Painted birdhouse mini giveaway!

So as mentioned a few days ago I’ve been making something to celebrate hitting 5000 followers. I’m painfully broke so I couldn’t buy something makeup-related to give you guys so I’ve spent hours painting this instead! Hopefully for my next giveaway I’ll…

My 5000 followers giveaway has 2 weeks left! And I’m really excited to have hit 6000 in the last two weeks while it’s been running. :)

It’s been a hectic week at work (sale week in fashion retail = mental) but I’m hoping to get a couple of new makeups done in the next few days. Thanks for following!

Hello, my fiancé and I have a horror and folklore blog. I really like your stuff and the Frank the bunny is awesome! Would it be ok to reblog your stuff? It would link to our FB and Twitter as well if that is ok?

Of course! As long as the link to this blog is still there :) thanks for your interest!

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy yesterday and Nebula was just the coolest.

Weird question. I know you live in the uk. Where do you buy your makeup? And other than the paradise paints, what do you find is the easiest to use? Thanks xx

I buy my Mehron paints from either Treasure House of Makeup or eBay :) and I’m not sure what you mean, as in normal makeup or other paint brands? The only other paints I have used are Kryolan Supracolors, which were great for doing makeup for high-intensity theatre shows (CATS) as they’re oily and can’t be sweated off as easily during dancing and under lights, but I struggled to blend them properly when it came to my own makeups. In terms of normal day-to-day makeup, I love Urban Decay and have a few of their eyeshadow palettes and eyeliners :) and as I’m super pale I blend Illamasqua’s pure white foundation with Maybelline to get the right shade! Other than that, pretty basic high-street brands really :)

havoklily asked:

Hi! I wanted to know that after you have the Mehron paint on, how does it deal with people touching it? Does it smear off? Or does is it fine! Thank you :)

As it’s water-based it’s not so resilient to sweat/smearing unfortunately. Normally with my makeups I don’t actually have them on for very long but if I wanted it to last longer I’d use a makeup fixing spray (or hairspray in a pinch), which makes it much less likely to smudge :)
