I’ve always been fascinated with Japanese culture and most of all the clothing and makeup worn by geishas. So this year I decided to try doing a geisha look, but since I have classes to attend I figure that I would tone it down a little bit. Geishas are known to have beautiful white makeup, eyes that are lined with black eyeliner, red eyeshadow, and tiny red lips. All together the look creates a powerful impact and leaves an unforgettable image for the person.
“Make your heart match the universe and explore the galaxies of your mind…”
I wanted to give myself a challenge – learning the art of blending eye shadows smoothly. The theme for this look was inspired by a class I take in college – “The Universe”. We were learning about millions of distant galaxies, and I couldn’t help but be fascinated by anything interstellar!!
This Halloween I wanted to be something more feminine than all the kick-butt costumes I wore the previous years. I was inspired by the mystical mermaid, a beautiful half-fish half-human creature that steals the hearts of brave sailors 😉
