Halloween Makeup: Grumpy Cat - Easy!

Hey Guys,

So I’m back with my final Halloween Makeup Tutorial for 2013.  I was overall pretty pleased with how all the looks came out this year.  I planned in advance and had time to practice.  Last year, while I was in the middle of working full time and going back to school for my MBA I thought my tutorials were so last minute and a little crazy looking lol.  Anywho, I digress…this last tutorial is something that I figured you could bust out last minute if you didn’t have a costume.  Check it out!

Halloween Makeup: Bald & Bearded - Walter White from Breaking Bad

Hey Guys,

So I think this might just be my favorite Halloween Makeup Tutorial this year.  If you’re a fan of the hit show Breaking Bad like me, I bet you’re sad that the series just ended this month.  The show became a huge hit in the last two years so I have a feeling a lot of the fans will be paying homage to the lead character Walt.  As a huge fan of the show, I will be transforming myself into a bald, middle-aged Caucasian Drug Lord.  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

Who's excited for Fall?  I am am!  I'm all about the berry and wine tones to incorporate into my makeup routine.  Senna's new Fall Collection made it to my mailbox just in time.  I've been playing with products from their Midnight Wine Collection and I am in love.  I've always said that Senna is an under-rated brand that you need to pay attention to.  Check it out!

Halloween Makeup - Maleficent Evil Queen Tutorial

Hi Bellas,

It’s time for my second Halloween tutorial!  First I had something cute and bright via Marge Simpson and today I wanted to go glam and dark via the Disney Evil Queen Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.  This look has been done a few times on YouTube but I wanted to give my take on the look.  Also, next year the Maleficent movie is coming out starring Angelina Jolie so I thought it’d be great to bring back this character.  Enjoy!
