Halloween - Lipstick spooktacular

Hi Sweets, 
Whether you are new to the blog (Hello, if you are!!!) or been following Sweetsomethings for a bit lipstick is one, if not my most favourite makeup product.  So, we are rounding up the Halloween posts with a BANG!!  Saving the best for last, in my humble opinion and ending with 2 posts dedicated to lipstick.  This post is all about some great lipstick options for Halloween, lipsticks that I think will go with almost any costume you might go for, or generally evoke the spooky nature of this celebration.

Halloween - The Vampire Edit

Hi Sweets,
When it comes to Halloween and costumes there are a couple that I think everyone thinks of.  For me Vampires, although almost a generic and common costume, are something iconic to the horror genre and something I new I could whack together quickly, with no need to go out and buy a specific outfits or makeup (minus the teeth).  Vampires have always been one of my favourite creatures and something that have always intrigued me, so this was the perfect chance to give the vampirus look a go .  (no humans were hurt in the making of this makeup).

Halloween - The Doe Edit

Hi Sweets, 
Halloween comes but once a year and I thought I would get a little festive and do a small  3 part series just for this 'celebration'.  Halloween isn't really a big deal here in good 'ol NZ, but when else would I ever get to try out a fun makeup look?  #iwokeuplikethis.  I decided that for my first look/post I would do a generic face application that could then be customised into a doe, house cat or big cat (lioness etc).

Jouer - Blushing Beauty Palette

Hi Sweets, 
Jouer is one of those brands that I have both heard about and lusted over for quite some time but, as with almost all amazing brands its not available in New Zealand (well in store anyway).  So let’s get to know Jouer a little better.

Spring and Summer 2015 - Face Edit

Hi Sweets,

Ok, so I’m definitely not a makeup artist but I am a makeup enthusiast and I was so inspired by the trends of Spring 2015 (see post here ) and since I am in spring, I thought why not create my own version of the effortless, dewy look with a pop.

Spring lipsticks - Top picks

Hi Sweets, 

Its spring!! Although you wouldn’t believe it looking out the window today.  Hail, rain, wind and yup cold, lol.  What better way to warm up the senses than talking about spring lips?  I have gone with 12 lip options that I think will be amazing this season, and even if you aren’t currently in spring these lipsticks will be a perfect pop of colour.
