Cruella de Vil Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Cruella de Vil Halloween Makeup Tutorial

October is here, which means that it's time to get into the Hallowen spirit! I'm quite excited to share today's video with you guys. It might not seem like it, but it took a lot of time and effort to put it together. My life literally revolved around it for the past week. Not that I'm complaining. I loved doing it and it made me realize how much I actually miss being creative with makeup. 

Film/character makeup was by far my favourite part of the professional makeup course I took now more than a year ago, and creating this look really brought back all the happy feels. Little projects like this get me all excited, so fingers crossed I can do more of them in the future. I obviously notice a lot of things that could be done way better, but I'll let myself off the hook this time. I think I did the best job I could taking into consideration the limited time and resources I had available.

The video is actually a part of the collab I did with my friends Charli, Smay, Lucia and Trudy. We decided to create makeup and/or costume looks inspired by famous villans. My villain of choice, as you can see by the title, is Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians, and I truly hope you'll enjoy watching the makeup tutorial I came up with. Of course, don't forget to check out my friends' videos as well. They are all awesome! If you click on the photos featured at the end of my video, their videos will open in a new tab. :)

Autumn/Winter Haul

My wardrobe was in need of an autumn/winter update, so naturally, I went shopping. I managed to get some shoes, clothes and random bits and pieces from Primark, New Look, Forever 21, H&M and Paperchase. 

Happy Birthday The Puzzle of Sandra's Life

'Whoa, I'm old' has been my first reaction when I realized this little corner of the Internet was turning five years old today. The second one was 'let's go buy some cupcakes to celebrate', in case you're wondering. But that's beside the point. I really can't believe how fast time's flying by. I've been blogging for half a decade! Half a decade! Can you believe it? How did that happen?!

I went through some major, stressful life changes this past year, which has definitely taken a toll on my blog, and I have to admit, this is not something I am proud of. Apart from simply not having enough time to produce content, I felt incredibly unmotivated and discouraged as well, and seriously considered retiring my blog on several different occasions. But the thing is, there will always be ups and downs. It's just the way life is. And throwing away years of hard work and precious memories just like that would be a silly thing to do, right?

Deep down in my heart, I know I'll never be able to say the final goodbye. This blog has become such a big part of me and changed my life in ways I couldn't have imagined. They say that everything happens for a reason, and guess what? I believe it. I don't know who to thank for starting this 'weird' hobby of mine five years ago - probably myself, duh - but I do know that I want to thank you for coming along for the ride. Especially those of you who haven't abandoned me during this crazy, post-less year. Thank you. You know who you are. 

Essence First Impressions Get Ready with Me

I was lucky enough to get my hands on some new essence products recently, and thought it would be fun to try them out for the very first time on camera. Since half of my makeup collection consists of essence products anyway, it was not hard to throw in some old goodies as well and turn this get ready with me video into a one-brand-only makeup tutorial. The mini reviews I give are obviously just my initial thoughts, but you can expect a whole bunch of detailed blog posts with swatches in days to come, once I properly test out the products. The photos are already taken, so fear not, they're definitely coming. I told you you won't be able to get rid of me just yet... ;)

The Week When I Tried Dumplings

Oh, hey! Look who's late with the weekly update again. Oopsie! I spent the weekend in bed (well, kind of) recovering from the nasty cold I managed to catch, and my plans had to be pushed back once more. Wah, wah, wah. I promise to get things back on track soon! Anyway, I have a vlog from two weeks ago to share with you today. It's not the most exciting one, but I hope you'll still enjoy watching it. I took you with me to the woods I used to go to all the time when I didn't have a job yet, I tried dumplings for the first time and went to the cinema to see The Scorch Trials. You can find out whether or not I liked the movie by clicking on the play button below. ;)

The Week When I Visited the Harry Potter Studios

You're getting two posts/videos today, because I had a situation with my computer and things now have to go up later than planned. This is a vlog from a week ago and it's full of excitement! We got a pet for the weekend, I received a surprise package that will up my vlogging game, and had a fun evening with my friends at the Harry Potter Studios.

The British Tag

Can  you believe it's been almost a year since I moved to London? I can't! I'll probably be writing an in-depth, personal post about my thoughts and feelings on the whole moving abroad experience and my life in London a year down the line situation once the official anniversary rolls around, so I'll keep things short and light-hearted today and do The British Tag. It's a tag with a bunch of questions about the British customs meant to be answered by the Brits, but I thought it would be fun to do it myself just to see if I've acidentally adopted any British habits during my time here.
