Monterey Zombie Walk 2011

Two posts in one week?!?  You're kidding right!!  I know it's amazing, but I have more goodies to share with you guys!!  Today I had this AWESOMELY fun opportunity to volunteer as a makeup artist with the Monterey Zombie Walk.  I did makeup on a few people, but only had my phone to snap a couple pictures, so they don't do it too much justice but you can still get the picture!

This is the makeup I did really quickly on myself after work, before I headed to the zombie walk location!

Here are a few of the looks I did on the people who came out to have their makeup done before the zombie walk and fest.  I really haven't done too much special effects makeup, only a couple wanted special effects, and the rest wanted just basic zombie makeup.  It was really fun and a great experience, I haven't done anything like it before, and it was great.

Hey guys, how is everyone?  So halloween is basically here, and it is probably my favorite holiday.  I love decorating, dressing up, fall, pumpkins, EVERYTHING about halloween is amazing!  It is also my husbands favorite holiday, and this year I decided to have a party for his birthday, my daughters birthday, and halloween all combined into one.  So I had to do some epic makeup for the party on my family, here is the looks I came up with.  I got some of my inspiration from photos online, and made them my own.  I recently purchased the Basic and Pastel Mehron pallets so most of the looks are done using those pallets.  I'm not sure how much I like the Mehron pallets, and think for the most party I prefer the cheaper face paint I bought from Michaels.

My daughter Skye was Daphne from Scooby Doo for halloween, so I just gave her some basic face paint/makeup to go with the theme of Daphne's clothes coloring.

These are the looks I did on my family and myself for our halloween party.   

I also did a few other halloween inspired looks on my family over the past couple weeks, so I will post those for you to see as well.

Hope you enjoyed my halloween looks so far, there will probably be more to come as halloween isn't over yet!
