Happy Halloween guys and ghouls! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) I love Halloween, like really love it. I decorate the day the calendar says October 1st, we try to watch spooky movies and shows everyday leading up to the 31st, and I basically binge on candy and pumpkins all month long. Some people find it odd that this one is my favorite holiday, but to me it makes perfect sense. I essentially play dress-up in my closet 365 days of the year, so having one (or a few if I’m lucky) days in October to truly take my love for dressing up to a whole new level puts me on cloud nine. Since Stephanie was home from California for a few short days we jumped at the chance to thoroughly get into the festive spirit and I tried my hand at some skeletal make-up (and crazy, wild hair). I don’t normally go for a such a creepy costume, but I figured, why not! I watched this tutorial, and modified it slightly, opting to use a dark brown eyeshadow, a brown eyeliner crayon, and a little white highlighting eyeshadow to create the entire look. I have to say it was much more pleasant to wear than traditional Halloween makeup and it stayed on better too.
