“Blackbird singing in the dead of night…”

Let me begin by saying that I am not one for Halloween… simply due to the costumes. I don’t love the idea that people use it as an excuse to get scantily clad, nor do I love the idea of being uncomfortable. That being said when my girlfriend said she would be in the cities for Halloween and that I must go out, I had to oblige. Then panic set in; I had no idea what I was going to be. That is until she sent me a photo of a girl in blackbird makeup. I loved it! I thought I think I can do that… but when she offered to do the makeup for me, I was elated! I made wings and she did the rest and how incredible it turned out! Here’s a few pics of her awesome art! (please note–these were taken in the midst and at the end of the night)

I realize when looking at these pictures that there is no way I could have done this…! I have never worn more makeup, looked more bird-like, or piled on the lipstick like I did on Saturday– but I love ever minute of this dress up session.  If you need makeup done whether artistic or traditional, contact me and I will get you in touch with Chelsea herself!!

Lead us out John…

Take these broken wings and learn to fly

All your life you were only waiting for this moment to arise…

Mask(“streets back, oh yeah!”)

The first time… I have done in a mask (since maybe junior high)

When was the last time you saw one of these?

Let me tell you how hard it was to locate a pre-made mask. I am aware that you can make your own at home but I wanted to go “old school” if you will and try and find a green mask or one of the cool clear ones you had to peel off your face in pieces (while stuffing your face with pepperoni pizza at a sleepover–flashback).

Anyway, I had go up and down every aisle at Target in search of a mask. And literally, this was the only one I found. I thought I would give it a whirl. I had heard great things about the “Yes to…” product line and was excited to try.

This product was absolutely awesome. My skin felt light, fresh and delightfully exfoliated! I was so pleased with the outcome that I think I will try other products in the line!! Though next time I think I will invite a few girls for a sleepover and order up some pizza!!
