Gypsy Halloween Makeup Idea!

Hey everybody! As we all know Halloween (one of my favorite holidays) is coming up! My birthday just so happens to be a week after Halloween and we are going for a gypsy/carnival style theme for my party, so I decided to share my gypsy look with you! Below are some pics! I will be back soon to post how I did my make-up and the products used if you are interested. :)

Ok, so to start off, I put on my e.l.f. tinted moisturizer (in the shade Nude) and then dusted my entire face with NYC's Bronzing Face Powder in 720A Sunny. Next, I contoured with the bronzer in Elf's Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder compact and used the blush on the apples of my cheeks as well. 

For the eyes, first I used the deepest gold in my Revlon creme shadow palette in "Precious Metals" as a base.   My lid, crease, and brow bone color all came from the same NYX eye shadow trio. "Golden" went on the lid, "Rust" (also a dupe for MAC's "Cranberry") went into the crease and also was used in the outer V, and "Walnut Bronze" went underneath the eyebrow on the brow bone. Next, I took my NYX Glitter Cream Palette in "Bronze Goddess" and applied the 4th shade to the right on my lid over "Golden." (Be careful not to get the glitter in the crease! Keep it on the lid only or you will have some major creasing! And we don't want that. Eew.) For liner, I just put ULTA's basic automatic eyeliner in black/brown on the waterline and upper lash line. For mascara, I used Rimmel's Glam Eyes Mascara in Black. You can choose to define your brows if you want. A cheap way is NYC's Kohl Brow Pencils. I believe they are about 99 cents at Wal-Mart.

I simply just put on a coat of Rimmel's Stay Glossy Lip Gloss in Seductive. Easy enough right? Haha :)

My costume just came from a local Halloween Boutique but you can make your own! You can use almost any piece of fabric for a head wrap. Just remember to wear lots and lots of bangles! :)
