  1. Apply an eyeshadow primer.  Then, with a damp brush, pack on a dark blue shimmer eyeshadow to the inner half and outer half of the lid. Leave a blank space in the center.
  2. Using a damp brush again, place a bright shimmery blue in the center and lightly blend.
  3. Sweep a dark matte purple in the crease and bring it out towards the hairline.
  4. Apply a light matte eyeshadow under the brow.
  5. Lightly blend a bright pink shadow where the purple and light matte shadow meet.
  6. Add the blue eyeshadows to your lower lash line in the same order and add purple right underneath that. Then, line your waterline with black eyeliner and apply mascara.
I drew the beginning of my eyebrows into a point for more of a dark/mysterious look.

Face and Lips:

- I applied my everyday face as I normally would.
- For my lips, I used MAC Rebel lipstick and lightly darkened the corners of my lips with a black eyeliner for an ombre look.

I went on a hunt a little while ago for some new pants because I'm on a mission to put on some weight. I've already gained a little bit and most of my pants no longer fit me which was the perfect excuse to go shopping. They needed to be inexpensive yet cute and have a good amount of stretch since I don't want to keep buying pants that I won't fit into at some point.
I picked out these textured faux leather pants to try on thinking "Ehh, why not?". There were doubts in my mind but when I put them on I knew they were coming home with me. They stretch like a legging but are a little thicker and I believe were somewhere between $10-$15. I threw on a button down with the "half tuck" and left it open just enough to let my sheer bralette peek through for the perfect amount of sexiness.

As much as I hate trying on clothes, there are many times where some items look better on the body than on the rack and vice versa. If something sparks an interest, try it on!

Halloween Makeup: Morticia Addams

They're creepy and they're kooky, 
Mysterious and spooky, 
They're all together ooky,
The Addams Family.

The one time of the year where you can be whatever/whoever you want to be is almost here.

The first look of the month is Morticia Addams because.. well.. who wouldn't want to be her?! Dark and glamorous with a husband who loves her more than anything. Oh, Gomez.
Recreating this look made me wonder why I've never had a goth phase in my life. Although, I know I wouldn't have worn it as well as Morticia.

All you really need to do for the eyes is create a winged out smokey eye but with less blending.
  1. Apply a silver eyeshadow to the lid. The inner half should extend above your crease.
  2. Using a dark matte gray or black shadow, place this right above the silver. The inner half should reach the brow then swoop down and into a wing. You want to blend this lightly so that there are no harsh lines but still have a noticeable separation. 
  3. Apply a matte white under the brow.
  4. Then line your eyes and apply mascara.
Morticias has black, curved eyebrows so for this I filled in my brows with a matte black eyeshadow and tried to hide my arch as much as I could.

The white face paint that can be found everywhere around this time is too drastic for Morticia. Although she has super pale skin, it's not ghost white. 
I applied lots of white powder to my face, neck, and hands so that my skin color can still peek through(this took longer than I would have liked and started to look caked on). Instead, I suggest using a lighter foundation and then lightly go over it with a white powder.
For contouring, use a  dark matte gray eyeshadow or a matte black eyeshadow with a very light hand. Sweep this right under your cheekbones. Once you're about an inch away from the corners of your lips, lightly drag it down and fade it out. Also remember to contour the sides of your nose and connect it to the eyeshadow so that the look flows well.

Lips, Hair, and Nails:

Morticia's red lips and long red nails are part of her seductive look. I used MAC Russian Red on my lips and a darker shade of red on my nails. If you have short nails, I suggest popping on some long red press on's for the night to get the full effect.
Those with long dark hair are in luck. All you have to do is part it in the center. But for those who need a wig, just make sure that it's black and has a center part.

Hope you enjoyed the look!
I have a few more in mind but if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.
