Halloween EOTD

October being my favorite month of all year, its no wonder I have been such a very bad blogger.


 Anyways, I am here now to show off my Halloween eyeshadow of the day look. It is SO colorful and dramatic and daring, I created this look with some of my favorite Sugarpill products of all time.
SO...enjoy some pics!

 These are the Sugarpill Products I used:
  • Midori (pressed grassy green)
  • Tako (pressed super white)
  • Poison Plum (pressed deep & bright purple)
  • Bulletproof (pressed deep matte black)
  • Dollipop (pressed super hot pink)
  • Absinthe (loose acid-ee lime green)
  • Afterrparty(pressed electric shimmery blue is also pictured but was not used in this look)
The Sugarpill Palette shown in this picture was the discontinued "Cold Heart Palette." I am SO glad I got one before they were discontinued. I ordered the burning heart and cold heart so I could double up on poison plum. I ordered midori and dollipop singles instead of the sweetheart palette.

In the picture above I show everything that I used to:
prep my lids, define my bows, create the precise line
& line my eye-lid/waterline/tight-line
  • Scotch Tape
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Original (I re-potted the product after the original "genie-esque bottle it came in snapped in half)
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
  • MAC Impeccable Brow Pencil in Blonde
  • MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
  • NYX Fabulous Lashes in Nostalgia #128
  • Maybelline Falsies Volum' Express Mascara in Black Drama

 In this picture I will show you The Body Needs products I used:

These are the products I used on my Face:

  • Revlon ColorStay in 240 Medium Beige
  • Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer
  • L`Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Blush in  N 3-4 Innocent Flush
  • MAC Studio Fix Powder in NW20

Here is a picture of my eye close up. I placed the tape at the end of my eye, lined up with the natural line on my bottom lash-line. I then applied my UDESPP on my lid, followed by a generous application of the NYX pencil in milk. I then patted the Midori on just my lid. Over that I smoothed on a layer of the Absinthe. Then from the outer corner I started to blend in the Poison Plum across my crease, followed by a light application of dollipop to blend it out to my brow. I then went in with the Bulletproof and applied that to the very corner down slightly into the midori/absinthe. I then put a tiny bit of the nyx milk under my brow/ inner corner of my eye to apply Tako under my brow and Shimmers Green in my inner corner. I applied the Orchid In Violet the blend the poison plum into the tako and blended the inner corner up just a bit. The last steps were to fill in my brows, line my eyes on my lid with the MAC Blacktrack, and line my waterline/tigh-line the top lash line with the UD pencil in zero. Last but not least, I added the lashes and blended my natural lashes in with the falsies mascara.

After I finished my eyeshadow, I removed the tape and proceed with my usual face make up regimen. I start with the Revlon smoothing primer, and apply a very thin and light layer. I then follow with my foundation (revlon colorstay), stipple it on with my foundation stippling brush. After that I brush on a light layer of the blush in passionate kisses and blend some of the true match blush over for a more flushed/shimmer look. Lastly, I set the remaining spots of my foundation with the MAC studio-fix powder.

As you can see in the next two pictures, I put my vampire fangs in that were used for my "Dr. Acula" costume. None of my halloween party pictures showed them off very well, so I decided to show them off here!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! If you have any comments, questions or suggestions

My Dark Passenger

I'm not sure how many of you readers are Dexter fans, but for the few that might be, YOUR AWESOME!! I only say that because if your a Dexter fan, you totally understood the title of my post. Dexter is a show on Showtime , its about a Blood Spatter Analyst/ Serial Killer named Dexter Morgan. While after seeing a look that inspired me, I decided to take it my own, horrific and twisted route. I named this look after the blood lust Dexter has for being a Vigilante, which he refers to as his "Dark Passenger". So, now that we are all on the same page, check it out:

Framing Hammer
Fake Blood

Nail Polishes used
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in "Without a Stitch"
Spatter(In this order):
Wet n' Wild in Nail Color "Black Creme"
Wet n' Wild Megalast Nail color in "Haze of Love"
Sinful Colors in "Ruby Ruby"
Top Coat:
PRO-FX Complete 3 Top Coat, Base Coat, Nail Strengthener

In order to create the "spatter" effect, I used a coffee straw, cut into three pieces for the three colors. 

After Applying the base, I used the coffee straws by dipping them into the polish, then blowing them on my nails, one color/nail at a time. For the base and the top coat, I wanted to use something more study as far as quality to retain the look as long as possible (or until I felt like taking it off), but for the spatter colors, I used inexpensive brands because they would be covered with top coat anyways. It took about 20 mins and made a giant mess (both on my hands and on the paper towels I laid down).


Really, I almost threw in the towel half way through because I wasn't up for cleaning up the big mess I was making. This was my first attempt with making a spatter look, and having done it once now, there are a few things I will be doing different next time to make it less messy (like tapping my fingers off and getting smaller straws). I hope you enjoyed this scary look that would be ideal for a gorey halloween look. Make sure to follow my blog! 
Stay doll. Lovelies!
