Hi everyone! I hope your October and Halloween were great! I know I’m 25, but Halloween is one of my favourite holidays! I love dressing up and wearing a ton of makeup and being something different for one day. This year, I didn’t really have the opportunity to dress up for actual Halloween. But that’s okay – I did try out a few different makeup looks and I wore cute gold glitter cat ears to work. Anyways, enough about Halloween – I know it’s a few days late, but I am here to talk about K’s Baes for October! These have been my obsessions for this month. Interested in what they are? Keep reading!
So if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you would have read about my obsession with the BH Cosmetics Modern Neutrals Palette! I purchased this palette to use in my freelance makeup kit, but I honestly can’t stop using it. The colours are so absolutely stunning and super pigmented. This has been the only palette I grab when I am dolling myself up. I have used this palette for two weddings, for halloween looks.. I just cannot get enough of it. There is a great shade range – warm and cool shades – and they are all neutral (Hence the name of the palette) so they are perfect for a really dramatic eye or just an everyday look. The shades I have been obsessed with are the terracotta shade, the blue/grey shade and the deep orange shade. I used the terracotta colour to create a warm brown smokey eye for some weddings that I attended. The blue/grey has been my go to when I am just going out with the gals, or just feel like doing something different. And I used the orange shade in one of my Halloween makeup looks. Like I said, the pigmentation of these shadows is amazing for the price that you pay. If you don’t own anything from BH Cosmetics, do yourself a favour and order a palette. You won’t be disappointed!
Next up on the list of October obsessions – xoBeauty Brushes. xoBeauty is a company created by YouTuber Shaaanxo (Absolutely love her – Check her out if you haven’t!). They sell brushes, lashes, jewelry etc. Every time I watch one of her videos, she uses these brushes and I just love the way they look, the way they blend and I finally decided that I should just purchase some… I feel that you can never have enough good quality brushes! And am I ever happy I did! I have heard before that the proper tools will help your makeup application and I always thought the brushes I had were fine; They did what I needed them to do for the most part. Man – Was I wrong! Using these brushes has improved my makeup game dramatically. My shadows have never been so beautifully blended! I bought the 12 piece brush set and have been using them non stop. The brushes I am most obsessed with are the Fluffly Blender Brush, the Blender Brush, and the Powder Brush. These brushes are great quality, soft and sturdy and I don’t think that you can put a price on great brushes that make your makeup application flawless. Am I right?
Next up: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Okay, so to be honest, I had a hard time deciding if I should purchase this item or not. Everyone has talked about this liner and there are definitely mixed opinions. I just couldn’t work myself up to spend 25$ on a liner when I am SURE that I could find something very similar for a cheaper price. But, of course, my addiction got the better of me and I finally took the plunge. And to be honest, I am really happy I did. I haven’t used many ‘pen like’ liners; Usually I use ones with the short felt tips or a gel liner. But since I purchased this, I have been using it a lot! It makes applying the liner so easy when you can just draw it on! It is quick and easy, it is really black and it doesn’t smudge or go anywhere during the day. I have been wearing mini winged liner to work since I got this because the application of this product is so quick and easy. I can definitely see what the fuss was all about now!
And last but not least: An oldie but a goodie – Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I know I have talked about this product a lot, but I just repurchased it this month and I am back to being obsessed with it! After using a bunch of different mascaras that I received in Ipsy bags or drug store mascaras that I just wanted to try out, it’s always nice when you can come back to a product and love it just as much as the last time you used it! This mascara makes my lashes look full and voluminous and black as my soul. I just love it so much. It is, hands down, my favourite mascara of all time. I know that mascaras work different for different people but if you haven’t tried this one, I suggest you do! 😉
Okay guys, that’s it for October’s K’s Baes! I hope you enjoyed this post. What were your favourites this month? Were any of yours the same? Do you love any of these products as much as I do?
