This is Halloween, This is Halloween


Hi Everyone!
As you all know, yesterday was Halloween and to celebrate, I went to a Sixth Form Halloween party. I love Halloween, mainly because I love dressing up and this year I decided to go as a cave girl. I missed out on Halloween last year because I was away so this year, as you could probably guess, I was absolutely buzzing! I bought my costume about two years ago for another party from The Magic Box (I think) and haven't worn it since so instead of buying another costume, I thought I'd give this one a good old recycle. 



Included in the costume, you get two black bits of material which I decided to use as a headband and a belt. I thought I'd go all out on my hair and make it huge! Even though my hair is already big, I went and made it even bigger! I used my Enrapture Extremity Heated Rollers which are amazing for creating big, bouncy curls. I left them in for 30 minutes then, after taking them out, I took the front section of my hair, backcombed it and made it into a quiff. I then tied one of the black bits of material around my head into a bow. After a load of backcombing and ridiculous amounts of hairspray later, my hair was done!
To make my costume look more authentic and "scary", I wanted to paint claw marks and scratches around my body as if I'd been attacked by some sort of animal or something (don't worry I wasn't). I bought fake blood and costume makeup from Poundland for, guess how much...£1! BARGAIN! I mixed the black, dark red and light red paints to form claw marks on my chest where my dress came off my shoulder and then did the same for the scratches on my right arm and left leg. When this had dried a bit, I dabbed some fake blood into the scratches to make them more realistic. Unfortunately, by the end of the night, they looked more like bruises than scratch/claw marks but it still worked, trust me ;-)

Ignore the fact I didn't have my lipstick on here guys, woops

For make up, I used my trusty Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette to create a brown and gold smokey eye and collaborated this with a red lip. I spent so long on my make up, but who cares, I love make up. I'm going to list what I used for you all to read:
