Happy #Halloween | The Halloween Tag

LoveLaughsLipstick Blog - Halloween Tag

1. What’s your favourite horror movie?
I haven't watched a scary film in aaaaages - I'd say some of my favourites are the old classics, such as Jeepers Creepers and Scream; the ones you used to watch with your mates at sleepovers.

2. What's your favourite non-scary movie to watch around Halloween?
Borat, obviously. And also to watch all year round.

3. Do you have any Halloween traditions?
For the past few years, I've carved a pumpkin. Before that, my only traditions were to go out and get smashed and / or avoid leaving the house before Halloween, to avoid getting egged on Mizzy Night.

4. What are your plans for Halloween this year?
I went to a Halloween House Party this weekend and I carved my pumpkin on Friday, to get into the festive spirit. Also, painted my nails and toenails a creepy red colour. Enjoyed Halloween this year, as I got to dress up, LEAVE THE HOUSE TO SOCIALISE WITH OTHER HUMANS and play spooky party games.

5. What are you dressing up as this year?
I was a cat this year. My other costume options are too small for me, given I'm now the size of a house.

6. What’s your first memory of Halloween?
Going Trick or Treating with my friend in Primary School, Lucy. Her Mum painted our nails black and it was the first time I'd ever worn nail polish. I was buzzing.

7. What's your favourite scary TV series?
I don't really watch any, in all honesty. Hollyoaks can be a bit spooky, sometimes [hahaha I'm so lame] - well, Hollyoaks Later.

Happy Halloween, guys! Hope you enjoyed this tag - let me know your answers below

Easy #Halloween Makeup #3 - Creepy Cobwebs

I'm no mua. I just about manage to make my face look presentable on a day-to-day basis; the struggle is real. BUT it's Halloween and in order to get into the festive spirit, I've bashed together a few easy makeup looks over the past few days to [hopefully] inspire you [or failing that, just make you laugh at how sh*t they are] and this post is the latest in the series. Details of any accessories used in this series of posts can be found here, in case you're interested. Now let's get crackin'.

Easy Halloween Makeup #3 - Creepy Cobwebs

Lovelaughslipstick blog - Halloween Cobweb Makeup Looks


First off, I feel I need to apologise for the kinda smudgey / sparse eyeliner in places in these images. And the massively sh*t spiders. I could have used a finer liner, I could have tried harder and I could have got this a million times more precise [which would have looked a million times better] but to be frank, I couldn't be arsed scrubbing it all off once I'd started. It's not too shabby though, right? I was quite happy how this turned out.

Once again, alls you really need is eyeliner to create this cobwebby makeup look. I used a dark Morphe eyeshadow on my eyes and blended it ferociously, before attacking with highlighter. My eyes are lined to hell and back with black kohl eyeliner and liquid liner too; as well as boasting TWO PAIRS of falsies for a super dramatic look. I have a pair of my favourite Lash Unlimited #9 lashes on my bottom lash line and a pair of Ardell lashes on my top lash line. Before I applied the falsies, I layered on Mac's False Lash Effect mascara and drew spiders and cobwebs galore around my eyes with liquid liner. My lips are a TOTAL disaster, but I tried to do an ombre type look with black liner smudged in with Mac's Ms Diva lip pencil.

You could do so much more with this look if you wanted to - it has tonnes of potench. You could stick cute little body gems in the cobwebs, use stick-on crystals to make the spiders' bodies and lash on loads of fabulous glitter - but yeno, I'm poor and don't have any of these things. So that's the best I could rustle together for ya today, folks.

What do you think of this look? Easy, right? What are you going as for Halloween this year?

Easy #Halloween Makeup #2 - Creepy Dead Girl

Yes, I couldn't think of anything particularly smooth to call this look. 

