Happy Halloween

31 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

I understand that the devastation of Hurricane Sandy has us all shaken to the core, and has been life changing for many. For those who have lost loved ones, possessions or even just power, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am praying that you all come out of this safe and sound. For those fortunate enough to have power, do not hesitate to open your arms to friends and neighbors who may not be as fortunate.

Today is a day that has always been a celebration for children, teens and even some adults!! Halloween is a fun and light hearted holiday that allows us to let our imaginations free. For those who can, please take the time to enjoy this day. Dress your children, siblings, cousins etc. up and have fun. Try trick or treating or just enjoying the outdoors while there is still daylight!!

Just a few tips for today:
1. Trick or treat during daylight and stop to head home before dark. Many street lights are still out and power lines are on the ground. This is a safety hazard.

2. If you are driving around try and wrap up before dusk because many traffic signals are out.

3. It has been very chilly since yesterday, so be sure to layer before going out.

4. HAVE FUN!!

What are your plans for today?

Thanks for reading. And remember….

Out of this World (Halloween Post)

28 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

I hope you all enjoyed your pre-Halloween weekend!! I went to a Halloween party hosted by my company and I ran into the worst scenario!! At 6pm I made the decision that I did not want to be Medusa, my planned Halloween costume!! At this time I racked my brain and wardrobe for some idea of what to be and this is what I came up with.

An ALIEN!! This was the perfect costume for me…quick and easy to put together. I went for a warrior princess vibe with my hair and outfit. I love the color play that you can do with a costume like this and I definitely recommend it for those who haven’t picked a costume yet!! You can go big and paint your entire body or just your face. As far as makeup….the options are endless, this is the perfect costume for somebody who wants to let some of their creativity out!! I definitely would do this again for a themed party or event.


Have you planned your costume yet?

Thank you for reading….and remember…

Tuesday Tip : Mix and Match!! (Halloween Post)

23 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

For all of my fashion lovers out there, we know that mixing prints is huge right now! Floral with stripes, polka dots with plaid…. if it works, it’s a go!! This idea of mixing and matching prints and patterns can help you with a unique and fun Halloween look, as well as your daily fashion. You can pick a theme for your face paint and use patternsΒ  to bring your look to a new place this Halloween!!

Tonight I have taken a request from one of our Hue Lovers , Lisa F and put my own twist on it. Lisa requested a patchwork doll look for Halloween, so I took that request and decided to make it a mixed pattern patchwork doll. I pulled my inspiration from patterns that I enjoy: polka dots, floral and plaid! I think it came together to be a creepy but fun Halloween look!! I would like to give a special thank you to LisaΒ  for her wonderfully inspiring idea !! I hope you enjoyed the result!!

What are your favorite patterns to play with?

I hope you enjoyed this look !! Thank you for reading and remember….

Tuesday Tip: Less is More Pt. 2 (Halloween Post)

16 Oct

 

Hello Hue Lovers!!

Today I would like to give you a quick Tuesday Tip that will help you with your Halloween plans this years!! Save money!!!! Instead of going out and spending $25-$50 on a Halloween costume, take $10 to the dollar store and get everything you need for an awesome Halloween look. Makeup is a great way to bypass paying for a costume and turning less into more. You can pick a makeup look and use what clothes, accessories and props you have in your house to complete your look. As I’ve said in the past, I am a huge fan of the impact that a split face has so that always helps your homemade costume. In my first post Tuesday Tip: Less is More (Halloween Post!!). , I showed you two looks….here is another great half face Halloween idea!!

Tonight I have done a Halloween look that I call “The Transition”, it depicts a girl becoming a comic book character. She goes from a pretty girl to a wide eyed, pop art styled cartoon girl. With this look I can wear a simple outfit and call it a day!! It only requires about 6 items that can all be purchased at a dollar store. These items will fill all of your pop art/comic book needs: black eyeliner and white eyeliner, a bright eyeshadow (I used blue), a bright blush and three lipsticks. One lipstick will serve as your dot maker and the other two will be your lip colors. This can keep your Halloween costs under $10!!!! You can even pick up some makeup for a play, musical or just for fun!!

What do you plan to be this Halloween?
I hope this tip helped you!! Thanks for reading and remember….

Tuesday Tip: Less is More (Halloween Post!!)

2 Oct

Hello Lovers!!
October is hereee and that means that it is officially Halloween season. I have never been the type to say “I absolutely have to do something this year.”…. but now I see Halloween as the perfect opportunity to practice more artistic makeup. I will be doing a few Halloween posts a week showing looks, products and tricks.

Today I wanted to do a post about one of my favorite things to see….the half face. I love the effect that you get when you only do two different looks on one face, thus the title ‘Less is More’. You don’t have to do a full faced sugar skull or android to get an great effect!! You can do two different looks on your face and if they are well done, they will look just as amazing as a full face!! My favorite combo is to do a face that is extremely dramatic next to really pretty natural makeup. I feel that the contrast really makes a statement.

This technique also can cut your makeup time in half, so I definitely recommend trying it out this year for some of the Halloween festivities that you attend. Just a note: when planning to do a half face, I have found that a good matte black eyeshadow is KEY! This will help with shading and transitioning one look to the other.

What is your favorite Halloween look?
