I thought this October I'm finally going to go all out for Halloween. I love Halloween, as a makeup artist it's fantastic as you can just go wild! So I thought why not go a tad wild on here too this month and do a Halloween theme. I haven't really ever done a Halloween Series but I'm just too excited for Halloween this year! I'm going to try and put up a Halloween post every other scheduled day, so there'll be at least one or two a week, from cupcakes to tutorials!
I have been planning out what I want to go as this Halloween and I'm really leaning towards being a Skull or Sugar Skull, so I've been scouring the internet for some bits and pieces to pick up! Plus I just like mixing up my homeware constantly haha!
I thought the perfect pairing to be a skeleton this year has to be this amazing Skeleton Mini Dress from Topshop, after the success of their Xray Skeleton Dress last year, it's no surprise its back again! Makeup wise I always go back to my trusty Illamasqua Skin Base and its perfect that they also do it in white, its so much more flattering and longer lasting on the skin than your usual face paint. Though If I decide in the end to go for a bit more of a Sugar Skull theme, ASDA are doing the best headband Floral Headband to add to the look.
Im also a tad in love with the new range of lashes for Halloween from Eylure, especially these Carnival Lashes, they're so delicate but would make such an impact. Then paired with probably the best scent ever made to go along with Halloween, is the Library of Fragrance scent in Pumpkin Pie! They also do some great ones like Thuderstorm that fits quite well too.
I always love all the little bits and pieces that the supermarkets do every year and this year they've done some of the best party wear and little decorative things. I really love the Skull Glass Bottle from Asda, I have one of these in my room with flowers in. So maybe this one with fake dead flowers would be a little halloween update! I really want to make some halloween cupcakes too so as soon as I spotted the Skull Cupcake Stand from Tesco. The perfect way to display all that baking hard work! Plus it cant be Halloween without some tea lights and a pumpkin, so I think the Pumpkin Tea Light Holder from Poundland is such a great little idea!
Finally not really sticking with my Skull theme, I've been thinking about what to do with my nails, but I really love the DIYNails range. I think the Gold Foil Spaced Out Stickers are a great one, especially paired with the green and purple duo chrome shades inside MAC Mean and Green.
Hopefully there'll be plenty of Halloween posts to come, but I also have my review of the Lush Halloween Range too. A Lush Halloween bath is probably my favourite way to get ready for this month!
