Hello there blogosphere! Well, after a few hectic days and a weekend of partying, (plus a day of recovering) I am ready to face Monday with all its bells and whistles; school, work and water.
On Saturday I threw a little post-Halloween/Welcome home Jamie-party to get an excuse to dress up and also to celebrate that my sweetheart is once again home with me. I chose to be a version of Black Swan (it’s impossible to look as good as Natalie Portman in that costume), and Jamie wanted to impress with his harry-Norwegian glossary, which mainly consists of swear words from Sunnmøre, so he dressed up as “Palle” from Klypa. Yeah, I bet you Americans have no idea who that is, and probably a big majority of Norwegians either, so here is a little video that would give you a clue. And yes, it is supposed to be funny, but honestly it’s not my cup of tea, although I think that Jamie did a pretty good job imitating him 🙂
I figured I’d show you how I did the makeup for this. No, I did NOT wear a tutu, instead a wore a plain black dress and black tights. No need to expose my whole rear end, mind you.
First, start with a clean face (and preferably dry hair!).
Next, put your hair in a ponytail and fix with lots of hairspray. Use a “donut” to wrap around the hair to create a bun. Use bobby pins to fasten hair and again, use LOTS of hairspray.
Next, use white theatre makeup and cover the entire face. I used a cheap one that was very cakey, so I had to fix it with lots of powder on top. My poor skin! Then, use an eye-liner to draw the outlines of the eyes. I imagine them to be like wings with a feathered texture.
The use white and silver eye-shadow to fill inside the lines, and then the eye-liner to draw lines over the white/silver area. Use a purple/mahogany lipstick and blush, and et voila, you’re set!
I’ll spare you for most of the pictures, trust me, you don’t want to see them all. But here are a select few. Hope your Halloween was fabulous also!
