So for the pre-Halloween party at PHD, I decided to a warrior from the underworld. I think it came out great! I was so excited to play with those swords... That was the best part. To be honest, it didn't turn out as how I wanted to be. I slacked a bit on this one. My makeup turned out great. I think it was my outfit it didn't scream out that much for me. Originally, I was going to buy this stunning bodysuit from Urban Outfitters and wear them with those pants, but they didn't end up having my size in any store next to me. I also bought these makeup prosthetics that looked super cool. It was a bloody scar that I was going to apply on my face (GROSS, I know) but it would've looked awesome. However, I completely forgot to buy Spirit Gum, which is a quick drying solution of gum which you can apply on the prosthetic for it to stick on your face or body. So that didn't work out either! Moving on, we arrive at the party and the bouncer tells me that I have to check in my swords. I was so pissed! What am I without those swords? Nothing. It didn't make sense for me to be walking around without them. No one would understand my costume. It was a safety hazard though so I had to let go of them. Yes, I had to check in my swords. The night went well, and we had fun. Until we went home and I realized how am I going to take off these lenses?! I had inserted fake freakishly long nails, and there was no way I was able to pull them out. It was a struggle. The lenses came off in the end, but the struggle was so real. So I would recommend either the lenses or the nails. Not both. Below are some makeup tips if you ever want to become a warrior from the underworld.
Step 1: Insert freakishly looking lenses. I chose blue but it really could be any bright color.
Step 2: Apply a smoky eye look with some contouring. I added some gold metallic powder on my cheeks to enhance the supernatural look.
Step 3: Apply makeup prosthetics if you can. They would create a bloody look.

So, Halloween night was unexpected. I was supposed to go to the parade, a haunted house and just sit at home and watch scary movies while eating so much candy! But I ended up going to a party and not just any party, it was Heidi Klum's Halloween Party, the biggest event of the night. I was checking my phone during my work break, and I find my friend texting me that we're attending. I got excited! I got back home at ten and showered, got my makeup done and got dressed in two hours. That's a major record for me. Especially that I was applying so many leopard looking spots on my face. Two hours Later, I was done. I ended up loving this costume. The cat ears I got were a bit too pointy for a leopard, but everyone still got the point. The party had many spooky decorations on the wall, the music was great for Halloween, and the costumes were pretty unique. The celebrities that attended were Heidi Klum (obviously), Jennifer Lopez, Gigi Hadid and Ashanti. We couldn't spot them because their costumes were that good. Heidi Klum was Jessica the Rabbit and she went all out (not surprised), Jennifer Lopez was a skeleton, Ashanti was a smurf and Gigi Hadid was Sandy from Grease. Gigi's costume was on point. She looked exactly like Sandy. We had such a fun and crazy night. It was a night to remember. Below are some makeup tips on how to create this leopard look.
Step 1: Insert blue lenses.
Step 2: Take a liquid eyeliner, I recommend Sephora liquid eyeliner since the brush is super thin. Apply spots around half of the face, changing the proportion of each spot to add a realistic look.
Step 3: Add a cat eye wing. Apply some silver eye shadow around the eye to highlight them.
Step 4: Apply a pinkish reddish lipstick. You can go for any color really.
