Last-minute Halloween party? We’ve all been there! My go-to usual costume was always a school girl (having my kilt from high school comes in handy, though I’m not sure if it would fit me this year! Haha) We all know that 90’s Pop Culture is all the rage right now and I wanted to pay homage to one of my favourite shows – Sailor Moon. But… going as one of the sailors requires a lot more planning and a costume. So, I decided to do Luna!
It’s a step up from the usual “cat makeup” that’s also a popular last-minute costume. Her colours were deep dark purple and a soft pink on her ears, so I kept the colour scheme. And of course, her signature upside-down yellow moon! (TIP: Use a nude eye liner to outline the moon, then fill it in with eyeshadow). Halloween is also the perfect time to try out trends that you normally wouldn’t try – here’s me doing ombre lips for the first time.
Products used: Urban Decay Naked Skin in ‘5.0’, NARS blush in ‘Desire’, MAC eyeshadow ‘Parfait Amour’, Maybelline Master Graphic eyeliner in Black, MAC eyeshadow ‘Chrome Yellow’ and Rimmel eye definer “in the nude” for the moon. For ombre lips: Colour Pop lippie stix in ‘Nevermind’ and Make-Up Forever Waterproof liquid lip colour in “20”.
What do you think? Do you have a go-to last-minute Halloween costume?
