Halloween Makeup You Can Wear Year-Round

Now that Halloween is over, you can still get into the festive spirit by using the makeup that you thought was just appropriate for Halloween! Red lipstick, red lipgloss, false eyelashes, bright eyeshadows and liners and lots of shimmer and glitter look great when you’re dressing up for your Halloween party but can be used year-round as well. Of course no one is going to paint their faces blue to go to school or wear bright red lipstick every morning but used sparingly and in the right way, Halloween makeup can look pretty and add a dash of sparkle and fun to your everyday makeup look. With the holiday season just around the corner - Thanksgiving and Christmas are on the way - there will be plenty of opportunity to break out the special occasion make-up products that you thought you couldn’t use again! Makeup is supposed to be fun and experimental so don’t be shy!

Lips and eyes

If you dressed up as a vampire, Cleopatra or anything else that required bright red lipstick, you’re in luck because you can mix it with creamy lip balm to make a reddish lip stain! Even though bright lips look great on Halloween, a more toned down version of berry colored lips can be achieved by dabbing a bit of the red lipstick on your lips with your finger and then putting clear lipgloss or lip balm over it and rubbing your lips together. You can do this with any bright lipstick to make it look softer for everyday. Bright eyeshadows can be used as a pop of bright eyeliner - green, blue or purple look especially cool! If you get an eyeliner brush from the drugstore, just simply dip it into the eyeshadow and line your upper lashes with the color. Simple and pretty! If you have fake eyelashes that aren’t too out there, you can definitely use them again for a special occasion - it just means you can skip the mascara!

Face, Glitter & Nails!

Shimmery powder and glitter can easily be used after Halloween - just use a very light dusting on your eyes or even mix shimmery pale powder with body lotion and smooth on your shoulders for a bit of sparkle for holiday parties! Bright blush used for Halloween to be a doll or Alice in Wonderland can be used lightly for blush. Just make sure you brush a tiny amount on your cheeks for a natural flush! Luckily dark nail polish is in fashion for nails so you can wear black, midnight blue, deep plum or blood red nail polish all winter long! Even though some of the makeup you used for Halloween may seem a bit bright or daring - there are always ways to modify or tone down bright colors for everyday use - and with the holidays around the corner, it’s just about time to start getting dolled up again for Christmas festivities!

Its my best friends birthday party on Friday and I still don't know what to get her. She's turning 12 and she loves: guardians of the galaxy and Shopping at Newlook. she wears jewellery quite likes hair and beauty products and enjoys watching movies, going to music concerts ( she likes Taylor Swift) and apple products. I'd rather not use gift cards because they're like the lazy option out and she's my Best friend but if you can think of a great brand for her then ok.

Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
