'Helz Halloween'


Hi everyone, I just wanted to share with you some of the photos I took at the 'late' Halloween party my friends and I had last Saturday.  It was a fun crazy night and a good time was had by all of us :-)  I was hoping to get this post up on Thursday, but my laptop decided it was going to have a break from being any form of useful and gave me a very worrying 24hours!  Thankfully, we're back on track and all is well, computers omg!!! :-/


The decorations that my friend Helz and I bought a couple of weeks ago, looked really great and didn't take us long to put up before we started getting ready on Saturday evening.

We had a black spiderweb table cloth with looked really great over my friends red cloth, I scattered Halloween confetti over the table and my friend added some cool skull lights, which looked amazing with the lights off. . .


. . . So did the lanterns I made; I used plastic cups, printed out some silhouette images I found on google and stuck them on the cups, then I just added little battery tealights underneath.


I thought they were a really quick and easy decoration to make and they look great too.  I also printed out little Halloween food labels and stuck them on cocktail sticks, which we added to the nibbles. . .


. . . And I designed and made this phone case from an idea I spotted on pinterest.  I think it's just so cute and again it was quite easy to do, plus everyone seemed to like it which was also really nice :-)

We had lots of tasty nibbles and my little 'creepy cupcakes' and chocolate cookies went down a treat! ;-)



There were really great costumes and some people really went to town with some very hilarious and creative ideas! :-D





For my costume I decided to go with a black cat look.


I got the ear-headband and tail from a shop on ebay, which I think was only about £3.  I wore shiny black leggings, a black sequin t'shirt and my black leather ankle boots.  I also made a black lace collar with a diamante heart charm on and matching wrist cuffs.


For my makeup, I used the beautiful Max Factor Excess Eye Shimmer in Crystal all over the lid, I used a little mixture of shimmery grey shadows in the outer corner of my eyes from the Technic Smokey palette (I love these palettes).  For my eyeliner and cat features, I used the lovely Collection 24 hour Extreme felt liner, which made it really easy, I also used the liner on my top lip too.  I then added some Eylure false lashes, my favourite Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara and I used my Maybelline Color Drama lip pencil in Minimalist on my bottom lip.


We had a good laugh and I really enjoyed myself.  Sadly there were a few people that couldn't come along which was quite disappointing, but we're already planning next years scare fest, so bony fingers crossed, they can all party with us then!


Not entirely sure why I'm so pale on this pic, and where did my eyebrows go lol!

I hope you all had a great Halloween whatever you decided to do :-)
Until Next Time Stay Happy
