Happy Halloween everyone! For those who are in America and Canada I'm sure that Halloween is quite a big deal as well as a tradition and fun occasion for families! I only knew about this celebration growing up because I had many American teachers at the International Schools I attended. Halloween isn't anywhere as relevant in Asia in general and if you go knocking on people's door for candy probably 9/10 people will not have any treats to give to trick-o-treaters!
Halloween and all the knick knacks that go with it such as costumes, accessories, themed treats and events are now much more common in Asia but recently I'm most impressed by the gals on youtube who do amazingly artistic make up looks for the occasion! I was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra look and decided to go just go all out and create my version of a Cleopatra look!
Continue below for my make up look!
|Halloween Cleopatra inspired make up look! Blue eyes, gold pop and dramatic eyeliner!|

|Halloween Cleopatra inspired make up look! Love how this shot shows my complete look off very well! A slight contouring on my nose adds definition and it's a must to have the brows visible for this look!|
|Halloween Cleopatra inspired make up look! Close up, on my cheek was a warm glowing neutral shade with a good amount of a golden highlight on my cheekbones! I wish I had fuller lashes for this look but any dramatic plush pair works!|
|Halloween Cleopatra inspired make up look! Just trying out poses to show off my look! I unfortunately had no gold jewelry to accessorize with but do have this gold leaf top!|
|Halloween Cleopatra inspired make up look! My uber juicy duck lips! I've been surprised recently with people asking me how I get my lips looking like this! They just do if I purse them together!|
|A gorgeous bag of halloween treats I've assembled for my boyfriend's 10 year old brother! I picked up all the goodies are various supermarkets and a specialty candy shop which got me started!|
|Halloween Cleopatra inspired make up look! One of my favorite shots of this look! If only I had a longer and fuller pair of lashes and some gold jewelry!|
That's all for my halloween post this year! I believe the last two years or so I haven't down anything halloween related so I'm glad to get at least one in this year! I'll be having one more look that I'm doing for the day itself when I join my boyfriends' family to go out for the night so I'll be posting that look in the near future!
