The Halloween Night Essential You Can’t Go Without

Halloween Night Essentials

Trust us, we’ve all been there. You’re out at night having the time of your life and you pull out your phone to take pictures and videos of you and your friends, and then one out of two things happen: A) your phone is either dead or clinging on to life at 5% or B) you check yourself out in your camera and realize that you’re looking like a total mess from dancing around for hours.

These two tragedies can make the night go from 100 to 0 real quick. And with Halloween quickly approaching, we all want to look our best and be able to document all of our favorite halloween festivities. Whether it be parties, running through haunted houses, or putting your costumes together with your friends. Now, you’re probably wondering how you’re able to make the night go perfectly. And we’ve got you covered with The Beauty Bank. An illuminating compact mirror that serves as a portable charger for your phone!

Trick or Treating

Whether you are going trick or treating yourself, or you’re taking your younger siblings, it’s always good to have a fully charged phone with you. Going door to door and grabbing as much candy as possible on Halloween night is always fun. But when your phone is dead and you’re left without directions to get back home or a flashlight when it gets dark outside, it’s not going to be as much fun anymore!

The Beauty Bank can solve this problem! It can charge your phone fully up to two times so you’ll never have to worry about running out of battery.

Halloween Parties

Whether you’re going out to the bars or a party that your friend is having on Halloween night, you can definitely expect to break a sweat from the huge crowd and from dancing!

Save yourself time from waiting on the long bathroom line to check yourself in the mirror and just bring your Beauty Bank with you! Pull it out in the middle of the dance floor and it’s illuminating mirror will show you if anything is out of place.

Getting Ready With Your Friends

Planning out costumes with your besties and then getting together to do each other’s hair and makeup is easily one of the best parts of Halloween! However, there can’t possibly be enough mirrors in your friends room for all of you! Pull out the Beauty Bank if you’re stuck mirror-less and start getting ready!

And a bonus: keep your phone charging while you’re getting ready. It’ll be equipped to take thousands of pictures of you and your friends later in the night!

Halloween Costumes Inspired by VladaMUA

halloween looks inspired by Vlada MUA

We are two weeks into October and the Halloween spirit is officially at an all time high! We are super excited (and stressed!) about planning out our halloween costumes, but we’ve been drawing inspiration from our favorite master of the lip drip, Vlada Haggerty! Her artwork has helped us figure out some creative and trendy costumes, so we wanted to share our ideas with you!

Sugar Skull

A sugar skull makeup look for Halloween is great for those who want to express their creativity and artistic skills, but also don’t want to spend a ton of money on a costume. Vlada’s lip art here is inspired by sugar skulls, which originate from the Mexican holiday called Day of the Dead.

Grab some bright, colorful paint and think of your face as a canvas! Sugar skulls typically have flowers, spider webs, and other colorful patterns. Add some flowers to your hair and put on your favorite Little Black Dress and you’ve got the perfect costume!

Vampire

A classic vampire costume is always the way to go when you’re looking for a costume that will make you look hot, yet scary. This Vlada look features her popular lip drip design with melting lipstick that almost looks like blood. This design is actually featured on one of our cases! Click here to check it out.

All you’ll need to be a vampire this halloween is a white t-shirt that you can rip up, and visit your local halloween costume store for some fake blood and fangs. Put it all together and everyone around you will almost be convinced that you’re an actual bloodsucker.

Salt, Tequila, Lime

Looking for the perfect group costume for you and two of your BFFs? Well, what better way to represent an amazing trio other than an amazing trio? Salt, tequila, and lime! Vlada’s lime lip design here is actually also one of our cases! Check it out here.

In order to be the best salt, tequila, and lime trio on Halloween, you’re going to need a white dress for the salt, a green dress for the lime, and a gold dress with your favorite tequila brands’ name written in big letters across the top.

Alien

If you’re looking for a costume that is out of this world, then you should consider being an alien for halloween! All that you’ll need is metallic clothes and metallic makeup.

We recommend a pair of metallic shorts (any color that you’d like!) with a metallic silver body suit or cropped top. Add a lip color similar to the one in Vlada’s design here (that we also have as a phone case! Click here.) and a pair of alien antennas. All that you’ll need after this is a UFO.

Red Devil

Red lips are all the rage during the fall season so it’s no surprise that we just had to include two of Vlada’s red lip looks! Another fun costume idea that you can do with your best gal pal is angel/devil. If you happen to be the devil, we’re here to tell you exactly what you need!

Obviously, red devil horns are a must-have for this costume. You’ll also need a bright red dress and red heels. Add fishnet stockings to look extra fiery. Top it all off with a bold red lip like this and you’ll be the hottest one in the room. And not just because devils love fire.

