LINKUPWITHLISA #40 - Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Ransom and I just moved into a new home together. We have been moving and unpacking non-stop. We had to come up with last minute costumes for a Halloween party. I purchased a $5 wig and $3 clown makeup. The rest of our costumes were made from what we already had around the house.

This was my first trial run. I used eyeliner for most of the black detail

I used lipstick to fill in the red around my eyes.

I then colored my lips black with eyeliner and added dead roses to the wig with small black elastic bands. This was a simple Day of the Dead look.

The night of the party we decided to change it up a little. We used the clown makeup to create a skeleton. First I lined my dress with paper towels. Then we applied all of the white and let it dry. We then used the black makeup with our fingers. For more detail we used a paint brush and Q-tips for touch ups.

Thank you so much Mike, Maria, and Michelle for an amazing Halloween Party!!! You really went all out and did such a great job!

Scary bathroom!!!
