How Winged Eyeliner Prepares You For Life

Halloween Nails

Completely forgot to mention this yesterday in the rest of my Halloween wardrobe – but I found an amazing Halloween/Autumn nail varnish.

Trick or Treat? | DIY Halloween Costume

My Halloween costume was a little last minute. I would have loved to have gone all out, and done a crazy zombie or something, but in the end after spending my time going around London instead I created a witch costume with two simple accessories – a witches hat (duhh) and some great orange and…

The Most Astonishing Hand Cream Ever? | Soap&Glory Mini Review

Okay I love Soap & Glory anyway, because they have the cutest packaging, and the best names for all their products – eg. Sexy Motherpucker lipgloss, who can say no?

Make Up Revolution What You Waiting For? Eyeshadow | Mini Review
