    Wow everyone who posted their faces full on halloween guys all look amazing, nice job.

    Damn I wish my camera worked so I could finally post some pics of make up I did on peeps for halloween. I only just now realized that when I saw these pics for the purple smokey eyes. I did one of my friend’s eyes to make her a cat. I used post haste and smoked it out with carbon, used soemthing pretty neutral in the crease but I forget what exactly and put motif on her as a highlighter then she had me apply these glittery fake eyelashes..which I must say I think I did pretty darn well consdiering I have never put eyelashes on myself or anyone else before.

    On my other friend I used hepcat on the lid and this purple glittery color called tango nights (sephora brand)in the crease and used motif as a highlighter again. I used this fine shimmery eyeshadow dust..(I guess it is alot like using MAC pigment powder) in this irridescent blackish color and made into a liquid and lined her eyes with it. Does anyone else feel like they do make up on other people way better than they can do it on themselves??

    Christine- did you dress up at all? what did you go as?

  4. I LOVE the lip! Rock that purple, girl!!
