CB here…and not a whole lot going on in the TV world that we have not covered extensively already, so I thought I would take this time to discuss another topic. MAKEUP!
Everyone must be so excited that the seasonal decorations are already in stores across the country! No, it is not October; and it is not even close to Halloween…but if you’re anything like me, you’ve been waiting for this time of year since this time of year a year ago! Stores ready to fill your hopes and dreams with ghosts and goblins…and supplies to aid the scary things that come from your own imagination. Anyone that lives for Halloween scours the internet machine for costume ideas, even if you have one set in stone. I have found some amazing artists that honestly scare the holy Beetlejuice out of me because they are so talented; and that is a great thing! These artists started at an astounding young age, completely self-taught and keep pushing the envelope. Mark my words, you will see these names in the big leagues one day!
Kate Werner was 15 when this article was written, and she refers to herself as a “makeup shapeshifter”! She states that some makeups can take one hour up to twelve.
Saida Mickeviciute is a London-based 19 year old, inspired by horror movies and Tim Burton. Her creations result in ocular trickery!
Regardless of what youtube tutorial you watch, or what google image you emulate, the artistry of these two young women will leave you in awe.
Halloween is the best time of the year. It is a time to be someone other than yourself, a time when you can really let go of the everyday minutia. I am sure we have a great many viewers that are struggling to find a costume for this year. I urge you all to reply to this post and help your fellow horror friends out. You can post a picture, or an idea…the web is your oyster! To start things off I will post my 1st place costume from 2015, “Alice with her head off”. Yes, CB strives for, and usually takes that 1st place!
Let’s make this year unforgettable as a horror family! Teamwork makes the dream work! Start sharing!!!!
