Halloween series: GEISHA (modern version)

It's hard to blog everyday if you don't already have something written ahead. And I'm not in the mood for writing something long and informative today, so I decided to do another Halloween post. We are October 15th already, Halloween is around the corner basically, I need to speed up everything :).

Here is my Geisha look, but it's not really a traditional one, it has more of a modern feel to it. Traditional look is just white face and some red on the outer corners of the eyes, black or red eyebrows and tiny lips.
Here is my interpretation:

I used NYX concealer in lightest shade to hide any imperfections. I applied white Barry M foundation all over my face and set it with regular baby powder.


For eyes I used red eyeshadows, pink and the lightest shadow (CoastalScents 88 eyeshadow palette) to blend everything. Also, I used Elf blush in Pink passion.
For lining my eyes and for the eyebrows I used black eyeliner from Avon.
I cut falsies in half and applied them just on the outer corner to elongate my eyes a little bit and make them more Asian looking.

I can't remember which lip pencil and lipstick I used, I think it was Oriflame lip pencil and Revlon matte lipstick.
I bought this folding fan on eBay last year, and I think this rose came with cocktail when I was in Spain :)

I don't have a kimono, but this shirt is kinda Asian inspired, I bought it last year at Ann Christine. 
I put on regular black leggings and VJ style booties:


I changed my hair part to cover my undercut and used bobby pins to secure them. I laso teased my crown area (I would do a bun, but my hair is short). Et voila, I became a blond Geisha! :D

Four more looks to go! 
Which one is your favourite so far? :) How do you like this one? 

See, I can do pretty "normal" ones too. haha

Konnichiwa!
