Monday Rainbow Challenge... Black is the colour :)


Hi All,

Ooh we are getting closer to Halloween ladies, has anyone decided on their outfit yet?

I have been searching through loads of videos and I think I am happy to do a queen of hearts inspired look which is very exciting although I haven't tried it yet so we shall see for Elaine's fab blogger event coming up this Saturday!

So for this week, myself and my blogging bestie Ruby Laine have chosen Black!! Sure why not with the nights becoming cold and dark and that spooky time of year creeping in!! I used a lot of budget makeup for this look and even themed in an orange type lip. So basically I am wearing a Wet&Wild black shadow, essence glitter, and also a Wet&Wild lippy. I had started with a different type of black look adding the fuschia pink from the Wet&Wild palette under my eye but then I added some more black to really smoke it out. As always I used my trust Blank Canvas Cosmetics brushes in E10/24/25/26. For the lashes I used the Red Cherry #43 lashes and I love these babies!!

Here is my Black & Orange(ish) look...

The little pot of essence glitter is a miracle product

Elaine being her fantastically creative self, created two looks for us this week, one a very wearable night time black smoked out look, not too different from my own, which is so interesting to us as we don't actually see each other's looks until we are posting and she even commented on that herself tonight, sometimes we think quite similar. 

Be sure to head over to Elaine's site which is linked up above to see how she created the skull, she used a minimal amount of products and this is just a fantastic makeup look so it's definitely something I want to try on myself. I cannot wait for Elaine's Halloween Bloggers Event this Saturday I will of course have a whole blog post up about out experience and I will hopefully showcase my attempt at some Halloween makeup next Monday. Have a fantastic week ladies and be sure to check us out on twitter @RubyL_MakeUP & @emmajcsheehan
