What Are You Going as For Halloween?

I haven’t dressed up for halloween since college. I know! Terrible. Mr. Bets and I also leave a giant basket of candy on the front step and flee so we don’t have to answer the door all night. Total DINKS. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love a good costume. Especially if it makes me look pretty and come-hither in mysterious way. When Beautylish and The (Rachel!) Zoe Report asked me to create some gorgeous Halloween #beBOOtiful inspiration boards and products to get the look, I couldn’t help but get in the spirit. Now I’m dying to know what all of you crafty and creative girls are doing for costumes?


Inspiration: Sienna Miller in Factory Girl
Products: 1. A stay-put cat eye calls for Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencil in Jet ($24).  2. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Pink Sugar ($24) delivers a sexy-sweet glow. 3. No 60s look would be complete without a peachy nude lip. Ilia In My Room ($24) is universally flattering.


Inspiration: Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra 
Products: 1. Flawless skin fit for a queen calls for Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15 ($38).  2. Accentuate those cheekbones with peachy NARS Blush in Orgasm ($28).  3. Dior Style Liner in Noir Black ($34) is as major as liquid liners come.  4. Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow in Matte Navy Blue ($20) has a cult following for a reason. That blue won’t budge all night. 5. For this look you need a true nude like NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere ($25). Skip the shine and anything pink!


Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman
Products: 1. Create a ethereal smokey eye with Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Eyeshadow in Turquoise and Steel ($23 each) 2. Add the Beauty Thrifter’s favorite Eylure Pre-Glued Corner Lashes ($6) for drama.  3. Smashbox Girls on Film Blush Rush ($24) takes plum to a darkly romantic place when paired with 4. Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Berry Nude ($8).
