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!

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! 

Wonder Woman Halloween Makeup

Jessica Palmer

One of the things I love the most about makeup is its ability to impart confidence. The other day I wasn’t feeling the greatest and rather than doing nothing I decided that nothing could make me feel better than turning myself into Wonder Woman!

I remember watching old reruns of the tv show with Lynda Carter as a child and thinking she was so strong and so beautiful...seeing the movie this year with Gal Gadot was so inspiring too!

The latest version of Wonder Woman ditches the classic red lipstick for more of a fresh face. I used Dior Airflash for a flawless finish and NYX Precision Brow Pencil for a strong full Brow.

I also used my favorite metallic powder and mixing liquid by Mehron to paint on her signature headband! I had this amazing statement cuff already but you could easily use the same gold pigment to paint them on!

Of course I had to try a comic book version too! I love all the pop art makeup looks floating around right now...simple black and white lines to accentuate facial structure, add red lipstick and there you go!

I changed the headband to the more classic shape.

I can’t decide which is my fave! How amazing is it that makeup can show on the outside how we want to feel on the inside? I have to admit, it’s impossible to feel bad when your face is painted like Diana herself!

Unicorn: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

2017 was the year of the unicorn for sure...they’ve been everywhere from T-shirt’s, to coffee mugs, and even our Frappuccino’s! So it should come as no surprise that it also happens to be an excellent do it yourself costume idea!  

 

IMG_6153.JPG

Chances are you have most of these things lying around your house or can snag the things you’re missing for a few bucks!

Ok so first things first you need to make a horn! A piece of paper will do the trick...a glittery or metallic piece of scrapbooking paper is even better! Simply roll it into an ice cream cone shape and secure it with hot glue!

Punch two holes through each side of the end of the cone and put ribbon through it so you u can tie it around your head like a headband! The best hairstyle for this look will be pigtails or better yet twist your pigtails into double buns! 

 

IMG_6151.JPG

For makeup, the brighter the better! Use a bright pink blush and apply it everywhere you’d normally contour, bronze, or blush your face. This will add dimension and color in a fun way!

Added bonus points to use glitter or metallic eyeshadow on your eyes and down your hair part. I used my favorite metallic powder and mixing liquid from Mehron!  And for the paint flecks on the forehead, dilute your shadow with setting spray and flick it onto your forehead.

Toss on your twirliest fluffiest dress or tulle skirt! And there you have it...your unicorn dreams have come true!

Wind-up Doll: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

Forget buying a costume! For me, the best part about dressing up for Halloween is making your costume yourself! Here’s a super easy DIY and chances are you have most or all of these things already! Here we go...

 

This look is selfie worthy for sure! 
This look is selfie worthy for sure! 

Ok so first things first, you’re going to have to make the wind-up key! It’s fairly simple. You’ll need: an empty paper towel roll, a piece of construction paper or cardboard, ribbon, aluminum foil, and some kind of glue {hot glue is best since it dries instantly!}.

Here’s a little peek at the makeup and supplies you’ll need. 

 

1. Cut a figure 8 out of the paper. Then cut out smaller circles in each end, so it looks like a giant number 8!

2. Cover the 8 and the paper towel roll in foil.  

3. Hot glue them together to make the key shape. 

4. Punch a hole on each side of the base of the paper towel role and thread the ribbon through.  

5. Be sure to cut the ribbon long enough to wrap around your waist and tie a bow!  

6. Side note: depending on the materials you use, the key may be heavy and sag after a while. If it does, you can tie ribbon or fishing wire to the key and attach it to your straps or shoulders to distribute the weight.

Here’s what the key should look like! Be sure to put on your favorite short length dress! Bonus points if you have knee highs!

Cute hair is a must!  

Ok so now for the look...put your hair in pigtails!  

 

 

IMG_5851.JPG

Now for the makeup...

Use black eyeliner and draw “marionette” lines around your mouth connecting the corner of your lips to your chin.  

 

 

IMG_5852.JPG

Bold bright lips is key! Think pink! 

 

 

 

IMG_5853.JPG

Circular bright blush finishes off the doll vibe! As far as the rest of your makeup goes, just do it the way you’re comfortable doing! Add lashes for extra flutter if you’re feeling bold! 

 

 

Here’s the final look! So fun right?! Easy peasy DIY.

Fall Makeup Look Breakdown: Mattes and Mauves

Jessica Palmer

The air is brisk, the leaves are changing, and there's even been a bit of rain---It's finally feeling like Fall here in NorCal! Fall means coats, scarves, boots, and {{my favorite}} deeper lipstick! Seriously how lovely is Aine McMullen from Cast Images?! P&P Stylist Ashley and I loved crafting this fall inspired look for a photoshoot with Nicole Cook! Aine is the epitome of fall beauty trend in this shot...

 

 

This fall, the 90's throwback trend is still alive and well. We went for a more matte look with a deeper lip and tousled hair. Here is a breakdwon of the products used so you can recreate the look yourself!

 

 

 

For the skin, I reached for Face Atelier's Ultra Foundation in shade No.2 Ivory. I love this foundation because it provides ample coverage without caking up, is buildable, looks like skin, feels so lightweight, and comes in every shade imagineable! The unique formula boasts a built in primer and works for all skin types.

 

 

 

For the eyes, I couldn't resist reaching for my Mehron EYE Powder palette. This thing seriously comes with me to every job. So blendable and pigmented...and the shades are everything you'll need to craft everything from a barely there natural to a super dramatic look. For Aine, I gave her a classically contoured eye with a little twist...Love the hint of mauve in Aine's outer edge to tie in the lip shade!

 

 

Ahh this lip!!! When Maybelline launched their matte shades, this one quickly became my favorite: Touch of Spice. Long wearing, velvety finish, super affordable...and that perfect hint of grunge that's so hot right now!


So Cheers to Mauves, Mattes, and Maybelline,
