Happy (Belated) Halloween! My "Office Goth Girl" Makeup

I have had an extremely busy October! As such I really didn't get much of a chance to plan a Halloween costume. This was the first year that my place of employment has ever said "dress up for Halloween". In the past they've done silly things like "Dress from you country of origin" in an effort not to insult people (which I found insulting). I guess they finally realized that seeing the people you work with dress up silly is sort of fun.

Anyway, my last minute decision: Go Goth... Lite (it is still work)

I haven't worn that collar since I was 21. I was a little surprised that I could find it. I was even more surprised that my husband knew exactly where it was stashed.

Word of caution on the gooey black lips - if you have long hair like mine, pull it back! My hair kept getting in my lipstick then wiping across my face creating thin black lines. You can see them if you look closely.

The Breakdown

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • MAC Your Ladyship Pigment (LE) - all over lid
  • MAC In Living Pink Eyeshadow (LE) - Crease
  • MAC Grease Paint Stick in Black (LE) - lower lash line
  • MAC Young Punk Mineralize Eye Shadow (LE) - used wet as upper liner
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Mineralized SkinFinish Natural in Light
  • MAC Strada Blush (Discontinued)
  • MAC Angel Blush (Discontinued)
  • MAC Grease Paint Stick in Black (LE) - used as liner (I have no idea if this is an approved use, so don't follow my example)
  • MAC Black Knight Lipstick (LE) - outer lip area
  • MAC Cyber Lipstick - Inner lip area
  • MAC Clear Lipglass - all over lips
I know, it's not very involved. But it was last minute. Not too terrible for 5 minutes before going out the door in my book.
