Halloween Makeup | Smokey Eyes and Red Lips!


I absolutely love Halloween, because quite frankly I can go all out and wear as much makeup as I want. Normally I stick to the rule of either a bold eye or lip but not together. We also didn't go for scary or particularly Halloween-y but sure!
I did both our makeups and used basically the same products.
Illamasqua Rich liquid foundation (best foundation for a night out doesn't budge and has amazing coverage, but wouldn't use it everyday)
Mac Cream bronzer (from previous post)
Mac mineralize skinfinish natural (light-med)
Mac barestudy paintpot
Mac shadows from previous post (mostly black obviously)
Collection 2000 gel liner all over lid as base!
False lashes (no name brand sorry, just cheap ones) My friends where from eyelure!
Elf brow kit in ash blonde
Collection 2000 lip stain (like a felt tip applicator) in red!
Thanks for reading xoxo

Why I can't browse the Mac website...

 Really shouldn't be buying makeup at the moment (saving to hopefully move to London next year!) but I was planning on buying a really nice winter coat and got one in the asos sale so this is how I justified this purchase..maybe.. kind of .. woops.
Mac Limited Edition Desert Camouflage full face kit (Pictures are not edited at all, so colours are true to life)
Even after all of that, I'm super happy I got this palette. I know I will get use out of it, love every single colour for both everyday and then carbon to add smokiness for nights out or even for eyeliner! It's also so compact, great for travelling and all round handiness.
The cream bronzer is matte (perfect contour) in sandstorm which was the lighter of the two shades.
4 eyeshadows- Sahara Desert (similar to Shroom from the permanent line)
Cactus Thorn (a little like Woodwinked)
Deserts (a little like Satin Taupe)
and Carbon which is from the permanent line.
