Hello, lovelies! Halloween fell on a Tuesday, so it was a quiet affair this year. I went out with friends for drinks and Chinese food, so I decided to dress up instead of wearing a costume. Money’s tight and I didn’t want to shell out money for a costume this year. But it was all good! A big party is not necessary to celebrate my favorite holiday.
This is my first Get Ready With Me (GRWM) video. It’s very quick, so it’s not a tutorial. You’ll see me apply my makeup in under 2 minutes (ha!) and then you’ll see what I wore for Halloween.
Here is the list of makeup that I used. As usual for Halloween, my makeup was dark and heavy. I also wore green contact lenses which are subtle, but they give me just a slight change in eye color. I tend to favor subtlety instead of the spooky, bright contacts – not that there’s anything wrong with that. (*wink*)
