There's absolutely no rhyme or reason for picking these ideas. Although, now that I think about it, we should've had some rhyme in there. Maybe for next year's.
For this month, we did SUGARSKULLS!!
So here it is, my sugarskull. To be honest, I felt I looked more like an evil clown than a decorative skull commemorating the Day of the Dead. I used talcom powder to make my face a little lighter and an old black Halloween grease pen for the nose and eyes which turned out to be runny and too shiny. I ran out of black eye liner so my high contrast fine line details were pretty limited. I compensated by finishing off the look with body jewels. That's right....I vajazzled my face.* Hey, Tom's been gone for 2 months, its not like they were getting used. Heh....jewels. Anyway, I wish I had a decent camera. I'd like this to be less of a hipstamatic photo project, but for now it'll just have to do. Side note: How traumatic would it have been to wake up my kids with this make up on? Muahahahaha....next time.
Drawing on your face with eyeliners and lip pencils is a little more difficult than I'd thought. My nose itches. Wish I could've found some orange pencils. Thank you, black lipstick.
I can't wait to wash my face.
Also, my eyebrows are still ridiculous.
*The body jewels mentioned were a Xmas present from Matthew due to a facebook conversation where Martha said she hadn't heard of vajazzling before.
