Halloween Costume Ideas/Tutorials

For the longest time I've wanted to create the 'Chola' look but never had the time until now. I am a believer that certain makeup techniques may have originated from this interesting look. Although I'm not a big fan of this type of makeup look, (outdated lips, over-emphasized eyes and brows) I do appreciate the drama in the eyes and the confidence in these women that wear the look today.

'Chola with the Dark Lips'

First look is sharp eyeshadow with dark lips! Put on your foundation, here I used Neutrogena's healthy skin makeup. Create a high arch in the brows, if your brows don't have a high arch that's ok, just darken them to the max! Mainly any black eyeshadow will do for the eyes, drawn on with a pencil brush, prime with NYX Milk or any white cream eyeshadow....

What I used: eyeliner on the lower lashline is Urban Decay in Zero and upper lashline is Maybelline Line Stiletto. Blush is Aziza in Desert. Lips lined with Urban Decay in Whiskey, lipstick is MAC Diva.

To complete the look you could add on large falsies (fake eyelashes) or instead of dark red lips use all black.

Another idea for Chola eyebrows, pencil thin this time!

'The Natural Looking Chola'

For this look I just mainly swept a deep purple eyeshadow on the lid and on the outer crease. I used NYX Milk to line my upper lashline. Blended out the purple using the beige color in the WnW (Wet n Wild) I love Matte palette. I did my brows normal here. I wanted to create a sharp contour so I used MAC eyeshadow in Antiqued.

What I used: Foundation is Neutrogena's healthy skin compact makeup, Urban Decay eyeliner 24/7 in Zero, WnW I love Matte palette for purple, beige, and white as highlight, Aziza blush, lips lined with Urban Decay eyeliner 24/7 in Whiskey, MAC lipstick in Creme d Nude, mascara Covergirl lash perfection

Have a great and safe Halloween!
