Illamasqua Trick or Treat!

I've never been that into Halloween, all I remember is the fat kid down the road takes all the candy offerings every year. I don't understand why we partake in this event, I don't understand its relevance to today in Australia. Besides that point....Illamasqua has cleverly created a midnight shop to promote the occasion for those of you who may have more fond memories of Halloween than I. Check out their spinning trick or treat wheel! Get a 20% off deal for their midnight collection if you are lucky enough to stumble on "treat". If your going to a halloween party, Illamasqua have suggested six ghastly looks to try out including some nail art vid tutorials too. 

Tutorial of Look 3 below.

no tricks! only treats...

Using eyeshadow for gradient nails

Morning  Dearies,

Saemmol Jung is a professional make up artist for korean celebrities. Her youtube channel ranges from hair styling to make up tutorials. Here she shares a clever technique using loose eyeshadow to great a soft, flawless gradient effect on nails. Unlike some of her other videos, this one isn't subbed in english. However, the process seems quite easy to interpret. A base coat is laid out and then using a loose eyeshadow, it is dabbed onto the nail tip with a sponge to create the effect. Remove excess powder around the edges with nail polish remover. A sheer polish and then top coat is layered over. 

Gonna spend tomorrow digging for some old eyeshadows in my drawers.
