also, here are a couple of links for some inspiration and how-to's for Halloween looks:
