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.

Polarbelle Halloween

Products:
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?

Showing off my Tweezerman brows to have dinner with friends!

Using my Tweezerman Pro kit, I fixed my brows all nice and pretty, and unfortunately with my cell phone in lighting which isn't the best, you can't see my awesome sparkly pink eyeshadow, (Maybelline quad).  I used a new blush from the Kardasian Beauty Pumped Up collection, along with a lipgloss.  My face was LA Girl Cosmetics Pro concealer and Gorgeous Cosmetics foundation.  I had gotten inspiration for an easy, casual and comfortable look from my motivational t-shirt from Old Navy.  Easy Peasy.

Tweezerman, brows, Old Navy

Maybelline Street Chic Spring 2014 New Nail Polish

When I first saw this Maybelline Street Chic nail polish display, (notice that it features the Official Nail Color Of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York), I originally passed up the color on the far left.  How many more speckled black and white top coats do I need?  BUT WAIT!!!!  Did you know this color is a pink?

I can see it in the photo, but I didn't see it in the store.  The display was slightly above my head.  At another store, I found these in with the regular Maybelline display and saw the name...can't wait to swatch it!!

New Spring 2014 Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow

These look really interesting. Maybelline has great eyeshadows. I'm very tempted by the quads put out for Spring 2014. I've always loved Maybelline....if you haven't tried their eyeshadows, you just have to!!!

This week, Fred Meyer has a BOGO 1/2 sale on Maybelline.  That's all I needed to know!!!!

New For Spring 2014 - Maybelline Face Studio Blush and Bronzers.

This display features Master Glaze, the stick creme blushes that you see on the left.  And on the right is Master hi-light, which has four blushes and two bronzers. They're so pretty to look at, I just can't wait to swatch them.

I rarely use cream blush so I'm waiting to read reviews but I bought the whole right side out of curiosity.  The colors in the matrixes are so complex and beautiful that I can't wait to see what they look like blended, on the face and in comparison with each other.

New Spring Nail Polishes From L'Oreal and Maybelline

A few bright and shiny spring items caught my eye while shopping in my local Fred Meyer. I was looking for a yellow polish that would be wearable for me, some orange, and I was totally bummed out that I hadn't seen China Glaze 108 degrees anywhere in my town. I turned the corner of the cosmetic aisle and WA LAH! There on the end cap where some new bright and shiny spring offerings from L'Oreal and Maybelline. Check it out!



The item on the left is Maybelline Express Finish in Orange Blazes #654. It's a really nice orange cream for summer. It is limited edition. It is shown in two coats on my pinky finger.



In the first picture, the orange L'Oreal Nail Polish is the color Coral Starfish #422. It is an orange with silver and orange sparkles. It is shown in two coats on my index finger.

The bottle third from the left in the first picture is L'oreal Yellow Seahorse #322. It is a yellow with pink and yellow shimmers. They don't really show when wearing it but give it that little bit of oomph to keep it from looking flat. It is pictured in THREE coats on my middle finger. Here's more of a closeup of the bottle to show the shimmers. It's really pretty.



Lastly, on my ring finger is L'Oreal #222 Pink Shells. It is a vivid deep pink with magenta flecks. It is very similar to China Glaze 108 degrees, perhaps just a bit brighter.


All four polishes applied like a dream, with no streaking. The L'Oreal are a steal at $4.99 and the Maybelline is priced at $7.99. Get them while you can. I don't think they'll last long on the displays.
