How to: Apply desired eyeshadow look. Apply duo lash adhesive to back of sequins & apply to cover lid (generally 2-3 rows), stopping before the crease (it could be uncomfortable).

Tonight I'm going as Blind Mag from Repo! The Genetic Opera. This look works for an array of costumes... Lady Marmalade,Gothic/Vampire, Dead Bride, Dark Fairy, Fallen Angel etc., It's all about EXTREME Lashes, layer them on feathery & thick! I made mine with 5 PAIRS! I had so much fun doing this because 1. I love ridiculous lashes and 2. It's such a dramatic departure from how I normally look, I almost feel like a totally different person! Now, I'm off to finish feathering my costume and do makeup for my darling Amber Sweet. Happy almost Halloween!
Born blind, Mag is given the ability to see by signing her life away in a contract to sing for GeneCo Genetic Opera. She is marked for repossession and is set to deliver her final performance for the company.

One of my Dad's favorite movies is theTerminator and he's always quoting lines from it, so I got the idea to do a terminator/cyborg look for my gig tonight. Light on the gore with the monroemisfitmakeup glamour twist. I wanted it to look as if my face had been ripped away revealing my true form. I rarely do SPX gore makeup, obviously!, that and "face paint" just aren't my genre. So if I can give it a go, anyone can.

Heading to a "Dolls" themed halloween party tonight and this is what I came up with! I thought Barbie was bleh too boring, anyone can put on a wig and pink eyeshadow, so I browsed google and found the above image and combined it with the MAC halloween face chart. Kind of a Cracked Dolly or Demented Little Bo Peep. I wanted this to have more depth like a human eye and less "Anime" but I didn't have the right products on hand. This could pass for two looks in one. With the eyes open it's a broken doll, then close them and you're a crazy animated dolly with a gauged out eye. Way to trip out your drunk friends!
It's kind of hard to take pictures of yourself with your eyes closed but i tried!
Mark Ryden's disturbingly beautiful artwork, his books are a constant staple on my coffee table for inspiration. This is my interpretation of the paintings "Rose" & "Wound" from the collection Blood: Miniature Painting's of Sorrow and Fear.

"Playful" Minnie Mouse. I'm a total disney freak and I thought this was cute, not too scandalous, and I loved the huge bow in the back. I went to Disneyland for the first time in years over the summer, i'm always in LA but never make time to go, and it was just as magical as I remembered!I never wanted to be anything but Minnie Mouse, JEM, Cyndi Lauper, or Madonna for Halloween EVER..not terribly different from every day now :)
Another option is to pull from the yellow in her shoes and do a yellow liner
or you could always go this route...
