Halloween Nonsense

Every year I throw a party called the Feast of Screams. These are some of the ridiculous pictures from the night. My friends are pretty creative haha, it was smaller than usual, but ended up being VERY entertaining. I’ll explain more below… Enjoy 🙂

I’m supposed to be Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games. I know, I know, it came off very Nicky Minaj. Whatever!

This was a game we played called “Tempt Your Fate”. Basically, it’s a bunch a fates/dares that you MUST participate in if you choose to draw a fate. There were a few prizes (Halloween t-shirts) thrown in there, but most consisted of ridiculous things to do + taking shots from the “consequence bowl”  which was an unholy mixture of vodka, cranberry juice and a bit of moonshine for good measure.

Fate was unkind – trick or treat to one house (this was 4 days prior to Halloween hahaha)

Image

Tempting fate was a mistake – you must trade costumes with tribute (cue Effie Trinket)

Image

Punishment – solo dance performance (and the resulting picture hahaha)

Image

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

Overall it was a good time! I have a pic of my husband and dog on my phone I’ll try to upload later. They were “Spaghetti and Meatballs” 🙂 SOOOO cute!

Edit: FOUND IT!

Happy (belated) Halloween!

Kardashian Kontour

Let me start by saying, I love the Kardashians. My husband, hates that I love their shows. I can’t help it! They have developed and created an empire, branding and pushing their businesses with every rise and fall of their fame. Genius!

Anyways, love them or hate them there is one thing the Kardashians know how to do well…makeup!

Yes, they have a great base to work with, but they do employ some seriously good tricks to their makeup routine that gives them all that glow-y chiseled look, most notably on Kim.

After researching (googling, duh) I’ve learned that this can be achieved by contouring with light and dark creams or powders. It’s really fascinating and similar to techniques used in stage makeup.

Kim tweeted an example today of the before and after. Isn’t that insane? Im going to be testing this technique soon, there are TONS of YouTube video tutorials.

I’ll let you guys know how it goes!

Have you ever contoured? Do you find it to make a difference?