We hope that some of these looks have inspired you to start the search for your Halloween costumes! Yes, it’s a lot of preparation for only one night, but Halloween is a day where you can be ANYTHING that you want to be. So you might as well make the most of it!

5 Beauty Tricks for Transitioning Out of Summer

5 Beauty Tricks for the end of Summer

With September just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about getting ready for fall! Personally, we’ve got pumpkin spiced lattes and cable-knit sweaters on our mind. But, before you jump into apple picking and hay rides, make sure to update your makeup for the new season! It’s important to transition your routine as the seasons change, so we created a list of five tips to get you ready for fall.

foundation, makeup

Get a new foundation

With the summer months comes warmth, sunshine, and tan skin! This means that the foundation you wore all year probably doesn’t match your skin tone anymore. So, it’s time to head over to Sephora and find your perfect match! Let’s be honest, there’s nothing worse than streaky foundation and a blunt line under your chin.

Change your blush

You’ve probably been rocking soft pink tones on your cheeks all summer long, which provided a stunning glow. As we transition into fall, however, it’s time to break out the warmer tones. Out with the pink and in with the mauve! These earthy tones will give off the perfect autumn vibes.

eyeshadow, makeup

Switch up your eyeshadow routine

Similar to your blush tones, it’s time to make the eyeshadow switch, as well. Instead of those bright, vibrant summer colors, start thinking about neutrals and browns. These looks are simple, yet so stunning! Not to mention, they go with nearly any outfit, so you’ll never have to worry about color coordinating.

Swap out your lip shades

Lips are one of the most crucial aspects of your transition from summer to fall makeup, because they make such a statement. While your summer lip shades were vibrant and fun, you can have just as much fun with some vampy fall shades! When switching to deeper autumnal tones, definitely don’t be afraid to go bold.

MOISTURIZE!

Last but definitely not least… MOISTURIZE! It’s no secret that when the weather starts to cool down, the dryness sets in. And, no one likes to put a fresh face of makeup onto dry skin and lips! So, save yourself the trouble and make moisturizing a part of your daily routine. It’s as simple as carrying an EOS lip balm in your bag!

We hope you love these ideas for transitioning from summer to fall makeup!

5 Must-Have Back-To-School Products

5 must have back to school products

We seriously can’t believe it’s August! Like most summers, this one flew by, and now we’re realizing that we have so much to do before September rolls around. So, we decided to get a head start on our back-to-school shopping by making a list of our top five must-have products.

Cute Pen Set

With cute pens like these, you’ll always be on point… no pun intended! Seriously though, what’s better than looking good and feeling smart?! We don’t know about you, but when our desk supplies are fresh and new, we feel on top of the world. Not to mention, these pens by Poppin are luxe gel ink, so they write smoother than anything you’ve ever used! We’re basically obsessed with this brand when it comes to office supplies, so you should definitely check them out if your desk needs a pick-me-up before the school  year rolls around!

Shop Poppin Pen Set

Clear Vinyl Pouch

Speaking of pens, we have the perfect place for you to store them… in the Don’t Need You pouch! Instead of simply tossing your school supplies in your oversized bag with the rest of the “sh!t you don’t need”, store it in your pouch within your bag. The extra layer of protection will do wonders. Not to mention, it will make it much easier for you to find the smaller things amongst everything else! We’re still fawning over how insanely cute they are! As you know, translucent bags are very on trend, so this one will fit right in! The Don’t Need You pouch should definitely be used by the daring girl who’s not afraid to give everyone a glimpse!

Chic Reusable Water Bottle

We love this product because it will help you to better your body, the environment, and your style all at once! BKR created these reusable glass water bottles in all colors and sizes so there are tons of styles to chose from. Not to mention, the use of glass instead of plastic is extremely eco-friendly, so you can feel good about the product you’re using! You can simply throw this in your school bag and refill it throughout the day.

Multi-Use Portable Charger

You didn’t think we forgot about the Beauty Bank, did you? This product is an illuminating compact mirror that serves as a portable charger for your Apple or Android device. It’s the perfect summer accessory for the on the go girl who wants to stay fresh and powered throughout the day. While we keep our beauty banks in our bags all year long, we find it especially useful during the busy fall months when we’re constantly out and about. So, you’ll never have to worry about your phone dying when you need it most. As long as you keep your Beauty Bank in your bag, you’ll be all set!

Shop Beauty Bank
bando, planner, agenda

Trendy Monthly Planner

Lastly, if you’re anything like us, you absolutely can’t live without your planner! It’s the perfect time of year to buy a new one, because most agendas are August-August. We found this Bando brand planner and we can’t get over how cute it is! Because let’s be honest… girl bosses are VERY busy. So, makes sure to get your hands on one of these ASAP. You don’t want to overbook yourself!
