Halloween Makeup // Clown 

Halloween is my favourite time of year and occasionally, I enjoy to dabble in a bit of facepaint and Halloween makeup looks. I know clowns are often people’s biggest fear, so this clown is hardly a scary clown but more of a fashionable friendly clown just looking to blend in with the crown on a Halloween evening. 

With that, it’s also a fairly straight forward look that almost everybody can do! This look is used with both makeup and face paint. If you don’t have face paint to hand, an eyeliner could also be effective but I prefer face paint. 

For this look you could make this anyway you specifically want and I think big, fluffy eyelashes would look perfect with this look. To start just do your normal foundation/concealer routine, I added a small amount of bronzer as well but generally the look is fairly basic. I then went ahead and done a dark smokey eye, not really being all that tidy with it and especially making it extra smokey on the lower lash line. I did my brows normally, added mascara and a thin strip of liner and that’s is for the makeup side. 

For the added extras that make the clown look, I went ahead and used a black paint with a thin tip brush and created the tall triangles above the brow and making it thinner towards the end. Then placing a small dot at the top. I used concealer to tidy it up and make it really clean. I then applied a small line from the lower lash line and bringing it down, again ending it with a dot. 

For the next step you’ll need a careful hand but you can use concealer to clean it up. From the top of the cheek bone start to create the lines across to the nose. Don’t worry about blending at this point, just try and make sure you get these lines on either side as closely as possible. Once you’ve achieved these lines, use a fluffy brush and a black eyeliner to smokey out the lines, you don’t want them too far down your face so slowly do it and gradually pick more product up until you’ve reached your chosen look. After this add a black circle to the tip of your nose. 

For the lips, add a red lipstick or any that you choose. Then either a black lip pencil or black face paint and create the liner of the lips and drag them out either side to make your lips more clown like. Again, blend it away with a black eyeshadow. Blend away until your hands fall off! 

I would definitely apply a setting spray to keep this look totally in tact throughout your night of partying and enjoying all of the halloWeen fun!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Tutorial 

Recently I’ve loved to explore with my shadows and eye looks. Although I’ve been loving the ABH Modern Renaissance palette I thought I’d go back to my Top Faced Sweet Peach Palette and create a purple/gold halo eye with a sharp wing. 

This eye look is perfect for a night out with the ladies or even a date night. It’s really flattering and sexy looking, perfect for when you’re feeling fun. 

I went ahead and started with concealer to prime my lids. I used the Maybelline Age Rewind but you can use whatever you have. I then went over and set it using the shade ‘Peaches ‘N Cream’. 

Using a fluffy crease brush I used ‘Puree’ in the crease and dragging it out to make my eyes look more cat like. Next I went in with ‘Delectable’ in the inner corner and outer corner. I do this by taking a small precise brush and adding small pigment at a time, constantly blending and adding until I got my preferred look. I then added ‘Luscious’ to the inner halo and connecting the shade ‘Delectable’ by dragging either side through the crease. Again, adding more of ‘Luscious’ to intensify the took. To finish, I highlighted my inner corner and brow bone with ‘White Peach’. 


I then went ahead as used the Maybelline Master Precise liner to add a sharp, dramatic wing. I added plenty of mascara and some fluttery, flirty lashes to perfect the look. To finish I dragged ‘Delectable’ under the eye, remembering to drag it up towards the liner and out to make it a more cat eye effect. 

There we have a simple but beautiful halo eye!

Book Review // The Start of Me and You 

The second book I read by Emery Lord was called The Start of Me and You. I’ll admit, it wasn’t as good as When We Collided but still very enjoyable. 

At a very young age, Paige suffered the loss of her boyfriend and never thought she would feel the same again. Eventually, life had to change and she realised that there was a lot of things that she wanted to do and no longer wanted to be stopped from doing them. The new school year began and it was time for her to make those changes, but will she ever be able to swim if she doesn’t dive? 

The book was just as lovely as When We Collided by Emery Lord. Although I did prefer the other novel, I must admit that I like the character of Paige. She actually reminded me of myself and the things I realised when I knew my life had to change because of anxious thoughts and holding myself back. I love that again, Emery Lord has written in a character who is homosexual and I think that’s such a wonderful aspect to her books because she shows that she is so accepting of everybody’s background and lifestyle choices.

TOP 5 TV SERIES

I’ve surprised myself by not ever posting and sharing my favourite TV shows… I’ve been blogging for nearly a year and I’ve never shared these with you?! WEIRD.

I’m guilty of spending hours of my life binge watching TV series and eating snacks.. more than once a week and I don’t feel bad about it if I’m honest. I find it is such a relaxing thing to do and I’ll always do this when I’m at my most stressed or in the mood to procrastinate. I definitely have my go to shows that I always lean towards more than others and I thought I would share with you guys some of my favourite shows and maybe give you some new TV to watch. Here we go! I hope you guys enjoy. 

#1 One Tree Hill has always been a favourite and I love going back to watch it when I’m feeling down. I especially enjoy seasons 4-9, not really sure why I just enjoy those seasons more than others. I love the story lines and how different each character are in comparison to each other. 

#2 Gossip Girl is almost everybody’s favourite, who doesn’t love a bit of Chuck and Blair lovin’? I know I do! I really enjoy watching the fun relationship between Chuck and Blair and especially the drama they go through.

#3 The Vampire Diaries has been one of my favourites for so long and now it’s finished forever I haven’t really known what to do with myself. It’s so dramatic.. (can you see the theme of my faves?) and I love the little myths and story behind each character. I bloody love me some Salvator brothers. 

#4 Brooklyn Nine-Nine is so bloody good and funny! It’s incredibly easy to watch and I continue to enjoy each episode regardless of how many times I’ve seen it. 

#5 F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Who doesn’t love this show?! I KNOW I DOOOO! Matt and I watch this show on repeat and I find it’s the best thing to watch when I’m sleepy and it always manages to cheer me up. 

All of these shows, but F.R.I.E.N.D.S are on Netflix and I couldn’t be without my subscription to Netflix. Let me know some of your faves so I can give them a watch.
