My Halloween weekend was pretty quiet...MG travels down to Florida for a music festival around this time, so I played with my makeup and created a sort of pinup look, complete with winged liner, false lashes, and vampy lips...
I used half lashes just to see how I could handle wearing them, and went without the mascara since I was just hanging out at home. The lashes were surprisingly comfortable! I credit that to the lash glue I used - the Revlon lash glue comes with a brush, so it's really easy to coat the band, and you don't have to wait for the glue to get tacky before applying them.
For my lips I dabbed the tiniest bit of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Vintage - a deep merlot burgundy - with a bit of NARS gloss in Greek Holiday for shine. I applied the lip tar with a brush after outlining my lips with a pencil, and blended Greek Holiday on top. It's been months since I've tried wearing a lip tar, and they don't mess around with staying power! My lips were stained a lovely berry shade after eating dinner, and it took a little work with some makeup remover to get all of it off before taking off the rest of my makeup.
In an unrelated note, please stop by the DC Bijou blog for a giveaway - I'm adding fabric pouches to my online shop, and I'm going to be giving away 2 pouches along with sheetmasks, makeup, and earrings/hair accessories!
