Creepy doll makeup!

For this look you will need;
1. 2 thick pairs of eyelashes
2. White face paint 
3. Pink face paint
4. Brown face paint or eyeliner/eyebrow pencil
5. Red or pink lipstick

Create semi circles under the eyes from the outer corner to the tearduct with the White facepaint. Whilst waiting for this to dry, paint circles on the apples of your cheeks to give that rosy cheek doll effect. Apply eyelashes normally and then add the second pair on the line of the White semi circle. With your chosen lipstick, create a pointed upper lip and then the lower lip but make them smaller than your natural lip line. Symmetrically add freckles to each side of your face, I made three dots on each cheek for the perfect doll face. 

To finish this looks I put my hair into two high bunches and worse a knee length white dress. I wore this to a party last weekend and so many people wanted pictures and said it was a freaky Halloween look. So simple and fun to do!

Happy Halloween guys! What are you/have you dressed up as this year?!

How I clean my makeup brushes!


Washing my makeup brushes always seems last on my to do list. In an ideal world I would like to do them once a week.. Truth be told I'm lucky if I do it more than once a month. It's a really good idea to clean your makeup brushes on a regular basis-especially if you use your brushes on a daily basis. This will help prevent build ups on your skin from applying days old make up onto fresh clean skin.

I wash my brushes using luke-warm water and either a mild baby shampoo or this Clean & Clear truly gentle facial wash. It's not harsh or perfumed which is great for keeping the hairs on the brush soft and gentle and feeling brand new when you go to use them again. 

I clean them in the sink and rinse them all after. Leave them to dry over night and wake up to perfect brushes again!

What's your fave brand of makeup brush ?
