Spider Queen Look for Halloween




Here's a creative design I came up with surrounding spiders, perfect for a Halloween look! I'll call this my Spider Queen Black Widow look. I had this in mind for weeks and even ordered the spiderweb false lashes especially for it in advance, but they ended up being the biggest disappointment - just way too fragile and not dramatic enough for my taste. Nonetheless I love how this turned out! I hope you do too :)

  13. Spiders terrify me, especially since I had surgery because of a bite.
    That said, I really love your left eye in this look, the curve and how everything is going upward. Gorgeous purple :)

  19. I think this is one of the best look you've ever done (at least out of the ones I've seen). The eyes, the lips(loooove), the earrings, the top. Really AWESOME. Hope you do a tutorial on it.

  24. i could tell just from the pictures that those were spiderweb lashes, and i really like them. i plan to use this look, with purple and black (no blue in mine) for Halloween. I'm going to be in Vegas so I needed something that will show my Halloween spirit, but also be appropriate enough that I can still dress really nice :) Thanks for such an awesome idea!
