The only extreme makeup I do is usually for cosplaying humans from anime and what not so doing makeup for a Halloween costume actually feels strange! I haven’t legit gone full out dress up for Halloween for a while (yet I’ll be all done up for a convention.) For Halloween, I prefer wearing an accessory and using makeup to complement it. One year I just put on a headband with Shrek ears and wore eyeliner, obviously no one took me seriously so I am stepping up my game with this fox hat! I received some products from Hard Candy to play around with my Halloween look; hope you feel inspired!
It’s time to bust out the dark colours to prep for Fall (wear grey, black, brown every day!!!) and of course it’s time to dress up my nails too. I rarely wore nail polish in the summer so I’m making it up by starting to wear nail polish to suit the Autumn season. Oxblood (or wine red, burgundy, maroon..the whole dark-brown-red family) is always a popular choice, but I always like to add a touch of shine with some sparkly top coat. I received Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Wine Stock during the London Drugs Fall Preview event earlier this summer and paired it with Hard Candy’s Crush on Lava, a colour I was saving for sometime figuring out what to wear it with.
Anyone caught up with the new Sailor Moon anime remake (or is it already over?) I tried watching for a few episodes but got engrossed in a bunch of other animes (message me if you want recommendations!). I’ve got another moon that grabbed my interest, the “Under the Moon” palette from Hard Candy.
When we think of neutral palettes, our minds probably jump to the Urban Decay Naked Palette, Too Faced Natural Eyes, or the L’Oreal La Palette Nude. A new contender has joined the neutral eyeshadow palette game, and it’ll only cost you $8 USD (according to Walmart.com)- Hard Candy Natural Eyes Neutral Eyeshadow Palette.
