Yep, I realy like #2 . # 1 is cool too but since it looks like creepy lace work I wear it with a evil bride costume! For the black dress though for sure #2. Great job, I wish I was so good with makeup.

I like the second too. I have to ask is that your real eye color?

No, but don't I wish! My real eye color is quite green, but the lighter blue is more dramatic. :wink:

The blue is not lipstick. I lined my lips first with a black eyeliner pencil, filled them in with a navy blue gell eyeliner and over that added Illamasqua Pure Pigment eyeshadow in the color Alluvium. Blue lipstick would have been much easier. :)

This one was easier and is obviously a darker look. Plus I love having blue lips for some reason..

Obviously Halloween needs to be longer than just one night..


If you want to make things a little more web like, where you put the web lines, mix in a little white on the inside of those lines, but as opposed to filling in the space, go inside the lines you already have, with white lines.

I would also put a red hour glass on the back of the dress :wink:

Doesn't hurt to be a poisonous spider queen! :twisted:

Just a thought. :)

Im a little late putting my 2 cents in but i as well vote for #2. The spiders on the face is really unique looking. You will probably get alot of people saying to you (why didn't i think of that), great all around costume.

Thanks everyone! I ordered a pair of white out contacts. They are white with a black outline. I think it will be a more dramatic touch. I ordered them kinda late so I hope they come in time for Halloween. I'm also thinking of re-doing my vamp look and making it a bit more darker. It is fun to play. :)

Wow! I like the second as well. The white shadows on the webs in the first are really nice. I'd vote for #2 with the shadows.

I also like the # 2. Wish I was better with make up.

I am thinking of doing the white in the web on #2.. I just got some of the "white out" contact lenses, they should make the whole look even more dramatic.
