Getting in the Halloween mood | To dress up or not?


As you may or may not be aware I am having a Halloween party! I am having one for me and my besties and I'm on a mission this year to out do the last year.

You may have seen in my recent YouTube video about some bits that I've picked up to decorate my house with, but I felt perhaps you needed a blog too for the added inspiration. In this post I'm simply going to tell you the must have items for some style ideas for the best costume and for those who don't like dressing up but don't want to miss out, I've created some looks for a fashionable Halloween! 

Gothic skeleton look

For this look I've simply thrown in a few accessories as like you'll see from all these looks, the costume itself is the main focus. You'll obviously need facepaint and personally I love a good wig for Halloween!

I really love this one, again because I am all about a fun coloured wig! Throwing in Essie nailpolish and dark makeup from Nars, you're ready to set sail with this one. I've actually added a temporary tattoo in there to the look a more pirate vibe to it.

Gothic glam

For me this is almost a costume to go to when you're not 100% sure or have enough time to create something. Again the actual costume does the talking, but added details like these hold ups from Claire's can really add an extra personality to the look.

Always going to be my favourite isn't it?! Give me a chance to do some special fx makeup and I'm a happy camper! Luckily you don't need to splat the costume with blood as it's already part of it, I've simply added Rimmel Colour Rush lipstick for added pop and of course blood red nails from OPI.

  1. I have to say I absolutely loved going to this place the other night. The people that work there were trying to create an optimal dinner experience while making your choices their priority. I would definitely recommend these venues in houston for any kind of fancy event.
