Halloween Makeup Tutorial – Bleeding Face


I am running late with my Halloween post this year but I finally have it here for you all to see!

I wasn’t sure what I should create this year and when I did a quick search for inspiration I saw a picture of a girl with blood dripping from her eyes and decided I wanted to recreate my own version…
So if you are looking for inspiration for Halloween costumes/makeup hopefully this will help inspire you.


If you would like to create this scary bleeding face look for your Halloween costume this year then follow my quick tutorial below.
And don’t forget to let me know if you do it and post a photo!


These are the products I used to create this look.


Start with a clean face and pin hair back out of the way, you don’t want your hair sticking to the blood on your face. I’m using this very sexually appealing headband 😉


Apply a light foundation to your entire face to give you that pale sick ghostly look.
This was the lightest foundation I had.
And blend foundation in.
You can also go over the face with a white powder to make it lighter.


Then start applying eyeshadow.



You can use any colours for this look, however I chose to go with dark colours, greys, blacks, whites etc.

I used this black khol pencil to darken and line my eyes


And blend out black eyeliner


You then want to bring the grey colour down to darken your under eye and inner corner.


Apply mascara


Now it’s time for the blood!
Dab the blood under your eye area using finger or cotton tip


Using a cotton tip let the blood drip down your cheek from under your eye.
So that it creates a real dripping blood effect.


The creativity is in your hands for this part, you can do it to both eyes with as many drip lines as you choose.
You can stop there for a bleeding eyes look or continue on and do lips aswell

You want to look ghostly pale and dead so apply concealer or light foundation onto your lips


Then go ahead with the same steps using the cotton tip drip the blood off of your lips and let it run, apply wherever you want the blood to be


I then used this red lipstick on my actual lips because the blood didn’t stay on my lips and I didn’t want to get it in my mouth.


Then you can add other bits where you want them, I added a drop of blood from my nose and then darkened up my eyeshadow with a darker colour to create a more darkened bruised eye.
And your done! Now you can go scare people.
Add a creepy scary costume and go trick or treating or to a Halloween party.





Hope you enjoyed this scary halloween look.
Let me know if you recreate your own version in comments below.
Happy Halloween!

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Hello my Beauties,

I have been nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by the gorgeous Elisabeth from A little bit of everything and a whole lot of nothin’. So kind of her to nominate my blog! 🙂 I feel so honored and feels great to be noticed.
I think you should all go and have a look at her blog because it is fantastic.

I think awards like this are a great way to help you find other great blogs to read and it’s a nice way to let your fellow bloggers know that you love reading their blog, like giving a small gift of acknowledgment. And of course it’s a great way to find out a little bit about other people.

awardHere are the rules: 

    1. Thank and link to the blogger who nominated you.
    2. Answer the ten questions your nominator has provided.
    3. Nominate 10 other bloggers.
    4. Create ten new questions for your nominees to answer.

Everythingandnothin’s questions to me:

1.) How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for about 2 years on this blog.
Before that I had another personal blog which I had for many years.

2.) Do you watch Netflix, if yes, what is your favorite movie or show?
I don’t watch Netflix, however I have heard that it has just arrived in Australia which is pretty exciting because it sounds great. I go through stages where I get obsessed with shows and if I’m not working I watch the show and neglect all my other household duties.
The last TV show that I was obsessing over until I watched it all and now have to wait for the next season to be made 😦 was Pretty Little Liars, if you haven’t watched you must!

3.) Outside or inside?
Depends on my mood but I’m usually an inside person looking out..

4.) Best gift you’ve ever received?
This one is a hard one because I have received many great gifts from my family over the many years I have been on this earth and I couldn’t put it down to one ‘best’ gift.

5.) Favorite tradition?
I don’t necessarily have any traditions that I do all the time.
Except Christmas! I love Christmas day sitting around at home with family and friends however as the years have flown by and I have aged it just isn’t the same anymore, every year seems a little different a few more people some years and a few less others, but I like being able to spend the time with my close family and eat lots of yummy foods!

6.) Biggest regret in life?
Wanting to become an adult.
I hate having to do everything by myself! 😦 paying the bills, controlling the money, making sure finances are in order, making sure there is something on the table for dinner each night, driving myself places, doing all the washing etc. BORING!
I miss being able to shrug it off and say I’ll do it tomorrow I’m gonna go play now.

7.) Favorite hairstyle?
I don’t exactly have a favourite hairstyle, I’m a bit boring when it comes to my hair.
However I have always wanted the bob with longer hair at the front and shorter around to the back, I’m yet to have it though.

8.) Favorite app?
Probably Instagram but only because I use it the most.
If you aren’t already follow me @sammys_beauty_makeup

9.) Best beauty tip?
I have so many great ‘best’ beauty tips I couldn’t put it down to just one.
Make sure you blend your foundation down your neck so you don’t have a line near your chin that is a different colour to your skin tone.
Pink coloured concealers help remove the look of dark under eye circles.
A round flat top kabuki brush for liquid foundation gives the best flawless application and finish.
Put a card under your eyes when applying dark or glittery eye shadows to avoid getting fallout on your cheeks.
And soooo many more!

10.) One food you highly dislike?
This one is easy… Mushrooms!!
I find it easier to tell people I’m allergic so that I don’t have to go anywhere near them things!
Seafood is not my favourite either :s


My questions:

1.) Favourite Beauty product?

2.) Favourite beauty guru to watch on YouTube?

3.) One food you highly dislike?

4.) What is one Place/Country you would love to visit?

5.) Biggest regret in life?

6.) What is your favourite little luxury?

7.) Favorite tradition?

8.) Where do you write your blogs? Do you have a schedule?

9.) Best beauty tip?

10.) If you have spare time, what to you do?

Hello All!!

So I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by the beautiful Anastasiia!! At World Inspires You Create.
If you aren’t familiar with this award,

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming/new bloggers with less than 200 followers in order to get them more noticed and give them recognition/appreciation!!!
The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.
Blogging is about building a community and it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.

So thanks Anastasiia for nominating me!! 🙂
Everyone should definitely check out her blog, it’s great!
I hope to gain some more readers/followers to help grow my little blog community!
And I hope it helps the people I nominate!

How the Liebster Award works:

  1. Each nominee must link back to the person that nominated them.
  2. Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.
  3. Nominate 10 other bloggers you like and who have less than 200 followers.
  4. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Let them know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them!

These are the questions Anastasiia has given to me:

1. Where would you like to spend your next vacation? Any place, any activity. Money is not a problem:)
Definitely in America! I want to travel around America and do everything for as long as I want with my partner and buy as much as I want if money is not a problem! 🙂

2.  Do you have a pet at home? If yes, what’s his/her name.
I don’t currently have a pet at home (my family dog lives with my mum) I’m waiting til I can get an Aussie Bulldog 🙂

3. If you could choose any profession now what would it be? You instantly become a pro in your field
I would like to instantly be good at being a Lawyer but I also want to be good at Real Estate and at makeup and beauty, I can’t really choose one.

4. What is the worst make-up/hair care/body care/ product you have ever tried?
I honestly can’t think of a product that I’ve really hated probably for good reason to! Tried to remove it from my memory cause it was bad.

5. Is there something you can’t leave home without?
I can’t leave home without my mobile phone, I know that sounds bad but I don’t actually use my phone that much but I have to have it on me or near me so I know if I need to get in contact with my partner or family or something that they are just a phone call/text away, it’s like my safety blanket.

6. Do you have any habit which other people find strange?
I don’t know, I don’t think so.

7. Is there something you are obsessed about? Obviously, some of you obsessed with nail polishes:D
That’s me! I’m the nail polish queen! I love nail polish I need to have every colour and every shade of that colour and I know I don’t need them but I have to have it!  I’m also obsessed with Bulldogs!

8. How would you change you hair (length and color) if you could have anything on your head? Your hair can suddenly become long and dense and blue, for example:D
I would try out another colour maybe go dark brown or something and a short crop or something short and messy.

No I don’t have a lucky anything 😦

TAG – 40 Beauty question!

Hello everyone!

Thought I would do this tag to give you a bit of an insight into my world.
You might learn a few things about me through this.
And I tag all my readers to do this tag also.

