Halloween Eye Spy & The Nail Files

Physician's Formula Mineral Mascara on top and bottom lashes

A tip: For any job, you need the right tools. For makeup, you need at least: 2 brushes for eyeshadow (one for applying, one for blending), a flat brush for applying eyeshadow-as-eyeliner, a brush for blush, a brush for contouring/bronzer, and a brush for foundation (if you use powder foundation). Plus a concealer brush, if you use concealer. All have different edges and angles for optimum application. But ALL need to be cleaned 1-4 times/month!

I wanted to do something Halloween and fun, and not too gruesome.
Zoya "Creamy", Zoya "Snow White", and Sally Girl "Mango Tango"

Step 1. Paint nails white (1-2 coats)

Step 2. Paint a strip of orange across the middle of each nail.

Step 3. Paint a strip of yellow across tips of each nail.

Step 4. Freehand (or draw boundaries first with a Sharpie and then use polish) at an angle with any black or neutral polish, to create Candy Corn shape.

Step 5. Have a glass of red wine and admire the fact that your nails look reasonably okay.

Happy Haunting, Lovelies!
