As the weather cools down and I face the reality that Summer will soon be at its end, I have found myself daydreaming of Halloween. I love getting dressed up for Halloween, but often come up with so many ideas, only to settle on the least creative (and whatever happens to be easiest when the day arrives).
To prevent this from happening again, I did the sensible thing and picked up a palette of theatre shadows from Ben Nye.
The Lumiere Grande Colour Palette comes with twelve refillable pans--all of which are richly pigmented and buttery smooth. No, they aren't your everyday neutrals, but each are wearable in their own respective (and bright) way. These shades contain a luminous shimmer, but there are many (of which can be purchased separately and popped into the palette) that are matte. They all feel very lightweight on the skin, although the Azalea and Cosmic Blue shades have the most staying power. This is an item that would be excellent for a kit--especially for someone who does a bit of creative work. At its $60 price point, the value is unbeatable (the brush is included).
I can appreciate the labeling, in that each shadow has its own name. For some reason, a shadow without a name pushes me to lose a lot of respect for the poor thing
Thanks to the tin casing, I can now feel like a real Bob Ross while holding it at my side.
So, I've had costume recommendations for Neytiri and a panda...what do you think I should be?
Have you given any thought to Halloween, or an outfit for a costume party? What sorts of themes do you tend to go for?
