I’m not going to lie, Halloween has gotten to be fun again since having my daughter. She’s the perfect excuse to splurge on a costume (we have to be coordinated, right?) and really have fun with my makeup. I get to go out and get candy instead of sitting at home handing out, ‘making sure’ my daughters candy is tasty and delicious before she gets her share. This year is no different, tonight filled with tons of festivities. Not only does my makeup have to look good, it has to stay that way.
Since she’s a big Doc McStuffins fan¸ I’m going as my little girl’s nurse. I wanted a fun and super girly makeup look but wasn’t exactly sure where to start. So when the folks from Q-Tips reached out to me with their own box of tips, tricks and treats, this girl was totally onboard, not sure what to expect. When my magic box arrived, not only did it have beauty goodies for Halloween night and beyond (reviews to come!) I had my own supply of Q-tips Cotton Swabs and Precision Tips as well as a handy booklet with great costume makeup ideas.
I took a cue from their evil queen tutorial and went for some color blocking eye makeup action – using nothing but Q-tips.
The cotton swabs are perfect for sweeping color across the lids, picking up the right amount of shadow. The wide tip helped me spread on the color smoothly and evenly. All I needed was one tip, one end for the pink and the other end for the blue.
The Precision tips were like mini eyeliner brushes with a sharp tip that allowed me to line my eyes for a smokey look sans smudging.
A coat of mascara, some serious pink blush and lipstick and this sassy nurse is good to go!
