I love Halloween!

You don’t have to be ghoulish to be in the Halloween spirit, just load up on the eyeliner, glitter, false eyelashes, wig, if you have one, or rat your hair, don a black witch hat and a little black dress and be a fabulous witch!

If you wear a wig, PLEASE wear a wig cap underneath, and wear lashes and plenty of makeup. You need balance when donning a wig, your face has to compete with all that big hair!

Have a Happy Halloween!! Put on some makeup!!

My look for Halloween is Purple Medusa:

On Eyes: Santorini single eyeshadow by NARS, applied both wet and dry over Stila powder pot in Purple Pumps, Night Breed single eyeshadow by NARS, Himalayas single eyeshadow by NARS, Longwearing gel eyeliner by Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter eyeliner in Baked, False lashes by Ardell, Carbon Black Voluminous mascara by L’Oreal

Cheeks: Sin and Orgasm blushes by NARS

On Lips: NARS lip lacquer in Chica Boom looks black, but goes on grape. SUPER shiny and long wearing.

Face: Shu Uemura Pro Concealer, and Jane Iredale “Beyond Matte” HD mineral powder in translucent

I just bought 3 new lip glosses at MAC, and I feel like a new woman. Skinnier, Hotter, Younger…..well…at least when I look in the rear view mirror rockin’ out to 80’s music.

If you’ve ever had your makeup done by me, you know I never ever ever use one shade on your lips, it’s always some crazy mix. I love seeing what colors do when you mix em up. Ones you would never think would work, turn out ┬áreally kickin’

Baby Sparks, Funtabulous, and Get Rich Quick...by MAC


Mixing your glosses gets you a wider range of color, and a more interesting and original shade. Get at least 3 shades of gloss, a brown, a purple, and a peachy pink. Mix 2 of them, wear them alone or over a lipstick you’re not too excited about, or mix all 3 together like I did with these 3 gems by MAC.

Got a brown lipstick in a gift with purchase you aren’t too excited about? Add a beige pink shimmery gloss over it (like Baby Sparks, here)

Purple gloss? Too scary? Mix it with a tan or brown, and get a very wearable “face awakening” shade.

Too bright? Tone it down with a neutral shade. You get the drill.

Glossy lips perk up your face, and make your sunglasses look better.

Silly, I know, but try on your sunglasses without gloss and look in the rear view mirror….bleh, right?

Now get all glossed up, put on those Ray Ban Aviators, and you will feel like a rock star even if your kid just threw up goldfish and cotton candy in the back seat, mama.
