Halloween Week! ..Good Eyemakeup For Halloween.

Hey lovelies..
So I thought I would post good eyemakeup brands and products for Halloween. You can use anything but I just thought I would post good ideas that voloumise and add big bold color.
You want lots of color on your eyes so here are some dazzle dusts/ eye dusts that are great for color;
  • Collection 2000's range of eye dusts. They're great for bright color but you do need to apply a lot for a matte, bold color. They're very sheer when they're applied, so you need to apply with a thick applicator, not a eye brush. Jaffa, Spellbound and Enigma are the shades and you get these from Savers. I think they're discontinued in Boots, Superdrug etc.
  • Primark dazzledusts (the small round pots) are amazing! They were £1 for all of them and I thought I would test them out.. I dont use them all the time but they add a huge 'pop of color' when you use them. 
  • MUA eye dusts. These are ok-ish but they dont apply as good as the Primark ones. They're shimmery eyeshadows in my opinion. I prefer the purple one to the green one.
  • The LA Color quad is good for a dark smoky look, its good if you want to look scary! You just have to build the color up.
  • Rimmel 'Stir It Up' is amazing! I love this and it was £1 in Savers. Its quite creamy, I love it.
Eyeliner is an essential if you're going as a cat! So MUA is great for flicks, wings and cat eye.
I love using the mascara's pictured above because the 'Cats Eye' one is great for winging eyelashes out. Primark lashes are also cheap and effective!

So I hope this was somewhat helpful! I'd love to see everyone's makeup looks for Halloween! Post below!

Happy Halloween..

Halloween Week! ..Nails For Halloween!

Hey Lovelies!
So for Halloween, the scary and dark colors are the main part! Its great if your nails fit in too! I know that they're not the main part of your costume or your outfit or the day/night/party, but they add that extra touch!
Red, blue, green, purple, black, white.. they're all great colors for Halloween and simple to buy!
I think its a good idea if you buy some cheap nail polishes if they're not your everyday colors or you wont use them again.. MUA do a good range, and they're cheap! But if you're not going to use them again..MAC is a silly idea, so I just used my spare nail polishes.
Nail art pens are good for Halloween, they're an essential for nail art.. they're pretty cheap to buy from Argos in big sets. 
I'm not very arty but I came up with some good ideas!
  • Glittery nails are great for Halloween! Its dark at Halloween parties and treat or treat, so its nice to add some sparkle!
  • Spiders webs are obviously essential! Its the whole part of Halloween! You could do red&black for a Spiderman theme or black&white for the basic theme.
  • Tree's are a bit of a different design, and I didnt think I'd be able to do them as good as well as I did! Purple and black is a pretty design, you can switch up the color though!
  • Pumpkin's are a good design, they're pretty easy, you just have to be careful with the nail art pen!
  • Cats are also a good but different design, I risked messing them up haha!
So I hope you liked the pictures and designs! I'd love it if you attempted them, you can always send me a picture or something, I'd love to see them! 
Happy Halloween..

So I just thought I'd tell you all! And I hope you enjoy these posts! The first post will be later on today!
Happy Halloween..

