Autumn and Winter are my favourite parts of the year. In the last couple of years they've become even more special because..... NEW MAKEUP COLLECTIONS!
When I found a red halloween mascara 3 years ago, I knew that I had to keep my eyes open for more things. Holiday makeup is my favourite because companies just seem to put forth more of an effort, whether it be the pretty packaging or the beautiful sparkly creations inside. I'm not saying they usually just toss a bunch of stuff together the rest of the year, just saying the holiday collections seem to be more special somehow. More bright, more deep, more sparkly.
Meow Cosmetics is no different. At one time I had more Meow than anything because of their many, many vibrant Halloween collections last year. I HAD to have them! I caved and snagged the entire Friday the 13th set just from the site swatches and descriptions alone. At Christmas time I used my head a taaaad bit more. I grabbed samples of everything and then decided. However I think there were only maybe 10 (not including the Holiday Spirits collection) that I didn't get full size of. I have different types of lighting in this apartment so if a shade doesn't pass the dining room test (that light seems to bring out the sparkly undertones the best) then I skip past it.
(The whole having many Meow shadows was also because I am a gold fiend. Have you not seen the Egyptian Treasures collection!!?!)
So I really can't wait for the new collections to start rolling out, or maybe repeats of the older ones just so I can snag some I wanted but didn't get (Jack-O-Lantern! Spiderweb!) or backups of ones I've actually used the most (yup I did use some a LOT, which is rare for me! Skelecat, Full Moon, Spellbinding!)
Here's my EOTD using halloween shades.
Lid: Spellbinding (Friday the 13th)
Crease: Blood Lust (Zombies)
Browbone: Full Moon (Zombies)
Liner: Coffin (Dance of Death) One of the prettiest liners I own. I did get a backup of this already JUSTINCASE!
Lower liner: Accident (Friday the 13th)
(As always, click to blow them up HUGE and check out the pretty tones in the Full Moon, Coffin and Accident especially!!)
Bring on the dead leaves and snow, BABY!!
