    Default What kind of eye make up would Lucy wear?

    I'm going as "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" for Halloween. I'm throwing a huge party and really want my costume to be complete; not look like something I threw together.

    I've pretty much got it but I need ideas for eye makeup. I think of the lines "the girl with kaleidescope (sp?) eyes" and "the girl with the sun in her eyes". How do I portray that with eye makeup? Turqiose, cobalt blue, bright gold, violet?? The shirt literally looks like clouds with rhinestones all over it. The skirt is long and silvery with rhinestones. My hair will be tousled with blue and pink streaks, topped with glitter spray.

    I have these rainbow colored eyelashes, but I'm not sure how they'll look or if they'll be enough. Any input would help!

    Don't they make little rhinestons that you can put on your skin? What if you put different eyeshadow colors on your eyes and then put rhinestones to the sides of your eyes?

    Just an idea.

    Neat idea for Halloween!

    Yes, I'm definitely getting rhinestones for the face. I'm just lost as how to apply the eyeshadow and what colors to use.

    Thank you for the input.

    I like the idea of a few rhinestones on the skin.

    You could also do a rainbow eye:









    or just a two or three-colour eye:







    You can find tutorials for pretty much all these looks on blogs or YouTube. Your costume sounds great!

    Love the lips here, too! Eyes especially ridiculous but somehow alluring (hair is adorable)!

    You can get eyeliner strips with rhinestones on them. They just press right on. Used them when I was Tina Turner. Also,I would get those hair pins with stones on them & stick all through the hair.

    That's exciting. I really miss dressing up.

    I realize the eyes need to be in bright blue hues to go with the rest of the costume.

    Here was my very first attempt before asking for advice.


    Then here are the "Sun in her Eyes" style, but the lighting doesn't show how vibrant it is.





    And here's what I've decided on, but there will also be rhinestones on my face.







    Same makeup, different lighting.

    You look purty! Love your nose

    I've got this stuff- it's awesome, it's paint on glitter eyeliner, and you can really go to town with it, or use it subtley as well.

    Your eye make up looks great. You remind me of Olivia Wilde or a prettier version of that blond haired girl who was in Mama Mia, Mean Girls and Big Love.
