Doe a Deer || Halloween Makeup

This Halloween look was so much fun to create and I’m so happy with the final result! I’ve seen lots of people do it and I wanted to give it a try and make it my own. If I was to go all out for a Halloween party I would definitely be rocking this makeup for the night, I love it!

Step one: After applying my regular foundation routine, I used white face paint and a beauty sponge and blended it around my eyes and the bridge of my nose.

Step two: This is where you can get creative. I used brown gel eyeliner and just mapped out where I wanted everything to go. Check out Pinterest for some other peoples Deer makeup.

Step three: Using a blending brush and a matte brown shadow, I then softened up the harsh lines of the eyeliner so that it looked more 3D.

Step four: Taking dramatic spiky lashes (this is optional) I then placed them under my eye to give the illusion of “doe eyes”. I also put a regular pair of lashes on my upper lid as well.

Step five: Taking the white face paint and the back of a brush, I placed spots on the highest part of my cheek bones and in the centre of my forehead.

Step six: To give that dark brown deer like colour, I took a really dark matte bronzer and really contoured my cheek bones and temples. This step would be better before the spots but I forgot, whoops!

Step seven: For your lip colour you really can choose anything you want but I kept it simple and actually used my eyebrow pencil to outline my lips then filled with Bobbi Brown Beige lipstick.

Hope you enjoyed. Good luck!

Favourite Five: BLUSH

IMG_2958

I’ve decided I’m going to start a new series called “Favourite Five” every month on my blog. I will be focusing on 1 category of makeup and my 5 favourite brands of the product. Today’s post is focusing on BLUSH. I used to hate wearing blush because I was pretty rosy as it is. With growing up, my skin has lost some colour and I feel naked without wearing blush. These five blushes below are my MUST HAVES. I seriously love all of them. I hope it helps you guys out if your looking for a new blush.

ENJOY

MAC “WELL DRESSED”

This blush is the perfect pink. It’s light, sheer and gives you a feminine glow. It is a satin blush and seriously blends into the skin like butter. I love using this blush on a bride because it brightens the face and truly makes you look like a “blushing bride”. It’s a true light pink and looks great on lots of skin types.

MAC “DESERT ROSE”

This is the colour I recommend to everyone if they haven’t purchased a MAC blush before. It is amazing. The darker rose hues in it are so beautiful and really give you a flush of colour. It is a matte finish but is still very easy to blend and looks great on ALL skin types. It also is very flattering on mature skin since there is no shimmer or sparkle.

MAC “MARGIN”

I FREAKING LOVE THIS BLUSH. It is like a bronzer, highlighter and blush all in one. It is absolutely stunning on the skin and has a frost/sheen finish. It is my GO TO in the summer. You don’t need to use a bronzer with this since it adds darkness to your cheeks with a rosy hue.

NARS “SIN”

Sin has been my ride or die at the moment. I’m super into mauve’s and this blush is perfection. It has purple undertones but a gold sheen to it. It is stunning on an olive skin tone but looks great on all. I have been using this every day since I got it. Also, with NARS blushes they are HIGHLY pigmented, so a little goes a long way.

L’OREAL TRUE MATCH “INNOCENT FLUSH”

This peachy pink blush is beautiful on people with fair skin, blue eyes and blonde hair. It’s brightening and has a light sheen to it. It’s a very easy blush to wear and looks awesome all year round. I love using this to blend my eyeshadows in the¬†crease to bring the look together. Also, it’s super affordable which is a plus!