Soz for the insanely lame title. Like, I don't really know what this look even is, to be honest. It's just another way to wear fake blood, I guess. And your eyes wouldn't be bleeding like that if you were alive. And it's creepy & I'm a girl. Boom

And on that disasterous opening note.... Hello and welcome to my second easy Halloween Makeup look post. I'm no mua [by any stretch of the imagination] so if you like the look of any of the makeup styles in this lead up to Halloween series; it's a guarantee you'll be able to do them too. All most of them really need is a bit of eyeliner, and BOOSH; you've got yourself a costume. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog over the next few days too - I've bashed together quite a few easy makeup looks pre-Halloween to [hopefully] inspire you [or failing that, just make you laugh at how sh*t they are.] Details of any accessories used in this series of posts can be found here, in case you're interested, too.

Easy #Halloween Makeup #2 - Creepy Dead Girl

I never normally do particularly gruesome looks for Halloween; I'm really squeamish and would probably vom at the sight of myself. Today's look is probably as far as I'd go with fake blood - 1] because I'm a massive chicken and 2] because that sh*t STAINS your skin like there's no tomorrow. But anyway, here's a bloody, dead, corpse-y kinda look I bashed together for #HalloweenSixteen. It's proper easy to achieve and you don't need any special tools or SFX makeup to create this look - just your regular makeup collection and some fake blood.

Lovelaughslipstick blog - Halloween Creepy Makeup Looks

I was quite impressed with how this turned out, truth be told. I put on my usual foundation and setting powder first, then applied white, shimmery highlighter (from Technic Cosmetics) all over my face. I contoured my nose, chin and cheek bones with some black shimmery Morphe eyeshadow and blended. Next, I used a mix of red and blue eyeshadow on my eyelids and crease to give my eyes a dead, sunken kinda look; before attacking with lots of black eyeliner, mascara and LashUnlimited falsies in their #9s

I have Mac Diva on my lips. For the blood under my eyes, I first outlined the trickles with black eyeliner, before colouring in the shape I created under each with a small makeup brush and a red eyeshadow. This acted as a base for the imminent attack of fake blood; to minimise its staining power on my skin. I then applied some of the Smiffys fake blood spray I had left over from last year, using a small makeup brush [an old one that I could throw away after using.] Taking this brush, I began dabbing it on to build a crusty, thick and textured look. And then indulged in about a million spooky selfies.

What do you think of this look? Easy yet effective, right? What are you going as for Halloween this year? Got any parties on the cards?

Keep your eyes peeled on the blog this week for other Halloween posts going live daily. Featuring lots more awkward selfies and crappy makeup attempts, obv [#winning.]

Easy #Halloween Makeup #1 - Creepy Cat [of the Domestic & Big Cat Variety]

I'm no pro mua. In fact, it took me an age to figure out what mua even meant; during that phase in life where every girl seemed to have it at the end of their Facebook name. BUT it's Halloween and in order to get into the festive spirit, I've bashed together a few easy makeup looks to [hopefully] inspire you [or failing that, just make you laugh at how sh*t they are.] Details of any accessories used in this series of posts can be found here, in case you're interested.

Easy Halloween Makeup #1 - The Creepy Cat

I'll be honest; if I do Halloween, I normally go as a cat. Mainly because it's an easy costume - but also, because I'm a bit of a crazy cat lady, the outfit is pretty cute & doesn't make you look like a sack of sh*t and it's roughly Halloween related. I have a few pairs of cat ears [and even a tail] on standby; and other than that, all you really need is an eyeliner. Here's a couple of cat inspired looks I've bashed together for #HalloweenSixteen. They're proper easy, pretty flattering and the beauty is that you don't need any special tools or SFX makeup to create them.

Basic Kitty

This look is suuuuuuper quick and easy to do. Alllllll about that liquid eyeliner life. The nose is shaded in with a pinky-lilac shade from one of my Morphe palettes, I've gone wild with highlighter from Technic Cosmetics and of course, my lashes are #9s from LashUnlimited. The rest of my face is just drawn on with my favourite Bourjois liquid eyeliner, tbh. A basic look for a basic biatch [me.] My lace choker is from LASULA and I thought it looked like a cute little collar as part of this look. Teamed with a black outfit, cat tail pinned on my bum and this black headband with ears, it's a simple and easy and look - which is quick to get off your face once the night is done.

