Halloween Inspiration - Lady Jack Skellington

Monday, October 26, 2015

Hey loves! This past weekend Ben and I threw a Halloween party! It was such a success and we had an amazing time! From the get-go Ben and I wanted to go all out for our party. The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of our favorites as well as Jack Skellington himself. So, our hearts were set on becoming "The Skellington's," for the evening. I immediately jumped on YouTube and started looking up tutorials like crazy! (I will link them below) 

For my look, I purchased white & black cream make-up from party city. I applied the cream make-up with a foundation brush and used flat angle brushes for detail. It worked for the evening but, next time I am definitely going to invest in some quality make-up like Snazaroo and the Makeup Forever Flash Palette. I bought some lashes from Walmart for one time use. I have naturally long lashes, so I really don't wear fake lashes. I used a TooFaced palette for shadows and created a smoky look. I used the black shadow in this palette to detail and create shadows within the look. Then I used this setting spray from party city. Setting spray helps keep the product in place.

Ben's look was a lot more intense than mine. We needed a bald cap, spirit gum, liquid latex as well as black and white body paint. Together, it took about 5 hours to get us ready. Ben's look required a few layers and in-between his layers drying, I would get myself ready. Overall, I am so proud of myself for how our looks turned out. We were a huge hit at the party and had so much together getting ready. I highly recommend this look if your attending a party! You will get many compliments!

Here are the YouTube tutorials I used for our costumes:
