Mexican Sugar Skull Makeup Tutorial

As Halloween is coming up I thought it would be a good idea to do a tutorial on how to do a Mexican Sugar Skull face.

I really like this look because it's very pretty and original, without it being too 'scary'.
I used face paint by Snazaroo. This face paint is great for people who have sensitive skin and it is so easy to use and also affordable.

Where you can buy Snazaroo face paint 






I also used some every day to day make up, such as; mascara, eyeliner and also talcum powder.


Here is my easy tutorial that you can follow... there is only 17 steps and it should only take you up to 30 minutes to do it!

H&M : Burgundy Sneakers

A couple of weeks ago I ordered some sneakers from H&M. I usually just wear vans but I wanted to try something new and buy some more suitable shoes for the autumn weather.

I quite liked the vans and Nike high top burgundy shoes, which I saw Zoe Sugg wearing in some of her YouTube videos.

However, when I looked for these shoes they were way too expensive for me. So I went looking for something cheaper that looked similar, and I came across some canvas/high top type shoes in H&M which were £12.99.

I really liked the burgundy colour because that colour is very in at the moment, as it goes with pretty much anything and it's a great colour for autumn/fall.


They are 100% cotton which means that they are very soft and durable and also they fit to the foot nicely, and they have just the right thickness to keep your feet warm in the autumn/fall. 

They also have an elasticated bit around the ankle which makes the shoes even more comfortable to wear and it moulds completely around your ankle and supports it. 


I think they are the perfect shoes if you want something that looks similar to the more expensive and bigger brand shoes, but at a more reasonable and affordable price. I definitely recommend them!!!

You can also get them in black, grey and white, but I recommend the burgundy ones if you want to have more of an autumnal feel to your look.  

These are the more expensive ones:

New Buy: 'Oh Crépe' T-Shirt (H&M)

Today I bought this stylish but basic t-shirt. I bought it out of H&M and it completely caught my eye straight away!

T-shirts with basic print on them are very popular at the moment and a lot of people buy these types of t-shirts from places like Urban Outfitters. Don't get me wrong, I love Urban Outfitters it's just a little bit expensive for my liking.

I always find better/similar clothing in H&M and I never come out of H&M without buying anything. It is such a good shop because it is cheap, stylish and it covers a wide range of styles.

This top was only £7.99 (9.45 euros/ $12.78) and it is amazing durable material, which is easily washed. 

I think you'll agree that it is a very quirky top. I could imagine it on someone like Cara Delevingne or Barbara Palvin. 

So that has to be a reason to buy it!!!

I'm thinking about wearing it to the Radio 1 Teen Awards (If I get tickets) and I'll be wearing it with a black skirt with tights and boots with a slight heel on them and also a black leather jacket. This will give the outfit an Urban/rock chick feel to it. I will be doing a blog post on that at the beginning of November... so watch out for that!!!

What's in my make up bag? : Rimmel London Starry-Eyed Lipstick (128)

This lipstick is one of my favourite things in my make up bag at the moment. At first when I bought it and tried it on, I wasn't too sure about it, it looked too purple for me. But as I learnt how to wear it in a better way I started to really like it.

It is a great dark, deep red with hints of purple, which are great autumnal colours, and fit in with anything that you wear.



I got mine from Boots for about £3.95 when there was a special offer, however this offer has expired. I'm not sure if you can still get them in Boots, but you can get it from other drug stores such as; Superdrug, or Walmart (USA). You can also get it from Lloyds Pharmacy > http://www.lloydspharmacy.com/en/rimmel-lasting-finish-lipstick-128-starry-eyed-4g-34769



It isn't really a completely matt lipstick, but it has some matt and hints of gloss in it, to add a shimmery effect, which I think is great for Christmas!!!
