Día de los Muertos Makeup (with Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit)

Hello World,

I haven't blogged for too long!  It just feels as though I have no free time lately. I did have time to go out this last weekend in my Halloween costume though. I was a sugar skull, from Day of the Dead.

I was originally going to be a lion, but I never got around to sewing a costume together. My favorite part of Halloween is makeup, so I thought I would make a costume that mostly focuses on my face. I was on Pinterest and came across multiple sugar skull pictures, so I decided to try it out.


I didn't have white face paint, so I tried to cover my face with cheap white eyeshadow and foundation that was too light, but it didn't really cover my original skin color. I used liquid eyeliner for most of my face, and random eyeshadows I had in my stash.  I also had a really old tube of roll on glitter that I layered over my blue eyeshadow. 


I also used liquid eyeliner on my lips and it didn't come off when I drank through a straw or munched on a bagel. 



I received some free Kiss lashes complimentary of Influenster in my latest Beauty Blogger VoxBox to test. I really liked how dramatic and large they were, and they stayed on all night! 

The included glue didn't hurt my lids when I removed the lashes, and it didn't leave a weird residue either. The Starter Kit came with an applicator, but it didn't help me with applying the lashes because I am used to applying false lashes with my plain fingers. The tool would help beginners though.

You can find more lashes here: Link. They are only like $4.99 at Walgreens!
