Wednesday Addams: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

Ok folks...we have the perfect last minute easy-peasy costume for you!

Wednesday requires 2 essential things: a white collar and double braids. Everything else is a little flexible!

I’d like to think that black lipstick was a staple in her routine as she got older. We didn’t have the exact dress or even sweater...so what we did was put the white collar shirt under a black thermal long sleeve shirt!

Classic three strand braided pigtails of course. Loads of lashes and strong brows for a more glam look. Paired her top with a skirt and there you go!

Be sure to wear your serious face like Alyssa did. Special thanks to Indulge Beauty Studio for these awesome pics!  

Vampy Vampire

Jessica Palmer

The ultimate Halloween icon: the vampire! So many possible directions you could take this one...but I think my favorite is to go full blown dramatic on the makeup then add the fangs and blood!

So here’s a glance at each step I took to get my undead glam on...

Clean bare face of course! I used Painterly paint pot by MAC as my eye base and worked from the purple and black shadows in the Tarteist Pro palette!

Start with a wash of color over your lid, the brightest purples should go in your crease, smoke out the edges with the black and highlight your brow bone!

The far right row in the palette is all shimmery shades—use your finger to color pack the shimmery purple onto the center of your lid for an extra pop! I always use a makeup wipe to clean up after and create a sharp line to guide my wings! Dior has an awesome liquid liner, the felt tip makes it goof proof!  Lashes are a must, try using the lash trios by Ardell! They’re like training wheels for lashes— so much easier to put on!

Now that you’ve cleaned up the fallout from the smokey eye, even your skin tone with your favorite foundation! I used Face Atelier ultra foundation and concealed and highlighted with the NARS creamy concealer.  This bronzing and highlight palette was limited edition, but you can snag the shades individually from NARS as well. A nice sharp contour and highlight definitely adds that necessary severity to this look.

Loving this look so far! Smoke out under your lashes and add liner in your inner rim for extra drama.

Blush by Cargo in Ibiza, strong brows with my new favorite brow pencil from NYX...it’s called Precision Brow Pencil and the shade taupe works for just about everyone! NYX lip in Transylvania—how apropos! I set it with black eyeshadow for extra depth and hold.

There it is! Love! Of course I added fangs. I used the petite set from Scarecrow Vampire. The set comes with a kit to make custom molds but I opted to go the lazy route and use poligrip since I only was wearing them for a couple hours.

Bonus step: Add a drip of fx blood in the corner of your mouth!

Any outfit will do but I think all black is the way to go...leather, chockers, boots...the more badass the better!

I’m not gonna lie, I kinda want to wear this look year round...fangs included!

There you have it! You’re ready for your date with Dracula!  

Día de Muertos: A Celebration of Life

Jessica Palmer

Last year we did a Día de Muertos photoshoot in conjunction with the headpieces from Idolatry and loved it so much we decided to do it again this year!

How gorgeous are our 3 Mexican models?!

 We leveled up this year by having P&P Artist Gina Scheiber bring her amazing fx skills! We were in awe the whole time at the detail and vision she brought to the shoot.

The Day of the Dead is such a special Mesoamerican celebration with roots in both indigenous traditions and Catholicism.

The imagery of skeletons and skulls walks hand in hand with this holiday.

The painting of a calavera on the face or on sugar is a lovely way to acknowledge mortality, remember your ancestors, and celebrate life.

Our friend Valerie Tejeda at Heart Your Heritage made this awesome video about it—take a peek and learn some more about the holiday!

Witch: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

Alongside the black cat, the witch is one of the easiest and best go-to’s for Halloween! It really only requires two things: black clothing and the classic pointy hat! Everything else is dependent on your imagination! 

 

IMG_6703.JPG

 

And thanks to the Target dollar section, dressing up like a witch has never been easier! We snagged our hat for $3 and paired it with a favorite black maxi dress. Bonus points if you add striped tights!

Another reason why I love this costume is because the makeup can be whatever you want! A smokey eye seemed like the obvious choice.

Build your smokey eye with black and then color pack some green shadow to the center of your lid for a witchy pop of color! I love keeping a colorful palette full of funky shades on hand for occasions like these. The morphe palette I used is sadly discontinued but they have lots of other colorful options and are super affordable!

There you go! Super easy and super glam! Special thanks to Indulge Beauty Studio for taking these rad pics of the lovely Emma! 

Dia de Muertos: A Modern Spin on a Classic Calavera

Jessica Palmer

Just a quick bit of inspo for all of my fellow Latinxs out there! This week in anticipation of Dia de Muertos, I envisioned a calavera with varying tones of brown and black and here’s how it turned out...

IMG_6390.JPG

 

I of course had to bust out my Gold Metallic Powder and Mixing Liquid from Mehron...that has seriously been my October staple product!  

  

IMG_6391.JPG

Tony Moly Black gel eyeliner was perfect for the black outlines and nose. And my favorite brown and black shadows provided the shading! Simple but striking...it was fun to step away from the traditional white base and I love how it turned out!  

 

 

IMG_6393.JPG

 

Needles to say, it made grocery shopping much more eventful!  And I think I have some great ideas for our upcoming Dia inspired photoshoot! Can’t wait to see how our trio of Mexican models turn out...so stay tuned for more calavera inspo soon!
