DIY Kitty Halloween Tutorial

The time for Halloween is quickly approaching!

While guaranteed, Halloween is not as popular in Britain as it is across the pond, it can quickly turn into a major social event. Where I live it is used as more of a chance for the students to let go midterm and have a great big party. The party at the student union is LEGENDARY!

In spirit of the upcoming events I'm going to run a series of different looks that can be created through the use of everyday makeup (no fancy face paints for me, no siree). The first look I wanted to try was the traditional Halloween kitty cat. At any party it can be guaranteed that at least a quarter of the people there will chose this. As I am a 'cat-person' it would always be my first choice.

I washed and primed my face prior to putting any makeup on; creating a blank canvas. For this look I never used any foundation as, to me, the other makeup would just cover it up. I used a tiniest amount of a basic dark brown potted shadow that I owned and buffed it all over my face to give it a bit more depth and colour. I used Barry M Blink precision eyeliner to line out the area for the nose before I filled in with Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner (Perfect Black). I used the exact same Too Faced eyeliner to make a thicker cat eye (how aptly named); before making sure to create and define the space around the tear duct.

  I then packed Elf Custom Eyes, in Ivory, HEAVILY on my upper lip, as well as along the bridge of my nose. I made sure to blend the edges so there were no harsh lines. The eye shadow also has highlighting properties which made it especially vibrant in the light. The last part was to create the cat's mouth. Taking the same Too Faced eyeliner I made the join between the nose and the mouth. I then filled in my upper lip. The whiskers were created with the Barry M Blink pen as it gave the finer lines needed.

If all else fails I'm a cat this year <3

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!
