You may have noticed we’re doing things a little different here on the blog and that’s because it’s Halloween!!! I’m sure you’ll be celebrating this weekend as well! What are your plans? What are you dressing up as? I’d love to know or even see your costumes!!
Halloween is my favorite holiday and the last few years I’ve started making my costumes. I’ve been a robot, where I painted my entire body silver; another year I went as a mermaid and glued hundreds of little shells onto a bra, took forever but totally worth it! I love costumes and dressing up, but I think more than that I love transforming into someone or something else. That’s where the wannabe makeup artist in me comes out! LOL So this year I wanted to transform into a Disney character, but not your typical princess I wanted to be a villian and I thought who better than Cruella de Vil. If she weren’t skinning puppies for their fur she could be a style icon! LOL
Instead of rummaging through my closet to find a faux fur coat (none of mine are as long as hers) I decided to rent one from Buffalo Breath Costumes and then went all out on my makeup and really any excuse to wear a wig, I’m all in! So after learning how to cover my eyebrows for the first time with a glue stick I was able to draw on these super thin black arched brows, include her signature green shadow and red lips!
I hope you enjoyed my take on this Crulla de Vil look, she was a lot of fun to create and make sure and follow me on Snap and Instastories to watch her come to life tonight!!
Hope you have a fun, safe, and fabulous Halloween weekend!
