Halloween giveaway!!!! Status: CLOSED

It’s time!!! I’m having a giveaway again!

I recently gained a 100 followers on WordPress, which is the host of this blog. The amazing part about having WordPress followers is that I do not know them in real life, except for one (hi Renas!).

So, for that I am super grateful and I think it’s very special that there are people who found my work on their own and decided to follow it, not as an act of kindness of friendship but simply for the things I share with you. Thankyou!

Besides that I know that I haven’t been able to post the real hardcore makeup things or any real projects lately. Ever since I started with the thesis and then with the moving out and new job stuff, I have avoided WordPress like the plague, because it would remind me of my guilt and how much I wanted to do all these things I love, but simply didn’t have time for. I did check up on my stats and what really surprised me is that some of you kept reading, kept visiting. Then I post one little update and BAM, new followers! So thankyou for still being here with me!

It is time to do something in return again. This time I’d like to give away a palette from Sleek. This is the iDivine Oh So Special palette. I know, this has little to do with Halloween, except for the time of the year. I got it a while ago because I knew this would happen, I just didn’t know when. No swatches, because hygiene! 🙂 It’s a very neutral palette, you can use it for all kinds of makeup, so I hope you like it. The Sleek iDivine palettes are definitely my favorite for daily use, and they have been for quite some time.

For this giveaway I’d like you to comment on this blog post how you found my blog and perhaps what you liked about it and made you follow it.
I’m also a little curious, what are you doing for Halloween this year? 🙂

For the non WordPress followers, don’t worry, you can leave a message without an account and your emailadress can be hidden except for me.

Giveaway opens: NOW

Giveaway ends: 2nd of November 2015 at noon, so 12.00 p.m. UCT+1

The winner will be chosen randomly using Randompicker, not based on answers. The winner, and only the winner, will receive an email. It will not be announced publicly. If the winner does not respond to the email within 72 hours, a new winner will be chosen.

Yes, it is international!! I hate it when other giveaways are US only, and I’m in Europe.

Go on and share the news!

Love,

This week!

So, it’s been a busy week, and I could make seperate posts of everything, but I prefer doing this all at once, so here we go!

Last sunday was my Carnival makeup job number 1, for Roseline.  I met her for the Halloween makeup job I did last year and she called saturday afternoon. We settled with a neutral version of the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, the version done by Alexys from MadeUlook, because she wasn’t really in for crazy facepaint. It was a big challenge for me, to not go all the way with the crazy, but we made it and Roseline was satisfied 🙂

Monday and Tuesday were the other makeup jobs for Carnival, the girls wanted a Sugarskull, this particular one by Lindsay. I practised on myself first, so they were able to give feedback.

The girls wanted to go all the way with pink, glitter and everything couldn’t be crazy enough, so that was good. I really liked doing dramatic, theatrical, extravagant makeup that says BOOM in your face, I was trying to find ways to make the colours pop more and more, something I never really do at home. I completely changed the products that I used, but I think it turned out pretty good 🙂
The girls actually won the Best Dressed contest of Melody, so YAY 😀

The last few days of the week I finished a piece of furniture, it’s a gift for one of my best friends, she and her boyfriend are now living together. It’s supposed to be something to put plants on, like herbs. They really liked it 🙂
This is the crafting project I have been working on for a few weeks, and because of this guy here, I wasn’t painting when the sun was shining. But it was fun! A challenge, but it was great!

Other news:
The video thing with the spaghetti bridge is over, not going to happen anymore. I’m sad, but it’s ok, it was kind of something I expected, I had to contact all these people I didn’t really know and make sure they replied to a producer, but not everyone did, so, due to the law system in the US with rights and whatever, they can’t use the clip.

The Elven Costume continues to be fantastic, a collegue is borrowing it now for her daughter, which is lovely, I’m not really using it anymore. I should try to keep Ireth alive though! Let me know if you have suggestions?

I also have a new video coming up, though it’s not finished, ofcourse… I have the rough video editing done, now it needs a voiceover and music, so the whole sound editing is yet to be done, sometime soon. I saw the weather for tomorrow is fantastic, so tomorrow I should paint my wall!

Conclusion: lots of things that I knew were coming, are now finished. This was the best Carnival I ever had, due to all the makeup! Still, there are a lot of projects that have yet to be finished 🙂

Love,

100 Followers GIVE-AWAY! – CLOSED

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!!

Today we are going to celebrate the fact that I now have a 100 followers on this blog!!!!

I’m so grateful, as I told you many times, for all the people who continue to support my work and appreciate the art of Makeup. I love every single one of you.

To show my thanks, I will be giving away a product that I got for you at IMATS London last June. I knew this day would come, so I bought a lovely palette for you:

This is the NYX Cosmetics Glitter Cream palette, which has a lot of different colours. I tried to find this product online, but all I saw where smaller versions that are no longer available on the NYX website, so, I figured this would be special!

I have opened the palette, only to show it on camera, I have not swatched these because that would be unhygienic. I swatched one or two colours at IMATS though, and I can tell you this: the top layer of the product does not contain a lot of the ‘cream’, it’s mainly just loose glitter. The reviews I found say that you should rub a little harder/deeper to get to that creamy texture.
I’m pretty sure we all have some sort of purpose for loose glitter though 😉 Just look at these colours!
