My Halloween Look with DIY Black Lipgloss!

Definitely not the most creative of titles, my brain doesn't seem capable of more than simple speech right now! But hopefully the look I've created will make up for that a little bit. I'm not actually going anywhere this Halloween, I'm sat home doing some work, but I couldn't help but to get lost in the fun of it all and come up with this. I really really enjoyed creating it, so here's to hoping I can get a little more creative juice running through this blog! Anyway I hope you enjoy this look :)

Also apologies for only having two pictures of the look, unfortuntly I've managed to lose them in the depths of my computer, but luckily I still have these to that I'm pretty pleased with to share with you. Sorry if that sounded a little big headed, I didn't mean it to?

Anyway I also edited these pictures a slight bit to make my skin slightly whiter as I only had a white eyeshadow to make my skin white and it didn't quite do the trick! I know other products exist but it wasn't worth my money to buy one just for this though!

DIY Black Lipgloss
As Halloween only comes around for one day a year I didn't want to go out and buy a black lipgloss, so I made one using products I already had. You might not want to do this, but I'm personally happy doing it and wanted to share for others who don't mind. It was very easy as I just used a black eyeliner (Accessorize Eye Pencil - Black) to colour in my lips. And then added a clear gloss (BeautyUK Lip Lust in Diamond) over the top using a lipbrush. 

Thats your basic gloss, but you can go a little funky by adding some glitter/colour etc etc to the centre of the lips using a fluffy brush, which gives a really kool effect (I'd didn't do that here though, but did have done whilst playing around for this post)

Anyway that's enough of what I didn't do for Halloween this year! What did you guys get upto? Any funky costumes or face painting? I'd love to hear :) Anyway I hope you enjoyed my look and thanks so much for stopping by, H :)
