THREE DAYS until Halloween!! I am super excited. I don’t know what it is about holidays, but I get so giddy and kid-in-a-candy-store pumped at the thought of them. I just love getting in the spirit, decorating, cooking for the theme, and of course, hosting a party to celebrate. Holidays were always a big deal in my family growing up, and Halloween was no different. My dad would decorate the yard top to bottom with spooky decor, and my mom would always make us one-of-a-kind costumes. I blame them for my holiday-to-the-max attitude (and am perfectly okay with it).
Needless to say, store-bought costumes aren’t really my thing. Thanks to my mom, I love putting together my own costume and Halloween looks with different articles of clothing, accessories, and of course, makeup. I really wanted to go all out and create a kick-ass costume and makeup tutorial for you this year, but time has gone by way too fast and now I’m out of it (so I’m saving what’s left for my own costume for this weekend. It should be pretty bomb.).
I was, however, able to whip up this quick last-minute costume/makeup look for anyone struggling with an idea or who needs inspiration. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do when I started so I kind of just went with the flow, which is why I’m all over the place in the tutorial, but hopefully it gets the point across well enough.
So, if you’re interested in learning how to recreate this frosty blue snow queen/ice princess look, check out my video tutorial! (And don’t judge me for the inner corner of my eyelashes coming off on my right eye. I guess I forgot to glue them all the way.) P.s. I can’t take myself seriously during the intro … I crack up every single time.
My goal was to use products that you most likely already have in your makeup collection, or items you could purchase for a low price at the drugstore. Everything I used is mentioned in the video’s description box.
Anywho .. I hope this helps at least one person out or give someone inspiration for a last-minute Halloween costume idea. It’s not the best tutorial in the world and I know it’s quick, but hey, it’s my first one!
