So, as you’ll know by now, I absolutely love Halloween.

One of my favorite parts about it is the costumes and, especially, the makeup.

Which brings me to today’s post – Halloween makeup!

There are so many incredible ideas out there and I actually found it difficult to choose which to put on here, but these were some that I thought were really exceptional and unique so I hope you enjoy and definitely check these out on pinterest and show the original posters some love.

[Please note – I got all the images from Pinterest; I don’t own any of them.]

I absolutely love the Millennium series, better known as the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. I know there’s a lot of controversy about it since the films have been released, but I still love the character of Lisbeth Salander. Not because I’m, as some bloggers have put it – “trying to turn a rape victim into a fashion statement” – but rather because I think that Lisbeth Salander is such a great representation of a courageous women. It’s because she is a victim of a lot of things, but she doesn’t become a victim or lie down in defeat ever that people love her so much. I’m not discrediting or discounting the seriousness of rape in any way, but I am saying that I (and likely many others) admire the character of LS because she defies her circumstance. She is more than she appears to be. She is intelligent, prodigal, beautiful (though she doesn’t think so), brave, talented, and honorable. And she does it all without the help of anyone. She is a survivor and I think that’s why a lot of women (and probably men too) admire her so much. Just as an FYI, these fashion picks are based more on the books than the films, though I did put some pieces in that reference them. So, with that being said, this is just a fun post on what I imagine LS fashion to be like and I’ve also used the films as reference. Also, since fall is almost here (thank goodness!), I feel like all the scarves, pants and things are finally appropriate to post on..and because I also love the scarf + leggings combo look a lot! Try not to take it too seriously (for all you critics out there ;-)).
