a week of halloween: wednesday addams makeup

01.jpgHey guys! Did you know that there are only two more days until Halloween? This year, I’ve decided to dress up as  Wednesday Addams.

I’ve secretly always liked Wednesday. From her name that screams originality mixed with her I-don’t-give-a-hoot attitude, to her ability to rock a little black dress and stick with it (hey, it worked for Audrey), to her carefully chosen and annunciated words, and finally, to her fearless attitude. In a weird way, she is the epitome of girlish perfection. How could I not want to be her?

wednesday-addams.jpgThis is what you’ll need for Wednesday’s makeup:

foundation (the lighter, the better)

sponge

power cover-up (again, the lighter the better)

liquid eye-liner (brown or black)

dark brown eyeshadow 

dark grey eyeshadow

mascara (brown or black)

makeup brushes (in various sizes)

03.jpgSteps:

1. Apply foundation with a makeup sponge. Be sure to get full coverage over your face and neck.

05-2.jpg2. Next, use the eyeliner to trace your upper lid. At the corners of your lids, wing the eyeliner upwards for a cat eye effect. (Normally, I would put the eyeshadow first and eyeliner on second, but I wanted the eyeliner to be understated. It’s merely for more definition of the eye since Wednesday’s are quite beautiful and large.)

06.jpg3. Apply the dark brown eyeshadow to your top lid. Once it is successfully covered, take the grey eyeshadow and add it to the creases of your lids.

07.jpg4. Now apply the same grey eyeshadow to the underside of your eyes.

5. Take a large makeup brush and lightly dust cover-up over your entire face. Focus especially under the eye where you may have experienced fall out from the eyeshadow.

08.jpg6. The last step is to fill in and darken your eyebrows. I simply used the same dark brown eyeshadow for mine. Once they look full, use the foundation and sponge to wipe away any imperfections. After that, put a scowl on your face and get ready to terrorize any poor soul who comes your way!

      • Sort of, I wore a secret Halloween dress to work, it looked like a normal black dress but it had a jack o lantern face on the front. We just stayed in and watched/fell asleep to movies though, it had been a long week.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift. My little lovebug doesn't always want me for naps lately, but when she does, it makes me feel warm, loved, and needed. Also, look at her hand tucked inside of my shirt. I'm melting.
