Got places to go and no costume? I’ve been there more than once!

To go to a few festivites tonight and hand out treats I decided to attempt Poison Ivy makeup.

This is what I’ll be wearing. Jk. Probably a green dress if I can conjure it up. A green bodysuit works too. Image from daxchristopheronline.ccom

Surprisingly, it wasn’t as hard as I had thought it’d be. I’m getting Poison Ivy Vibes for sure, though I didn’t have time to get as nice a green dress as I would’ve liked. You have to be resourceful sometimes though when you have a million other things to do other than plan for your costume. To start off, I did my eyes.

I used my trusty Color Icon palette by Wet n Wild in Comfort Zone. I know I’ve used it a million times in my posts but hey, it works.

I don’t think this palette really could ever get old for me:

I began by priming my eyes with concealer as usual, and then dusting them with a bone matte shade. I then used Elf’s bronzer in the Aqua Beauty Blush & Bronzer duo as my transition shade. I ran that all through the crease and outer corner. I love how this product blends. It’s the perfect transition shade for almost any look too.

My fave new bronzer & transition shade. The blush is awesome too. Can’t get enough of this duo. 6.00 on elf.com, CVS, Target, etc 

I used the dark green definer shade in the Comfort Zone palette in the crease and then used the lightest green shade allover the lid.

I further defined the crease with the teal duochrome color and created an extended cat eye and wing. I then went back and used the bronzer to blend all the shades together.

I added some ivy leaves in random places because I was feeling artsy using Wet n Wild’s Fantasy Makers palette in Mesmerizing Mermaid. They come in a wide variety of color combinations as shown below. I then added shimmer, highlights, and definition to the leaves with the green eye shadows. 

Poison Ivy doesn’t have these, but go ahead and be as creative as you want! I also added glitter allover the lid. I used Wet n Wild’s Color Icon glitter single in Brass. For lipstick I used Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipstick in Plan 9, below.

That’s it! Anyone can do Halloween makeup with a few good tools in hand an some inspiration. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’re having (or had, depending on when you read this) a happy, safe, and treat-filled Halloween!
