Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

The day is nearly over here in the United Kingdom, but there is still plenty of day left over the pond. I love Halloween but, personally do nothing. There are plenty of parties currently going on, up I prefer to sit down to a Most Haunted/ Ghost Adventures marathon! I also set out my plastic, light up pumpkin in the window to let trick-or-treaters know I'm home.

Although Halloween is nearly over, I have had time to get one more makeup look up. My last look is the 'skele-girl'. I've seen a lot of people, today, preferring to only do a half skull but I think that it's creepier to do a full face.

The steps to this look were very basic. I smothered my face in my Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, before using a powder on to (hoping to get my face as pale as possible without white face paint). I used Benefit Boi-ing #1 on my lips to conceal them slightly.

 I used a black eyeliner to make faint marks where I would shade in. Using a large powder brush, I took a BareMinerals powder eyeliner in Stable and applied to my eyes, cheek hollows, as well as under my chin and down my neck.

I curled my eyelashes and swiped on some Bourjois Max Volume. I knew that it would be very distiguisable but I felt that it really made the look feel finished.

I used the same eyeliner to shape and fill in the tip of my nose. The mouth was created using the same products; I outlined the shape for the eyes before filling in with powder eyeliner. I then took a clean makeup removing wipe and ran that down the length 
to created the appearance of bones.

The messy nature of the powder eyeliner meant that by the time I had finished, I had great big black smudges across my face. They were easily touched up by wiping with a clean wipe and using some for foundation.

I felt like it would be a cop out to just put on a red lipstick, so I thought I'd try my had at doing one similar to a skull jaw. The end result is...weird. I think next year I may have to work on my skeleton mouths. I tried it like a normal jaw on a skull, but that also looked weird. 

Overall, I'm very happy with the look and I hope others enjoy it.

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!
