Need a Halloween look that’s spooky but beautiful? Try something like this look I did for a shoot with @charistalbot photography, @tonyarts hair and the lovely @oliviajaneoj.  💀    Pale down your complexion and sculpt your face, brush up and set eyebrows with wax or pritt stick for a feral creepy edge, use black liner and smudge into and around the eye and blend into the sockets, add a bit of texture with @illamasqua liquid metal. Finally block out your lip colour and pat a deep purple/blood red into the inside of your lips and blend out to give a ‘just bitten’ vampy look.

I love this, I don’t know why but it’s just so captivating! Maybe it’s her expression, the make-up is random and abstract but so fitting and beautiful.

Kit Skincare Essentials 
The five products above are some of my favourite skincare must-haves to have in my kit. There are so many amazing products out there that I want to give a go and experiment with, but these are 5 products that I’d repurchase over and over again. 

Simple Wipes - By far the best wipes I’ve ever used, they’re soft, gentle and keep moist (there’s nothing worse than a pack of wipes that evaporate all moisture as soon as any air hits them). 
Bioderma Crealine H20 - I’ve had this cleanser in my kit for a while now and everyone always asks what it is when I use it. With it’s super gentle, water-like feeling it is great for all skin types and brilliant for models when their skin is going through multiple look changes.
MAC Fix + -  Where would I be without Fix+!? Many people come to me asking if this ‘fixes’ your make-up, no it doesn’t, but it does help your make-up look it’s best. Full of vitamins and minerals to feed the skin and ingredients such as green tea, cucumber and chamomile that help calm the skin, it’s a bottle of complete goodness. I use it before moisturising to help hydrate and boost the sinking in of moisturiser, during make-up application to help keep the product fresh, and after application or a few hours wear to replenish and freshen make-up. Currently I have the Mineralize charged water in my kit, which does the same thing but has a slightly citrus scent to it.
MAC Lip Conditioner SPF 15- With almond oil, shea butter and avocado extract along with vitamins A and E, this is another product packed with hydrating goodness. I put this on to the lip to help hydrate the lips while working on the face and eyes, I’ll then either exfoliate with a lip scrub or a face wipe to remove the product and any dead/dry skin. 
Embroylisse Lait-Creme Concentre - A cult moisturiser and for good reason! This super hydrating moisturiser is gentle and enriched with essential fatty acids and vitamins. It helps to restore moisture, I love it on most skin types but especially dehydrated and dry as it brings the skin back to life, ready for the application of make-up. It is also a brilliant make-up remover, especially for those extreme looks that take almost as long taking the make-up off as it did to put it on! It just melts the products together, which is easily taken off with a cotton pad.
