Halloween Your Halloween Photos!

Last night, I asked you to share your Halloween photos. Boy, you ladies act fast!

Spoiled Pretty reader, Sharon (above), was a porcelain doll for Halloween. To create the look, she used:

Smasbox primer
MAC Studio Sculpt foundation in NC15
L’Oreal Color Juice Stick in Island Punch
Covergirl LashBlast Length mascara in Very Black (On top of CVS false lashes)
Maybelline Superstay 24 HR concealer in Ivory
Make Up For Ever Flash Color Pot in Fuschia 5

I even had people sending me photos on Twitter. @rockinhair7 blew my mind with her Edward Scissorhands look.

Can you even get over this “unzipped” look from Spoiled Pretty reader, Lee? She threw this makeup together in one hour, using products purchased at Hot Topic and Target. “The shiny gore bit is made out of red pigment mixed with clear lip gloss,” she says. “But hey, Halloween is for being creative!”

Thanks for all the great photos, everyone!

Allure Magazine: If I Could Turn Back Time

twins1 Allure Magazine: If I Could Turn Back Time The October 2009 issue of Allure has a very interesting article about our own ability to turn back the clock. The story focuses on a study of 186 identical twins, and how lifestyle choices (weight, alcohol, marital status, smoking, sun exposure) can cause two people with the same DNA to look dramatically different.

Did you know that the longer a woman takes birth control pills or hormone-replacement therapy, and the higher the dose, the more likely she is to look younger? Or that taking antidepressants is generally associated with an older appearance?
