Halloween Makeup ideas from New Image College

HALLOWEEN: it’s kind of like New Year’s Eve – everyone always leaves their plans to the last minute, holding out for the best plan for the night. And specifically, in the case of Halloween, the costume can sometimes be the be-all and end-all of the plan-making process.

But what if you already had the products in your house? Or it only, really, took a trip to the local drugstore to create your character? This is the beauty of MAKEUP it has the power to transform! Don’t stress about the costume! Just focus on the makeup and you could be on your way to the best costume you’ve ever come up with!

Whether cutesy, glamourous, sexy, or scary, here are 4 makeup ideas that could even go so far as to win you the Costume Competition and be the trick – or treat – that you were looking forward to this Halloween!

Whether you’d consider yourself a beginner or someone with lots of makeup experience, the 4 looks below can be completed in as little as 45-90 minutes! That’ not bad, if all you have to do is throw on a shirt from your closet! We all know, the search for that great costume can be futile, and take forever!!! So, stick with what you know, and use makeup as the first step!

Here are some fun and crowd-pleasing looks from one of our very own New Image College Makeup Instructors: Tati Antinossi. Find her on Instagram: @tatiantinossi

The PNE Chef’s Garden

We are very excited to launch a new sustainability initiative here at the PNE in partnership with Safeway. The PNE Chef’s Garden is a fresh and local garden where we are growing over 500lbs of food for use by our PNE Food and Beverage team.

PNE_ChefsGardenLogo_RGBsmall

Many people don’t realize that the PNE manages the over 105 acres of Hastings Park on a year round basis. We have staff on site seven days a week, year-round, maintaining the buildings, the grounds, the park space and now also our spray-free fruit, vegetable and herb gardens! Trained horticulturists in our gardening team tend to the over 20 plants including, cucumbers, strawberries, thyme, lettuce, basil, watermelon, kale and potatoes. You can see an exhibit of The PNE Chef’s Gardens during The Fair in Farm Country.

You may be asking at this point, ‘well what happens to all the ripe product?’ It gets eaten… by you! The product grown in the gardens gets incorporated by our Food and Beverage department into the food we serve at catered events onsite like the meals served to the artists who play at the Pacific Coliseum and in the dishes prepared for our private catered events. Hence the name, The PNE Chef’s Garden!

Don’t forget to visit Market Fresh at The Fair for healthy options straight from our gardens. As we grow this initiative, food will also be incorporated into many of our Food and Beverage initiatives onsite during Playland and The Fair. So just think, next time you order a Crazy Dog, Shrimp Boat platter or Unroutine Poutine, that sprinkle of chive, sliver of carrot or even slice of onion and lettuce came straight from our gardens that morning! This is just another small step in our journey on becoming a zero waste and fully sustainable site.

Check our blog frequently for updates from the PNE Chef’s Garden where we’ll be sharing what’s grown and how it’s all being used.

The Beast is Waiting For You…

Yesterday we played host to many of the local media who were invited to capture the fist images of our new thrill ride, The Beast. Plus, we needed a few more test rides before we were ready to open it to the public, so who better to put on the ride!

Check out images from the event below, and footage from the inside facing seats on YouTube. The Beast will be ready for you to ride this weekend during our Opening ‘Long’ Weekend Celebration.  We’ll be open, and The Beast will be ready to terrorize you, this Saturday through Monday from 10am until 6pm.

Save on Playland PlayPasses online or at Lower Mainland 7-Eleven, Safeway, Save-on-Foods, Urban Fare, PriceSmart Foods and Cooper’s stores.

The Beast 

As wild and dark as its name depicts, The Beast will have you screaming with terror from before you even get strapped in. The Beast is the first of its kind to North America, and Canada’s most extreme pendulum ride. With one menacing pendulum arm, you will be swung 120° in either direction facing either inside the ride or out (another first in North America), reaching heights of over 125 feet (that’s nearly 12 storeys), all while flying 90 km/hr in a seat that spins you 360°. Sounds as scary as it is, trust us!
