This year I'm going to be BETTY RUBBLE from The Flintstones for Halloween. It was a very last minute and this is the first year I made my own costume! Usually I go to the costume shops and buy the already put together ensemble, but money is tight so I'm getting creative! Initially I went to Micheal's with my BFF to help her put together her Pebbles Flinstone outfit and ended up leaving with the materials to make my Betty Rubble costume.

I've never done this before, but it was so much fun, and I'm proud of the outcome! I bought 2 blue t-shirts and a large white shell charm for a necklace. I came home and started cutting! I cut the edges jagged to create the "Flinstone effect" and used the iron on fusion netting to stick the pieces together. I sewed the top part to close up top part of the dress. I had a long wig from last year when I was a hippie so I cut that short, and made a bow with the scraps from the t-shirt and stuck a bow in the middle. This is going to be good! I will take pictures so you can see the outcome!
- I feel a great mascara can open the eye and instantly make you look as though you’ve have a good night’s sleep, even when that is not the case. I use 2-3 coats of Lancome Fatale on the top, bottom, and also on the back of the top lashes.
- Because of my Indian ancestry, I love darkly rimmed eyes – a messy eye adds a sexy yet natural look to a classic outfit. To make the eyes smoky, I use Revlon’s Luxurious Color Kohl eyeliner in Black Truffle on the inside of the lids.
- Bright lipstick is a way to quickly pop an outfit and freshen up a look a la Ava Gardner in “The Barefoot Contessa.” My favorite bright is MAC’s Morange lipstick – it’s a great way to add a twist to a classic look.
- Another way to make your face pop is to fill in the eyebrows. I use Bobbi Brown’s eye shadow in Navajo.
