Last Minute Halloween Costume: A Darling Deer

So it is Halloween, and you still haven't chosen a Halloween Costume.  Or maybe, you decided last minute to go to a party.  Regardless of the reasoning, this is a super simple costume, that is also super cute, and dirt cheap!

In all reality, you could get away with spending only a $1 on this costume, the antlers.  Mine came in a two pack from the Dollar Tree.

Though the makeup is a bit difficult to see, if you scroll to the bottom there is a close up.  Basically, what this consists of is your normal, everyday makeup with some polka dots and a brown nose!

For the Spots...
The goal is to look like a super cute newborn fawn that still has it's spots. 
You can create this subtle look by using a shimmery champagne eye pencil to draw the dots, as well as a champagne eyeshadow (it can be shimmery or matte, as long as it's lighter than your skin tone) to set the spots.
I placed three spots on each cheek, and three in the middle of my forehead, but this is a very versatile costume, and you can do the spots however you like!
Eye Pencil - Wet n' Wild Idol Eyes pencil in 130 Pixie

For the Nose...
For this piece of the costume you want to create this adorable little button nose.
I did this by taking a bronzing stick and rubbing a thick layer over the tip of my nose and both sides.  I then used my finger to apply a bronzing powder over the bronzing stick, darkening it and setting it in place.

For the Eyes...
When doing your eyes, you can go as extravagant or simple as you desire.
The basics consist of using a smudgy dark brown eyeliner along your upper and lower lash lines,  and slightly winging it out.  Following that, you will want to curl your lashes and apply ample amounts of mascara.  Keep in mind, you are going for that wide eyed "deer in the headlights" look!
Another option would be to add a champagne or gold toned eyeshadow to your eye lids to brighten your eyes, or adding white eyeliner along your lower lashline for the same effect.  If you would like something more bold, you can go the route of a more dramatic wing, or even a double wing, because why not, its Halloween!

For the Lips...
You are going to want to finish off with (moisturized) red lips!

For my outfit, I wore khakis, a brown scoop neck t-shirt, and tan cami, my cowboy boots, and, of course, my antlers!

There are so many things you could do with this costume, and so many different variations you coup play around with.  A few examples would be...
  • Couples Costume - If you wanted to be a super cute country couple, have your man wear all camouflage or hunters orange.  He can be the hunter, and you are his perfect little darling deer! 
     (Bonus points if he let's you paint his face... this was from two years ago for Halloween when we were Duck Dynasty characters!)
  • Best Friend's Costume -  Ever heard the sayings "Oh Deer" or "Holy Cow"?  Why not mesh them together into a costume!  Have the cow wear angel wings and a halo, and the deer attach the word "Oh" somewhere to their outfit.  My friend and I were planning on doing this this year, but the party we were going to fell through :(
  • Christmas Twist - When I walked into the daycare where I work dressed as a deer, I can't tell you how many times I heard the question "Are you Rudolph??"  ...Umm, is my nose red?  Is it Christmas? No. But it could be it you want!  You could easily use a red blush stick or lipstick on your nose instead of brown, put christmas lights in your hear, or wear a festive scarf!


And a little bonus...
Look at these adorable Frankenstein cupcakes I made for Halloween!

I hope you all have a safe, and fun Halloween!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on mypetalclub.com, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

Glossybox: August (A Cautionary Tale)

So let's talk about Glossybox...  Originally I subscribed when they had a special, three months for $30.  I thought it would be a cheaper way to try something new and see how I liked it, and maybe spice up my content.  I was sadly disappointed.  I wouldn't reccomend Glossybox to anybody.  My subscription was supposed to start in July, but that box never came.  I contacted them about it, and it took a month to get a reply simply saying they would look into it and get back to me the next day.  I waited another week before emailing them again, and at this point I was very upset.  After demanding a reply, explanation, and my box which I had paid for, lo and behold I finally received a tracking number, as well as 100 very useless "Glossydots."   I began to understand that this is not an individual problem and there were many people who didn't receive their boxes and were not getting a reply from their customer service department.  Yet they didn't seem to care.
