Halloween 2015: Zom-Babe


IMG_3618IMG_3628The other day I watched Fresh Blush’s cute pop art zombie tutorial and I knew I had to create a version of my own. I was also inspired by Mykie and Samantha’s pop art zombies.

This kind of look is super simple and you don’t have to spend loads either. I used Snazaroo for the body and UV face paint for the green, the rest of the detail is eyeshadows that I had lying around. Just be careful if you’re off out in Snazaroo, it will come off with water, but it doesn’t really transfer otherwise.

Products used:

Snazaroo Purple
OCC Creme Colour Concentrate in Bauhaus
Illamasqua Skin Base in White
MUFE HD Powder
Sugarpill Tako Eyeshadow
Sugarpill Poison Plum Eyeshadow
Iris Phee’s Mineral Shadow
Dead Weight Phee’s Mineral Shadow
Green UV Face Paint
Tell It To The Frogs Phee’s Mineral Shadow
Mariposa Pressed Glow Highlight Powder
Makeup Geek Corrupt Powder Eyeshadow
Coda Phee’s Mineral Shadow

Earth Collection Launch Event Look

Last night I had the pleasure of joining Illamasqua Meadowhall to do a live demo of the new Earth Collection. This was my first time doing makeup on another person and now it’s all I want to do!

For the thousandth time, thank you to Illamasqua for asking me to do this, the Meadowhall team for helping me out on the day, Suzy for being a patient model and Becky for being an awesome photographer!

Full product list will be at the end of this post.



Illamasqua Earth Collection Launch at Debenhams Meadowhall

So this is different but super awesome at the same time. On Thursday 27th August I’m going to be doing a live makeup demo at Illamasqua’s Sheffield Meadowhall counter in Debenhams to celebrate the launch of their new Earth collection.

From 6:30pm me and the Illamasqua Meadowhall team will be around to chat about the new collection and answer any questions that you might have about Illamasqua products in general and I’ll be demoing all the new products too. If you’re in Sheffield or nearby it’d be lovely to meet you! :)

I love NARS, and I love an unusual blusher shade so it’s hardly surprising I ended up with this limited edition blusher from NARS’s autumn winter collection. I’m going to keep this short and sweet because my Lush post was pretty lengthy.

As will all NARS compacts the matte rubbery texture that picks up every bit of fluff and finger print drives me insane even if it is very pleasing and minimal. The colour itself isn’t your typical blush shade. It’s more of a highlight, especially for darker skin tones. Either way, the shimmer is really fine so it doesn’t come across glittery.

If you love a good highlight, I’d recommend snapping Tribulation up as it is limited edition.

Lush Oxford Street Products

No doubt when Lush opened their new Oxford Street store, every Lushie up and down the country began drooling over the tonne of exclusives that were released to celebrate. But more importantly people started asking “WHEN will these start appearing in other Lush stores?!”.

Well, now you don’t have to make the journey to London to discover the wonders of the Oxford Street store as a little piece – pieces – of the magic made its way to shops up and down the country last Friday. Naturally I went into Lush Sheffield for a nosey and to pick up some henna, and ended up leaving with a bunch of new products to try.
