A Jersey Shore Halloween

So this year for Halloween I decided to just conform and be the infamous Snooki from “Jersey Shore.”  Yes, I know it was the most popular costume this year but people, I don’t buy costumes in a bag, ok?  100% real, honest effort went into my Snooki costume and I have to admit, it was a pretty big hit among the West Hollywood crowd (and at the West Hollywood Halloween Block Party).  I mean, I think the test of a good costume is when people ask to take pictures with you…man, maybe I should panhandle down on Hollywood Blvd. with the randoms dressed as Michael Jackson and Spiderman, no?  We’ll see.

And now…for the makeup

To get that true “Jersey Shore” glow is no easy feat for a pale whitey like myself.  I started by applying my go-to self-tanner, XenTan followed by Sally Hansen’s Salon Airbrush Legs in “Deep Glow,” aka the darkest shade they make.  I have to say, I was a bit nervous about this product because it was either going to make or break my Snooki look.  Well I say it MADE it.  As I sprayed on the makeup, it was quite shocking to see how dark it was but being that I was trying to be the “Princess of Poughkeepsie,” it was working for me.  I also didn’t melt any off through out the night and not gonna lie…I’m definitely going to pick up a bottle of this (in a MUCH lighter shade) to spray on the next time I have to go to a wedding or any other big event.  It’s good stuff and came right off in the shower with just a little water and shower gel.

As for my face, I dusted a little of Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer onto my face for that extra tan since this bronzer is normally waaay too dark for my natural skin color.  For my eyes, I tried out the Hard Candy Eye Tattoos I’d been saving for just the right night- and they’re purple leopard print to match my bra.  My lipstick is Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in “Indluge.”
