Happy Monday you lovely lot 🙂
It is officially October so we can finally discuss Halloween, no?
Halloween is something that secretly excites me-maybe too much for my age! For one, it’s new (ish) and very exotic to me as we don’t celebrate it in Greece where I’m originally from. Apart from that though, I feel like there is something very intriguing and atmospheric about the night of Halloween! I am a big softy when it comes to blood or anything remotely scary but I love watching the little ones in their costumes wandering around and I like thinking that all the little witches and their cats are out among us that night-yes I know, vivid imagination!
Every October the past few years, I make my Halloween Beauty List that includes my favourite ‘bewitched’ products! Here’s what made it to this year’s list:
Yes, yes I know… I’m obsessed with Charlotte and it’s not getting any better! But how can you look at this shadow and not fall in love? In a golden bronze shade with a metallic finish, it’s everything I need in one eye single eye shadow-magnetic cat eyes are always a plus!
If one beauty product was made with the help of witchcraft then there is no doubt that it would be the Ciate Glitter Flip lipstick! With stock back in mid-October, this product was a big hit the minute it launched, and a great example of beauty innovation. How it works? You simply press your lips together to transform the matte liquid lipstick into a shiny, sparkly glitter lip. Magic? Hell yes!
I love the bold yet elegant dark red shade of this nail polish. Sexy and striking it makes the perfect fit for wicked Halloween nails.
How not to be excited about Halloween if that means new Lush Cosmetics Halloween themed goodies?! I’m known to spend hours in the Lush shops trying to make up my mind on what to put in my basket-a very difficult task indeed! These are this year’s favourites: Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar, Bewitched Bubble Bar , Pink Pumpkin Bubble Bar , Magic Wand Soap.
There are few things I blindly trust as much as a Chanel lipstick. The quality, the texture, the comfort, the long-wearing quality and the rich colour are a lipstick lover’s dream. And this amazing shade is so intensely magnetic…
Lifestyle Edit Shout Out
This post’s lifestyle shoutout goes to the the amazing Afternoon Tea & movie combo we enjoyed with my friends at Newcastle’s Tyneside Cinema. We had a delicious Indian inspired Afternoon Tea which included goods like chocolate samosas and vanilla and chai macaroons, before watching the film Victoria and Abdul.
The movie tells the story of the special relationship between Queen Victoria and a young Indian attendant, Abdul Karim. A relationship that was frowned upon by the rest of the royal family members and after the Queen’s death in 1901, its story was deleted from the royal history. The movie was captivating and bittersweet and the acting was brilliant. Judi Dench as Queen Victoria was amazing as always.
What are your beauty go-tos this Halloween? Can’t wait to hear all about your tricks and your treats!
