Cheetah Halloween Makeup

The second part of this years Halloween series. I kept flip-flopping between having this post focusing on either chocolate-caramel apples (!!) or halloween makeup. I get so much enjoyment out of halloween makeup so that greatly influenced my decision.

I decided to redo and update my previous attempt at kitty-cat halloween makeup. I have a bit more product to play around with this year (ok, well a lot more product) so I decided to see what I could do. The cat is an easy choice; who has never been a cat to a halloween party? It is always one of my top outfits, if not the top.

I created my 'cheetah' by applying my normal foundation routine the stippling some white facepaint over my lower forehead, nose, cheeks and upper lip. I used a deep warm bronzer to get some colour on my face. I brushed it along the outer edges of my forehead, my cheeks, chin and along the sides of my nose. I made sure that the transition from tan to white was a bit gradual (like you'd see on a cat). A really smokey brown eye with thick black 'cat eye' liner, and full lashes, make a really nice effect. I used a black grease paint to print cheetah marking all down one side of my face. If you have a side parting with quite a deep side fringe, then it will show up more on the opposite side. Black lips, nose and whiskers completed the makeup.

One thing I really wanted to try this year was to turn my hair into car ears, I mean, how fun does that sound. I found a video tutorial by Kayley Melissa  on Youtube, which showed how to do it. It took me a while to tease and figure out how to secure my hair properly. I also cannot curl my hair so I just rolled my hair around two fingers and tucked it in a similar manner to the video.

I will always be a cat for Halloween!

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. 

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…

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!
