Halloween tricks and Treats

I’ve curated a few things that caught my attention.  There’s a sweet treat, some beauty and make-up products as well as a a type of candle. I’ve also included a link to My Halloween Make-up FX page for any of you that have parties, or even kids going to them and trick or treating.

Also I have many other Halloween pages on  hubpages as well as the main version on my blog  ZodiacImmortal.wordpress.com  They should all be in the Menu. And yes some are similar, as I started them on Squidoo or hubpages and they were too long  so instead I backed it up on my log and  elaborated on it there. That way I can include everything I want without the limitations of hubpages. There’s also the 13 days of Halloween series I did a few years back on that site as well.

 

I saw this cute black cat cake, and wanted to try it. sadly they make it with butterfingers, which I don’t like so I think I’m going to try some other type of candy bar(s) on it. Maybe PB twix, or watchamacalits

Try This Halloween Cake That’s As Sweet As It Is Cute

 

I can understand spending $10-$20 on a candle, depending on the size, and how long it lasts (as well as type of wax etc)  but these are way too much. (though there is one for $10 another for around $20)                                                 No Hocus Pocus About It — These “Black Flame” Candles Will Put a Spell on You  but I doubt they have a b lack flame! (sorry they’d need to do some sort of chemicals on the wick I think for that. Just like some butane lighter fluid might be a green color or red. )

 

The Classic 1993 movie seems to have it’s own line. I came across a blog post  Hocus Pocus movie inspired beauty Collection    and had to check it out. The 3 products Body Cream,  Shower Frosting and Whipped  body scrub under  ‘Its just a bunch of HOCUS POCUS and the Sanderson sistas lines. Also the  least they could have done was use some witchy looking potion bottles and jars. Not that boring looking container. At least something that looked like a couldron, or a whatever container with a witches hat for the top.

 

Love this and Love the Elvira palate even more!

Use This Ouija Face Powder To Set Your Makeup & Summon The Dead

oh and the ONLY way you open yourself using a ouija board, is if you don’t know how to use it properly, have negative feelings and do not cleans it and yourself before and after use. DO NOT use in YOUR house or a graveyard Not to mention a few other things. Basically if you are NOT a witch,Shaman, mystic etc keep away. It’s not a game.

 

halloween-make-up-effects

again I have many  Halloween topics on my Blog ZodiacImmortal.wordpress.com.

For instance, I have the full The #13 Frights of halloween series of posts, as well as a separate 13 Frights of Halloween page, my award winning Dracula Day, The Vampire Bible, a Make-up and FX page (yes like from Hubpages, but this one should have some different videos as well as items I recommend. There’s plenty more  While on  hubpages I have certain movie hubs, and then on my Entertainment blog  I have the signature series  Classic Cuts of Nightmare on Elm street, and Ghostbusters. I’m working on others as well but some of those upcoming you can find in my hubpages like an early version  Nightmare on Elm street, FInal Destination and others. 

Keep in mind the pages on my blog are the main version (and just have the hubpage version as a back up) So all the items in the blog menu are updated as often as possible (I do also go through the #13 Frights of Halloween posts  but are not updated as often.)

Establish an Effective Skin Care routine

Healthy habits and a comprehensive skin care routine will help you see the skin you’ve always wanted.

So I came across this on Pinterest  and there are a few things I think I’m going to have to change for my version when I write it up. (Which I may do in my 2018 BUJO. Some I will use others I don’t really need to follow liek the make-up brushes, I don’t use make up often let alone aside from some chapstick or gloss I don’t use it in the summer (rarely, I will put a smudge of eyeshadow)

Exfoliate I would say is best every other day and if you have sensitive skin 2x a week. Although if you are a tanning buff like me (i do use 100SPF but I tan fast as well!) I would exfoliate everyday (or night before) especially your legs BEFORE you shave with a pumice stone or preferably a Loofa  (and no its not the shower Poofs…  They make them for your face too!)

go in the sun and use some baby oil while you still have water dripping on you. You nor a boyfriend or Husband will be able to keep yourself from ‘petting’ your silky legs. And it won’t burn you that way you still get the tanning effect from the baby oil but you will have your sun block over it so you won’t get burned.

weekly Exercise? Thought that was supposed to mostly be a daily thing!!?!?! Though I really hear every other day

I’ve read once a month is fine for cleaning your make up brushes, but then I guess that depends on all the different colors etc you use.

‘grooming eyebrows’ should be bi weekly not monthly especially if this ‘grooming’ means waxing or tweezing. Don’t forget if you get your eyebrows professionally waxed, that you can go a month without having to go back if you maintain it. After a week or even a few days check to see if any hairs have emerged and tweeze those buggers out! This way you stay polished looking and don’t have to pay whatever it is every other week. (or even cheaper, DIY! My Wax cost me no more than $10 and it takes a lot less time than even if you have an appointment you sometimes have to wait… then go through it… it takes me no longer than 5 minutes to do my own.

 

You should condition your hair weekly and month should be a deep condition or hot oil treatment (especially if you have split ends) If you use product in your hair, blow dry it even in summer, or or is just naturally dry and strawlike… you will want to use conditioner every other wash, and once a week use a deep moisturizing conditioner. (and may I suggest a leave-in conditioner.)  also if you have naturally dry hair.. instead of every day (which is what is drying it out… try every other to day or more… say you last washed your hair on Sunday.. wash it on Tuesday night or wait til Wednesday. This way the natural oils can seep into the hair to smooth the follicle as well as you won’t get split ends much. And if During the summer use a little conditioner and sunblock mixed to smooth on the ends of your hair and your scalp. (this way your head won’t get burned nor your hair fried!

 

 

11 Make-up and Toiletry Organizers…people swear by

Or try a deluxe organizer for your shadows, glosses, and other little things: Heck I could use this not just for make up etc. but for a desk organizer, even a display to sell jewelry and crafts I made!

I have loads of make up old or new, and YES I know the old needs to be chucked out, but I just love the color too much and its no longer sold. I still have my old Caboodles carry case as well as my big Sassaby one both in storage (I would swear in mine there’s an extra compartment that you could put hair sprays in)  but I would like something other than the drawer in my bureau for my make-up (plus whatever is on top of it) I have a caboodles or whatever organizer as well, (again in storage) but that may end up being desk fodder at some point instead.  This one on the right I like for the top of my bureau as you can see everything in it. I juts don’t know if there will be enough clearance as mine is also a hutch.

That hanging bag I do love for travel a well as the toiletry set (I have something like it) but for that much money I’ll stick to the Michael Kohrs (sp?) hanging toiletry bag I got as a hand me down. (I won’t buy brand name stuff but I’m not against getting it free or in a Thrift store! (but then I usually don’t notice it is as I don’t really look at the names, just the style and if I’ll like it on me)

What I need for a make-up organizer is not just make up but side holders (good size ones) for at least 5-10 bottles of Perfume and same for lotions!