Leopard

I've never tried to create anything like this before, but it was surprisingly easy. I know mine looks like a pile of sh*te compared to all the ones on YouTube; but I'm not a mua [or anything close to it] - so if I can create this look [with my novice level of skill] I'm pretty sure you guys will be able to do it too; even better than me. 

I plastered my face in an orangey-bronze loose pigment from Peaches and Cream, using a neutral base eyeshadow from Makeup Revolution to add lighter tones to my forehead and cheeks and my Technic highlighter. Next, using a black kohl eyeliner, I drew on my leopard spots; before using my smallest Crownbrush to dab another loose Peaches and Cream pigment into their inners, to lighten them. Liquid eyeliner achieved the rest of the details on my face. I also used a little NYX bronze eyeliner in my eyelid crease and a lipstick I got in an old Birchbox to finish the look.

#Halloween Inspo & Details

I'm not a pure mua. Granted, I do okay in making my face look presentable, but I wouldn't say I'm great at it. Therefore to kick off my run up to Halloween posts special, I'll spare you the obligatory awkward selfies [until tomorrow] [with half of Smiffys smeared across my face and obligatory cat ears, obv] and today, I'll show you some cute little seasonal beauty & fashion accessories I've picked up instead. Hopefully these picks will inspire you with your final costume decision [and save you a ton of £.] 

Creepy doesn't always have to be crappy OR tacky guys - in fact, you don't have to dress up as anything particularly scary at all if you don't want to - there's no wrong way to do Halloween. You don't have to drizzle a litre of fake blood across your body if you don't want to; if you want to be a mouse [duhh] a la Mean Girls, go 'ed. Just do you, boo. The below picks are definitely on the prettier side of scary - there'll be no nightmares here, folks.

Lovelaughslipstick blog Halloween Inspiration and Fashion Beauty Accessories

Here's a few accessories anyway which I've picked up this Halloween, which will definitely help me formulate a costume plan of my own [if I ever leave the house and be social with other humans, like.] Expect to see some of these crop back up in the makeup posts I have planned for the week.


Lovelaughslipstick blog Halloween Inspiration and Fashion Beauty Accessories Topshop Matte Nails

Lovelaughslipstick blog Halloween Inspiration and Fashion Beauty Accessories Topshop Matte Nails

TopShop Chrome matte nail polish. Might not be an obvious choice for Halloween, but if you'd rather avoid rocking black nails this season, it's a great alternative. This particular shade is pretty grungey [making it ideal for Halloween] but also very on point. Its metallic, space-age, shimmering appeal also means it would work really well as part of a robot / alien / mermaid type costume.

Lovelaughslipstick blog Halloween Inspiration and Fashion Beauty Accessories New Look Gold Cat Ears Headband

How pretty are these gold, New Look gold cat ears?! I actually won these on Twitter - but I'm pretty sure you can still pick these up in stores now. These little ears are proper like, all the goals - for wear throughout the year and not just Halloween. These would be nice to wear if you dress up as a lion or a tiger; as the gold of the headband will look well with gold glitter.

Lovelaughslipstick blog Halloween Inspiration and Fashion Beauty Accessories eBay black Cat Ears Headband

These black cat ears cost me about a quid [if that] off eBay this time last year. They're pretty simple, not massively too small on my MASSIVE CRANIUM and can be worn for a number of cat-inspired costumes. Absolute statement in the old fancy dress wardrobe, these.

There's nothing really scary about this floral cat ears headband at all, it's just super pretty and I couldn't not have it / feature it here. Although it's probably more suitable for Summer and Festival season, these little ears have definite pretty, girly potential for some kind of dress up. I picked these up from Forever21 for about £2.49 recently.

These nails, believe it or not, were just £1 for a set of 24 from Primark. I really love them - it's the first time I've ever worn pointed talons, but I can now TOTES see the attraction. You guys seemed to love them too over on Instagram - so when news gets around that they're only £1, I predict mass hysteria. The glue you get with these is pretty good too - I really can't fault them; especially for the price.

