Egyptian Queen Halloween Makeup

The Pumpkins are carved, the house is decorated and I'm trying not to eat all the candy before the tick-or-treaters arrive. Tonight I'm attending the NYX Cosmetics Halloween Party so I've created a simple yet dramatic Egyptian Queen look that I will also be wearing to a couple other ghoulish events.

Coincidentally, “Erica” means eternal ruler and I’ve been captivated by Ancient Egypt since grade 5. Maybe one day I will visit the pyramids and explore the museums in Cairo but for now I’ll settle for cocktails, delicious food and a spook-tacular night with the're allowed to be corny on Halloween.

I found the accessories for this theme at Party City and it is quite easy to make your own costume. The beaded necklace inspired my color choice and bold eyeliner is a must when channeling your inner goddess.

Since my hair is long and black I don't need a wig but a headband or hair jewelry adds the perfect finishing touch.

If you’d like to recreate this look I've listed the products and shades below. The great thing about Halloween makeup is that there is no right or wrong. Just have fun and unleash your inner artist.
