♕ Halloween 2017 ♕ Bat Wing Eyeliner ♕
{Feat. Glitter Palace}

I've just realized Halloween is only 11 days away - so I decided to put the other looks waiting in the drafts on hold and to go ahead with the Halloween series. I've done only one look so far - aka this one (apart from the Disney Villains looks which are kind of an Instagram exclusive as of now) - but I thought it was better to start right away! Also because next week I'm going to post only hauls probably (the Sugarpill one and the NABLA one). So without any further ado, let's get started!

This year's Halloween series will feature Glitter Palace's Halloween Collection* and also the new That's the Point* eyeliners by NYX Professional Makeup - which I received just recently! As you can imagine, the glitters are all fit for Halloween - while the eyeliners, with their different tip sizes and shapes, are perfect to design and draw basically everything.
I plan to do as many makeup looks as I can using all of these products... So I have to run, time flies! *tick tock*

♕ The Mermaid Series ~ Mermaid Tail ♕

Happy mermaid Monday everyone :D

Today's look is probably the most difficult I've ever done so far! It's inspired by a look/mini tutorial by @giuliannaa on Instagram - whenever I see mermaid tails/flukes/scales I have to try those looks as soon as possible XD Althought - spoiler - I decided to recreate my own tail/fluke, so this look is so me - more than ever! *_*
I was (and I still am) extremely satisfied with this look, because it features all my favourite colours, glitters, and of course it's mermaid themed... But it was SO challenging and tiresome to make! Totally worth it, though: it's mesmerizing!
On a side note, I think it could be a nice Halloween makeup idea, especially if you're not into creepy/scary makeup looks (like me XD).

♕ Make Up Look ~ Purple Rain ♕
{Feat. Freedomination Collection}

If I'd have to name one of my favourite looks I've made in the last couple of month, I'll surely name this one immediately! I love everything about this look ♥__♥
And to think that I was going for "something simple" - I wanted to try this particular eyeliner style (inspired by the amazing @SwayzeMorgan on Instagram) that is really rock and bold... But I ended up doing this purple look with tons and tons of glitters XD

♕ Make Up Look ~ Sunset Eyes ♕

Today's look features a pretty classic inspiration - sunset! I think everyone, sooner or later, does at least one sunset inspired look during their life. Which is pretty understandable - I mean, sunsets/sunrises are gorgeous, with all their beautiful shades and vibes.
I'm sure I've done at least one sunset inspired look in the past - but this one is different in many ways: first of all, is almost completely matte (gasp!) and features a graphic liner on both lids.

♕ Haul Lush ♕
{Repurchasing my long time favourites after years!}

What happens when your hometown's beloved Lush shop closes down and, about three years later, you move to a city that gives you access to Lush shops again? ;D

Story-time: I was extremely sad when the only one Lush shop in my hometown (and in the whole Sicily, actually) closed down two years and a half ago. I've tried so many Lush products in the past, loved a lot of them - but I also disliked some; I had several favourites and, when the shop closed, I kind of felt lost. I know, Lush has its own website and I could buy from there - but I was just too used to go to the shop, smell everything, try on stuff and be spoiled by the staff... I mean, who doesn't love to go to a Lush shop and be pampered? It's a whole different experience than just simply sitting down and buying online, if you know what I mean.
Long story short: I basically gave up. Sounds crazy, I know - but apart from some sporadic, small orders with a friend (Fede ♥), I simply quit and switched to different brands and products...

...Until a couple of weeks ago!
As I said a couple of posts back, I've recently moved to attend a makeup school - no wait, I think I stated I was attending makeup school but I didn't add that I also moved. Oh well, know you know XD Anyway, now I have access to Lush shops again and I literally dived into it. Headfirst.
And so here I am with a Lush haul for you guppies, after almost three years!

♕ Make Up Look ~ Perseids ♕

I have a special, personal tradition to "celebrate" the Perseids meteor shower (also known as the tears of Saint Lawrence) on August 10th: I like to wear dark blue smokey eyes (as dark as the night sky), and I've done this for the last four years or so. In fact, I have another Perseids makeup look that dates back on August 2014! (You can see it here, I was still blogging in Italian back then though)
I never posted 2015 and 2016 versions (because they were pretty simple), but this year I came up with something different and unique - so I had to share it with you :D

♕ Summer 2017 Most Played ♕

Summer is officially over so it's time to wrap it up and see what I've used/loved the most during this past season! I'm a little late this time, but as you may already know I've just started makeup school so I'm still in the process of settling into my new daily routine.

This summer was filled with tons of new entries - at least, for my standards XD Eyeshadows, lipsticks, face products, glitters... One of everything, basically - and I don't even know where to start from XD

As always, all credits for the Most Played idea go to GoldenVi0let ♥