Lovelaughslipstick blog Halloween Inspiration and Fashion Beauty Accessories Halloween Makeup B&M Bargains

This might not be pretty, but it's necessary come Halloween! I picked up this fake blood spray from B&M Bargains for £1. Job done. In the past, I've used Smiffys blood sprays - which were good, but this was a fraction of the cost and is therefore classed as winning in my book.

When it comes to fancy dress, the more dramatic the lashes, the better - and LashUnlimited won't let you down. I go all out at Halloween - strip lashes on my upper and lower lashlines, and these guys have some amazing styles to complete your look. With multi-buy offers available on all styles and super low price tags. FAV STORE EVER.

Well, this is a bit sexy, isn't it! It's black lace, sultry and mysterious - and I got it off Depop for like, £2.50. I thought this was perfect for a Halloween costume or creepy Masquerade Ball. I'm pretty sure this is a cat mask - but you could wear it and claim it was any other animal really [within reason] such as a sexy fox or badger or something. Similarly [and still very much on the bargain wagon] Asda do multi-packs of lace masquerade masks for a quid. Thank me later [with cash, bourbon biscuits & makeup, plz.]

Keep your eyes peeled to the blog this week, for daily posts in the run up to Halloween with different makeup ideas. You might find these posts useful; or you might just read them to have a good lol at my awkward selfies and below average makeup skills - but have a check back tomorrow, either way.

#Giveaway - 2 Year Blog-aversary Celebrations

On this day, exactly two years ago, I was sat in bed recovering from surgery - and keeping Milka in business with the amount of chocolate I was nibbling on. It was during this time of extreme duvet appreciation that I thought about starting a blog, to keep me busy. And also, as a way to meet people and remain social; during a time when I couldn't walk and real-life friends were pretty thin on the ground.

And here I am today - two years later, with LLL blog still going strong and you guys continuing to tolerate my mad ramblings about being poor, loving cheese and living off bourbon biscuits. 

Blogging has meant so much to me over the past few years. It's allowed me to write [a massive passion of mine], express myself online, collaborate with & discover cool new brands and it has introduced me to some lovely girls who I class as friends; not just 'bloggers'. When I got messed around on NYE, you guys were there to keep me company and make me feel supported. When good things, bad things or downright hilarious things have happened; your blogs, tweets, supportive comments and funny messages have allowed me to share these moments with you.

BLOGGERS, YOU NEED TO SEE THIS > Little Known Box*

I love a good beauty box. I love the whole experience - the packaging, unwrapping it all from the tissue paper and seeing which products you've been treated to this month... plus learning more about the brands involved. I'd previously subscribed to BirchBox and GlossyBox, but found them to be very hit and miss. And mostly miss, let's be honest. Though [ironically] they look to have improved since I cancelled my subscriptions last year, I was always left disappointed with them when I was a customer [especially with GlossyBox.] 

I definitely prefer smaller, more independent beauty boxes [such as the Blogger Beauty Box I tried last month] as I think so much more effort and thought is put into them, rather than with the pure massive corporations beasting these boxes out. And I've found the perfect beauty box for EVERY BEAUTY BLOGGER OUT THERE which is just that. The Little Known Box.

Lovelaughslipstick fashion beauty lifestyle blog little known box review

Little Known Box is the UK’s newest luxurious beauty subscription box. Each box contains 5-6 products; to discover, try and enjoy at home. In addition to monthly subscriptions, they also offer gift subscriptions and one-off boxes, providing you with a truly flexible beauty subscription experience! Little Known Box pride themselves on featuring and introducing you to breakthrough products from upcoming, niche and independent brands. Their aim is to show you something different and change how we discover new beauty; whilst supporting upcoming brands, who offer some of the best premium, effective and innovative products on the market. 

Little Known Box noticed that emerging and small luxury brands were being under-represented in beauty subscription boxes, which is why they launched theirs! They aim to fix that and introduce you to some fantastic little-known brands, such as those specialising in niche beauty fields including; natural/organic, vegan friendly, cruelty free and free-from brands. Each brand they feature is carefully selected and their boxes include full and sample size luxury products from skincare, makeup, hair, body and grooming products to nail care, nail art, lifestyle and beauty accessories (with the occasional surprise thrown in!) Although you might see some well known brands featured, the products from these brands will be little-known or new launches! 

