From Edgy to Creepy to Transformative, Get Ready for Halloween!
In case you’re still not sure what you’re doing for Halloween, here are a few videos to give you some inspiration! Or, if you’re like me, just some masterful videos to enjoy. I love seeing the techniques people employ in such time-intensive looks like these. This post is in the spirit of Sunday’s Link Love, so I invite you to share the love and share a link to your favorite Halloween tutorials (that are not your own).
P.S. — Stay safe if you’re being affected by the storm! <3
I think one of the more frequently asked questions I get is about what eyeshadows to start off with from Inglot–this is a pretty impossible task! Put simply, Inglot has a ton of eyeshadows that perform well. And then, there’s the very fact that it really depends on what kind of palette you’re looking at. Neutrals? Brights? A mix? Cool-toned? Warm-toned? How large of a palette?
I love, love, LOVE!! Illamasqua’s Nail Varnish formula. For me, it’s one of the best (possibly, the best) formulas; long-wearing, great range of colors, nice consistency, and innovative. You can check out the shades I’ve reviewed in gallery format here. My all-time favorite shade is Raindrops, which was discontinued (go figure!).
While some of MAC’s recent limited edition collections may have been disappointing, there are a great deal of fabulous products available year-round. Here are just 10 (seriously, I could have easily given you a list of 50!) MAC products that I’ve loved for years and continue to love.
MAC Margin Blush — still the only blush I’ve hit pan on; it’s a warm, reddish-bronze color that’s not too bold, not too sheer
My favorite metal is rose gold. There’s something about it that’s elegant, warm, and eye-catching to me. It’s actually a color that doesn’t quite seem to be readily produced into makeup, actually–I think it’s the metallic finish.
