The Balm ‘Frat Boy’ face blush, ‘Russian Red’ by MAC, and NYX liquid eyeliner. 

Prep:

Step 1: I just used my foam curlers, but you can use a 1” curling iron to create soft curls.

Step 2: Your usual foundation routine. Create cat-eyes with your liquid eyeliner, a good amount of blush on  the apples of your cheeks, and do not forget the red lipstick!

Step 3: Undo your curls and tie into a ponytail. 

Step 4: Tie a red bandanna around your hair. I happened to have one that was made into a headband. But, if you don’t have one like I do, look below on how to fold one.

You definitely did it!

 

Happy Halloween!

Halloween Costume Ideas!

It’s finally Halloween season! Time to dress up, get that sugar high, and take lots of shots! You would be surprised how you can incorporate a pin-up vibe to any Halloween costume. Here are few ideas:

Morticia Addams

The queen of cutting off the roses, Morticia Addams is the baddest mom on the block. Her long black hair, silky white skin and demure look is a classic Halloween costume. All you’ll need is a long black dress, a wig (if you already don’t have luscious locks), and killer red lipstick.

Sugar Skull (Day of the Dead)

The tradition of the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos is full of festivities. That includes the sugar skull face. Read more on the history of the sugar skull here on Idda van Munster’s blog. This is a really fun costume where you can put your makeup and face painting skills to work. A fun dress, and some flowers creates the look.

Sailor

A really fun pin-up look giving a nod to the WWII sailors. Some shorts, a sailor top, red lipstick and curled hair and you’ve got yourself a costume. Accessorize with some necklaces such as anchors, swallow birds or even add a temporary tattoo and a sailor hat!

Rosie the Riveter

Lastly, you cannot forget the iconic Rosie the Riveter. She is the poster woman representing the American woman who worked the factories during WWII. She is a pin-up icon! This costume is super easy, and watch out for my tutorial on how to recreate this look!
