Halloween 2008.

I hope everyone had a great Halloween this year!!! As for myself, I give it a 7 out of 10. I had a blast dressing up as Cruella De Vil, but unfortunately, my work wasn't so enthusiastic this year when it came to dressing up. What a bunch of party poopers.

And since I work with a bunch of party poopers this year, I don't have too many pictures of me in my full costume! But here's what I do have:

Rawr! This was taken in the morning when everything was nice and fresh. And I realized as soon as I took this that something was missing. I forgot to fill in my brows! Brows make such a big difference.

Here's me at work and in my full costume. The only good thing about not everyone dressing up in my was more chance for me to win a prize in the contest ;) In fact, I ended up winning twice!!! One for my costume and one for the ghoulish desert I brought in (I foolishly forgot to take a picture of it- it came out really neat. I made a chocoalte cake with chocolate frosting, and crumbled oreo cookies to make it look like dirt. Then I took some "gummy body parts" and stuck them in the cake, then took red decorator gel for "blood"). I won two gift cards- $50 total! It's not my fault that no one else wanted to join in the fun!

Here's a closeup of my eyes. I know I probably have no business posting this because it's rather...eugh. I kind of forgot to put a base on in the morning. But, this was taken at the end of the day. Oops!

My favorite thing were my lashes- again this was taken at the end of the day and they were starting to lift. Plus I am quite a novice when it comes to false lashes. You have no idea how hard I practiced weeks before!

And, since it's appropriate, here's what I used:

  • L'Oreal Eye Smoker Pencils in Noir (black) and Shimmer (white)
  • Wet n Wild eyeshadows in Gypsy (black, also used to fill in brows) and Wicked (white)
  • MAC Knight Devine
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Zero
  • Fright Night False Lashes in "Bat Girl"

  • NARS Amour

  • NYX Snow White
If you have any questions...or would like a more in-depth look at how I did this (believe me it looked MUCH better in the morning, as opposed to the end of the night in the pictures), just let me know.

The lashes are gorgeous, and on the contrary, I think you did a terrific job with the eye!
