This year for Halloween, I did not make my costume or do any DIY-ing at all as I usually would. Unfortunately, things have been going rather screwy at my job so I wasn't sure if I would be able to have a day off that I could go out for Halloween. I had to miss my friend's Halloween party but there was another event the next weekend so I went to that. I went as a Vulcan so I went for an almost completely neutral look. I attempted to do some contouring and highlighting to make my face look a bit different; I don't really know how to do that very well but it turned out ok. I wanted to have just a little bit of colour as I didn't want to be too washed out so I used some blue eyelashes and a bit of metallic blue liner. Also, a lot of people asked me how I covered up my natural eyebrows so well. The answer is, I DIDN'T. I waxed them off except for the inner parts. I have waxed them off before and they actually grow back pretty quickly!
