Las Vegas does Halloween right… the Fetish and Fantasy Ball, the costume contests, all the events that bring out the dark, the weird, the curious. And we are no exception- Halloween makeup is our time to break out of the soft pinks and sweet browns into full-on costume makeup. Bianca loves working with latex to create gruesome looks- like the eerie cut smile of the Black Dahlia. Alana imagined what it would be like if the black-and-white flappers captured in the torn images of the 1920′s photographs suddenly came to life and began walking about. Amelia was equally sinister with her take on the Black Widow- a woman who mourns the loss of her (latest) husband as she fingers the jewels he so conveniently left behind. Of course, we enlisted the help of our buddy Ron Miller to capture our creations, and he nailed it.
We had a blast creating these Halloween makeup Las Vegas looks at one of the most eccentric venues in town- the Artisan. From the ceilinged hung mirrors to the gargoyle fountain, high-backed red velvet chairs and dimly lit chandeliers, the Artisan provided the perfect place for three Las Vegas makeup artists and two hair stylists to flex some creative muscle designing sexy costumes for our three belles, Kitty, Angela, and Erin. The theme we designed the shoot around was “Little Black Dress: Halloween Costume” Taking inspiration from a clothing item nearly every woman owns and feels oh-so-sexy in, and taking the fear out of Halloween- the cheesy, over priced costumes that bow the temporary shelves of pop up shops through the city. With some witty accessories and the perfect hair and makeup, a costume inspiringly unregretful was created.
