Halloween Makeup: Queen Bee Tutorial

Hi Bellas,

Over the last week or so I've been in contact with one of my favorite youtube gurus, MissChievous. If you're seen her videos, you know that she is amazing when it comes to makeup...just simply amazing. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on a Halloween look. She suggested a bug theme because she wanted to do a Ladybug look and had another request for a bee look.

At first I was a bit stumped. A bee look? I googled pictures and found that bees just have a plain black head. I decided to take a more artistic approach. I used the colors of yellow and black and decided to create shapes on the face similar to the bee's stinger and stripes. I like how it came out!

My boyfriend gave me the great idea to do a Queen Bee look, and to take a cheap crown and attach antennae to it. A quick trip to wal-mart for a princess crown kit, some pipe cleaners and pom poms and I had my look!

I hope you enjoy :)
