My Halloween Outfit & Makeup!

 Hi everyone! Due to popular demand, I thought I'd share with you all what I wore on Halloween! Originally, myself and my two best friends' original Halloween dress-up plan was to go as The Hex Girls from Scooby Doo; but as per usual we left everything until the week before, and pulled together some last minute outfits that didn't go too bad! My outfit ended up being some sort of Halloween cheerleader - complete with bats, cobwebs and spikes. My glorious spikey bra is from Romwe, along with the PVC skirt with spikes on the side. Unfortunately, the spikey bra and nightclubs do not mix and half of the studs ripped off whilst I was dancing near me (devo)! I wore the sheer Batman top I picked up in Lazy Oaf last month in London, and my beloved bat necklace that I bought yeaaars ago in Ad Hoc
My makeup took me around an hour or so, and it featured a cobweb design on one side of my face. I used Essence waterproof gel liner to draw the design on with a thin Sigma eyeliner brush, so it wouldn't budge for the night. I added pale green and blue eyeshadows to the cobweb, from my amazing Sedona Lace 168 eyeshadow palette - giant eyeshadow palettes come in so unbelievably handy for Halloween! I used it for both my makeup and Sarah's, using the shadows for eyeshadow, blushes, contour etc. On my lips, I wore a bright Barry M lipstick in the shade 62. I applied the bright pink lipstick over a waterproof Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip lipliner in 16C. 
We had a fantastic night out, in one of Dublin's newest nightclubs; NAGN. I met a heap of subscribers and blog readers, I got a photo (below, right) with a lovely subbie from France - it's always amazing to hear people from overseas watch my videos too! Also, if you're wondering what in the name of god is a corpse doing in the photos below; that's me! I messed around with the same 168 palette the day before Halloween, for literally about ten-fifteen minutes out of excitement. I plastered my face in a white powder from the Sedona Lace Contour & Blush Palette, and then blended a heap of purple, black and green shades around my eyes and face for a gaunt/ dead look (so attractive). I always find my best makeup looks happen during experimentation at night.. when I'm not going anywhere. Typical! Anyone else find this happens to them? It's safe to say I scared myself, and my Mom at least and I was pretty impressed with it for a ten minute mess around. 
If you haven't checked out my spooktacular Halloween Lookbook video below, have a watch and let me know what you think! Prepare for a lot of black..


I hope you all had a fantastic Halloween, and I'm already excited for next year.. of course!
