Dr Frank-N-Furter Inspired Makeup (Halloween makeup series)

Welcome to my second Halloween makeup tutorial! If you missed my Black Swan inspired look click here to check it out! I'm back with a second look from one of my all time favourite cult films - The Rocky Horror Picture show! I thought it would be a good look to do as Rocky's been very big this year what with Mac doing their own Rocky Horror inspired makeup collection (which I really regret not purchasing some of!) Dr Frank-N-Furter is the film's fun main character played by Tim Curry (AKA the master of playing dress up) This look, like my Black Swan look is a toned down version and just 'inspired by' not directly copied. However I think this one's pretty easy to connect!

So Here's how I did it..

Black Swan Inspired Makeup (Halloween makeup series)

I don't believe how ridiculously quick this year has gone, Halloween already, wow! I decided that I would create a little 'Halloween makeup series'. All these make-up looks are super easy to do and can easily substitute for lack of costume (I swear Halloween costume prices go up so much each year!) Here we go! For my first makeup look I've picked 'Black Swan'.

RIP Oscar De La Renta - A True Visionary

In very sad news for the fashion community today, legendary designer Oscar De La Renta has passed away aged 82, after loosing his ongoing battle to cancer.

To me, De La Renta has always been one of my favourite designers. I put him in my 'Fairy-tale' category next to the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.

Technology Vs Reality

In an ever changing technological environment, our generation has become particularly reliant on technology and instantaneousness. We expect everything on a plate for us; every text to be replied to, every tweet re-tweeted and every instagram post liked. It seems as though we have developed so far into a technological sub-universe and stopped really living!

I recall a recent event at which I was in the audience of a traditional moroccan show; a varied mix of the country's traditional culture. For the first half I was captivated; by the beautiful belly dancer, traditional war horses and their battle dances and wonderful acrobats performing acts that I couldn't even begin to wrap my head around. That's when I decided to turn and look at the audience. Apparently not everybody was enjoying the wonderful show as much, or at least it that's the way it seemed. For rows and rows, all I could see were iPhones. It baffles me how people would rather be living through their screens rather than actually experiencing their surroundings, taking in the culture and reveling in the wonders that the world has to offer.

Photo Diary: Cosmopolitan #fashfest 2014

As you may have seen if you've been following me on twitter or instagram, on the 18th of September me and the wonderful Emma went to Cosmopolitan's #fashfest event: 'From Catwalk to Cosmo'. The night kicked off with an incredible array of free beauty treatments such as manicures from Barry M and spray tans from Sienna X. Emma was even lucky enough to receive a full hair of hair extensions (styled and all) from American Dream! 

I thought I'd put together a little photo diary to give you a little bit more of an insight into the magical night. It truly was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be returning next year, enjoy!
