DIY Dolly Halloween Tutorial




I washed and primed my face prior to putting any makeup on; creating a blank canvas. For this look I tried to make myself as pale as possible, which wasn't very hard for two reasons: I have very fair skin that never has any colour, and I'm Scottish (notorious for pasty, white skin). I used my Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner (Perfect Black) to create thick cat eyes liner, which you can't actually see that well on the pictures.

I used Rimmel's Kate Moss #110 on my lips to crate fuller red lips; the sort you find on creepy old porcelain dolls. To create the 'cherub cheeks' effect, I took Sleek Blusher in Pixie Pink and dusted it on my cheeks liberally. 

The cracks were created with numerous eyeliners I have; both pencil and liquid. I used Elf Mineral Eye Liner in black to create faint lines which acted as a template. I then went over the top in Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Liner in black to make them stand out more, and to get a thinner line for the 'hairline' cracks. The benefit of this is that, if wearing the look to a Halloween party, the eyeliner should last twice as long before you have to reapply.

I really like this look; it turned out better than I expected. Twice throughout applying it I thought about giving up and wiping it off, but I'm glad about the finished look. I HATE the photos though! I'm going to have to figure out how to take better photos cause these are bad.

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
