Happy October!!! This is definitely one of the favorite times of year for the ladies of Indy Hip Chic!! We’ll be enjoying the season and sharing some fun and creative costumes with you guys this month! Some will be really easy, some a little more involved, but it’s all about having fun and getting creative!!! Today we’re kicking of the IHC Costume series with a cute rendition of the Juvia’s place Warrior palette!! This costume was super easy to put together and i LOVEEEE the finished product!! It’s just so dang cute!!!
We start off with the eyes. The eyes on the palette are pretty understated, so this is a costume even beginners should be able to pull off. I started by filling in my brows with the Anastasia Beverly Hill Brow Wiz and cleaning them up with Tarte shape tape concealer. For my lids, I started with Elizabeth Mott thank me later eyeshadow primer. Next, I used Juvia’s place Warrior palette “Kano” pretty much all over. At first I was just going to use it as a transition color, but then I decided to put it all over my lid too. Next, I used “Mino” to define my crease. I used a small brush to draw a line with Mino, then blended it out for a slightly smokey look! I finished the eyes with a VERY thin line of black pencil eyeliner, Tarte tartiest lash paint mascara, and Kiss “brasserie” lashes!
Then I went in with complexion products. I used the NYX can’t stop, won’t stop foundation in the shade “nutmeg”. For concealer, I used Too Faced Born This Way concealer in the colors “warm sand” (for highlighting) and “toffee” for contouring. The most noticeable part of the makeup on the warrior palette is the highlight. Madame Warrior is GLOWING, so I wanted to make sure I reallyyyy got the highlight to be noticeable. After blending my highlight and contour, I went in with my favvvvorite loose highlighter, conceited by Artist Couture. I went in pretty heavily with this highlighter on the highest points of my cheeks, down the center of my nose, my forehead, my chin and my cupids bow. I followed up with a bit of the Amrezzy highlighter on the highest points of my cheeks as well.
Next, I did my bottom lash line. I used the same black pencil liner to line my water line and went in with Mino all across the lash line to smoke it out. Finished up with the same tarte mascara and voila! We’re almost done!
The final bit of makeup was the lips! I used the deep brown liquid lipstick from AJ Crimson in the shade “boy bye”. Full disclaimer: I don’t like this lipstick lol. I haven’t used it since my B.O.M.B. video and couldn’t really remember why. It feels soooo dry, but never actually dries. My lips were sticky for hours (until I took it off). I thought it looked really pretty for the pictures though! I went in with a bit of the Amrezzy highlighter in the center of my lips to mimic the palette cover a little better. LOVED IT!! I set it all with Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. Now time for the jewlery!!!
Most of my jewlery today came from Forever 21. The necklace, earrings and ear cuff are from there. I got them all for ~$20 total. The nose ring is one I’ve had forever (from Spencers). The change between the nose ring and earring is some random bracelet I found in an old jewlery box lol. (Everything doesn’t have to be new!!! If you already have something that will work USE IT!!! Save that coin!!)
I decided against shaving my head, or making a bald cap, so I went with a big braided pony for my hair. I used a gold clamp Krystal had on hand for the base of my pony and a few of those gold clamp things placed randomly throughout my hair. They’re the hair jewels you see girls using in their box braids, senegalese twists, etc. They’re super cheap and every beauty supply store has them!
That’s about it for this look! It was super easy and pretty cheap to accomplish!! How’d I do? Let me know in the comments below!! If you decided to try this comment out, don’t forget to take pictures and tag @indyhipchic so I can see them!!! See you in the next post!! Byeeeeee!!!
