Halloween Make Up | TWISTY the Clown from American Horror Story.

I'm a Good Clown'...

Ok so it's not pretty, it's not got glitter, and it's not one of those halloween looks that screams oooooo look I'm ALL scarrryy.....but still sexy ya kno. This is for you if maybe you are interested in halloween....HALLOWEEN. Scaring people, slightly grotesque and pure fantasy. This is Twisty the clown from cult hit show American Horror Story. There's something I have always likes about him. When I say 'liked' I mean.. he's a REALLY good scary character. He is utterly terrifying, yet human and has a teeny tiny bit of like-ability about him.

I love the way they do his makeup for the show : it's raw, imperfect, smudgy and relatively easy to do if you have a bit of makeup/painting skill and about an hour of time. If like me, you are tired of these glamour makeup/ scary (not scary) halloween looks floating about then have a read on to see how I created this look.

My First Experience with HD Brows | Before & After.

High Definition Beauty was formally known as 'HD Brows'....probably the phrase that most of us are familiar with. It launched back in 2008 and quickly became THE authority in shaping perfect brows. Fast forward to now, 2016, and they have launched a full makeup line and alongside their training centres for brows, there is High Definition salons offering full beauty treatments, alongside the infamous brow shaping which every beauty-savvy girl/boy has done and it's the method that celebrities will turn to to keep them looking perfect and preened for all of those close-ups.

 "Your eyebrows are a vital part of your personality, not only do they frame your face, over 70% of your facial expressions depend on them, and that's why the right brow shape and colour can take years off you.."

Temple Spa Trufflesque Ultra Hydration & Radiance Mask.

Want the ultimate luxe treat for your skin that will help plump, hydrate and brighten your skin for those special occasions? Then look no further than the Temple Spa Trufflesque Mask : decadent ingredients, GOLD in colour and promises to give you that instant facial in a tub.

This mask is not one for a hap-hazard weekly use on a Sunday PM as you sink a glass of wine in the bath trying to forget that tomorrow is Monday (just me then?). This mask is a luxury, a special occasion mask and something I think you will reach for when you want your skin to be red carpet ready and looking it's best.

September Beauty Favourites.

With the weather becoming a little colder, richer creams and more nourishing skincare is needed. I am finding myself having to pay just that little bit more attention to my beauty regime, and the little shortcuts that perhaps I got away with in the summer, I need to really pay attention to right now. The facials, the body hydration, and the hair treatments...all make such a difference when that weather is a little harsher and we are generally feeling a little sorry for ourselves.

Better late than never : My September Beauty Favourites.

Sunday Riley U.F.O {Ultra Clarifying Oil} : It's Landed.

What can I say? I was more excited about this launch than possibly anything else this entire year. Why? I simply love Sunday Riley as a brand and I LOVE her face oils, I genuinely think they are some of the best on the market and I lovingly own 3/4 of the ones that she already does. U.F.O is the newest facial oil from this brand since the much-coveted LUNA which launched earlier this year. U.F.O (ultra clarifying oil) is for oily/breakout skin and it's packed full of great' I was quite literally sold before I had even tried it on my hand. If you want to have a quick update I featured both the JUNO & LUNA oils here

Laura Louise Beauty Blog's 6th Birthday Giveaway!

WOW, I can't believe it has been 6 years that this little blog has been going. I have had a good reminisce and look back over my older posts (I deleted a huge majority of the first ones - erm cringe!) and it's so nice to see how far it has come. Not just in terms of readership, but I think in content, topics and photography.. If you have a look back even to 3 years ago I was snapping away my blog snaps on my iPhone! It's still my pride and joy, I still spend WAY too much time on it, but it's a huge part of my life now and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's a great month to have a blog birthday too ; this is my favourite month on the year as it's also my *actual* birthday and grey knitwear will be in season again. YAY.
