Makeup For Glam Halloween Looks!

Halloween isn’t only a time for candy (I have to remind myself), it’s for dressing up and being someone or something else for a night!  I don’t really dress up, but I do like to play with my makeup and wear fun colors I wouldn’t normally wear!

Below are some great products for different looks.  Go mermaid with blues and greens, unicorns with shimmery pastels or just change it up and wear black lipstick and eyeliner (my plan)!

I received a sample of the costume for my honest opinion, and it’s really cute!  The wig is a little crazy, so I would use my own hair, it’s a lot like Flo’s.   But the headband, apron and pins are very fun!  Great costume idea!

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
