Halloween 2012

This year we decided we wanted to go all out and dress up. We haven’t been out in fancy dress for a while so wanted to make the most of it. Originally we decided L would go as Cat Women and M would go as Black Widow after a trip to a fancy dress shop and realising we would be too tall for the shop bought catsuits M changed her mind to go as Black Swan.


We both made our costumes in the end. L had on disco pants and a leotard with gloves, a waist belt, boots, pearl necklace and mask. M had on a corset she added feathers too, layered up tutus, black tights and feathers stuck to her body.


To embody the gorgeous Anne Hathaway as Catwomen M did L’s hair in her Lauren’s Way dream rollers. (review coming soon) this gave L’s hair lots of volume.

For make up L wore her amazing Mac Russian Red lipstick and used Rimmel lip liner to get the perfect red lip. She used her Rimmel Scandeleyes Black liner to shape her eyes and the Naked 2 palette to add a touch of eyeshadow to her eyes. She used a combination of Rimmel foundation and bronzers to contour her face. The make up for the look needed to be simple but flawless with all the features defined. 

And of course some gorgeous lashes were needed.

The finished look. With Mac red nails and of course a drink.

M had a practice a few weeks prior to halloween as she wasn’t too sure how the make up would turn out.

Here M applied black gel liner all over the eyes then used various blacks and whites to create the feather effect. Although the shape isn’t quite right M prefers the feather effect here.

On the night her make up looked like this.



M used Rimmel Match perfection foundation in the palest shade and set her face using a matte white eyeshadow. She used blues and whites to create the feather effect but they didn’t stand out as much. Using her favourite product for a natural contour she used No7 blush in honey and a bit of black eyeshadow blended. On the lips she used the new Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks in 107 and 111. She also put in red contacts to finsh the look.

To extend the feathers from the corset L stuck them along Ms shoulder and up her neck using Eylure eyelash glue. They lasted all night with only a few falling off.

She used her new large bun ring from Claire’s and added some feathers too.



Once we had got ready and had a fair few drinks in M’s house we headed out. As it was mid week we weren’t sure where to head and ended up in our favourite cocktail bar.

Our favourite long island ice teas that the barman made red!



How amazing does Russian Red look on L
