Halloween FOTD

Taken without flash

Halloween was a little hectic this year...between getting the kids ready and doing makeup for a bunch of other people I didn't really get to put a lot of  thought into my costume or makeup.  I was going to be Edward Scissorhands, but after realizing that I would not have enough time to do any extensive makeup I settled on a goth version of 'Little Red Riding Hood', after being inspired by Michelle Phan's tutorial.  Sorry for the pic quality, it was late and my camera really sucks...hoping I can get a better one soon.

For my costume I wore leather pants, a black flowy chiffon shirt (thrift store find) under a La Senza bustier, and a red circle scarf as a hood.  I also wore my clip on bangs as you can see, haven't cut them yet...but Facebook is telling me I should...lol.  I could also pass as a character from 'Assassins Creed'...which I kinda love.

For makeup I used a lot of golds, pink and black...focusing most of the color on the outside corner and lower lashine.  I didn't pale out my face at all, but the eye makeup and cheek contouring definitely made me look paler, which worked well for the look.  Once again my 88 warm palette saved the day, can't wait to order the other ones:)
