October / Halloween Haul



Hi everyone !

Today I'm doing a haul of October and Halloween.
Some of the photo's I cropped & they look a bit odd sorry !

My aunt gave me this pink handbag. It's really pretty and cute - I say I'll wear it alot during the weekends, because it'll hold my mobile and wallet without having to squash them in or having them in the middle of a huge empty bag !

My aunt (another aunt - I have a few aunts !) and nanny were in Scotland a while ago & they brought back these lovely fingerless mittens ! My other gloves are too small and I really wanted to get a pair of mittens soo these I say I'll wear for the majority of the winter when it gets cold ! Brr !

My friend bought me a stone a few weeks ago when we were in town - I think this one is for protection. I owe her a stone next time we're in town !

Kiss magazine came in the post late as usual !
I loved the issue - Especially their fashion section !
Then I saw the alternative smokey eye with a green eyepencil and I'm here like "hahh I did that months ago !"


 I finally bought a glow in the dark nail polish !
It was only 1.49 in Tesco which I suppose is value for the money, because it's not the greatest nail polish in the world like it peels off like glue or stick tape, but it does glow in the dark for real !

 I bought this Essence kajal eyepencil mainly for Halloween, but also because I lost my heavy MUA one.
I've already started experimenting !

I'm sharing these two nail polishes with my mam & I'm actually wearing them right now on my nails with black nail polish for Halloween !

This hairpiece I bought in Dealz is part of my Halloween costume this year.
It suprising looks great & I can't wait to wear it on Friday !


       
This Essence lipstick I bought is also for my Halloween costume !
I went looking for a plum lipstick, but they were all ten and eleven euros.
I'm going to apply a teeny bit of my vampy red lipgloss on top of this to keep it gothic.

That's my October & Halloween haul.
I hope you's enjoy it and have a brilliant Halloween !

Spooktacular Tag !


Hey everyone !

Today I'm doing the Spooktacular Tag from BeautyBaby's vlog channel.
I tag you's all to do this !

Questions:
1. Do you still Trick or Treat?
I live in the countryside soo I've never really gone trick or treating, but I did about three years ago, I went to my neighbours. I'm not trick or treating this year though.

2. Do you like going to haunted attractions?
To a certain extent ! There's no real "Halloween attractions" in Ireland, but I have gone to haunted houses a few times, but it wasn't at Halloween.

3. Favorite Halloween Candy
I've braces this year soo I'll be mainly eating chocolate & I love chocolate ! Love love love love love chocolate ! But I love purple Sizzles I think you call them and I love eating the double lolly pops you know the ones that are green and white or purple and white. The same company make Sizzles or whatever you call them !

4. Favorite Halloween Movie
This is stupid, but I actually don't really watch Halloween or horror movies as such ! I went to see Paranorman a few weeks ago soo that would be my favourite cos it's really funny. I'm becoming better though, I'm either seeing Frankenweenie or Hotel Translavania with friends on Friday !

5. Favorite Scary Movie
Hahh awkward for me, because the scariest film I've ever watched is Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire ! I basically I don't watch scary films. And that means I don't like them. Word.

6. Favorite costume you ever wore as a child
I remember when I was in junior infants & I wore a fairy costume and that was soo cool ! I loved that costume ! And then I think I was in Fourth Class when I wore a devil fairy costume and that was really cool too ! 

7. First costume you can remember wearing
When I was four, I'd gone into playschool dressed as a clever school girl and I hated it soo I wore a witch costume instead on Halloween night. And you's probably know that I hate not being original soo since then I've never dressed up as a witch.

8. Favorite Fall Food and Beverage
I don't know if this counts, but my Mam makes blood and guts potatos and all from a recipe in a cookbook on Halloween night each year and it is dead yummy - I love it cos we eat without the lights on for it !
And for "beverage" I like the latte in Lidl !

9. Do you have a festive background on your phone?
That is such a coincidence, because I've been wanting to show yous all the deadly Halloween theme I got on my Blackberry !
 And the backround moves !!!


10. What are you going to dress up as this year?
This year I'm going to my friends on Friday soo I've decided to dress up as a gothic duchess which you'll see next weekend ! I don't think I'll dress up on the actual Halloween night though. I can't wait !

11. What would Pinecone be? (Or YOUR pet!)
Aww imagine the rabbits dressing up ! Pinecone is the original maker of this tag's dog or cat I think, but the question is asking what your pet would dress up as. Sorry, but wouldn't it be adorable Plum as Tom and Truffle as Jerry, because they're both different sizes ! Too cute !

12. What candy do you have left in your stash after you eat everything else?
Apples hurt my teeth. And I don't like Crunchies or Mars soo they won't be eaten ! And I have braces this year soo I can't eat too much of the sweets !

13. Do you decorate your house?
Of course ! Who dosen't ?! That would be sacrilegious !!! I love decorating my house for Halloween !

14. Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes, or Hayrides?
I have no idea what any of those are, but the maze sounds fun as long as I'm not on my own !

15. Going to a Corn Maze, what do you wear?
I presume that's some kind of fair attraction during Halloween. I'd probably wear my doc boots, Tights and a dress with my hoodie ! I've no clue what these things are - Will they come to Ireland like now ?!

Here are the questions if you want to do the tag !

Questions:
1. Do you still Trick or Treat?
2. Do you like going to haunted attractions?
3. Favorite Halloween Candy
4. Favorite Halloween Movie
5. Favorite Scary Movie
6. Favorite costume you ever wore as a child
7. First costume you can remember wearing
8. Favorite Fall Food and Beverage
9. Do you have a festive background on your phone?
10. What are you going to dress up as this year?
11. What would Pinecone be? (Or YOUR pet!)
12. What candy do you have left in your stash after you eat everything else?
13. Do you decorate your house?
14. Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes, or Hayrides?
15. Going to a Corn Maze, what do you wear?

Also, I've just reached a quatar of one hundred - 75 followers ! Which is kind of a milestone soo thanks to everyone who follows Dainty Sprinkles ! xx

Halloween Tutorial #3 - Horror Forest Tutorial


Hi everyone !

Today I have the third Halloween tutorial that I've been meaning to upload to show you's for two weeks !
I've had a good few difficulties with uploading this particular tutorial from editing photo's to having to upload photo's and the internet crashing.

First lets have a quick look at what the finished look will look like and the products I'm using.


 Now lets get on with the tutorial !

 
 1. I've already put concealer and make-up on, but first I'm using Essence Quattro Palette in Ciao Bella on my eyelids. I use the third shade of the palette to give it a smoky and dark effect.

 
 2. Next I'm doing the most important and my favourite part of this tutorial ! I'm using Essence Long Lasting eyepencil in 12 I Have A Green and I use it just above my lashes on my eyelids and underneath my eyes. I then join them together with a wavy flick to give it the branches effect. You can smudge the eyepencil to give a more smokey effect.

 3. I finish my eyes with some mascara. For this, I use Essence Multi Action Smokey Eyes mascara.

 This is the look soo far now that we've finished the eye make-up.
It's time for lips !


4. For a vampy effect on the lips, I'm using a vamping red lipgloss. I'm using lipgloss, because vampy red lipsticks do look horrendous on me, but you can use lipstick if you want. I've put on two layers of lipgloss.

 5. Now we're finished the tutorial, I'm going to wear some maroon or burgundy beads.

 
 These are my crystal blood nails. I'll leave the link to the sort of tutorial at the bottom.
 

Thanks for reading everyone !
I hope you's enjoy this tutorial & that it might somehow help you with your Halloween this year !
