Martian

If I would pick one favorite product that I have tried this far this year, it would most certainly be the Cosmic Eyedusts by Black Moon Cosmetics! 

They're packed with pretty sparkles and despite the black base they're easy to blend into your smokey eye, to add a little *not-so-subtle* hint of color. 




Products used;

• Kat Von D Metal matte palette, Bones and Jet
• Kat Von D Alchemist palette, Emerald
• MAC Copperplate eyeshadow (discontinued)
• Black Moon Cosmetics Cosmic Eyedust, Martian
• Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day!

Halloween Scene

Hey bats and spooks! 

I'm sorry I've been gone for a while. This summer has been extra hard on me, both mentally and physically, and I've spent most of it on my couch with Candy Crush and a cup of tea. Struggling with depression can be extremely exhausting and getting things done can be impossible, even if they're fun things like blogging. 


If you're following me on Instagram you've already seen this but I thought I'd share it here as well. :) 




I've got to say, fuck it's hard to find a matte, vibrant lavender purple eyeshadow! The one I've used here is a mixture of four or five different shades. Do you have any purples like this that you can recommend? 


Thanks a lot for stopping by! I hope you all have had a lovely summer this far. 


Stay spooky,

Spider Queen

As I mentioned in an earlier post I've been in a very Halloweeny mood lately. Here in Sweden we don't really celebrate Halloween, but I used to host a yearly Halloween party as a kid and I've been yearning to recreate that spooky feeling of anticipation that the end of October always brought with it. So this year I will actually celebrate with some kind of festivity. 


Anyway, the day-dreaming about late autumn and its spooky aura has sent my gothic mind into a creative frenzy and here is another result of that. As much as this is a Halloween-appropriate look for most people I would totally wear this for everyday occasions. What about you? :) 






Products; 

Kat Von D; Nosferatu liquid lipstick, as a base to achieve that dried blood feeling, Jet eyeshadow, Pink Opal as the highlight in the middle of the eyelid and Tattoo liner in Trooper

Sugarpill; Tako and Love+

Anastasia Beverly Hills; Venetian red and Red Ochre


Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Take care! 

Love, Luna Von Bat

Stitches

The other day I finally got around to do a new eye look. I have huge problems starting new projects (and finishing them...) and I've had zero patience to spare for all the steps involved in learning how to take decent pictures with my "new" camera. But I finally did it, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out. :) 






Products used;

•Sugarpill Tako, Acidberry and Poison Plum

•Kat Von D eyeshadow in Jet and Tattoo Liner in Trooper


I've been in a very Halloweeny mood lately and my mind has conjured up various ideas for new looks that I want to do. But then it comes down to actually do them, so only time will tell how that story goes. ;) 

Thank you so much for stopping by and if you feel like it leave a comment in the section below before you leave! 


Stay spooky until next time!

Blue Eyes, Blue Lips

I still haven't gotten it into my routines to update the blog in the same frequency of which I update my Instagram account, so here's a late post about a look I wore last week. It was actually inspired by a kind and lovely girl called @tanztummiternacht on Instagram.

 

The past month I've been doing what hopefully will be the last, long investigation on my health issues, and probably the most important one. Throughout my whole life I've had issues with anxiety, panic attacks and reoccurring depression and the aim of this investigation is to find the core of those problems (or as my husband put it "To see what the troll in your mailbox is"). They will have the results for me in a couple of weeks and I'm super anxious for what the outcome will be. 


The chain I've made myself and I have more of them planned. :D

Hope you liked this post and if you did, please feel free to leave a comment before you go! :) 

Stay spooky darklings!

Nice Composure

Hello lovelies! 


Here's a super-neutral (well, to me at least...) look that I wore for work on Tuesday last week. One of my lovely co-workers has started a fun little makeup challenge where she's given the rest of us one product for each day of the week that we are to incorporate in our makeup look that day. This day it was the paint pot Nice Composure. Here I've used that product on all elements of my makeup look; as eyeshadow, lipstick, for my brows and as a contour. 


 


What colors would you use to create a neutral look yet keep your spookiness? 


I hope you all will be having a nice weekend! 


Stay spooky,

Bats

Hello fellow spooks!

Finally I managed to create an interesting makeup look to show you. Although I've had my "new" camera for over two years now I still struggle with it to get even decent pictures so here I've used the camera on my husbands phone. And then I ended up having anxiety about not using my advanced, expensive camera... Blah!

Well, here's the look anyways...

 


Skin
Idun Norrsken foundation, Jorunn
MAC Pro Longwear concealer, NW10

Eyes
Sugarpill, Love+
Kat Von D, Jet and Bone
MAC Modern Twist, Squid
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, Trooper
Illamasqua eyelashes, #21

Hope you like the look! :) 

Stay spooky!

Dusky Mermaid Eyes

For Christmas my husband got me the Kat Von D Metal/Matte palette (it is apparently limited edition, which I didn't know when I got it). I'm very inspired by this range of colors and when I sat down to play with them this is how it turned out. 

Resting bitch-face...

Unfortunately my cameras battery were dead so I couldn't take any "real" photos or close ups. Now the battery's charging and hopefully I will have time again soon to sit down and try out all the other colors in the palette. :) 

Which colors in this palette do you like best? Personally I can't decide which one's the prettiest, since they're all so adorable. 

The shadows I've used are; 
Ignite (lid)
Moss (inner/outer corners, crease)
Bone (browbone highlight)
Suede (crease transition color)
Jet (as a soft eyeliner) 

Lips: Kay Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Mother

False lashes are MAC #7

I'm hoping to be able to do another look soon (I'm thinking about something insanely purple...) but my eyes have been running like two waterfalls for the past week, probably because of the cold January weather. 

Anyways, see you soon! :)
