Hannah’s Guide to Christmas Makeup

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!

Look, I’m going to make this super simple. It’s Christmas. You already know gold/silver/white glitter, cat eyes, and red lipstick are go tos: see below.

You’ll find about a million tutorials for this (see here and here).

You already know my favorite products, too: Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 108, NYX Fine Line liner, and NYX metallic glitter in really any color.

But say you want to change it up this year: I have a couple new palettes that I’m obsessed with. And no surprise, they’re…..

FROZEN THEMED!

Yes, I’m talking about the Elsa and Anna eyeshadow palettes by Colourpop!! If you’ve read other makeup blogs, you know I love Colourpop. They’ve got great prices and pigments, and these palettes do not disappoint.

Let’s start with the Elsa palette:

This one has some really great colors. My favorite is the upper right corner, called Northern Lights. It’s a really pretty champagne pink. Fair warning, the white color on the top left (Cuddle Close) and the silver on the bottom middle (Ice Crystals) both have a bit of a blue tinge!

The colors are gorgeous, and create the perfect icy winter look. See below for a great tutorial! (Which also uses the other Elsa makeup!)

Now for the Anna palette!

This one’s a lot warmer, like Anna. I love Scooch In, the top left, as a highlight color, and the Arendelle gold glitter is gorgeous. This palette is also great for fall. Here’s a tutorial below!

Here’s another great tutorial that uses both!

Overall, I like Elsa’s palette better, but I tend to use shadows from both when creating a look. It’s really fun to experiment with mixing colors like purple and blue like Elsa does, and Anna’s looks are really nice and more everyday.

Anyways, besides my signature look, that’s what I’m wearing this holiday season! What about you?

Hannah’s Guide to Non-Scary Halloween Movies

It’s about to be October, which means it’s Halloween season!!

I LOVE Halloween. But I’m also a scaredy cat. Which is why I have compiled a list of the BEST non-scary Halloween movies!!!

10. Mean Girls

Okay, I know this isn’t technically a Halloween film. But it’s got Halloween in it, and it’s one of the best movies of all time.

9. Twitches

Disney Channel had some of the best Halloween movies. Seriously.

8. The Haunted Mansion

Another kids option….but honestly might be a better inspired-by-the-ride movie than Pirates of the Caribbean. Plus it’s got Eddie Murphy!

7. The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton at his best. Plus you can watch it even after Halloween’s over!

6. Beetlejuice

Another fun spooky and wacky option! Scary doesn’t have to mean not fun!

5. Shaun of the Dead

Finally, a movie that’s not for kids.

This hilarious zombie movie spoof can be a bit gory, but I wouldn’t call it scary.

4. Ghostbusters

Ghosts AND humor AND Bill Murray??! What more could you want?

3. Halloweentown (and its sequels)

I know they’re for kids!!! But these are the best Halloween movies of all time. Of ALL time!!

You’re lying if you say you don’t want to go to Halloweentown.

2. Hocus Pocus.

This one is a CLASSIC! It’s fun and spooky without being scary.

1.The Rocky Horror Picture Show

No one does Halloween better. Go to a midnight showing for the full experience!
