I love hello Kitty, she is so cute and girly, so I wanted to embody her for Halloween because I am pretty girly but not PINK sparkly girly. So my costume was a mix of literal reproduction of Kitty and some of my own interpretation. I bought cat ears and pinned a bow to it, but they only had black ears-so I spray painted them white. And the dress I had had a little bow on it and I was carrying Hello Kitty Lollipops with me, so i tucked them in the bow so people who didnt know who I was had a reference point. My makeup was black eyeliner for the whiskers and black anime circles on my eyes, face paint for the nose, urban decay pink sparkle eye shadow, and Jessica Simpson edible body glitter EVERYWHERE else haha.
I am a huge fan of the show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and recently had the opportunity to see the gang perform the episode live. While at the show, I realized that Mac's costume as the nightman has cat eyes, but instead of contacts, his eyelids are painted so that you see them when his eyes are closed. Knowing this, I decided to try the same look at home. I think it came out a bit scary, and will be totally awesome for Halloween.
Here's how I did it:
First I used Benefit's Lemon-Aid as a primer -- mostly because of its yellow base. Next I smothered my eyes in a yellow eyeshadow (I happened to have some in a Cover Girl trio pack). Then I used Loreal's Hip Cream Eyeliner (in black) to fill in the eye area. I used a kind of crappy brush because I was applying it thick. My eyebrows are naturally dark, but I filled them in with some of the eyeliner too. I then took a pencil eyeliner (nicely sharpened) to make the eyeball shapes. I found it easier to use than the brush. I then closed one eye at a time, and used the cream eyeliner and a brush to draw the eyeballs on. For that I just put a dot in the middle and then circled around it. Finally I used a coat of mascara to hide the yellow tinted lashes (they were yellow from all the eyeshadow). As you can tell, I forgot to do one of the eyes.
So what do you think? It's a totally easy and sort of creepy look for halloween. Here's a pic of me with my eyes open, just so you can see what you'd look like if you walked around without your eyes closed.
Last Halloween my pal eclaireasuch dressed up as fake Ashley Todd. Her look was daring, impressively scary and a conversation starter all night — especially compared to her counterparts Blair and Serena. The scariest part? Much to the disgust of her boyfriend and fellow passengers, she put on her makeup and nail polish on the plane from Seattle to SF. I guess it's pretty clear who won this costume contest isn't it?
