Halloween Puppets

HalloweenPuppets2

One of my favourite things to illustrate and design are paperdolls and puppets! I’ve got so many ideas (a whole notebook full) of sketches and characters for different paperdoll and puppet sets it’s hard to know what to do first sometimes. Here I’ve illustrated 2 Halloween puppets – a Witch and a Vampire!

My Fave Lip Products

Overview

Thought it’d be fun to do a post on my favourite lip colours. These are the lippy products that I tend to use the most. You can see that most of them are quite similar in colour – a pinky nude, which is a really good everyday lip colour. Sometimes I will do a brighter colour if I’m feeling bold that day, and sometimes I’ll only feel like using a balm with a hint of colour.

Closeups

1. Rimmel London Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matt Lipstick in 101
A great pink nude colour, that has a creamy application but with a matt finish.

2. Maybelline Color Sensational Color Whisper in Lust For Blush
I’m in love with these Whispers! They are super moisturizing and have a great colour pay off. I actually prefer them to the Revlon Lip Butters.

3. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Nude Beigeread my in depth review here

4. NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige
Although it’s name is Beige, it’s more of a pinky colour and it’s great layering on top of other colours.

5. Maybelline Babylips Color in Berry Crush
Another balm favourite with a hint of red on your lips. Smells great too.

6. NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Dolly Girl
Love how creamy and pigmented this lip cream is. The colour is a bright pinky purple and has a really nice shine.

7. Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Nova
Another great lip cream that has a nice smooth feel to the lips. A little bit goes a long way.

8. Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in Primrose
An oldie but a goodie. I think this colour would suit almost everyone.
