Oh My Glob You Guys!

I've wanted to do a Lumpy Space Princess costume for at least three years now, but I've never really had the opportunity and I also don't own any purple clothing, which is strange for someone whose favourite colour is purple. So I decided that for the first instalment in my Halloween looks post series I thought I'd share a little bit of Lumpy goodness - even though it's only from the neck up!

Here's what I used:
♡ Models Prefer brightening primer
♡ Revlon ColourStay foundation in ivory

♡ Rimmel Match Perfection concealer in ivory
♡  Face Of Australia pressed translucent powder♡ Face Of Australia liquid illuminator
♡ Daiso powder blush
♡ Rimmel exaggerate liquid liner
♡ Katy Perry/Eylure false eyelashes in "oh honey!"
♡ BYS Purple shimmer eyeshadow palette (also used on eyebows and lips)

I have at least three more Halloween posts planned for the next two weeks, so keep your eyeballs peeled and let's get spooky!

Show & Tell

Last Wednesday my mother and I hopped on a plane for a super quick trip to Queensland to visit some family members. I love going interstate because it means I get to visit stores that we don't have here in Adelaide, including my favourites Daiso and Kit Cosmetics, so I thought I'd make a big ol' haul post to share what I got with you guys! This is going to be a long post, so strap yourself in for a lot of photos under the cut.

You're probably already familiar with Daiso, but if you're not let me tell you right now that it's the best thing since sliced bread. Daiso is a Japanese variety store chain and everything in store costs a measly $2.80, it's amazing and I love it. You would think that for such a cheap price everything would be pretty cheap quality as well, but I'm always pleasantly surprised by how well constructed the products are - the quality well surpasses that of Australian dollar stores. I would usually hesitate to buy makeup so cheaply, but I love the mascara (the pink and silver tube) so much! I'm yet to try the eyeliner, but I have moderate expectations that it'll be okay, and I've head good things about the brush and sponge cleaner (the white bottle) so I figured for $2.80 it's no big loss if it's not wonderful. I also bought a cute li'l lunch box and notebook to take to work, yay cute things!

Spring Shoe Picks

If there's one thing I can admit to being, it's a sucker for a cute pair of shoes. Slap a bow, a mary jane strap, or a cute motif on a pair of footcovers and you can bet your bottom dollar I'll probably buy it. ModCloth is, in my opinion, one of the best sources for adorable shoes - I seriously spend ages just browsing through the shoe section alone haha - so I decided to cut out some of the leg work and put together a post of all my favourite picks for spring! Head over and check it out for yourself!

A few weeks ago I decided that it would be fun to do a Princess Bubblegum pyjama closet cosplay, and I was really happy with how it turned out! This is how I think PB would look on a Friday night after a long week of science experiments and diplomatic duties, when she settles down to watch a few cartoons with a big mug of hot chocolate.

Here's a close up of the make up (heads up: I did airbrush my skin because I had a couple of stubborn breakouts that were not very princess-like at all):

And here's what I used:

♡ Revlon colourstay foundation in ivory
♡ Rimmel match perfection concealer in ivory
♡ Maybelline fit me foundation stick in natural buff (contour)
♡ ELF translucent powder
♡ L'orĂ©al nude magique bb blush (also on lips)
♡ Rimmel exaggerate liquid liner
♡ Katy Perry/Eylure false eyelashes in "oh honey!"
♡ Too Faced shadow bon bons eye palette
♡ Lime Crime opaque lipstick in centrifuschia (on eyebrows)

I'm also starting to think about what I might do in the way of a Halloween costume this year! I have a couple of ideas, but nothing I've fully settled on yet, I don't even know if I'll be doing anything yet lol. Have any of you guys started planning your Halloween costumes yet?
