Trick or Treat?

Hey Everyone, Happy Halloween! I thought I'd share a few of the looks I did for my friends this year, I was happy enough with them :) My friend Ash below, saw a skull make-up on Pinterest that she wanted me to recreate, bear in mind this took whatever strength I had left that day, I was so tired... I used Blackout eyeshadow by Urban Decay  for the entire look :)

Our comic book/ pop-art girl Laura looked amazing, the white dots were done using the end of a makeup brush (a nail dotting tool would be perfect, I didn't have one though) and white nail varnish. It meant that the dots stayed put all night and actually glowed in the dark which was cool. Nail varnish on  skin, you ask? Surely that can't be good. I had an incredibly thick layer of makeup on her skin, to get that cartoon like skin, so the varnish kinda sat on that, mind the fumes aren't nice :) it comes off easy along with the makeup, although if you're planning on trying this, proceed at your own risk, and don't go too close to the eyes or mouth with it.

Yours truly was too shattered to do anything fancy so a onesie and a kitty nose and whiskers later, I present you with Soft Kitty :) 

What's everyone dressing up as?

Sugarskull Halloween Make-Up

Hi Everyone! Here's another halloween idea for yas, this was pretty hard to do, trying to make everything symmetrical was next to impossible! It would make a nice costume if you had a flower crown and a pretty dress methinks.... Sorry for the heavily edited photos, I got a bit carried away on Instagram haha. Hope you like it!

Nutcracker Halloween Make-Up

Hi Everyone! I'm hoping to get a few Halloween looks up in the next 3 weeks, I don't have tutorials unfortunately, because I usually just wing it when it comes to these types of fancy dress looks. If you have any questions on how to do this, just ask in the comments! It's pretty straight forward really but surprisingly time consuming! I remember personally being petrified of that nutcracker animation they show at Christmas when I was little so this freaked me out a bit haha. Let me know if there's any looks you'd like to see in the next coming weeks!
