How to be a crab...

As I've mentioned before, I absolutely love fancy dress and this was one of my ideas from last year. I'm part of the University of Kent Sailing and Windsurfing Club and we had a 'Noah's Ark' themed social so, unlike everyone else who wore animal onesies, I got creative and went as a crab :)
If you want to know how to recreate this look keep reading...

You will need:

A black liquid liner/gel liner and a red lip liner. I used Bourjois Liner Clubbing in Ultra Black and Maybelline New York Colour Sensational Lip Liner in Hollywood Red.

To start, apply lip balm and do your everyday make-up.

Next, with your lip liner, line your lips and fill them in.

Draw 3 curved lines to make 'legs' on either side of your mouth as shown.

Then draw 2 little straight lines on your top lip as shown.

Then draw little crab claws onto the 2 lines you just drew.

Add two small black dots with your black eye liner onto your cupid's bow and you're finished!

Wear with a red dress, or a red outfit of your choice, and some red mittens for crab claws. I bought some cheap red mittens in h&m.
I hope I've inspired you to think outside the box for your next fancy dress outfit.
Much love,

Welcome to my blog...

After years of reading other peoples' blogs and watching countless videos on youtube from various gurus, I have finally decided to start my own blog. I've taken inspiration from my friend Rachel ( and set this thing up with the intention of writing about beauty, make-up, fashion and odd things that I want to share with internet randomers. I buy A LOT of shit in Boots so you can expect lots of product reviews as well as OOTDs, make up looks and also fancy dress ideas (I love fancy dress!).
I look forward to what, I hope, will be a fun little project :)
