Can we just take a moment to thank Tim Burton for his amazing, crazy movie characters? Like the awesome portrayal of the Mad Hatter? I mean honestly, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland was a makeup and costume artists wet dream (sorry, I never claimed this blog was PG13).
Let’s just go ahead and say it: Johnny Depp seems to take to makeup rather well. I mean, just look at the characters he plays.
Anywho – I was asked to take part in a Mad Hatter Tea Party themed photoshoot and I made sure to practice on my very patient and accepting little sister before I attempted the makeup look on a complete stranger; who was depending on this shoot for her business.
Shameless bragging: isn’t my sister gorgeous?!? If I didn’t love her so much, I’d hate her.
The super awesome thing about the Mad Hatter is you can go crazy with colour and not have to worry about it being overboard, since the Mad Hatter is overboard himself!
I did a dark purple on the lid, then a blue in the crease and to the outer corner of the brow. I kinda flicked it up a little to give it shape. I made sure to leave some space in between the blue shadow and the brows though. I added a bright pink colour below the bottom lash line and took it down quite far, then made sure to add nice, black eyeliner all the way around the eyes.
You could do the brows in any colour really, but I decided to go with an orange colour to stay true to Mr. Hatter.
And don’t forget some crazy lashes!
I finished off the look with bright pink blush contoured with a little purple eyeshadow and a bright pink lipstick.
What are you dressing up as for Halloween?!
I have an awesome post for you guys today! You’ve probably heard of wet n’ wild – it’s an amazing budget-friendly brand that has recently released an app that allows you to use a photo to figure out what products you need or “Steal the Look“.
As you saw on Instagram this is the look I decided to steal. According to the app, the products on the left are all products I can use to get the look. Let’s see how it did!
I think we almost nailed this look right on the head – don’t you beauties? Would you like to steal your own look and have the chance to win your own? I’ll show you how!
Download the app HERE - or search “Steal the Look” in your app store.
Choose a photo and select “camera roll” or “gallery” from the main page of the app. It will work best if you choose a photo with eyes and lips in the photo.
This photo doesn’t show the lips but you can move the photo within the box to get just the right colour, and move the slider as well. You just tap and the colour shows up.
Do the same with the upper lid and crease.
After you choose your colours, you’ll be asked to choose your skin tone – then an awesome little graphic will show up and your look will be created with a product list!
How awesome is that?!?! Wanna try for yourself?
Once you’ve curated your look using the app, take a screenshot of the final outcome (the photo above) and upload it to Pinterest or Instagram and use the hashtag #CBBStealTheLook feel free to tag me and Wet N’ Wild too (we’re both on Instagram)! Then get the URL for the post and come back here to enter the giveaway! You can repeat this every day for the next two weeks! Are you ready to Steal the Look with Wet n Wild?! Get going!

I don’t know if I’ve ever told you much about my hair. I probably have… but my hair is very thin and gets oily fast. I have struggled with finding a good balance of products that help my hair feel healthy, doesn’t dry it out and allows me to shampoo at least every other day without it looking too gross. Here’s the latest in my search for hair products for thin hair.
I’m going to tell you how Lush’s hair products measure up in my books.
I need to get on top of some posting. This post marks a long line of scheduled posts since I have a TON of product backlog that I need to test, photograph, swatch and dish about.
I received this package a few weeks ago and I’ve been too busy (also lacking in the bath plug department) to test them. So when Natalie said she was going to do an introduction and then share her thoughts on these products in Bathtime Beauty posts I was inspired. So I will be doing the same. Between now and Christmas I aim to take at 12 Baths and share my bathing experiences with you. More to come.
For now, let me introduce you to this little gem of a Canadian company: The Canadian BathBombCo. This company makes Canadian made bath bombs and they are to die for.
