13 Halloween Costume Ideas for Women

13 Halloween Costume Ideas for Women | Sara du Jour

Let me start by saying this post isn’t just Halloween costume ideas for women – it’s Halloween costume ideas for anyone who wants to dress up as a woman/female character for Halloween. But the SEO ranking for that would be utter sh*t, so please forgive me. All genders are welcome to dress up as whoever and whatever they want – it’s 2019 y’all.

With just over a month to go before Halloween, it’s a good time to start planning your Halloween costume. Here are 13 costumes and cosplays I’ve done so far, to hopefully help inspire you – whether you’re going to a Halloween party or dressing up at home for fun. Continue Reading →

Ariel Cosplay + Makeup – The Little Mermaid

Ariel Cosplay + Makeup - The Little Mermaid | Sara du Jour

Sebastian said it right: the human world IS a mess. That’s probably why most of us wanted to be mermaids as kids after watching Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Heck, even to this day, anytime I swim underwater I imagine I’m a mermaid. Am I alone in this?

The grass is always greener on the other side, I guess. Or the…seaweed? Anyway, it was only a matter of time before I attempted to do an Ariel cosplay from The Little Mermaid. Continue Reading →

Sephora Sale Haul: My 5 Must-Haves

What I Got in the Sephora Sale | Sara du Jour

Sephora recently had their VIB sale, meaning 15% off everything for all VIBs and 20% off for VIB Rouge members. High-end beauty products are an expensive habit, so I try not to buy anything full price if I can help it. Especially when I know I’ll need to repurchase certain products again and again anyway.

QUEEN MIDAS • Gold Makeup Look

Queen Midas - Gold Makeup | Sara du Jour

The myth of King Midas has captivated me since I first heard it as a young girl. It’s a tale of greed and grief; great wealth and even greater loneliness. For those not familiar with the Greek myth, let me tell you a story. In this story, the king will instead be a queen, because this was the inspiration behind my Queen Midas makeup look.

Once upon a time there was a queen who ruled over a prosperous land. Continue Reading →

Elsa Frozen Cosplay + Makeup | Sara du Jour

1920s Makeup: Pat McGrath x John Galliano

1920s Makeup: Pat McGrath x John Galliano | Sara du Jour

Pat McGrath is a living legend – one of the greatest makeup artists of all time. She’s behind some of the most breathtaking, avant-garde makeup looks ever created, and her collaborations with John Galliano are no exception.

I wanted to do a 1920s-inspired, editorial look based on the makeup Pat McGrath designed for John Galliano’s Spring 2011 runway show, but with my own spin on it. Continue Reading →

Scar Lion King Drag Makeup + Cosplay

Scar Lion King Drag Makeup | Sara du Jour Oh you thought I only cosplayed Disney Princesses, huh? In honour of The Lion King coming out today, I decided to do a little Scar drag makeup and cosplay.

I didn’t want to turn myself into a literal lion, so instead I drew inspiration from elements of Scar’s look in the animated Lion King movie and created this androgynous, humanoid Scar look. It’s a big departure for me, but honestly? I’m kind of digging it. Continue Reading →

Jessica Rabbit Cosplay + Drag Makeup

Jessica Rabbit Cosplay + Drag Makeup | Sara du Jour

Good morning class, welcome to Male Gaze 101. Please take your seats and turn to page 52.

I have so many questions when it comes to Jessica Rabbit, like how does she remain upright? And why is she not actually a rabbit? Her husband, Roger Rabbit, is a full rabbit, ears and all. Are we meant to understand that a rabbit married a human woman, and she took his surname of “Rabbit”? But alas, these are questions for another day. Let’s set aside our critical lens for a moment and focus instead on how to transform into one of the sexiest and most absurd animated characters that ever lived: Jessica Rabbit. Continue Reading →

Off to the Races – Queen’s Plate Outfit

Racetrack Outfit | Sara du JourQuick links: lace top | satin skirt | straw boater hat | bamboo bag | shoes

I’d never been to a horse racing event before, so when a friend suggested we attend the 160th Annual Queen’s Plate this weekend, I was excited to dress for what I regarded to be, essentially, a costume party. A costume party with fancy clothes, fancy hats, and the horses in the back. (Yes, I had to sneak that in there somewhere.)

And you know I can’t resist a theme. Continue Reading →
