Halloween Week Makeup Look Extragavanza

In the week leading up to and including Halloween, I was challenged to create some unique makeup looks.  My initial inspiration came from a package I received via Buxom Cosmetics.  I shared all the looks on Instagram but I thought I'd bring to you all the fun that I had.  I haven't done anything Halloween-ish beside handing out candy since I was 14.  This all really was fun.

My first look was a 2017 take on 80's Madonna in the Like A Virgin video.  I may have sang and danced my way through Snapchat and IG stories that night, rumor has it...oh wait, that's an Adele song!


I couldn't find a picture that wasn't all fuzzy from the video but below is from the same time frame:

Day 2,  I was challenged by Buxom Cosmetics to wing a little superhero action.  Afterwards, I got on Snapchat and deflected invisible bullets with a little "pew, pew, pew!"

The third look was something I wanted to do with my dog.  She's a rap star, you know, right?  She does benefit concerts and stuff....I had a full scenario for her return to the stage after a leg injury but she just wasn't having it.   In my imagination, we were dressed as her former sister in a Mommy and Me contest.



She wouldn't play, so I filmed my October Ipsy and Sephora Play unboxings.  You can see that here:

I thought it would be so funny to dress up like another youtuber.  I picked Desi Perkins.  Here is my inspirational picture from Desi's Instagram:


And here I am being an older Desi.  I'm probably the only one who thought that was funny.

If you know me, you know I am glued to baseball playoffs and the World Series every year, and even more so when my team is playing!  Clayton Kershaw, the Dodger Ace, was due to pitch on Game 5 and I was ready!!!  Here I am as Kershaw's Killer Slider.

White Grease Paint . @makeuprevolution Ghost Sculpt powder
@nyxcosmetics Milk Jumbo eye pencil
@collab lash primer from @sallybeauty . @katvondbeauty Hemingway Ink liner . @nyxcosmetics Vivid Liquid liner in the red color...which exploded but it worked out ok. . Let's go Dodgers!!!

And last but not least, I dressed up as a Polarbelle for Halloween.  When I meet a new person and they learn my online name, they always ask what a Polarbelle is.  I'm from Alaska, so I'm not a Southern Belle, right?  I am an Arctic Princess Warrier, a Polarbelle.  My fantasy interpretation of that is below.   I did film a video so expect to see the Polarbelle in action soon, although it all made my teeth look really yellow, so maybe that's too spooky of a video?


I had a lot of fun just throwing caution to the wind and playing pretend all week for the first time in 100 years.  Can you believe today is November already?!?  I won't dress as a turkey because I wear that costume all year, haha.  Did you do anything fun or get any cool candy this season?

4 KB Shimmer Fall 2015 Collection Nail Polishes, Swatches and Review



Halloween, glitter, crelly, jelly, swatches, review

Today I have four nail polishes from the new Fall 2015 Collection by KB Shimmer that launched this week to celebrate fall and Halloween.  The full collection is 12 polishes and I'm pleased to show you 1/3 of it today.

In the picture above, the four polishes are:
Talk Qwerty To Me, a smooth shimmering teal nail polish, that contains teal and gold microshimmers.  I'd like to emphasize that this is a shimmer that applies smooooooothly.

Be Scareful, an white crelly polish that contains orange and black shapes in circles, hexes, stars and triangles.  And it glows in the dark!!

Dark & Twisty, a black jelly with multiple colors of fine metallic glitters that glow when the light hits them like 1000 Christmas lights.

Teal It To My Heart, a teal cream one coat wonder.

I love them all.  The first manicure I did was with Be Scareful and Dark & Twisty

crelly, jelly, review

I have just a couple of comments about each polish.  I LOVE the whitish crellys done by KB Shimmer with the different glitters, so I was thrilled to get this one.  The glitters went on easily without a lot of fishing and one thing that I found really fun was the designs that the glitters combine to make.  One triangle combined with a dot to look like a tree...a good reminder Christmas will be here before we know it!!  And the orange stars...win!!  Look about in the middle of the bottle below.


And imagine the surprise I got when I went to bed the first night and saw my nails glowing!!

Halloween, jelly, crelly, glitter, swatches

I wore Be Scareful with Dark & Twisty.  Any fraction of light that hits this polish results in an explosion of flashing color.  It should come with a 'don't wear while driving" disclaimer because you get totally drawn into the beautiful bright flecks.


It applies like a dream and I was honestly so surprised at how much life is in this.  It's my favorite of the four I have.

You can see that it even sparkles brightly on a cloudy day as below.  Three coats.


The second manicure I did had a teal theme.  I used Teal It To My Heart and Talk Qwerty To Me for a little nail art.  Teal It To My Heart is a one-coater.  Both polishes are really smooth to apply and wear very well.

Halloween, swatches, talk Qwerty to Me, Teal It To My Heart

My camera had the most trouble capturing Talk Qwerty To Me adequately.  Trust me, it's a really pretty teal shimmer.

Fall 2015

Both colors are such pretty teals!!  Below in the sun:

There are eight more pretty polishes in the Fall 2015 KB Shimmer collection.  The polishes are a steal with prices ranging from $7.50 to $8.75 for a large 15 ml bottle.  While you're there, be sure to pick up the Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.  It's only $5.50 and is a total winner in the quick dry department.

KB Shimmer also sells a variety of tools, hand and body care, as well as nail art products.  Their products are fun and affordable.

What colors are you rocking for fall?  Have you checked out the KB Shimmer Fall 2015 Collection?