Lovelaughslipstick fashion beauty lifestyle blog little known box review

I honestly think this is the perfect box for bloggers. Why?

- As bloggers, we love to sniff out the next big thing; the next brand that's about to make it big, the product we can definitively class as the best thing we've ever tried, the innovative new beauty tool we tried out on a whim & now couldn't cope without. The absolute beauty behind the Little Known Box is that it gives you a chance to do exactly that. With this box, you get to try stuff that you perhaps would never have heard of otherwise; keeping you on trend and able to publish breaking news on something others will probably have never tried too

- I can only speak for myself, but as a blogger and human EXTREMELY bad at budgeting, I AM POOR. You can subscribe to this service monthly, OR you can buy yourself a box as a one-off; which is fab for me as you're not legally bound to purchase every month and there's no pesky direct debit scheme to remember. It's a reasonably priced service and a great gift idea

- The packaging is stunning and so, so Instagrammable. The black and gold theme is so classy - it's pretty much impossible to take a bad photo of it

- It introduces you to new and upcoming brands who you can connect with on social media - which again, as bloggers, may well lead you to further opportunities.

Little Known Box very kindly sent me their September box - which I instantly fell in full on love with and which you can pick up as a one-off here. Their October box is out now - and is a special six-month anniversary edition which promises lux products & surprises galore! I won't lie, as soon as I'm finished writing up this post I am heading off to their website to check it out. Anyway, here's a rundown of the products inside September's Little Known Box.

Lovelaughslipstick fashion beauty lifestyle blog little known box review

Peeks Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Quick Sand, Full Size


Peeks Cosmetics are an American beauty brand, who I'd never heard of before. I love the look of this lipstick - it's very Kylie Jenner! One definite plus point about this product is that it contains Vitamin E; to moisturise your lips and keep them smooth. This stuff is essential in Autumn / Winter [chapped lips city] and also, in ensuring your matte lip looks classy and not.. well crusty.

So, you may be thinking 'Where have I heard of LashUnlimited before?' I ONLY BLOODY HARP ON ABOUT THESE GUYS AAAAALL THE TIME [such as here.] LashUnlimited are my fav brand of false lashes and I'm so so excited to see them featured. I cannot recommend them enough. I love their #9 and #7 lashes - and these #8s look incredible, too. I've actually never tried this style before, so I was made up to get these in my Little Known Box. They look right up my street

Nanshy 4-in-1 Marvel Blender, Full Size

I've heard of Nanshy before [and perved on their brush sets online] but I've never actually tried anything from their range before. I didn't even know they did Beauty Blenders, to be honest. I was only thinking the other day, as I sat and watched about 2323 YouTube videos back to back, that I wanted to try out a Beauty Blender properly; so this has come at the right time. I've dabbled with them before, but never really known what I was doing. This particular one feels lovely and has four different shaped sides, for various purposes.

Siskyn Skincare Oils, Frankincense & Jasmine Night Facial Oil, Travel Size 10ml


Although I know a lot of beauty bloggers swear by facial oils, I've never used one before - so I'm excited to try this bad boy out. I love this product's packaging; it looks super lux. Siskyn's Frankincense & Jasmine facial oil is suitable for all skin types and when applied at night, replenishes, repairs and rejuvenates your skin. It also smells a bit Christmassy, I reckon. #Festive

 Epic Blend Vegan Lip Balm, Wild Berry, Full Size


This stuff smells UNREAL. You can also feel the benefit as soon as you apply it, which is nice [and something not all chapsticks seem to do for me!] It's a lovely rich, thick formula which instantly soothes chapped lips and is ideal to pop in your handbag this Autumn / Winter. It also makes a great base for your lippy. And it's 100% cruelty free, made with premium hydrating organic ingredients, rather than all that artificial stuff. Love.

I've really enjoyed my first ever experience with Little Known Box; they're a sub box that I'll definitely order from in the future. There's a great variety of products [full size, at that!] in this box; all of which I'll use - and the packaging / lux feel of the whole experience is like, another level.
