October is here and you know what that means…pumpkins, cider and Halloween parties!
With a professional face/body artist in the family my inclination for costumes usually turns toward make-up oriented ensembles. To pull off the more complex of these looks, you really need to go to an experienced painter! Try searching for a local branch of a Face and Body Art Guild.
One of my favorite looks for 2016 is the Pop-Art Look. To complete your outfit, try going with a polka dot dress or bright primary colors. For a simpler approach, stick to a black tank or tee, jeans and boots. Black, red, yellow or blue wigs are another way to make this look pop!
A second, slightly creepier pick, is optical illusion art. For these looks, keep clothing extremely basic – all black or jeans and tee. Let the makeup do all the work.
Lastly, despite seeing TONS of this look last year, I’m still a huge fan of the sugar skull. Complete this look by incorporating a band of flowers in your hair and donning a slinky, long dress. For men, a suit and hat combo work just fine!
