I LOVE HALLOWEEN SO MUCH! Dressing up is so fun & prepping your house for Trick or Treat-ers or a fun gathering with friends. But there is a stigma out there that the older you get, the less fun it is (meaning 20s & 30s or pre-kids). I say that’s garbage! It’s fun to let loose & play dress up. Whether it’s for an office party or a neighborhood block party, not all adult costumes have to be “adult” if you know what I mean. Case in point, Princess Leia. Not sexy Princess Leia, just good, old, classic, bad-ass Princess Leia. Breann’s got the full details… – xoxo, LK
Whether you like to admit it or not, everyone likes Star Wars a little bit. We’re each a bit nerdy and can’t help but get a little excited when that theme music begins to play. Perhaps one of the most recognizable brands in the world, Star Wars themed costumes have always played a huge role in our culture. Maybe it’s the buns, bikini scene, or her love of Han Solo that made Princess Leia such a beloved character. Either way, her hair and simple makeup create one of the easiest and most adored Halloween costumes. You’re sure to be the talk of the party, and you’ll be so happy that it took you less than 15 minutes to get ready!
To start with makeup, apply a concealer under your eyes to brighten them up, then sweep a peachy pink blush across your cheeks.
Take a highlighting powder and lightly apply to the tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and just beneath your brows for a nice dewey look.
Simply curl your eyelashes and add a coat of mascara for a bit of depth. Nice and simple.
For your hair, part all the way down the middle and tie off into pigtails just next to your ears.
Take a hair donut and slide each pigtail through. Split the pigtail in half then secure around the donut with a second hair tie/ elastic.
Spread around the donut until completely covered, pining the hair into place along the way.
Once you are done, finish the look off with hairspray and a rosy lip balm. Don’t forget to wear a white turtleneck to complete the look! Happy Halloween!
