France In October | In Pictures- Part 1

So way back in October my parents and I headed to Hull to catch the Ferry to Zebrugge in Belgium. Over the next 2 weeks we drove many hours through Belgium and France, camping in the nights between the first 3 days to get to our friend's house in the south. Over our time there we spent many days exploring France including Dijon, Gorde, Arles and Toulouse, so here are some of the photos I took over the two weeks.

Part 2 coming in a few days.

TTFN! :) x

Last Minute 'Undead' Halloween Makeup Look | Halloween Season

I've always been obsessed with contouring, it's a necessity in my daily makeup routine. So when it came to deciding what makeup look to do for Halloween this was the first that came to mind. I don't own much in the way of 'play makeup' as I like to call it, products that are super useful when it comes to a Halloween makeup look. So for people in the same makeup situation as me and don't want to buy it just for one night, this is a look that can be done last minute with products that most makeup enthusiast would already own.

 I made it kind of messy because what undead human has flawless under eye circles? But I didn't want to try too hard and take forever making it look realistic either. Because it was messy it was actually really quick and easy to do.
I just used a dark pinky-red colour all over the lid and in the crease, then blended a dark purple into the outer corner, inner corner and all around the eye and a matte black just in the outer corner to make the socket look more hollow.

For the contour I used a contour powder for paler skin and took it all the way to the sides of my mouth and down towards my jawline to make my face look more sallow. I put a darker cream contour over the top to add more depth. I did the same down my nose but it looked a little 'muddy' so I took the brush that I used with the matte black with the left over product on it and used that to contour instead.

For the lips I just covered them in concealer to pale them up then took a dark red lipstick on an angled lip brush and drew lines on my lips to make them look dry and cracked.


And that's pretty much it. I personally like it with the winged liner even though it's not very 'dead'-like, who says you can't be undead with style?

TTFN and Happy Halloween! :) x
