Hey Dolls! This Monster High makeup tutorial is for little girls. Yay! My beautiful daughter, Chibi Kitsch, will be the smart and gorgeous Lagoona Blue this Halloween. For her look, I omitted foundation, powder, eyeliner and mascara. I just think that’s too much for a 9 year old to wear, not to mention the difficulty of taking it all off. You can complete this look in 5 minutes with inexpensive alternatives to what I used.

Grunge is back, and I’m loving it! That tough girl that doesn’t give a f*** about looking pretty for boys can finally break out of her cage for this fall’s hottest trend. To create a grunge look, use matte or demi-matte finish products. Think of shimmer and glitter to be the anti-grunge makeup. The only “dew” on your skin should be sweat from partying too hard! In my Grunge Makeup Tutorial video, I’ll show you how to create scary beautiful eye makeup featuring some of my favorite dark colors.

Remember when the cool, special makeup colors had shimmer, and matte color was the normal boring stuff? Nowadays it’s the opposite. Of course shimmer and glitter and sparkle are everywhere! The girls love it! Supply and demand, right? I’d like to present a challenge to all you millennium kids: leave the shimmer behind. Don’t get me wrong, I love shimmer too, but there comes a time for change. I personally think matte makeup is more sophisticated and does a better job at defining facial features. Maybe it’s my inner goth, but deep merlot lips and black shadowed eyes exude seductive, mysterious and inviting. My softer side thinks matte neutrals are perfect for achieving a romantic, vintage look. The best brands I’ve seen for matte makeup are Make Up For Ever and M.A.C. Matte will probably be a new trend this fall, so keep a look out for limited edition matte makeup from your favorite brands.
Carbon (MAC, $14.50) – the blackest black. I also use this as an eyeliner.
