Spooky Makeup Days! FEATURE: 🎃 A Week of Halloween Tutorials 2017

Hello Fellow Readers

Feel that ghoulish feeling in the air?  It’s October!
Which means my favorite calendar event has come around again: Halloween!!!!

Anyone could probably guess by now that if you give me a chance to dress up, I am in my happy place. Nothing’s changed over the last 7 to 8 years for my YouTube channel either.

If you didn’t know it was Halloween week on my channel? I thought I would share the wrap up of my makeup looks here on my blog JUST in case you missed any or maybe you didn’t know about them in the 1st place and you might be interested in watching?!

A variety of looks went up this year from light to dark, even SPX this year too!
Here’s what I posted.





Thank you for stopping by to read my post and if you decided to watch any of these halloween looks I crea…

Hello Fellow Readers!

So here I am just to update my blog readers (you guys) on the high-points of this past month video wise of the content I created that I love to just share with you all. Now if your subscribed to my YouTube channel then you might know that I am very active on YouTube - posting new videos every week and about 3 new videos to be exacted in a week.

But I wanted to give a quick round-up of 5 videos that I think you may be interested in,  if you’ve missed them in your subscription feed or if your just overwhelmed by what to watch next then maybe my 5 favourite videos I have uploaded this month is a place to start.

Where to start tho! well…. for the 1st time "I wasn't late to the party" meaning I was in the “hype time” to review something this was a little exciting for me not gonna lie as this almost never happens for me as I live outside the U.S. and product launches are often later!

If you're wondering what I'm hinting about, I am naturally takin…


Hello fellow readers,

So, I am no stranger to dying my hair a different color somewhat, but over the past 13 months I have literally changed my hair color every 3 odd months... crazy I know and not something I'd advised to do yourself.

But I have wanted what I love to call "Ariel Red Hair" referencing from the famous Disney Princess for the longest time, that bright pop of red just excites me. It is SO different and can make you facial features pop like you eye color as an example or your cheekbones can look softer or more harsh just depending.... all this just from what color hair you choose. absolutely!

Personally having very black hair, I have always been scared of bleaching my hair. I know the darker your hair color is the more damage you will have to go through to get your hair into the color you want it. Now I have done the ombre look with my hair, which in my case involved you guessed it bleaching the ends of my hair or the color just wouldn't show up. Over th…


Hello fellow readers,

Who doesn't love color even just a single shade of green say? or red maybe? and what about blue?.

Color can do so much, especially with makeup wethers it is a bright bold lip color or an eyeshadow look. It can make any day feel like summer. So I decided to play with color just for fun this week and what better way to inject color into your makeup then with the use of the full spectrum palette by Urban Decay and well.... also a few other of my favorite palettes to add the odd shade of peach and natural creamy shade for the brow bone area. I didn't want to go all out 80's with the glitter or faded blue brow bone color. Yikes.... not today!

Hello Fellow Readers,

Today's video is a makeup tutorial using the Marc Jacobs Night Owl Palette, this style eye-con palette contains beautiful shades like a true Aztec gold, a mermaid turquoise blue, soft beige gold, as well as your typical neutral shades like dark brown, cream and a midnight black shade.... Oh and did I mention a gorgeous deep taupe plum shade, that's fairly unique.
All in all this palette is a lovely "night" appropriate palette giving you easy to create looks for a night out on the town or for going on a date. But I've personally never lived by the limitations of any palette, so if you wanna rock that smokey eye during the daylight hours.... then you do you!

As I mentioned in the tutorial please note these shades are a little harder to work with, don't let that worry you I only mean to say that you'll have to do a little extra blending. Their not as creamy and easy to blend as many of the other palettes we have come to use and love as …


Hello Fellow Readers,

Ah! there is nothing quite like cake face right?? I am only joking! 
But seriously a full face of a makeup doesn't have to feel or look like "cake face" if you know what you're doing. Now I personally love a full coverage foundation all the time as, it gives you the option to make your base look like skin using only an amount that would mean light to medium coverage or you can go all out and wipe the slate clean and give yourself that barbie winning skin.

If you have more oily skin these techniques will work for you too as well if you have drier skin, a little tip just incase powder scares you due to having dry skin.... a hydrating setting spray is your answer as your last added step to this tutorial.

Hello Fellow Readers!

So as the title above suggests it's a fresh new look on my channel, with a new background and a few other little changers behind the scenes for my Youtube Channel.
What prompted all of this.... well I turned a year older (now 28) and I tend to revaluate things, I especially wanted to take a look at my channel and make a change in the background etc.

So, I went past my videos from over the last 7 years and looked at how the video looked and such. Now having a WAY better camera and lighting setup these days dose help me but something was missing. I felt I was being lost in translation for being a beauty channel these past 2(ish) years with the busy background I used to have, seeing this I knew it needed a change.
I found a video from a few years back (2014) when my channel was doing really well and my background was simple and girly just the lace. SO I decide for that as my background once again with a few add mod-cons for it being 2017.

Check the video out her…
