I hate dressing up for Halloween because if I can’t look fashionable, I don’t want to have any part of it and most “fun” costumes aren’t exactly fashionable. My daughter is less inhibited than I am when it comes to that, thank goodness. She’s had some pretty kick-ass costumes over the years. One she she dressed up as Fiona from Shrek and I had a blast doing her makeup for that!
Last year I dressed up at Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
My husband had fun too. It was the first time we dressed up for Halloween as a couple, so it was cool!
If that’s not your taste, don’t worry. I found a costume that is both fun, silly AND great opportunity to cool makeup!
