Teampixie is now stocking Grimas pure lipstick  

Grimas pure  does not contain any chemical preservatives (such as parabens) or halogenated organic compounds. The ‘Pure’ products, like all Grimas products, are gluten-free and unperfumed.) It does contain a taste component (fruit) that is legally required to be declared as a perfume. 

There is a wide range of matt shades of Lipstick (Pure), including Base Pure – a clear lipstick that can be mixed with all other shades to make a colour more transparent. The range also boasts a number of glossy Pearl tints in addition to the matt colours

To emphasise the contours or to change them, use a lip pencil to draw lines, working from the outside inwards. A very thin layer of Grimas Anti Shine can be applied as a primer for extra adhesion. If the lips are dry, first apply a thin layer of Grimas Lipstick Base Pure. To prevent Lipstick (Pure) from running into any creases around the mouth, you can apply a thin layer of Grimas Camouflage Make-up Pure to the lips beforehand.
Take the Lipstick (Pure) onto a spatula (even if you are working from a stick) and apply it with a lip brush. First colour the middle of the lips and then colour the edges, working from the outside inwards. Dab the result with a tissue to matt it off. To make the lips ‘kiss-proof’, powder the matt Lipstick (Pure) off copiously with Grimas Fixing Powder.

Prosthetic wound

At Pixiedust  we are always on the look for fun new products and its important to us to test and try them  before we add them to the website ( that’s the fun part)

This week I received a sample of a prosthetic wound that’s part of the new range buy Ghoulish, we love their masks and their wound did not disappoint. 

The piece I received had lovely thin edges and was quick and easy to apply .

I applied the wound  using mehron spirit gum and then went around the edge with some kryolan  latex .

I added some make up with a bruise wheel and some blood to the wound .

 We are hoping to stock this product for this coming halloween.

Countdown to Book Week

With book week fast approaching this weeks blogs will focus around ideas for book week.

All young children love winnie the poo and his wonderful friends. but this book week idea is from my favorite A A Milne poem. “Buckingham Palace” 
Buckingham Palace by Alan Alexander

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
Alice is marrying one of the guard.
"A soldier's life is terrible hard,"
Says Alice.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
We saw a guard in a sentry-box.
"One of the sergeants looks after their socks,"
Says Alice.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
We looked for the King, but he never came.
"Well, God take care of him, all the same,"
Says Alice.

Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
They've great big parties inside the grounds.
"I wouldn't be King for a hundred pounds,"
Says Alice.

A face looked out, but it wasn't the King's.
"He's much too busy a-signing things,"

"Sure to, dear, but it's time for tea,"

ben nye cream stack up

If you travel a lot or only have limited storage available, stackableBen Nye cream makeup will be an essential addition to your makeup kit. No matter which color you choose or however many you purchase, each Ben Nye cream stack up container will screw into another - giving you a simple and neat transportation & storage solution.

Review on the ben nye color stack ups on make up ally.
“One of the most inexpensive and versatile products in the market. These creme colors are around $2.50-$4 each and you really only need the primaries: black, white, red, blue, yellow. It does pretty much everything as foundation/lipstick/eye shadow/eye liner. Having this product got me though a lot of beauty buy urges, like orange lipstick or dark purple lipstick (yes I'll probably use those two products once in my life). Instead of buying those, I just simply mixed some Ben Nye colors together and used it on my lips. I staying power is much better than regular lipstick too. Since they are soo pigmented, they also look better though they are a little drying so bring out the aquafore “

How to make it look like you have cut of your finger.

Roll the wax into a sausage and then join the ends to make a ring of wax. Press the ring of wax into position; making sure the skin is clean and dry.

Using a tiny bit of moisturiser on your fingertip (enough to stop the wax sticking to your finger and no more) blend the outside edges of the ring of wax, you should not be too precise as slightly rough edges look more realistic. 
Give the wound a jagged edge, and with the bruise wheel add the bruising. 

Don’t forget to add bruising to the other fingers and nails on the hand. 

Add a bit of cotton wool to the center of the wound blood .

Add blood to the center of the wound .

With the wounded finger bent hold a few sheets of tissue paper to cover the rest of the finger. 
Simple but effective look!
