Halloween Makeup Looks

Hey, it’s NikkiSimone here and this post is all about Halloween. I’ve put together five makeup looks that will help you stand out in the crowd. All of the products used are things I already had in my makeup bag or items I found at my local Walgreens.

First up was, by far, the easiest look to create. I used a devil face tattoo from Walgreens, some heavy black eyeliner, red lipstick, and some fun lashes.

Next up are the big cats. I kept the same makeup and lashes, ditched the red lip, added a little white makeup in the mouth area, and put on my whiskers.

I removed the white makeup and whiskers and used this stencil kit to create some leopard spots.

The next look was so much fun to create. I started with a foundation that was much lighter than my skin tone to give a pale look. I used some dope lashes and used a liquid liner to draw a spider web.

The final look is always a hit. You can find tons of tutorials on Youtube.

Switching It Up

Hello all, and hello fall! It’s Nikki Simone here. Can you guess my favorite thing about fall? No, not the cooler weather. No, not the changing leaves, although they are purrty. It’s the FASHION. Fall fashion is just everything, the layers, the scarves, the boots, the coats, the beanies! I’m all about that hipster life.

I decided to take a few items of clothing, from basic to extreme, mix and match them, and come up with several different looks that can work with fall.

First up is a basic white tee. I started out in a white tee, green skinny pants, an anorak jacket, and black beanie.

Next, I ditched the anorak jacket an threw on a faux fur vest. Still simple, just a touch of edge.

After that I switched to a denim button up. I tied it in the front, an threw on my favorite gold necklace. I loooove this necklace. I basically wear it with everything.

I kept the denim shirt and changed into a pleather circle skirt, accompanied by a pair of knee socks. I’m so extra. The shirt can be worn open, giving a little cholo action, or tied in the front.

I switched back into the white tee and faux fur vest combo. This time I tied the tee up in the front. I clearly have a thing for tying up shirts. It just reduces the bulk of otherwise loose fitting pieces.

White shirt comes back off and I switch to a basic black long sleeve tee. All black eeerrrthang.

Off comes the pleather skirt and I throw on a black mini skirt, add the vest and my beanie for some edge.

And lastly I throw a printed peplum blazer on top of the black tee and mini skirt. Trying to class it up a bit to finish it all off. I kept on the knee high socks and combat boots though. I mean, I still have to be me right?
