While I was a little pressed for time and not entirely prepared in the makeup department, I made do with what I had and I was grateful I recently ordered a makeup that is far to fair for my current skin tone because I was able to use it to make me all the more pale for such an occasion.
|Not too shabby for being rushed and ill-prepared.|
So, I swiped on two coats of über light foundation and topping it off heavily with a white finishing powder. I used black eyeshadow around my eyes and a teal gel eyeliner for the accents around it. I didn't have any black gel liner, so I used a liquid Mary Kay liner that has been taking up space in my makeup case and figured this would be the prime time to use it for details. I also made sure to use the ChapStick Hydration that I received in my October Birchbox since I knew I'd need it before applying foundation to my lips. If I had had more time before the sun went down, I would have added a more intricate design to my forehead, but I could hear the children running down the street and I still needed to put my dress on. So, I threw it on, pulled up my hair with a clip and called it good, but not before snapping a few photos of the final product.
Ultimately, I had a blast. It was the most fun I've had passing out candy ever. The children seemed to appreciate it too since I got more than a few compliments on both my makeup and the full ensemble. One little girl even recognized that it was Day of the Dead inspired. I did feel sorta bad for the small children I scared. Especially, the adorable Batman. He let out a little "Ahh!" when he looked up. It was ridiculously adorable though.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween and if you do celebrate El Día de los Muertos, I hope you made some sugar skulls and are remembering your loved ones who have passed.
