The dreaded “Spring Forward” is coming for many of us. If you live in an area that does not observe Daylight Savings Time, you are lucky and you can sit back and laugh at all of us bunnies springing forward and back like the crazy March Hare. For those of us who are going to be losing that hour, maybe you can make it funner by dressing up for the occasion.
For the 2009 Edwardian Ball, I tried my hand at a very tame clock face knowing the crush, dancing, and heat level in the event wouldn’t stand for a full face of makeup to hold up. I stuck clock stickers around my eyes and painted my lids with a gold shadow. It held! If you’d like to try something even more outrageous, check out these YouTube tutorials and be sure and take pics to show us!
Looking for a way to personify the Seven Deadly Sins in your makeup? As you know, I’m a makeup addict, but I haven’t made any tutorials on the subject. Below are some ladies with the passion and braveness to share their process with the world.
Horror on a Budget is a youtube user that shows you how to do horror makeup on the cheap. She did a Seven Deadly Sins series, but hasn’t finished it. She did two of them (watch below) and I hope she does more!
Perhaps a better makeup artist but less horror-related is KlairedelysArt. Below she brings us a few other of the sins.
And lastly, if you’re looking for a slightly funner or more brilliant green Envy, check out this Poison Ivy tutorial.

NYX (not to be confused with NYC) shadows and powders
Liquid black eyeliner art – don’t be afraid to paint outside the lines
Glitter plunger – to spray a favorite glitter onto wet eyeliner– instant glitter glue
Prosthetic glue – to glitter up your eyes without worrying about it coming off
Sparkle nail polish to add small dots on eyeliner dots – not directly on face and not too close to eye… that hurts!
Stripey knee socks (black and white are kinda out, choose another color or go with a non-striped pattern)
Wrist warmers or fingerless gloves
Scarves – all different textures… but must be soft to the skin
Awesome boots of all kinds
Layered, multi-textured skirts of all lengths
“Emz has her own unique style. I’ve known some very fashion conscious people, but they’re usually dressing to impress others. Emz dresses to express herself. I especially noticed the creativity of her eye make-up. The two siides were deliberately coordinated but not identical. They were unique– like Emz.” ~Heather Roulo
