Things that I’ve Been Doing Behind the Scenes

Hey guys!

Today, I’m going to share a few things that I’ve been up to but haven’t really advertised very much. Despite appearances, I don’t solely create crude photoshop images for my blog. I try to keep myself as busy as possible and I have a lot of creative outlets so I thought it might be time to actually show you what I’ve got going on outside of this blog! I hope that you enjoy!

MOTD: Lughnasadh/Lammas

Hey guys!

Today and tomorrow, people across the Southern Hemisphere are celebrating Lughnasadh (Lammas), which celebrates the first harvest after the full moon! To celebrate, I’ve created a little MOTD and I’m also sharing something extra special at the end of the post! I really hope that you enjoy this excuse to celebrate a seasonal holiday!

Products Used:

Kat Von D Monarch Palette
Sleek Ultra Mattes V1 – yellow shade
ELF Baked Highlight in Moonlight Pearls
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm
Physicians Formula Bronze Booster
NYX Blush in Taupe
Milani Rose Powder Blush in Romantic Rose

I really wanted to use warm shades but specifically yellow because this time of year is all about wheat and Lammas essentially means ‘bread day’. In simpler times, by the time Lammas came around, people were really rationing what they had left of their food and Lughnasadh was a big feast time because it was the first harvest. The holiday represents abundance and the last rays of warm sun. We still have a bit of warm sun to go in Australia but definitely by Mabon, we will be feeling the cool weather! To celebrate the season, I did a bit of shopping and you bet I filmed some of it haha. I haven’t filmed anything in ages and this was really terrible so please excuse me but if you’d like to just hear my voice and see where I live, this will be the perfect video for you hahaha.

MOTD: Abyss Dweller

I was really hanging out to do some kind of crazy makeup look because I really only do simple looks with different lipsticks on here and that’s boring to me and can get really repetitive. I have also been wanting to test out a little potential filming spot that I have in my room. The house that I blog in is basically all dark and the lighting is crap and I can’t take nice photos or anything unless I go outside and the lighting is nice. I did post a video of this but I’ve since deleted that channel.

 Here are some photos I took of the makeup:

I gathered inspiration from other makeup, one being a half lizard and half human.

I wish that you guys could see the makeup in real life because it never translates very well in my photos and evidently in my video. But I guess you get the idea. I had a lot of fun mucking around with my makeup and hopefully I’ll be able to start making more videos and maybe better quality ones.
