Face of the Day (FOTD) and Just for Fun: My Halloween Costume – Amy Winehouse

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD), Just For Fun, MAC Makeup

Trick or Treat! This year I’m the short, brown, non-alcoholic version of AMY WINEHOUSE.

Here’s what I used to get the look:


MAC Blacktrack Fluidline (LOTS AND LOTS OF IT!)
MAC Plushlash in Plushblack
MAC Shadow in Woodwinked all over lid
MAC Concrete in brows
MAC Select Moisturecover Concealer

MAC Mocha blush
MAC Dollymix blush

MAC Cremestick liner in Red Enriched
MAC Lipstick in Dubonnet

Garnier Fructis Full Control Hairspray
Streekers Instant Liquid Hairclolor in Yellow

I haven’t done big hair in about 15 years so I hope this massive bird’s nest on the top of my head stays put for the rest of the day.

What did you dress up as? Whatever it is I hope it’s cute!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I gotta give some blog love to my husband (aka El Hub), who, in an ironic twist of fate, is at the dentist having his first cavities drilled today! Be strong, baby!

    Diggin’ the Amy Winehouse-do! And Ouch to your hubby – I wouldn’t want to be in the dentist’s chair today. The guy might just be dressed up as a dentist for Halloween, ya know? 😉

    Happy Halloween!

  3. Hello, is my wife here?? Hey, babe. I survived the dentist. He said I could even eat candy tonight! SCORE!

    My dentist looks EXACTLY like the crazy psycho dentist Steve Martin played in Little Shop of Horrors. I was skerred.

  5. Megan says:

    Your costume is great… You totally should give yourself a fake mole to match her. I was Betty Boop for two parties…and the fake lashes were my favorite part. I did this long wear red lisptick…it was so dry…it looked hot…but my lips felt ick…

  6. Vanessa says:

    Nice costume! You rockin’ chic! Awww poor hubby, I hate the dentist…

  7. Apple Diva says:

    Nice custom. I hope that when you sang “Rehab” Or “Back To Black” you were slurring the words heavily…. Was your hubby the fast dancing back-up dancer? Too funny…..

  8. U look hot Ms. Karen Winehouse!!!!

  9. Karen says:

    Lol, Christine, those earrings are from (get ready) 1991. I keep them in a Pink & Green Caboodle (yes, a Caboodle) with a bunch of costume jewelry from my high school years. I never thougt they’d ever see the light of day again, ha!

  10. Karen says:

    Thanks, Lilan! I saw your post with your costume today. Cute!

  11. Karen says:

    Don’t be scurred, lovie. Thank you for going to the dentist. It’s for the good of Karen-kind (um, I don’t want to be kissing dentures in the future). xoxox

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Makeuplovesme!

    I love your cat ears on the subway pic! Too cute! Happy Halloween!

  13. Karen says:

    Aww, crap Megan! I totally forgot about the mole, oy! Only about 2 people knew who I was anyway, and that’s only because I had a Perrier bottle wrapped up in a brown paper bag and looked like a drunkard. Sigh.

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Vanessa,

    I hate the dentist too. One of my good friends is one and I do not hesitate to tell her everytime I see her that I think she’s a masochist for inflicting pain on others, HA!

    I saw your post with all your goody bags full of candy! I want one!

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Apple Diva,

    HA! I wish he was my backup dancer! I asked and he turned me down.

    When are you coming my way to the West Side?!?!

  16. Karen says:

    Woot! Thanks I Love MAC!

  17. Sarah says:

    Great costume!

    I love the earrings.

  18. Karen says:

    Thanks, Sarah! Who knew those cheesy earrings could get a second chance at life in 2007, ha! Did you dress up for Halloween?

  19. Ann says:

    You’ve got really great looks over here!
    A, I guess pretty odd, question I’ve got is if it’s against the law to show boost in photos?… I’m not from your country you’ll see:)

  20. Karen says:

    Thanks Ann. Hmmm, I dont’ think it is.

    The funny thing is that is a water bottle in that paper bag! I’m not much of a drinker in real life.

  21. Karen says:

    Thanks Rocketqueen! Now only if I could get away with looking like that every day!
