Pop Art | 15 Minute Fancy Dress/Halloween Makeup



I'll be the first to admit this isn't my best work, but I had a spare 15 or so minutes of boredom and this is the quick look I came up with! This is a great makeup to do if you have a last minute fancy dress party or if you are looking for low maintenance Halloween ideas (very early! lol) It's pop art inspired so basically you're outfit can be anything you want, I would definitely go with bright colours and maybe colour blocking!
Thanks for reading! xox

Products I've hit pan on | 2

If you're not familiar with the term "hitting pan" it basically just means that you've used enough
of the product to show the bottom of the pan (packaging).
It shows products that I really do love and use on a regular basis!
This post has caused me quite a lot of problems and I was just about to give up when my camera batteries had ran out and couldn't find anymore but then I had a thought. So here's a retake of this post improvising with my webcam. Hopefully this doesn't come out too bad, but I do think the lighting in these products is very true to life, which is the main reason I'm not giving up! Also feel like it makes the post a little more personal, so here goes..


My every day blush and bronzer combination.
Mac Crème Blush in Something Special
Dior Bronze 002 Honey Tan

My everyday powder blush option (I basically used this everyday before I bought the Mac one above, but they still great together if you want to set the crème blush for a matte finish) This is so cheap, so I think everyone needs to own this, amazing for oily skin as it is matte!
Natural Collection in Pink Cloud

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium. This is my handbag powder because it's so low maintenance, you can literally put this on forever and never look cakey. Amazing for quick touch ups without a mirror. This is the first thing I will be purchasing again.
Stila Angel light powder in shade e (refill pan) this is marketed as a foundation powder however because of the colouring it worked so well as a contour for me, literally used it everyday I had it. If anyone can recommend a matte powder this sort of warm beige colour, comment below! Looking for alternatives, because as a brand I don't feel Stila is worth the high end price.
