A Blog for the Makeup Insane.

Monday, November 1, 2010


I had no idea what to be this Halloween. Actually, I did but then the wig didn't fit my fat head and I was left trying to figure things out. I wanted to play with makeup, but I knew my time would be limited as I was helping out a friend with a drag look for that evening and wanted to give him as much time as I could.

The look on the left is my before photo.

Just joking -- obviously. This look is what I ended up with. I'm not totally in love with it because it could have been better if I'd planned it. But, I'm okay with it for a home party kind of look. I could have done a better job on the stitching by the mouth, and if I'd thought ahead of time, could have used latex or other special effects to make it look more like scarring.

No one noticed I drew those arched brows on either, which makes me wonder if perhaps my natural ones aren't too pointy!

The lens came from a place in Britain and it was the first time I'd ever worn one. It was surprisingly easy, and was perhaps the best part of the costume as it really unsettled some of my friends. Anyway, it was a lot of fun!
