Beautiful: Laughter is beautiful. I believe there is something about laughter that brings out a person's inner beauty. When Angela and Mike asked me to help them with their Halloween costumes this year, I quickly agreed. I knew it would be a night of pure laughter and fun! When I told them my idea was to transform them into Gotye and Kimbra from the Somebody That I Used to Know music video, they both looked at each other and started laughing! Then, immediately said yes. I knew it would be a perfect fit!
Gorgeous: Angela and Mike are living proof of my belief that inner beauty is a direct reflection of outer beauty. Look at them! They are two of the most sweet, caring, and hilarious people I know and it shows on the outside. I am so lucky to have them in my life to remind me to laugh more. As I often do when I'm with them.
Makeup: Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays! It is so fun to transform into someone else for one night. I wanted to create the Gotye and Kimbra Somebody That I Used to Know look for Mike and Angela using real makeup. To create the artwork inspired colors for their faces and bodies I used Make Up For Ever 12 Flash Color Case. It's an amazing palette. You can create any color by mixing base shades. True makeup artistry! Here is how-to create your special look with your favorite muse this Halloween!

Do Something Lovely: This Halloween I hope that you are in the lovely presence of family, friends, or your special muse. After all the Halloween candy has been given out and the pumpkins have made their Halloween destiny, take some time to unwind and laugh. Perhaps this is the perfect opportunity to look at old photos of Halloween costumes past and laugh!
Special thanks to Angela and Mike for agreeing to go with my idea of Gotye and Kimbra and allowing me to turn their kitchen into my own private makeup studio for a few hours. You guys are the best and I love you to pieces! Thanks for the laughs!
