Skull Makeup

I had a late Halloween outing the other day in the form of a pub quiz! I decided to do some skull makeup and took to lex from madewelook for some inspiration! I decided to go for a look where the skull underneath your skin looks like it's cracking out. 

To achieve the look I started to lightly draw in the place I wanted my skull to be. 

I also filled it in with white eyeliner. To make it a bit more intense I applied a white eyeshadow over the top. I started to define the cracks using grey eyeshadow and eyeliner. To do the nose and teeth I used black eyeliner defined with black shadow and used black shadow on my eye to make it look hollow. 

I completed the rest of my makeup with some grey winged liner and just added some shading where I thought  it was needed! 
Here's the final look 

This was actually really easy to do and I'm thinking of filming a tutorial on my YouTube channel Allthingskerri but I don't know if it's way too late!! 

What did you do for Halloween?

Bioderma Micellar Water

Ever since I tried Micellar Water I have been a total convert and I use it all the time to take off my makeup because it's quick, easy and most importantly nice on my sensitive skin! 

I always figured that because Bioderma was the original Micellar Water there was a lot of hype surrounding it and it couldn't really be that much better then all the others could it? 

Well thanks to Birchbox this month I get to try a mini sample of Bioderma and I really put it to the test! 

I went to a late Halloween celebration night and decided to go with a classic skull for my face. Well not quite so classic as it was like my skin had cracked away to reveal a skull but anyway lots of black makeup to try and remove! I took one large cotton pad and here are my results. 

I was actually blown away with how this felt on my skin. It's so gentle and doesn't stink my eczema around my eyes (which were a little puffy after wearing so much makeup!) it removed even my waterproof mascara with ease. I am totally in love with this one and I don't think I will use my other Micellar waters now that's how good this one is. My other ones may require a few scrubs to get rid of stubborn makeup but this glides it all off with ease! 

Have you tried Bioderma yet?

November Birchbox Skinny Dip Edition

This box looks beautiful I love the design this month! And if you were lucky enough you could upgrade your box for £4 and get a cute phone case with the same design. Sadly the case didn't fit my phone so I didn't get to do the upgrade. 

So what's inside?!

You get 
1. So Susan Mascara £18 (full size) 
I'm going to keep this one sealed and unused for a while because I have so many mascara a and if I open this O run the risk of wasting it. It's nice to see a full size product in this box. 

2. Lord and Berry silhouette lip liner. £9
I thought this was a mini white eyeliner when I first saw it, but it's actually a translucent lip liner! I've been after one of these for a very long time so I'm really excited to use it! 

3. Ren Nighttime Facial £32
If I am honest the Ren samples never excite me. This one I've had in a magazine or a different beauty box and like most Ren products it just didn't agree with my skin. 

4. Beauty Protector Body Lotion £8 I love the hair set angler from these guys and I've also had a body wash. I don't use a lot of lotions like this because they are too artificial for my sensitive skin but it can go to a good home. 

5. Delorom Crème Aquaconfort £35 
This is another skin care item. It has aloe Vera in which I love on my eczema prone skin. 

6. Thumbs Up Rosa Nail Wraps £6.99
These are a bonus and as we only get five wraps I doubt they are full sized but they are pretty and I am sure I will use them. 

All in all its a nice box with a good balance of products in there. There's also a few little bits that I am really excited to use! 

What have you had in your box?
