Halloween Week Makeup Look Extragavanza

In the week leading up to and including Halloween, I was challenged to create some unique makeup looks.  My initial inspiration came from a package I received via Buxom Cosmetics.  I shared all the looks on Instagram but I thought I'd bring to you all the fun that I had.  I haven't done anything Halloween-ish beside handing out candy since I was 14.  This all really was fun.

My first look was a 2017 take on 80's Madonna in the Like A Virgin video.  I may have sang and danced my way through Snapchat and IG stories that night, rumor has it...oh wait, that's an Adele song!


I couldn't find a picture that wasn't all fuzzy from the video but below is from the same time frame:

Day 2,  I was challenged by Buxom Cosmetics to wing a little superhero action.  Afterwards, I got on Snapchat and deflected invisible bullets with a little "pew, pew, pew!"

The third look was something I wanted to do with my dog.  She's a rap star, you know, right?  She does benefit concerts and stuff....I had a full scenario for her return to the stage after a leg injury but she just wasn't having it.   In my imagination, we were dressed as her former sister in a Mommy and Me contest.



She wouldn't play, so I filmed my October Ipsy and Sephora Play unboxings.  You can see that here:

I thought it would be so funny to dress up like another youtuber.  I picked Desi Perkins.  Here is my inspirational picture from Desi's Instagram:


And here I am being an older Desi.  I'm probably the only one who thought that was funny.

If you know me, you know I am glued to baseball playoffs and the World Series every year, and even more so when my team is playing!  Clayton Kershaw, the Dodger Ace, was due to pitch on Game 5 and I was ready!!!  Here I am as Kershaw's Killer Slider.

Polarbelle Halloween

Products:
White Grease Paint . @makeuprevolution Ghost Sculpt powder
@nyxcosmetics Milk Jumbo eye pencil
@collab lash primer from @sallybeauty . @katvondbeauty Hemingway Ink liner . @nyxcosmetics Vivid Liquid liner in the red color...which exploded but it worked out ok. . Let's go Dodgers!!!

And last but not least, I dressed up as a Polarbelle for Halloween.  When I meet a new person and they learn my online name, they always ask what a Polarbelle is.  I'm from Alaska, so I'm not a Southern Belle, right?  I am an Arctic Princess Warrier, a Polarbelle.  My fantasy interpretation of that is below.   I did film a video so expect to see the Polarbelle in action soon, although it all made my teeth look really yellow, so maybe that's too spooky of a video?


I had a lot of fun just throwing caution to the wind and playing pretend all week for the first time in 100 years.  Can you believe today is November already?!?  I won't dress as a turkey because I wear that costume all year, haha.  Did you do anything fun or get any cool candy this season?

Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare Deep Clean Detox Cleanser Review


Hey guys!  Today I wanted to tell you about a cleanser I've been testing from Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare.  It's called Deep Clean Detox Cleanser, ( 50 ml/$21 ).  It is an all natural, vegan and gluten free formula.  It is good for all skin types, including acne prone skin, and uses citrus essential oils and coconut surfactants to deeply remove impurities while also lifting away makeup.  To me, it smells like an orange peel and I absolutely love the scent.


The cleanser is dispensed by a pump top.  It looks a little like a gel when it comes out and when used with water, is a lightly foaming cleanser.  While it helps to remove acne and makeup, it does so without disturbing the lipid layer of the skin.  It works effectively without stripping or drying the skin.  After being rinsed away, the skin is left feeling slightly hydrated with a satiny finish.

Here are the ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxypropylsulfonate Laurylglucoside Crosspolymer, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Sodium Coco-Glucoside Tartrate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Sodium Cocoyl Hydrolyzed Amaranth Protein, Lauryl Glucoside, Citrus Sinensis var. Sanguina (Blood Orange) Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Oil, Santalum Austrocaledonicum (Sandalwood) Wood Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Hydroxypropylsulfonate Decylglucoside Crosspolymer, Gluconolactone, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate.

I want to tell you about the purpose of some of the ingredients in this product, straight from Osmosis.
Lemongrass - kills germs
Lemon, grapefruit and orange peel oils - antioxidants with purifying properties
Coconut surfactant - penetrates dirt and debris
Sandalwood oil - softens skin

The instructions will say to apply to damp skin and lather.  Use morning and night.  Leave on an extra 30 seconds for deeper cleansing.  With use, I think you might find clearer looking skin and a reduction in the look of pores, as I have.  This product is safe for all skin types.

I say this in every Osmosis review, (because it's true) - I regularly learn so many interesting things from the Osmosis blog.  I subscribe via email and it covers all kinds of things, not only Osmosis products, but so much more.  I really recommend subscribing.  You can learn more about Osmosis by following them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube.  Osmosis is one of my favorite brands and I hope you'll consider following and learning more about them.

How do you feel about natural skincare?  What is your favorite cleanser?  Have you tried Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare?
