It’s finally Halloween and I am super excited! Tonight I am going out with some of my friends from my house to an event at the Student Union. It’s carnival themed which should be really cool. I am going to dress up as one of those creepy Mexican dolls from Dia de los muerte. So hopefully the face paint will look okay. I will try and take some pictures for you all if I can.
I thought that I would share with you some of my Halloween essentials. Firstly these super cute cat shoes! I always bring these out around this time of year. They remind me of the beautiful Charlotte Olympia ones. Another essential is my L’Oreal Elnett hairspray, the gold one. I have used this for year and I never reach for any other hairspray. I use this not only to keep my hair in place (might be doing a bit of back combing tonight!) but also once I ave finished my makeup I spray a bit of this to help everything last even longer. Like a makeup spray.
Something else that I always bring out this time of year is my Essie nail polish in the Shade Belugaria. It’s a black nail polish with really big bit of black glitter in so when on the nails it gives a really textures effect. Very Halloween!
For me, dark lips on Halloween are a must! Although this time of year even during the day I love a bit of a berry lip shade. My favourite dark lip colour is Rimmel lasting finish lipstick in Starry Eyed. This is a gorgeous dark purply berry shade that lasts on the lips for ages. The other lip colour for this time of year is a black. Much bold, but it can still look amazing. The one I have here is just a cheap one but it is very black and goes almost matte which helps it to last. Another look that you can go for is a combination of the two colours in an ombre look. I did this last year for Halloween and it looked really effective. You can check out the pictures that I took here.
So I hope that whatever you are doing tonight you have a lovely Halloween! Next we have Bonfire Night and then Christmas!! I can’t even contain my excitement, I love this time of year! xx
