Trick or treat

My favorite thing about Halloween is the costumes and makeup. But an other thing about Halloween that gets me real excited is decorating!

We celebrated late and had our party on the 4th of November so decorations were on sale. Yaay! We bought skeletons, headstones, plastic pests and lots of spiders and cobwebs. He made pita pizza with olive spiders for our guests and dessert was candy shaped as snakes, skulls, alligators and mice. Yes, and drinks.

We tested the head in a jar idea, and it really looked like we had put heads in jars around the house! Haha, that’s so crazy I love it! Google head in a jar halloween to see how it’s done. I was so happy about how the apartment turned out. There was literally cobwebs everywhere. I decorated while he was at work so when he came home he was pretty shocked, even though he knew I was going to decorate with fake spiders. He has arachnophobia and the first thing he saw when he walked through the front door was a spider hanging from the ceiling in the hallway.

Now it’s time to start preparing for Christmas. I have already bought almost all the Christmas presents, I really enjoy it actually! Christmas is my favorite holiday, but Halloween is in a solid second place.

What is your favorite holiday?

Pop art is for everyone

Late post, but I wanted to show you guys our Halloween makeup and costumes!

I did a fun and easy makeup on him and me for a small gathering at home with close friends. We spent a lot of time considering before we agreed on these looks, and it turned out pretty cool! As you can hopefully tell we are a 1950’s style pop art couple. Desperate housewife and cheating husband. I always like making up stories for looks like this and the story here is that I had enough of his cheating so after finding lipstick on his collar I stabbed him in the chest. Then wiped my hands on my apron. I don’t know if you can see it on these photos, but I put lipstick on his neck and collar, fake blood on his chest and on my apron.

I didn’t take close ups of our finished looks, but at least here you have one ย ofmy makeup before I did my hair. Makeup is mostly Flawless by Sonya, but I used a Babor concealer for the spots. Lenses are from Superkul.

What was your Halloween look this year?
