FOTD: Becoming Cleopatra

10/30/2012

If there’s one woman in history I want to be or think I was her in my past lifetime that would be Cleopatra.  Her fondness of cats, her wit and beauty and charm is something I connect with (not that I’m bragging lol!).  Since I learned about her in my grade school days when Liz Taylor’s Cleopatr movies were shown on TV in black and white during Holy Week break I never cease or get tired of watching it.  I think I have watched it all, all of the series and I know the story like the back of my hand.

For this Halloween, there was this big urge for me to be Cleopatra and that pyramid and labyrinth “spooky” exhibit at SM Fairview this week just gave me urge to becoming Cleopatra and so I did.

With complete head dress from my sister  and my Greek Inspired dress given to me by Ms. Michi Calica-Sotto, gold arm bands and gladiator shoes, I’m perfect to go trick or tricking or go party the night away.

Halloween Look: Becoming Cleopatra

Highlights: Emphasis on the eyes with dark eyeliner and blue eye shadow.

Becoming Cleopatra

How to do it:
Face: For a flawless smooth face I use Lancome Teint Miracle #05 and Physicians Formula Talc-Free Mineral Wear Mineral Cream Concealer on my problem spots.
Eyes: I used the K-Palette Lasting 2Way Eyebrow in Brown to draw the borders of my eyebrows and then filled it up with the Estee Lauder Stay-in-Pace Eye Pencil Onyx and brushed it with an eyebrow brush to soften the lines. The I used the Penshoppe Aqualiner Celeste all over my eyelids as eye makeup base. Then applied L.A. Colors EP Devious Blue all over my eyelids then blend with Silver white from the same palette. Using the Nature Republic So Big Liquid Eyeliner in black I lined my entire eyes two coats heavier to create that Egyptian look/impact . Create an exaggerated cats eye line all the way up to the temple. Using the K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner in Black I made the lines more cleaner and clearer. To highlight my eyelashes I use Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascarra in Blackest Black.
Cheeks: Sweep some blush below the cheekbones up to the temples for contour I used the Fanny Serrano Powder Blush in Cinnamon Stick
Lips: I used the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Charm then topped it off with L’Oreal Parish Glam Shine 6H in Coral Sherbet for a nude but glossy effect
