Greek Goddess Last minute Halloween Costume.

27 Oct 2013

I came to the conclusion a few weeks ago that it was probably best for me not to do any Halloween inspired posts seeing as I'm not the biggest fan of Halloween and have only been trick or treating once in my life. However, yesterday as I was looking at my collection of eye shadows that I've hardly ever used, I was wondering what I could create out of all the shimmery eye shadows that I would never wear normally;then I had that light bulb moment to create a last minute Halloween look in the style of a Greek Goddess. This is a very simple look and will be easy to recreate.

I thought we'd start with my favorite part of this look! I applied my normal foundation, concealer and powder for my base so you can use whatever you would normally use for these. I then moved onto eyes where I used my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Eternal Gold and ,using my finger, I sweeped that across the entire lid. I then took My Avon Colourtrend eye shadow,which I've for a number of years and never used, on top of that- again, across the entire lid. I then took My MUA Undressed palette (as always) and selected the two bronze colours (6 and 7). Mixing those together, I applied them to the crease to create a little bit of dimension. Then taking my Barry M Dazzle Dust, I used this as an intense inner corner highlight and  took it onto the the inner third of my lid. Finally I applied this model's own glitter that I got free from the Clothes Show last year and applied that on top of the whole eye look. So, that is quite a lot of eye products but it's worth it to get a great Goddess look! You also get a lot of fall down but I actually feel it adds to the look. You can then finish of with Mascara and Eyeliner of your preference.

(Sorry for the blurriness of this picture!)
Now onto the rest of the face! I look my Sleek bronzer from my face form palette and applied that to anywhere that the sun would normally hit. I then took this VIVO baked bronzer- which is a great dupe for the MAC Mineralized skin finish in Soft and Gentle- which is really cheap and available at Tesco. I applied this to anywhere that I had bronzed so like the tops of my cheek bones, my temples and down the nose. I guess it doesn't matter how much you use because it is a Halloween costume but you definitely don't want to look like a disco ball! If you want to go that step further, you could use something like the Model' Own glitter I used on my eyes and apply that to places where you applied the highlighter.
I have few suggestions for lips as it depends how 'full out' you want to go. If you want to be in full Goddess mode I would take the Maybelline Colour Tattoo as used before and apply this to your lips (make sure you've applied a lip balm before this) and then taking the Model's Own glitter, placing this all over the lips aswell. If  you want a much more subtle look I'd suggest either a nude like MAC's Creme Cup or a brown toned lipstick like the Kate Moss Lipstick in #19.

For hair, you could be very imaginative with this by making a DIYed head crown or even adding gold wash out dye but seeing as this is a last minute idea, I simply went for a middle parting where I took a section of hair from the front on each side and doing a simple plait and clipping them both to the back on each side.


The outfit is fairly simple also. All you need to do is dig out a white dress and sandals that you might of worn last summer and a load of gold jewelry. For jewelry, I'd definitely suggest an arm cuff because I think they work well for this look!
I also found these really cute arrow earrings from a Primark set that I thought would be perfect for this look!

And now we're finished: you're last minute Halloween costume is complete! What are you going as for
Halloween? x