September Empties/Faves

 Hiya lovelies!
So this post is quite delayed because my camera was playing up and stuff, thats why my Youtube video hasnt gone up yet. I always seem to be delayed on Youtube with my monthly faves and then I never seem to post my faves/empties on to here.. so its late BUT, I remembered this time!
So in September I didnt really have many faves, and if I did, I've already said them before or they're my empties! So I've combined them together.. I'll start with Empties first;
  • My Elvive 'Smooth Silk' intense shampoo. This is so good, this ran out in like early September, I haven't yet repurchased but I think I might have to, my hairs ruined! This is about £3/£4 in Tesco or Boots.
  • Next empty! This is my everyday deodorant. I dont use any other deodorant, I just pick this one up from Tesco in my weekly shop! It smells lovely, its fresh and not heavy and lasts a long time! ..and its only £1, ha!
  • This is my old cleansing lotion. I didnt have any at the time so I just picked it up from Wilkinsons for £1, but I got bored of it, so I have now bought a new one which I'll post up. Its okay and does cleanse the skin, but its not a cream type lotion, its alcohol.. dont think its very good for the skin?
  • Next is the VO5 'give me moisture' conditioner. This is amazing if you have split ends! AMAZING for the ends of your hair to give moisture! Love love love this, and its good if you straighten your hair, as it doesnt leave residue and leaves it shiny, not greasy looking.
  • Alberto Balsam.. this is the shampoo that smells like coconut.. the smell is lovely, the shampoo isnt.. I washed my makeup brushes with this halfway through the bottle, it just didnt suit my hair.
  • The next one is the crystal elvive conditioner.. love this! Really want to purchase again, and the smell is lovely!
  • I always use these wet wipes, they last about 2/3 weeks and they take my makeup on and off, leave my skin smooth and they make my skin feel fresh, these are just the Tesco ones that you get from the baby isle!
  • The next one is colorseal gloss, this is good for extensions and freshly died hair, I've used the red and brown one, I love them.. great for £1! I'm just wondering if they do a bigger one!
So I hope you liked my empties and hope I added a variety! I'm going to do my small amount of September faves now:-).
  • I've been loving the volume sensation mascara this month! I found this in Poundland a while back *cheeky*. I had this when I was about 10/11 and I love it! I love the wand, its big, it adds volume and its great for bottom and top lashes. 
  • I Love the color tattoo from Maybelline's 'studio' range. I think that its great to build up with eyeshadow or wearing it on its own. I'd love to try the other colors, this is the only one I have at the moment, but its such a basic brown where you can do simple or dramatic looks with it.
  • Then, last one, I've been loving the Poundland chubby stick dupe. This is brill for an all day look on the lips, adding a tiny bit of shimmer and a juicy feel. Also, cheeky tip!.. if you get a spare eyebrush, you can actually use it in the same way you use the eye tattoo.. it DOES crease so you will need to use the eyetattoo as a base or use a primer as a base.. or you could use it for a thick eyeliner look.. ive tried, it works! Make sure you use a brush though, because mixing eyes with lips may be a bit unhygenic.
So I hope you enjoyed this big post, I'm glad I remembered to post this as I never normally do! I can now put my things in the bin! 
Lots of love..

My Nails Of The Week!

Hey Lovelies!

So I thought I would go back to my normal posts of 'Nails Of The Week!'. I havent done these in ages because I went on a blog/youtube break AND I didnt paint my nails for a while because they become so dry..dont ask me, I have no idea!
So this week on my nails is Ciate 'Wait Until Dark' and LA color 'Treasure Island'. 
Ciate costs £8 but this one was £1.50 in my local shop! I did a post a while ago on this. The LA Color one was £1 in Westfield; Beauty Base. 
The Ciate one is really nice and has a different color but its a bit drying and really made my mum's nails in bad condition. I like the shade but if I was to buy a Ciate polish I would'nt opt for this color, just because its not really me. I LOVE the LA color one though! Such a pretty sparkly color! 
Hope you like them!

10 Day Beauty Challenge; Day Ten!

  • Day Ten; Ten Secrets.
So this might be quite hard! Im going to be honest so they're kinda like confessions? Enjoy!
  1. Most of the time, I forget to take my makeup off. Foundation, eyemakeup.. the lot! I dont actually care about this! I might sound a bit weird but I dont mind because the next day I cleanse a lot and clean my face properly. I dont wakeup with spots or anything, I have really good skin. It just doesnt bother me. 
  2. I dont have any 'high end' makeup apart from 1 MAC lipstick. I AM buying some soon, I'm improving haha.
  3. Im not amazing at applying makeup. Im not useless because I wouldnt have opened a blog and Youtube account.. but I wouldnt be able to be a makeup artist right now, just because EVERYONE needs improving on their skill! But its the one thing that I'm good at, im not good at much else!
  4. I dont have a biiiiiiiiiiig collection but its pretty good! I buy quite a bit of stuff but ive only recently bought a big collection of brushes.
  5. I only have a few eyeshadows bought from a shop.. all the others are gift sets (but they're amazing!)
...enough secrets now! I dont have anymore but the ones I said are quite.. lol.. I hope you enjoyed!

Lots of love..
