Mona Lisa Halloween costume

DIY Mona Lisa Halloween costume
You don’t have to go to the Louvre to check out the Mona Lisa. Be her for Halloween! It’s super easy! This one’s great for a last minute idea or one that you don’t have to spend too much time on. Plus, all it requires is a simple (mysterious) smile. Muhahaha.

MAKE-UP TUTORIAL by Rubie Huber

That enigmatic face of all enigmatic faces! 
Ok, make up confession, my one regret here is not glueing down and covering her eyebrows better, but darn it all I forgot my Elmer’s glue stick in my make up diddy bag. If you want to take this one step further, cover the eyebrows like shown here. If you wanna go my route, just use eyebrow gel and white concealer.  
What happened to the real mona’s eyebrows?  Its a mystery.
After you get the eyebrow situation covered, cover the entire face in a creamy, full coverage foundation.  I like Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse. I went one shade darker than her normal skin since Mona has a dark bronzed/antique look.  Wipe the same foundation over your lips.  
For the eyes you’ve really got to look at the picture to shade them with a brown shadow.  She’s got interesting shading that’s difficult to mimic, but looking at the picture will help you a lot.  Use a tiny dab of the same brown shadow on the corners of her mouth and under her cheek bones.  Steer clear of the mascara and eyeliner, but instead use your brown eyeliner to draw that curved line across the top of the forehead, just below the hairline.  
All you have left to do is practice your mysterious smile.
