Happy Halloween ! 

A friend of mine fixed their annual Halloween-party on Saturday, I participate when I’m not working and this year I was off. 

So, on a short notice, what to wear? I watched a thousand YouTube video-tutorials, Googled pictures and ideas and this is what I came up with. YouTube granted me with Alex Faction Voodoo priest-tutorial and I was keen to try it! 

Emppi took some pictures, these first two are from her 🙂 

I started with Kicks moisturizing primer and topped it with Clinique Redness solution primer. First I lined the skull with white liner amd filled it in with Grimas water activated face paint in white. 

Errmm. This one I sent to a friend, but what the doodle, I show it to you too. 

I lined the skull with Grimas kohl-liner in gray and smudged it out with some dark brown/taupe eyeshadow. I also lined my eye-area and nose. When I was happy with my blending, I darkened up the line with some black pencil liner. 

I also added some shading to the skull with pencil liners, brown eyeshadow and my contouring palette.

To my chin area I used my regular products, Clinique Redness solutions foundation and W7 contour palette. 

To my eyes, I used NYX Liquid Gold and my lid and Benefit Quick, Look busy on my crease, I also lightened my browbone with a nude shadow from Kryolan. I did my brows on my regular way, just darkened them up a little. 

Lips I lined with black pencil and used some metallic green Kryolan cream eyeshadow (I just love sample jars woth no names..) on the middle part.Finished off everything with Mehron Setting powder in translucent. 

Kimmo’s costume is a whole another story, that man loves Halloween more than I do! 

I’m so sorry about the awful lightning , but I can’t fit myself in a light box.  Here’s my whole outfit, little voodoo-doll and everything! I teased my hair and wore my HRC-hat with it. Knee-high socks, two petticoats and a black shirt, few necklaces and a bracelet, I’m happy how this turned out, in less than a week. 

My hubbys fave is made with Grimas face paints in white and black. He wore a top hat, which is missing in the picture . 

Have a horrific Halloween!

NYX Lip Lingerie 

This autumn I got the obsession, that I have to buy a brown lipstick. I want it, I need it! I’ve never tried one before, only reds, so why not buy three to try out more shades at once?

I ordered these from Pretty.fi with my own money. In the package was one golden eyeshadow too, but more of that later. 

My skin is pale, tone is in the colder side, so I went with shades that looked cool. Does this make any sence? On the picture there are, from left to right, Corset, Honeymoon and Beauty Mark. 

I did these swatches quick after receiving the ordee, without any liner or priming, so don’t shoot me! Pics are taken in natural light with my OnePlus3. 

First one up was Corset. Shade is grayish, cool, beigelike color. I could wear this in everyday use, it’s pale but still edgy enough, rather this than any pale pink for me. 

Second one is Honeymoon. This shade is just as right in between as I thought, darker than Corset but lighter than BM. Maybe not for everyday, but I really like this shade too. I need to get used to wear other than classic red, but i think I can rock this out. 

Last but certainly not the least is the Beauty Mark. It has a bit more warmth in it, but stays on the cool side. Dark, burgundy brown, which suits my pale skin perfectly. For evenings out and parties. I think it seems a bit light on my pic,  and the true shade is off, it is a bit darker in person. 

All and all, I can see myself wearing these daily, for me there are no restrictions how to look while working or just going to store. Paler shade is easier to go with, but darker one can save an otherwise tired or boring look.

Quality seems great, just what I would expect from NYX. Lip lingerie dries matte, a bit sticky, but doesn’t make a mess and stays put. Stickiness I notice when I rub my lips together, but not when I touch them with my finger. I don’t recommend these, if you have very dry lips, these show every rip and bump.

And these stick on like a flu, easiest way to remove Lip lingerie from your lips is oil or moisturizer, I noticed this while swatching. Micellar water did nothing! So I hope that it means a long lasting wear. 

4/5, scent is okay, lipstick-like but disappears soon after applying, feels a bit dry but still comfortable, wear seems long lasting and colors are awesome. You’ll be seeing a lot of these in the future!
