Halloween is Only 365 Days Away

It’s never too early to plan for next Halloween.  It’s only 365 days away and the countdown starts now.

So after 5 or 7 or 9 years of buying costumes, you should have a decent wardrobe for next year.  If you have enough, you might be able to take one part from one costume and another part from another costume and even make a ‘new’ costume.

If you don’t have enough bits and pieces to make another costume, this is a great time to ‘buy forward, so to speak.

The Halloween shops have probably closed, packed and vacated your city by now; but if you have a local costume shop, they may or may not be willing to wheel and deal.  No merchant wants to carry over their inventory until next season.

Some merchants have up to a 60% off of selected items for a limited time. You might want to take a look before these deals go away.    Or check our Amazon Halloween costume store (look for the tab below our banner).  If we find any, we will post them today or in a day or so.

And guess what’s coming up soon?  More Thanksgiving stuff on our Amazon Store. Click tab right below the banner on top of this page.

Halloween Makeup Creativity

So I have a beauty guru channel on youtube and I really want to do a Halloween makeup tutorial but the problem is, I have no idea what to do a tutorial on! I mean I know it will be a halloween one, but I don’t know whether to do a witch or a fairy or a vampire or a mermaid or just any halloween costume will work!!!!! Please I need ideas and try to be creative.  I’m not looking for a cat or a banana I want something really cool like an evil queen or enchantrace anything will helpHalloween Makeup

Makeup does not hold the magical power that a Halloween mask can. They have the ability that will transform you into another place and time whether you want to be a superhero or heroine. By starting with a Halloween costume idea you can be anybody or anything that you desire for one night of the year. From the beginning of time humans wore masks either to worship gods or spirits of the earth. Another regular item for this type a mask would be using bird feathers and creating a beak that would create a haunting bird mask.Halloween Makeup

In fact, the popularity of Halloween is evident every year as many restaurants and bars, schools, offices and other organization have costumes parties. A week before Halloween day, a lot of establishment put up classic and modern Halloween decorations, prepare special Halloween menu and offer crazy discounts to entice people to join in the fun. Come to think of it! The number of parties going around during Halloween is the reason why costume maker and retailer make a large profit while professional makeup artist earned a lot on this day as Halloween makeup complete the attire.

Halloween Contests

Halloween Contests

Every Halloween a number of venues host contests that have a womens costume category. If you’ve got a particularly creative or detailed costume, you can actually win quite a bit of money in some of these contests. If you’re serious about competing for the cash, you’re going to want to spend some time shopping for and comparing womens costumes to find just the right ensemble for you.

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for costumes on sale for Halloween or you’re just trying to go to a fancy dress party on the cheap, is here with the cheap costumes that will help you save big and still look fantastic. I wasn’t to sure what I wanted to dress up as. Because of my situation I didn’t have much choice except for a womens costume with a stomach showing. I just found an old black shirt, painted my favorite number on the front and back, bought sweat pants to match, got high white socks and painted a stripe up the sides. wore my black shoes and put my hair in pigtails. My nephew played ball so the bat came in handy!

My sister painted a baseball on my tummy and of course I wanted my soon to be son’s name on it so she put his name and #1. I was so happy with my costume I got lots of compliments! I made the hat out of a laundry basket covered with poster board and a sash. If you look carefully you can see tiny eye holes. I wore a button down cotton sweater on my hips- filled the arms with stuffing and added gloves in place of my hands (my real arms were in the hat!). This womens costume took maybe an hour to make! I bought a towel rack and spray painted that also.

What you need for this is 3 large poster boards, a man’s jacket that will fit around your hips (goodwill or thrift store is a great place to find it) yarn for the hair and either flesh colored fabric or a flesh colored tight fitting shirt. The easiest way to make it is to use the flesh colored shirt and draw a face on it. If you are not pregnant you can use a pillow under the shirt. To make the hat you take two of the poster boards and tape them together to make a cylinder. The third is cut up to make a brim and taped to the hat. Cut two holes for your eyes and disguise them with the center of a flower. Attach hair to either the hat or the shirt with tape or stapler. When you put the hat on your arms are actually folded up in front of your chest helping to hold the hat up. The jacket is buttoned around your hips. Yuck!

12 Steps (With Pictures)

Entering your forties does not necessarily spell the end of the desire to look beautiful and try out new products. In fact, it is at this age, when makeup becomes a necessity and not a mere tool of enhancing your beauty. However, the makeup for older women differs from the one for younger women, in number of ways. Not only the makeup has to be classy and graceful but should also hide the obvious signs of aging. Liquid makeup meant particularly for older women does just the same. Along with rendering a youthful appearance it also camouflages wrinkles and fine lines.stage makeup,Halloween makeup,stage costumes,Valentines Day costumes

I’ve modified my work schedule to allow for four shorter days versus three normal ones — mostly out of necessity. I’m not sure how I feel about it – but we do the things we gotta do, right? And who knows, the shorter days might be good. I have been so busy in the office that it might be a nice change of pace to leave a bit earlier and spread the work out to a fourth day. We’ll see. There’s certainly less traffic when you leave work at an off peak time, which is nice.

A makeup artist is a person who is an expert in giving the desired look to a person who needs to appear on TV, fashion shows, concerts, etc. The type of makeup to be applied on the performer mainly depends upon the specific needs of the person or the show. So, just applying normal makeup on the models and performers is not the only thing that a makeup artist is expected to do. The requirements actually vary from simply hiding blemishes to applying special effects make up that can be anything from showing a young person aged or creating a monster out of a good-looking actor.stage makeup,Halloween makeup,stage costumes,Valentines Day costumes

Halloween Makeup To Creep You Out

In case you don’t live in Southern California, every year it is the goal of Knott’s Scary Farm Haunt to scare the pants off you! Like, literally. And if you have been and survived, then you know how freaky and realistic the monsters are, thanks to the talented makeup artists like Denise. She’s personally been a part of Knott’s Halloween Haunt for 24 years. She started as talent (Fortune Telling ) in her first years, then moved on as Talent Captain for mazes and was a street monster in Ghost Town for 8 years. If anyone knows scary, it’s her!stage makeup,Halloween makeup,stage costumes,Valentines Day costumes

 
 

 

Colored Contacts. This is what I look like with Fairy Princess Eyes, courtesy of EyesBright in the UK. Changing your eye color like you change your lipstick isn’t exactly a thing yet, but it probably will be. The first thing I wondered when I put these contacts in was “do I need more makeup?” but I wanted to compare them to my everyday look, so that’s what you get here. The effect is pretty cool, though it’s more of a night look for full color changes, since the colored part of the lenses have to be opaque (and my pupils aren’t all that dilated during the day).

How much can makeup really transform you? That was the question we posed a few weeks ago when we saw Russian hair and makeup artist Vadim Andreev do some ridiculously amazing things to some ordinary women. In light of the fact that Halloween is now just around the corner, let’s turn our attention to both makeup artists as well as regular folks who have used their “magic” to change into spooky and stunning beings. These talented people didn’t hold back, as they busted out the “big guns” to make us squirm in terror.stage makeup,Halloween makeup,stage costumes,Valentines Day costumes
