Hi guys! I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post. A combination of health, computer issues and life getting in the way! Anyway, it’s nearly Halloween and this year I decided I would actually get some cute decorations to put around. Nothing major, though I may have my eye on some of the Spooky Town buildings for next year, and they’re all pretty small but I wanted to share them with you guys anyway.
I would have put this post up sooner, but the Matalan order took over two weeks, and I couldn’t just not include the wizard guy, he’s too cute to be left out!
I love everything Halloween, especially when it comes to makeup, so when I saw this Haunted House Eyeshadow Palette on the Makeup Revolution site I had to have it. I also love the deep reds and browns that make up this palette, it seemed like the perfect one for me. It costs £10 and is cruelty free and vegan friendly so a great budget palette that isn’t tested on animals.
As with the Rainbow Palette this has eighteen eyeshadows
with a mix of finishes, though mainly mattes. There are eight true mattes, one
with a matte base and shimmer particles, two duochromes, two I would say are
foil finishes and five shimmers with varying amounts of shimmer in them.
Overall there’s a great range of colours and finishes for any look with deep
reds or warm browns.
I have always loved the idea of special effects makeup, especially when it comes to Halloween, but I’ve always found it a bit intimidating to start. I’ve seen the Liquid Latex that Makeup Revolution have done in the past and been tempted so I thought this year I’d actually get it. I have never used anything for special effects makeup before so I can’t comment on what this is like compared to other liquid latex products but I wanted to give it a try anyway.
I think that if there was no other use for liquid latex than
special effects makeup I probably wouldn’t have been so tempted. However, as I’ve
seen it used so much when it comes to protecting your fingers in nail art I
thought this was one Halloween makeup product that I might get more use out of.
