Halloween Makeup Haul

Ok, it's confession time.  My name is Michelle, and I'm a Halloweenaholic.  Do I need a 10 step program?  Maybe.  From the middle of September till October 31st, I can't go into any type of a store with out buying Halloween makeup, or something Halloween related.

It doesn't matter what store it is, I can find something there that I could use for a costume, or some Halloween look that I'm scheming up in my head.  Yes that includes grocery stores (I've found some good deals on false lashes there), thrift stores (a Halloween mecca around here), pharmacies and the handy ol' Walmart.

So yesterday I went to Walmart to pick up the treats that we'll be handing out to the neighbourhood kiddies this year, and I ended up coming home with this...

I'm looking forward to trying out the Fantasy Makers kits by Wet n Wild.  They come with reusable stencils, a cream glitter palette with some really pretty mettalic shades, and a black eye liner pencil.  The kit on the top left is called Devilish Diva and the one below is Gilded Angel.  I also got some latex horns, some fangs and lots of cream makeup, glitter gel and of course some fake blood.

And here are some of my false lashes finds for Halloween:

From Zellers:  (These are actually really pretty!  And some of these even have lower lashes too!)

 From Value Village I found these cheap 'n cheerfuls:

And finally from Shoppers Drug Mart I found these wacky ones:

I've been busy all month doing up some fun Halloween looks, and this week is crazy BUSY!!!

My daughters had their Spooktacular party at school today.  One was a vampire and the other a zombie.  So we were up bright and earlier this morning getting their hair and makeup done.  They looked awesome for a quick 15 min session.  If I had more time it could have looked better, but I can't imagine their teachers being ok with them coming in late because I was doing their makeup.

So the rest of my week looks like this:  2 costume parties on Friday that I am doing makeup for, our schools Fall Fair on Saturday morning where I am doing Halloween makeup and face painting from 10am - 1pm and then some makeup appointments in the afternoon for clients.  And of course doing up the girls on Sunday night for trick or treating.

What are you doing this weekend???  Anyone getting dressed up and heading out?  Let me know what your dressing up as, I love hearing all about your costumes.  Have a fun and safe Halloween!!!


  1. I love Hallowe'en too!!! I've been scheming up our costumes for months only to realize that we're flying all day Saturday and missing the parties! :( Love the zombie look - that hair is hilarious and the make up is great. What are you using for the 'blood' look? lipstick?

  2. Hi Marianne! That's too bad about missing the parties, I quess you'll have lots of time to prepare for next year. Or maybe you can have a belated Halloween party in your new house!!

    I just used a tube of that Fake blood that I got at Zellers or Walmart. Nothing to fancy.

  3. Love the looks Michelle! I went to work as a ventriloquist dummy on Friday, it was a big hit!

  4. Hey Groovy girl! Thanks for checking out my blog. Sounds like an awesome costume, I'd love to see a picture :)

  5. I don't have a full costume picture but here is a picture of the face :) Make-up could be a lot better but that's the best is going to get at 7am, LOL!
