Dia De Los Muertos-Day Of The Dead-Halloween


I love Halloween and this was my look for this year. It worked out great and I was able to use it again when I went to the beautiful Dia de los Muertos festival held in downtown Tulsa every year. The first 2 pictures are close ups of the makeup from Halloween. I went all out even though I don't normally wear much makeup. The headpiece was easy once I had the bright idea of attaching some styrofoam to a cheap headband with a hot glue gun. Then I was able to arrange the flowers by poking them into the styrofoam.

The next pictures were taken after the Dia de los Muertos festival. I didn't have as much time for the makeup but you can see the whole outfit. I'm wearing the nameless gray polish from the Strange Beautiful-Anthropologie collaboration. I love it and wore it for 5 whole days!



Today is the last day for readers from the U.S. & Canada to enter my CSN giveaway! And international readers can still enter my Apothica giveaway!
