Older Girl Beauty


Okay, I think I have made it clear that I may not have the best skills when it comes to makeup application or hair styling. However, it appears that I *can* put out a good zombie (*with help from a little tutorial, of course).

Nate decided that this year he wanted to be a zombie, I figured, “Surely, I can do that” and off we went to get supplies. We went to the local Goodwill and picked up a shirt, t-shirt and tie for $4.85. Score! Then went to Walmart and got a little $1.99 Halloween makeup kit & $1.99 white hairspray. Lastly, we went to a Halloween superstore & got fake blood and “Bloody Scab” for $6 – Total $15ish. Not too bad, considering how much some of those prepackaged costumes cost nowadays. *cough*$40*cough*

So, after negotiating that he could go trick or treating with his friends without me, I could take pictures of his transformation, we were ready to start playing.

My fresh faced kiddo pre-zombification.

After we sponged him white, I set it with some Three Custom Translucent Loose Powder so it wouldn’t melt away. It pained me, but, dang I couldn’t find anything else to use. He *so* didn’t appreciate my sacrifice.

I tapped on some black cream to give him the hollowed out eyes look. He even directed me at one point, “You need more over here”.

While his “scabs” were drying on his face, we went outside and sprayed his tousled, gelled hair white. Looking at himself, he said, “I look like the guy on “America’s Next Top Model, only with darker eyes”. Oh, please, Jay Manuel only *wishes* he looks as good as Nate. (*Biased, table of 1).

After blackening the scabs a bit, we added on the fake blood and let it drip drip down.

After he put on his outfit and we dripped it with blood, too, he was ready to go out into the night begging for sweet treats.

Overall, I was pretty please with what I pulled off, but the real prize is the fact that Nate declared it “Awesome!” and he had a great night. It can’t get much better than that. :)
