Halloween's a Comin'!

We are six days into my favorite month of the year! It’s autumn, and it’s Halloween season! It’s time to see all the gore and all the makeup taken up many notches. Even if you are not a professional artist, that doesn’t mean you can’t take part in all the fun!

I have never really dived too far into the depths of gorey makeup and special effects. I have done a few photoshoots here and there, and I’ve played around a bit. I love it, but I prefer to make people feel more beautiful than more scary! I see so many artists out there that have insane amounts of talent when it comes to true makeup effects. It is incredibly intimidating yet also wonderfully inpsiring. People can do a lot with the more they have available to them, however anyone can do something with whatever they have.

Halloween does not have to be all about horror and gore for everyone! For me, it’s another time to enjoy the extreme arts and talents that some don’t express otherwise. It’s about the scare and about the excitement of being scared. It’s about exploring what you haven’t done before, and it’s about expanding and learning a new style. Most of all, it’s about having fun with what you are working on. Enjoy every part of it!

What are you planning on being for Halloween? Do you always dress up? How does makeup play into your outfit? I want to know all about your plans, and I cannot wait to share more of mine!
