Weekend in Photos: It’s Halloween

I’m sure you are aware that the weekend that just passed coincided with Halloween. Well it’s meant to be the 31st October but the parties and the Halloween-y feel had been going on maybe for about a week already starting with the zombie walk about a week ago!

So with the Halloween in the air, I thought I would do something… different. Have I ever really dressed up for Halloween? My first ever Halloween dress-up was last year and this year I really did not get to buy a new costume or outfit but I did have an idea… and while browsing through a random shop another idea popped into my head. 1 idea + 1 idea = good idea ;p

Before I continue on the idea… I’m just going to quickly mention how I went to MAC to do my 2nd Back 2 MAC #excited !! I’m glad Morange is in the range Amplified… Amplified is my favourite texture from MAC.

Back to Halloween … I found these at the shop and was unsure about the black wings because my initial idea never involved it. However now I’m kicking myself for not getting that black wings. It was sold out by the next day when I wanted to get it!

My idea involved “masquerade”, “lace”, “drawn on mask”, “Victorian”, “Avant garde”, you get the idea?

And with the spirit of Halloween and giving myself a challenge… so on Friday night I thought… why not play around with my makeup (oh, yes, you know how we roll… we just play with our makeup) and came up with…

Although when Saturday night hit… and it was time for me to get ready for the Halloween party that night I did not feel like having a full mask like I had the night before (as seen in previous photos)… but I still stuck to my initial idea of prints and artsyfied face. An angel might as well be in disguise… and went with…

What I used (I had a serious moment of just playing around with this and that and this and that!) – I was just enjoying it so much… hahaha.

If you’re wondering, no that’s not my bra strap… it’s the wings strap (remember I missed out on the black wings? I had to get the white wings instead). My idea? Fallen angel… or Dark angel
