Beauty & Lifestyle Picks For Halloween

Halloween Lifestyle & Beauty Favourites

| Beauty & Lifestyle Picks For Halloween! |

"Double double toil and trouble", the spookiest day of the year is almost here and before the ghostly ghouls and goblins appear it's time to gather the Halloween treats near. I'm starting to get into Halloween mode with ethereal makeup picks, pumpkin scents, a supernatural read, rich Autumnal Essie hues and a fiendish fancy or two.

It's business as usual for me on Tuesday morning as I'll be heading to campus for a quick meeting and a fleeting visit to the library. I've decided to switch up my makeup routine for the day that's in it with ethereal products that will give me magical and spooky feels. 

There's nothing more magical than the Mac Extra Dimension collection and for Halloween, I'll be sporting their Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Ready To Party. This shimmery light purple shade with pink undertones looks gorgeous on the lid for a pop of colour paired with other pink and purple eyeshadows. I associate rich purple colours with Halloween so I'll be using some of my favourite shades such as Mac Sketch and Haux paired with it.

Another dreamy Extra Dimension pick is the highlighter in Double Gleam, a beautiful vanilla-champagne shade that provides an intense glow. 

A recent addition to my NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream collection is the shade Prague, a beautiful berry shade with purple undertones. There's definitely a purple theme in this post, haha!

I get two buses to College so my hands always get cold whilst I'm waiting for the bus and by the time I get home they feel dry and sore. To combat this I've been applying my current favourite, The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin hand cream*, a hydrating pick with a non-greasy formula that sinks in quickly. The warm nutty vanilla and pumpkin fragrance is perfect for the day that's in it!

I'm hoping to squeeze in a little pamper session and I'd like to use the last bit of my Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar I have left. The quintessential Halloween product is packed with gold glitter and an orange dye so it provides your bath with a fun colour and a bit of sparkle which is what Halloween is all about! 

After my relaxing bath, I'll slather my body in an Autumnal favourite, The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin Body Butter*. The body butter has the same delicious fragrance that's reminiscent of Autumnal baking as the hand cream so it's a great Halloween pamper treat!

The last step of my pamper evening is the nails and I'll be opting for Essie Big Spender, an autumnal berry hue with strong purple undertones that's similar to the NYX lip cream I mentioned earlier.

When I'm all pampered and relaxed I'll be having a quiet cosy evening in, watching Hocus Pocus, a Halloween tradition since I was a child. My treat of the evening will be a few festive fiendish fancies and a tasty hot chocolate for ultimate cosiness. After the movie, we'll probably watch our latest tv show favourite, Stranger Things and it also happens to be a great Halloween choice as the events in the show are eerie and mysterious. 



Happy Halloween!

How will you be spending Halloween?

Love,
Cliona xx
