October 31st - Halloween Party

Hi everyone, just a quick post today to tell you a little about the Halloween party I went to on Friday night.

I went with my two of my lovely friends, this is a picture of me with my friend Helz.  My other friend politely mentioned she would rather not be revealed to the entire population on the internet, so I will just refer to her as FB.  I know you will both read this at some point so I just wanted to say a big thank you to both of you for coming with me, it was so nice to have you there and for you both to make such a brilliant effort with your costumes, you both looked wonderful and FB it meant so much because I know you really went out of your way to come along with me, so thank you :-)

Ok, so here's just a few pics of the costume I wore, I went with the Fallen Angel theme I spoke about in my Diy Costume Ideas post one Wednesday.

I was lucky enough to spot this gorgeous black gothic lace dress from a gothic clothing wholesaler in Manchester, you can find it for sale on Amazon.
I also wore lace tights from New Look, tall black boots and black fingerless lace gloves which I've had for a while and black gel nail stickers from Wilkinsons.

The black lace beaded choker I made myself and the cross (which you can see in some of the other pictures) is just one I've had for ages, I love it though and thought it would be perfect :-)

My wings were originally black mesh butterfly wings, but with the help of my good friend FB, a little reshaping and lots of added netting, we came up with these amazing tattered angel wings, I was really happy with them :-)

For my makeup, I recently got the Makeup Revolution Give Them Nightmares eyeshadow palette and have been longing to use it for this look, so most of the eyeshadows I used are from that.

For my base, I started with my usual current Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, then added Collection concealer and Kick Ass powder, I didn't use any blusher and tried to contour a little with dark grey eyeshadow for a spooky look but it didn't really work too well, oh well!

I added some false lashes which I got from Poundland then went over the band with the Collection Extreme 24 hour felt liner in Black and dabbed over the top of that with my favourite black eyeshadow by Natural Collection in Midnight.  And of course my beloved Seventeen Doll'd Up Mascara to finish off my eye look.  This was the very first time I've worn false lashes and it certainly took some practise but I really enjoyed wearing them :-)

For my lips I used the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kajal liner in 001 Black to line my lips and create a good dark base.  I went over that with the Collection Work The colour Eyeshadow pencil in Midnight Glam to give a dark shimmer and then I finished off with a light covering of Makeup Revolution's Atomic lipstick in Make Me Magnificent, which is such a beautiful purple shine!

It was a really fun night, I've not been out for Halloween for many years and I've really missed it, I loved dressing up in the costume too.  I'd love to hear what you got up to on All Hallows eve, so let me know in the comments below.  Until Next Time Stay Happy
