Etsy Treasury- Look Up More

Hello World,

I have always had a slight obsession with the night sky. When I was younger I actually wanted to be an astronomer. Constellations, nebulas, moons, planets, galaxies- you name it, I think they are all breathtaking. Hence, why I felt it was necessary to make my latest Etsy Treasury centered around them:

“We’ll be counting stars” Halloween Makeup

Hello World,

I love Halloween. The candy, decorations, costumes, and non-traditional makeup is completely acceptable. For my costumes, I like to focus more on my face, and have my clothes being a secondary focus. I also live in Idaho, so I usually freeze if I don’t wear many layers on Halloween.

Below is a Halloween makeup idea inspired by the Milky Way Galaxy and “Counting Stars” by OneRepublic.

For this look, I used all drug store eyeshadows, E.L.F. glitter eyeliner, Wet ‘n Wild liquid white eyeliner, and Kiss lashes.

I originally was only going to do half my face, but I got a little blend happy and kept expanding the galaxy onto the other side of my face.

What are you going to be for Halloween?

PS- My hair is not as brassy as it appears in these photos. Promise. I just forgot to adjust my white balance for indoor lighting.
