Halloween is so close now and I am beyond excited for it! I love dressing up and of course everything that comes along with it, especially the falling leaves.
So many brands come out with Halloween lines and this year, they do not disappoint. I've rounded up my must-haves for this year and cannot wait to get my hands on all of them!
Lush Monsters Ball Bomb
Returning from last year, Monsters Ball has hit Lush stores once again and I am so happy. Not only does it fill your bath with a cosmic array of colours but this little guy smells so citrusy and fresh. It is the perfect addition to any autumnal bath and I will definitely be stocking up before it disappears again.
Monsters Ball retails for €5.25 and is available in Lush stores nationwide.
Penneys Pierced Nails
I love Penneys nails and don't think you can ever go wrong with picking up a set, provided you pick up some better glue at the same time! Pierced nails aren't a new trend but these black ones are perfect for adding some edge to any look this Halloween and for the price, it's a total bargain.
Pitch Black Pierced Nails retail for €2.50 and are available in Penneys stores nationwide.
NYX Professional Makeup Cosmic Metals Lip Cream
Whether you're dressing up as a witch, fairy, unicorn or princess this year, one of the cosmic metals will definitely complete your makeup look. The pigmented lip cream, combined with a shiny gloss adds the perfect glistening effect to make your lips eye-catching and memorable. The range comes in eighteen different shades and looks absolutely fab!
The Cosmic Metals Lip Creams retail for €10.50 are available in Arnotts and selected pharmacies nationwide.
Essence Cosmetics Superlast Waterproof Eyeliner
I picked this eyeliner up while I was in Italy and paid less than €2.50 for it and it did not disappoint at all! It is very pigmented, doesn't have a patchy application and lasts all day! The applicator is small enough to draw intricate designs or graphic liner for whatever makeup look you're going for this year!
The Superlast Waterproof Eyeliner is available from Penneys and selected pharmacies nationwide.
Sleek Distorted Dreams Highlighter Palette
I think this palette is so similar to ABH Moonchild and the variety of shades means you can have a popping highlight for almost every outfit. The green and lilac shades are perfect for cosmic looks while the pink and peach shades would give that a more subtle glowly highlight.
Distorted Dreams retails for €13.99 and is available in Boots nationwide.
Lusso Self Tan Lotion
This tan (medium) is the tan of dreams. It is a buildable tan so if you don't think one layer is enough, it's quick drying and easy to add a second layer. It also has an unbelievably natural colour so if you're planning on being an oompa loompa, this tan isn't for you.
I find a layer of tan just makes me feel so much better about myself and I feel fab when I have tan on. A good tan can make any outfit better in my opinion!
Lusso Self Tan Lotion retails for €22.30 and is available from lussotan.com.
Make Up For Ever False Lashes
Make Up For Ever have such a cool range of false lashes that are perfect for Halloween. Whether you're going for a super dramatic eye look and need the perfect over-the-top lashes or you just want some added volume, you'll find them here!
Most of the lashes retail for €17 and are available from MUFE stores and concessions nationwide.
Lush Bewitched Bath Bomb
Lush are just knocking it out of the park with this year's collection! I haven't had a chance to pop in to see the full range yet but from the pictures I have seen online, I will definitely be picking this one up! This cute bath bomb turns your water black and if that isn't a colour to match my mood at the end of a long day, I don't know what is!
There's something about a black bath that's so intriguing and I cannot wait to try this one out!
Bewitched retails for €5.75 and is available in Lush stores nationwide.
While you're enjoying an evening bath or watching a movie while getting ready, there are some Halloween classics that you have to watch with your favourite drink and seasonal sweets!
Halloweentown is a Disney classic that spun into a series that defined my Halloween traditions when I was younger. My brother, sister and I used to watch one, if not all of the movies before we went trick or treating and I have to watch it every year now. Otherwise, it just doesn't feel the same!
How someone can go through October and not watch this movie is beyond me. Granted, it scared me at times when I was younger but it is always on some TV channel on Halloween and if it's on, I have to watch it!
It is such a classic Halloween movie and although I'd love a sequel, it's perfect the way it is, and does not, in any way, need a remake.
