DIY HALLOWEEN MUA: VOL.II 2014


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!


It’s only within the first hour of this day, but I wanted to make sure I made it in time before the ‘Bewitching Hour‘ (3 A.M.)

How is everyone doing with their costumes? Have you all been having a blasting planning? Or haven’t done much at all? Well I hope these last few post through out the day (and on instagram) will inspire and help ease the planning!


​​Don’t forget to hashtag: #b2bhalloween14 we love to feature your look and show everyone what YOU came up with! P.S. my older brother carved that face for me. :)

Our FIRST look is a Sorcerer of some kind, and her main element is water, more so the “frozen” kind. This can be an ICE Queen, ICE Witch or a character from a story of great adventure filled with sprites, elves, and other forest creatures…


The SECOND look is a ‘Ventriloquist’. Set more in the 20’s/30’s era. I love this puppet look, and a couple years ago I did this with a more black and white tones, but instead i did more neutral colors, and it gave it a softer touch (believe me the other one looked eeeevvviiiilllll, I gave my niece nightmares!). I then proceeded to show you two more options with the prior look, all adding a little more horror to the look. For some reason I think of my two childhood favorites (tv) ” Are You Afraid of the Dark” and (book series) ” Goosebumps”…

The THIRD look is always needed in any HALLOWEEN MUA series, and that’s a ‘Zombie’ or the new term “CRAWLER”. This decaying face is a always fun and the best part is there aren’t any rules! JUST HAVE FUN! With that said I played with different parts of decay, and gave her some attitude! This crawler is a ‘ZOMBIE HIPSTER’ and she can throw shade for daysssssss…
