Halloween is nearly here!!

I noticed that the most hits on my blog are coming from people searching for Medusa makeup, so I thought i’d post up a few pictures of my attempt and explain how I created it!

This is my version of Medusa …



The makeup that I used to create this look is as follows


Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Benefit ‘Hello Flawless’ Powder Coverage

Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder


Urban Decay Eyeshadows in Mildew, Kush and Bender

Urban Decay Stardust in Griffiths

Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Perversion

Stargazer Eyelashes in 13

Stick on green crystals from craft store

To create this makeup, I placed a pair of fishnet stockings over my head and used the various green eyeshadows to make a winged out shape out over my temples. I didn’t do this in any particular colour way, I just made sure that I matched each side by doing the same colours in the same places.

I went over the entire area with Urban Decay Stardust to make it all glittery and applied lashings of black eyeliner to the upper and lower lashes and both the waterline and the tightline, bringing the liner to a point on the inside of my eye.

I used green stick on gems from a craft store to go around the outside of the design and add extra sparkle.

I made my head-dress from a Tiara band, pipe cleaners, paper mache, green paint, green glitter spray and red stick on gems for the snakes eyes!!

I hope you have fun creating your Halloween look for 2012!

Love and Kisses

I haven’t updated you with any of my recent jewellery purchases for a while so thought i’d do a little update on the items that I am wearing the most at the moment!

As regular readers of my blog/facebook/twitter will know, I am a HUGE fan of Tatty Devine jewellery and recently I have made a few purchases that I love …

White Sugar Skull Ring & Earrings (not pictured)

You can still buy the Black Version of this ring on the Tatty Devine website here and the White earrings are in the sale here!

Before I went to V Festival I brought myself a gorgeous LARGE name necklace in Silver Glitter which read ” Smile” I loved it, sadly, it did not survive the festival and is currently in 4 pieces … I will get another one before the 2013 festival season though!

Yesterday Tatty Devine posted up pictures of their Halloween necklaces on their Facebook page, as a HUGE fan of Halloween and when I saw the ‘Bones’ necklace with the new amazing skull charm, it had to be mine!

How AWESOME is that?!

I’m now planning my Halloween makeup around this necklace and highly recommend that you visit the website or pop in to one of the stores to get your perfect Halloween accessories!

If you are as much of a fan of skull jewellery as I am then you might want to consider going to the Tatty Devine Sugar Skull workshop and make your own! You can book a place Here

Another big passion of mine is the wonderful hand made jewellery by Hayley at Diamonds and Daggers and I rarely leave the house without my wonderful one of a kind Unicorn brooch

In the 2nd picture you can also see my fabulous Blighty Love Shines necklace which is also from Diamonds and Daggers.

Hayley has recently restocked her Etsy store and you can buy her stunning sparkly delights here
