Halloween Makeup Options

Happy Halloween Everyone!!!

Check out the video on Halloween makeup ideas and fun nail polishes.

I don't have major Halloweenie plans like I usually do this year. With my work and class schedule being so packed I think I'll spend the night in, munching on candy and sipping on hot apple cider. :) I AM very excited about how my roomie and my pumpkins and decorations came out. I'll probably dress up as a Baltimore Oriole baseball player tonight on the off chance we get Trick-or-Treaters at our apartment. Back to the makeup!

Hi all! Welcome to Make (it) Up as You Go! This is just a fun experiment of mine wherein I will discuss cosmetic products and give tutorials. I will mainly focus on affordable products being that I am not the most wealthy individual, but I am not limiting the blog to just that. Check out the welcome video and I'll have more posts to come!

Some cosmetic lines I will focus on include: Avon, Essence, Cover Girl, Mary Kay, Mark, NYC, NYX, Revlon, EcoTools, Rimmel, Wet and Wild, L.A. Colors, L'Oreal and Elf

I am an Avon Independent Sales Representative, so any Avon products I review may be purchased at the following link:
