Transforming myself into the Queen of the Nile

Cleopatra makeup tutorial

I have always loved Halloween, it's really just another opportunity to be creative. It's fun to see what everyone comes up with. I only decided a few days ago that I would dress up. I haven't in a few years and really didn't have many ideas. I wanted to dress up as something that required a lot of face makeup to put my skills to the test. Initially i wanted to be a geisha because I just finished the book, Memoirs of a Geisha, and it was a great read. The geisha makeup is exquisite, but problem! Where am I going to buy a Kimono three days away from Halloween. I thought maybe I would make one but with my minimal sewing skills the task seemed daunting. Still might do it next year! Then a friend mentioned cleopatra. I had thought about that too. Then I remembered I had a black dress I hadn't worn yet with a gold trim that would be perfect! I have tons of junky gold jewelry and a pair of gold heels! I'll be the gaudiest cleopatra ever! Yay! I used Elizabeth Taylor as my Cleopatra inspiration! She was the best Cleopatra in my opinion! 

Since I have big shoes to fill trying to replicate the style of one of the most beautiful women documented in history I decided to read up on her. As it turns out scientist have recently discovered that the black eye makeup worn wasn't solely for beauty purposes but the salt in the black liner also helped to protect against eye disease. Cleopatra had many beauty tricks up her sleeve and loved to bathe in milk and honey. If you want a hair treatment fit for a queen I found a few recipes that she used: 

*****Cleopatra’s natural shampoo:
The secret of beautiful and luxurious hair of Cleopatra is hidden in natural ingredients, one of them is simple egg.
Wipe 3 eggs with water and wash your hair with this self-made, natural shampoo spreading it from the roots to the ends of your hair and then, rinse.

*****Warm oil hair treatment of Cleopatra:
Cleopatra used deep conditioning treatments to make her hair look shiny and silky.
Another one of the beauty secrets of Cleopatra is warm oil treatment:
Mix 2 table spoons of olive oil with 2 table spoons of castor oil, warm the oils up over low heat and massage them into your scalp, spreading on the length of your hair. (Make sure that the oils are comfortable to touch when you apply them on yourself, because we want to be beautiful, not cooked :D). Put on your shower cup and then – towel, wait for 30 minutes or 1 hour (some people even go to sleep with the oil treatment on their head, it might not be very comfortable, but the result is great!); then, wash and condition your hair, as usual. Oil treatments have an amazing effect when done regularly.

*****Cleopatra’s treatment for damaged hair:
Mix 3 table spoons of honey with 1 table spoon of castor oil (if you don’t have castor oil – olive oil will do), apply this substance on your freshly washed hair and let it soak in for 5-15 minutes, then rinse. This natural hair treatment helps to repair damaged hair, giving it more shine and softness.

I didn't bathe in milk and honey or do a fancy hair treatment today but I did shower and I bought a decent wig from Halloween express for $14.99 and it is very shiny. Close enough. Cleopatra also used a pure gold face mask to keep her youthful look, but I was fresh out of 14K so I used my normal daily moisturizer by skinceuticals. It's almost as good as gold and just about as expensive but it's worth every penny. It is my one beauty splurge. Lilliana at Lilliana's in Lexington reccomends it. She is a wonderful esthititician by the way! Check out her facebook page Lilliana's. She gives a brutal facial and will rip your face off but you will love the end result. I am a fan of her microderm abrasion and glycolic peel. Cleopatra herself would approve. 

Ok let's get started!!! I have been really excited about doing this look!  I hope you enjoy this video. If you have any product questions just comment below! Thank you for reading my blog and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! 👻🎃☠️🎃👻