How many times do you wash your face daily?
Usually once, in the morning. But it depends if I have been wearing makeup that day, if I have then I’ll wash it at night to get rid of the makeup.

What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
Combination skin, dry around the mouth/chin and middle of forehead and oily everywhere else. With extra oil on my nose! 😦

What is your current facial wash?
Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser

Do you exfoliate?
My face? Yes, I will exfoliate my face about every 2 weeks. The rest of my body? I don’t do often enough, I need to start exfoliating my legs more, that’s something I will be doing more of over the summer.

What brand do you use?
I make my own face exfoliator with sugar, oil and salt. (I know sounds nasty, but it isn’t)

What moisturizer do you use?
Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion

Do you have freckles?
Yes, just a few

Do you use eye cream?
Yes, I use Estee Lauder intensive age renewal eye crème, I have also used other Estee Lauder eye creams before this one.
Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I wouldn’t exactly say I have acne! But I do get the occasional pimple here and there. But I don’t get as many as I use to when I was younger. It’s never really been an issue for me.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?

What foundation do you use?
It depends what I’m doing for the day, the makeup look I’m going for and how much coverage I’m after, I change between 3 different foundations.
For a thick coverage I will use Revlon Age defying (not that I really need to defy age just yet)
For a lighter coverage I will use Face of Australia Lasting looks natural foundation
And if I’m just after a quick light foundation I will use a powder, Face of Australia mineral therapy foundation.

How about concealer?
I will use either the Essence cover stick or Estee Lauder double wear stay-in-place concealer

Do you know your undertone color?

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I don’t really like them, I prefer not to use them, they irritate my eyes and I find it difficult to put them on.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes. All makeup has a use by date.

What brand of mascara do you use?
I use lots of mascaras, depending on the look I am going for.
But I usually stick with my Clinique high lengths mascara it is the weirdest brush I have ever seen! With only one row of bristles but it is the best mascara I have ever used! It’s just amazing.
I have also been using Essence I heart Extreme crazy volume mascara a lot lately.

Sephora or MAC?
I’m not sure as I have never been to Sephora and don’t own any mac makeup

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?

What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Makeup brushes. Beauty Pod sponge, tissues.

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes sometimes, I use the bh cosmetics eye primer.

For the face?
Not usually but I have recently tried face base primer from Australis and am loving it, but I only wear it occasionally.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
Oh really!? I have a lot of favourites but I generally love using browns/gold/bronze colours or neutral shades

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I don’t often wear eyeliner at all because I suck at applying it but if I do wear it it’s usually pencil.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Very often!! I love this question, because I am terrible with this, I don’t know how I manage to do it all the time 😦

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I haven’t really used many to form an opinion yet, but I think they are harder to use.

Do you use mineral makeup?
Yes, refer to what foundations I use.

What is your favorite lipstick?
I have a few favourites, but at the moment I’m loving Avon’s ‘kiss me pink’ N06 from their totally kissable line.

How about lipgloss?
I love Lancôme Juicy tubes!

What is your favorite blush to use?
I don’t often wear a blush but when I do I always go for the same one Estee Lauder 01 Petal

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes! I usually always buy drugstore makeups.
I like high end products also though.

Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yes, I want to do a diploma of beauty therapy and learn all the ins and outs of makeup.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Sometimes I can be.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Really!? I have so many 😐
Badly drawn on or filled in brows, foundation that stops at the bottom of chin and doesn’t blend into neck, over lined lip liner, bright colours that look tacky and don’t match, bad bronzer, orange fake tan on the face,

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I like neutral more but I like coulourful shades if done properly and they work together.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
I love Kim Kardashians makeup look, it’s always neutral, nude colours.

If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
lipgloss or mascara I don’t know
Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes, I always go out without makeup, as I mentioned earlier I don’t always wear makeup.
I will usually go out with only moisturiser on my face and pawpaw ointment on my lips 🙂

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I think so? Natural beauty? I don’t feel like I need to put makeup on to make myself pretty or look good.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Oh that’s very hard.
Maybe Estee Lauder, probably because most of my products are from Estee Lauder, and I genuinely think they have great products.
I also like Avon for their lipsticks though and I like FOA for their foundations… I can’t choose just one!! D;
