Simple Halloween/Bonfire Night Make-up with MAC Cosmetics.

October and November are just the best seasons for me. I love to get dressed up all cozy, the sun shines but it's freezing cold and all the leaves change their colours which always looks super picturesque and beautiful. Oh and then there are also the two best nights of the year - Halloween and Bonfire Night! 

I was sent some super sparkly, limited edition pretties by MAC Cosmetics. a few from their Le Disko range (anyone who knows me will know i'm a HUGE Disco fan) and a few from the MAC Is Beauty range. I figured that they would be perfect for some super simple looks for this season for those who don't want to go all out or those who just want to create a cute daytime look.

'Let's Boogie' is a super beautiful dazzleshadow that has minimum fallout like I know alot of black shadows and especially glitter shadows can have. It goes on fairly light so you can layer up accordingly to how dark you actually want it, I decided to start dark and fade out without going too high up the lid and just added a little mascara and liner to give it a bit more gradient.

'Japanese Spring' is described as a dirty-pink which I LOVE and totally get. I reminded me alot of the old Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipglass, that kinda bluey-pink. I'm not a huge lipgloss fan but this was lovely and subtle and I just adored the colour and pairing it with the black.

I instantly fell in love with 'I Like 2 Watch' even in it's pot! It's a beautiful golden brown with yellow and green hints to it. The picture will never do it justice it is just gorgeous. Again there isn't much fallout - it was on my eyelashes but I loved it so never bothered to cover it with more mascara. I added 'Brassy' to my waterline and just a touch underneath too. Very Bonfire night! 
'DIVA-ISH' is an intense fuchsia with a nice creme finish to it. I love a good pink and this definitely stands out from the crowd.

I had so much fun playing with these gorgeous products so now it's time to put them to good use!

I hope whatever you do for Halloween and Bonfire night you have a (safe) and awesome time :)

Halloween Decorations with Tiger


Well we have hit October which is the BEST month, the leaves all turn, the weather gets colder and it's Halloween!

You may remember previous years where I decorated my whole flat, well now i have a house and less enthusiasm about taking it all down! I hope to go do the Pick Your Own Pumpkin thing again this year and re-do the corn maze there too!

I picked up a couple bits from Tiger this year and have some left overs from previous years to do a little decorating in the front windows and here they are:

tiger stores halloween decorations
Black Cat Lantern - £2
Black Cat Flashing LED Head - £1
The cutie cross-stitch tray is also from Tiger, I think it was £2 too!

I adore Halloween, I get to get my Ghost jumper out and have a huge array of Halloween theme socks! I also love dressing Prince up as I have every year although this year he may not be as forthcoming as he's 3 now and a little bit more independent (still a soppy mummys boy though!) 

I posted last year about how the great the ASOS Halloween range of Halloween treats and they have not disappointed again this year either! 

I'm not sure of my plans quite yet, probably junk food and cheesy horror movies. At work we are having a Black Cat Day to appreciate all our beautiful black kitties who get overlooked for other colours so if you are in the area PLEASE come along!

What are your Halloween plans?
