Scarecrow Halloween DIY Costume

Jessica Palmer

Only a few more days to go until Halloween! Still don’t have an idea? Here’s one that you’re sure to have the stuff for!

 For the outfit grab jeans or overalls, a white tee, a flannel, and a straw sun hat!

 For the makeup, start with your face as done as you like it. For Gracie, we opted for foundation and powder and some big fluffy doll-like lashes! Then go in with hot pink blush and make a distinct circle shape with it on each cheek! We used Tarte blush in Rad.

Make a tear drop shape with the blush on your nose too and top off the look with a bright pink lip! Try NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream or Cupcake!

Now take a black eyeliner pencil—we opted for Urban Decay Perversion—and draw smile lines with stitches and outline the pink on your nose the same way too!

Double braids add to the country farm vibe!

Bank Robber: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

Last year we did a few fun super simple Halloween DIY costumes and it was SO MUCH fun we just had to do more this year too!  

First up, an old timey bank robber!

Here’s what you’ll need: For your outfit opt for black pants and shoes, a black and white striped top (go for all black if you don’t own stripes), black gloves.

You'll also need a bag for all your stolen loot!  An old white or cream pillow case will do the trick! Use a black sharpie to draw a big dollar sign $ on it...because otherwise how will you remember what’s inside?! ;)

Ok now for your makeup. Start out from whatever point you’re most comfortable. Maybe that means a bare face or maybe that means your current routine, it’s whatever you want! On Izzy, we used foundation, powder, blush, bronzer, and highlight. So her basic  complexion was on point before we drew the mask! Ok now grab a black eyeliner and sketch your eye mask outline.

Now fill in the mask! We used Mehron black cream makeup, you can snag it on Amazon for a few dollars! Not able to get ahold of black makeup? Fill in mask with your eyeliner or layer on black eyeshadow to fill in the mask.

Now the fun pop of color! You really can wear anything lip you want but I just love the contrast of this bold red with the black and white outfit! Bank robbers like to be glam too! This is Fenty’s Stunna Lip Paint in red and it’s so creamy, smooth, vibrant, and ultra long wearing!

Now you’re ready to pull off your master plan!!! 

 

     

 

 

Special thank you to Indulge Beauty Studio for these awesome photos of the lovely Izzy!

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! 

 

IMG_6643.JPG

 

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

  

IMG_6911.JPG

 

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!  

  

IMG_6912.JPG

 

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!  

  

IMG_6913.JPG

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! 

 

IMG_6914.JPG

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.

 

 

IMG_6917.JPG

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!  

 

IMG_6600.JPG

 

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

 

 

IMG_6594.JPG

 

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! 

 

Special thanks to Indulge Beauty Studio for these amazing photos!
