Happy December Beauty Lovers!

I’ve been a busy bee and am a little behind on showing you how my Halloween went. This year, I was inspired by Rick Baker’s version of the bride of Frankenstein. I’ve been the B.O.F. before, so I whipped out my handy-dandy wig and freshened up this dead look for 2013.

Here’s an image of Rick Baker’s monsterholiday2013_macrickbaker001

I kept it pretty much the same but added a vibrant green and glitter to the eyes. I also gave my top lip a “widow’s peak.” What do you think?

I covered the tail ends of my eyebrows by running a glue stick back and forth. I repeated the glue stick layers about three times, then scooped out full coverage concealer (MAC’s Studio Finish works great) and spackled it on with a spatula to smooth over the hairs. I topped them off with translucent powder to set the makeup (Makeup For Ever HD Powder works well.)

I applied a foundation that was a few shades lighter than me all the way down to my chest, set it with a translucent powder, then highlighted areas with white eyeshadow (MAC White Pigment is a good one.) I used an ashy grey-brown blush to contour the hollows of my collarbone, cheek bones and nose (MAC Taupe Blush is the bomb.)

Stitches and screws were created with burgundy and white eye pencils (MAC Foxy Lady and NYX Jumbo liner in Milk) and Wet N Wild Waterproof liquid liner.

Here’s a shot of me in the car, so you can see how tall my B.O.F. wig is! I almost had to open the sunroof, ha ha.
