Doll Halloween tutorial!

Did you miss me? Did you? I thought so. I’ve got another Halloween tutorial for you guys since October seems to be flying over! Before I start, I know that my eyelashes are hardly stuck on, the glue was 99p from wilkos and I cant see to put them on properly because I obviously can’t do my makeup with my glasses on. Feel free to laugh.


I threw my hair up into two bunches and put a white blouse and my unicorn jumper on to get into the doll theme. I started by just putting on some of the Simple Illuminating Radiance Cream to give me a glowy complexion and smooth over any dry patches of skin.


I then used my Smashbox Liquid Halo foundation in shade 1 with a damp sponge (use a beauty blender if you have one, but a damp makeup sponge works just as well) to dab it onto my face. I then highlighted using my usual Collection Lasting perfection concealer in “1-fair” like this-


DONE. There is also some under the hollows of my cheeks that you cant see but I promise it’s there. Just blend it in with the same sponge because you’re to lazy to go and dampen another one.


I then took this no name concealer palette and used the colour I so kindly pointed out to contour my cheekbones and the top of my forehead, nowhere else for now.


Then I used a teeny tiny bit of this cheapo mineral powder with the Real Techniques powder brush to set all of the cream products on my face and also give me a little more coverage.


I then used my Bourjois bronzer to fully contour my face, especially under my chin and along my jawline because dolls don’t have double chins. Then I put Benefits High Beam on my cheekbones and cupids bow for that extra shine.


Next I put Sleeks “rose gold” blusher just onto the apples of my cheeks and very slightly blended it back towards my ear, very slightly.


Aaaaand this is what your face should look like at this point- HI.


If like me you have oily lids and/or hooded eyes you won’t want to skip the primer! I use the Nars Smudge proof eyeshadow primer and I bloody love it.

UD mini palette

For my eyes I used this mini Urban Decay palette, I have no idea where you can get it from because it was bought as a present last year- apologies. To start I used “verve” all over my lid, up to where I would like my crease to be #hoodedeyesprobs. I then took “suspect” on a fluffy brush just above that to blend it out slightly. I then took “dark horse” on an angled brush so that I could place the colour precisely, creating a cut crease from my inner corners to the outer edge of my eyes and then blending it out. I then put “woodstock” in roughly the same place as the previous colour and kept blending until I was happy with it.


Now for eyeliner. I firstly took my super cheap and reliable white eyeliner and put that in and underneath my water line. I then used the maybelline black gel liner on an angled brush to create a thin(ish) line on the top and then underneath the white eyeliner. Then just extend it at the bottom and join it up with the top line, not winging it out because that is just too advanced.


I just used “strange” from the naked 3 palette to go over the white eyeliner for a little more pigmentation and completely under my brows.


I then used the Barry M Blink eyeliner to create fake bottom eyelashes, simples *meerkat noise*.


For my brows I actually used a stencil to make them more symmetrical. I just use this dark brown colour that looks glittery but because it’s so cheap, isn’t at all- win!


I then just added some freckles using this Urban Decay eyeliner in “whiskey”.


After failing miserably at putting on false eyelashes, you should look a little something like this. It’s weird seeing me with big eyes.


I’m not actually sure what brand these lipsticks are, possibly Collection but they are just really bright pink colours. I used the lighter one in the centre of my lips and the darker one just on the outside and on the corners, See?


Okay so that is it! I wouldn’t say that this is a quicker Halloween look but it is definitely fun! Now just for some more photos even though this post has been practically just photos….





Okay so that’s it for now! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, goodbye for now little buns!

Quick and easy vampire tutorial!

Bad evening everyone. Pffft I don’t know how to be evil or scary, who am I trying to kid? I got bored on Thursday afternoon and turned myself into a vampire in about 20 minutes, so, if you want something quick and easy for Halloween, or you are only just reading this on the 31st and are just about to walk out the door and have nothing on your face right now (and you aren’t the type to draw on whiskers and pretend you wanted to be a cat this whole time) keep reading. I promise none of the other sentences in this post are going to be that long.


I started with my regular foundation because I am pale as but if you want to then use a paler foundation than usual or even a white face paint to create your base. You want to use a foundation with a good coverage because dead people don’t have pimples or rosey cheeks. I just used this foundation from The Body Shop in shade number 2 because they didn’t have number 1. If you have any pimples pop some concealer on but don’t put any underneath your eyes, you need to embrace your dark circles just this once.


To make me a bit more pale and set my foundation I used talc. It is surprisingly good at setting foundation and white so you will look even more dead.


I used this no name palette to create most of this look, starting with a black colour that isn’t sooooo black to contour as I normally would. If you don’t own a grey or black eye shadow (why not???) then just use a cool toned bronzer to sculpt your face, but try not to put too much colour into it because you don’t want to look alive now, do you?


I then mixed together some black, purple, red and brown colours at random to create my eye look, using the same blending brush so that there was no distinct difference between the colours. I was also fairly messy as I wanted to use the fall out to worsen my dark circles. You just need to keep layering the colours and blending them out until you are happy with the result. It’s really that simple.


See? Once you are happy with your eye shadow, add a bit more. If you are going out in the evening, which I am guessing the majority of you will be, you will need your make up to be slightly darker than you intended. Now its time to add eye liner and mascara.


I used my avon glimmerstick on my waterline and then smudged it slightly on my top lashline. I made sure that I was fairly slap dash with the waterline so that it wasn’t so neat because Vampires aren’t neat, they need to get sh*t done and bite people. They don’t have time for perfect liner. I then used my Barry M showgirl mascara because I got it free with all the nail varnish I bought. It’s okay but I wouldn’t rave about it.


Ignore my wonky nose and focus on how dead I look. I also have a jumper and a dressing gown on because it’s really really cold.



Now for our brows. I just did them normally using my Benefit brow zings and then actually went over them with my Maybelline Great Lash mascara to set my brows and make them real dark to in turn make me real pale. Well, paler.


Now for my favourite part- the lips. I started by lining my lips with The Body Shops lip liner in “mahogany” and then going over that with their lipstick in “crazy sexy crimson”. For me, this was a little too red so I then went over it with the Rimmel Apocalips in “eclipse” and then tried to take pictures of me being a vampire, the key word there being tried.


If you have hooded eyes, you will need to go preeeetty high up your eye but anyone else will be okay. You lucky things. But as you can see, when you open your eyes, it doesn’t look all that crazy.




Am I a vampire yet? Ooookey dokey so that’s it for today! Bit of a late post as I went shopping as per usual. If you are planning to be a vampire in advance you could get some fake blood and/or fangs to step this up a notch. If you don’t celebrate Halloween then don’t you worry I’ll have normal posts during October too. Have a great day/night, goodbye for now little buns!
