Category is: Greek God Realness!
Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays of all time! It’s that one day of year where people’s creative juices get flowing and you get to be someone else for the day. You get to think outside of the box, step out of your comfort zone and be over the top.
I love a good theme so I always try to pick something fun and over the top for Halloween. This year, I wanted to pay homage to my Greek roots and go with a character from Greek Mythology. I chose Helios, the God Of The Sun. Helios has always been one of my favorite characters from Greek Mythology. He’s this Golden God who brightens everyones day. Like literally. He brings the sun out every day, honey!
Helios was the god of the Sun in Greek mythology. He was thought to ride a golden chariot which brought the Sun across the skies each day from the east to the west while at night he did the return journey in leisurely fashion lounging in a golden cup.
For my costume, I had a custom made gold toga made for me and accessorized it with a gold sunburst crown and black and gold leather gladiator boots.
Want to recreate my Halloween look? Here are some of my favorite products that I used to get this golden look!
I love love love being tan! And we all know you can’t go out as a Greek God and not have a gorgeous, dark tan. Sometimes it’s hard to make the time in your busy schedule for a spray tan so I love a good self tanner that you can use on the go. For this look, I went with two of my new favorite go-to products to get the perfect tan.
This is my go-to product for a fast tan. The Skin Perfecting Body Foundation works to blur imperfections, while enhancing your skin tone and provides a flawless finish for any look. The creamy formula blends evenly and seamlessly into your skin and is never sticky or heavy. It also smells amazing with subtle hints of vanilla and coconut. We used this over the sun drops to give my skin a sexy and deeper tan for this look.
I am obsessed with Haute Bronze’s formula for this! First of all, it smells amazing and it doesn’t feel oily. Just add 1 to 3 drops onto your skin or to your moisturizer for a beautiful, natural-looking glow to your face or your body. We wanted a darker tan for this look so we added a few extra drops to my body.
This one-time use mitt is amazing! It gives you the perfect amount of self tan for a streak-free natural glow. The mitt applies the clear formula onto your skin without staining your hands and develops into a glowing tan. I love that you can apply this and then do your makeup while you wait for the self tanner to kick in.
I am obsessed with this makeup blender from The Gods! It’s not available for sale yet but when it is, you will want to add this to your makeup collection asap! It helps you apply your foundation so smoothly and really does feel like you’re using a fluffy cloud to apply your makeup.
This is my favorite moisturizer! A rich cream that feeds skin with plumping hydration and antioxidant-packed Japanese purple rice for a dewy, healthy glow. Ideal for dry skin, but can be used on normal skin for those who prefer a richer texture.
This primer is one of my favorites! It’s a lightweight hydrating makeup primer for normal to dry skin that instantly nourishes, with a silky-smooth formula that keeps skin comfortable all day while improving and extending foundation wear. With the help of ingredients like Grape Seed Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate, which are known for their hydrating powers, this fast-absorbing formula feels incredibly silky-smooth and melts into your skin delivering a soft silk finish that you will love!
This is one of my favorite concealers! I love that it gives you full coverage and a radiant finish. It has a light-diffusing effect with a creamy and silky formula that blends seamlessly and locks into place for a smooth, even finish. It has shea butter that helps moisturize your skin and olive oil that helps soften your skin.
I love this foundation! It is a water-infused liquid foundation that delivers buildable coverage while blurring imperfections. And the best part is that it is so smooth when you’re putting it on and it stays on all night. I also love that it doesn’t transfer onto your clothes which is amazing!
This is one of my all time favorite bronzers! It’s a long-wear and transfer-resistant bronzing powder that comes in 8 shades made to give you an instant sun-soaked glow. It’s made with mango and papaya fruit extracts to help give skin a natural, healthy-looking glow with every swipe. I also love using this bronzer to contour my nose and my forehead.
Kristofer Buckle’s Exposure Matte Warming Powder adds so much warmth and dimension to enhance and define your features. It has a silky, lightweight formula that blends seamlessly onto your skin that helps create the illusion of a natural, sun-kissed appearance. I love how this bronzer blends so smoothly and is so buildable.
This is my go to highlighter that I use almost every day! It gives you a radiant glow to complexion and accentuates the structure of your face. The cream highlighter adds a warm lit-from-within glow and the powder blends seamlessly for a natural luminescence. It also comes with a double-ended brush for flawless results. The rounded, domed side allows for smooth highlighting cream application while the tapered end is perfect for powder application.
My eyebrows are my favorite part of my face! This is my go to product for keeping my eyebrows looking full and fresh. It is a full-pigment, waterproof eyebrow pomade that makes it easy to help fill in your eyebrows. It is a long-lasting, buildable formula glides on smoothly to skin and hair and allows time for blending before drying down completely to a matte finish.
I love this setting spray! It’s great for keeping your makeup looking fresh all night. It helps keep your makeup looking fresh and helps control excess oil and shine. The lightweight formula isn’t dry or sticky which is amazing! We also used this setting spray to keep the gold foil on my face and on my body to stay in place all night.
