Easy FX makeup for Halloween

These are so cool..
Tinsley FX transfers I recently had the chance to try some of their temporary tattoos (Up coming post) but I thought some of you might be interested in these for Halloween.
 The prices are not at all steep compared to purchasing liquid latex, adhesive, remover etc or a kit for around $25 and up then if you aren't naturally skilled at FX makeup the risk of wasting time and money.
These are video's showing a couple of those available and how to apply.
I'm going to have to order some and see what the neighbors think of me with horns and a slashed throat.
Hope this helps some of you with your All Hallows Eve fun!

I will post..I will try to post...I might post...I need more hours in the day

*Waves* I have sat down to post so many times
and it never fails that work or family interrupts and I run out of time. 
So I am glued to my seat and ignoring everything/everyone until I post this quick little post.
(P.S. I am setting up a few scheduled posts so nails coming soon and more whatever I feel like)

So this summer has been busy and insane but I managed to put a bit of
makeup on in between all of the is my quicky look
(Products used will be a mess through out because I like chaos)

Did I mention the pictures today are all crappy cell phone pictures because I had a new picture app that I was playing with. :o)

BB Cream in Etude House Magic Natural beige (way too light) mixed with my Skin miracle transformer in medium tan which is still a little too light but close.

Did I mention I did not do my hair because...well I was lucky to put on makeup and clothes

Don't mine the weird focus/lack of this phone app is cranky and likes to self edit even when you shut self edit off and threaten to take a million pictures of neon glitter.

Woohoo a color accurate eyeball! The ballz are sporting All Evil Shades (big shock)
Padawan as a base, Eerie as hilight below the brow, Frosties Intervention in the inner 1/3 and blended into Yellow snowballs (patted in the center and blended out) and Re gifted Xmas sweater applied very lightly and heavily blended in outer v, Whooo r u mixed with moonlit and brushed at inner corner, Havoc gel liner on upper lash line and Blithe on lower. 

Look it's grumpy getting annoyed with stupid phone app

Do not clip phone on sun visor or you will get strange pictures when you forget to close stupid app. :o)

Oh look my Octopod necklace my oldest daughter got me for my birthday

Visor pictures rule....this is the top of my know you've always wanted to know what the top of my head looked like

when you flip the visor to the side because you still haven't noticed you didn't turn the thing off

How most of the world sees me (5' 1") 

When you realize you left the thing on because you changed CD's and heard it click

Kisses! The days kisses are Deviant Lips- Stormy with Hardcore Lips- Río de Celeste dabbed on with finger

And proof I am capable of a smile
Rest of the makeups:
Matte Silk finishing powder
Mascara- Maybelline volume Express one by one 
Brows- Dark Arts to fill lightly and cheapy clear brow wax pencil from ebay

This is as subtle as my makeup goes anything less is naked. :op

PBS Idea Channel on nail art

I really enjoyed this video and thought you might find it interesting

What do you think? Is there anything that cannot be art?
As an artist and the daughter of a professional artist, personally I place no limits on art and yet I easily see the line between craft and art.

Gothic couture and my favorite Fangirl

A little while back I got the sweetest, unexpected gift
in the mail from my #1 Fangirl and very dear friend Lynn. Wanna see?
Isn't it gorgeous!
I was drooling over this ring (OK I drool over all of Mykas art and jewelry)
But this one I just love and my sweetie Lynn was obviously stalking paying attention and she spoiled me.
You can see more of  Myka Jelinas fantasy art here she is one of my favorite fantasy artists.
 Gothic couture is the painting this is from, I just love Belladonnas face.
and well I had to do my nails to compliment her so I made these two polishes to suit Belladonna.
The purple is a wine base with teal shift which makes it look purple on the nail and the teal has a sweet pink shift which I did not get a decent picture of either shift.
Both almost came off as holos in certain light
and pretty shimmery goodness in other
I'm thinking I should name them
You can see a bit of the base better

and then the blue/teal shift...almost metallic

see the blue flecks in the teal

 macro to show the pretties
one more peek and Belladonna and huge hugs and kisses to Lynn...I love you doll!
