Halloween is right around the corner and to be honest I’m far too excited for a woman in her 30’s.
One of my favourite things since I started my Instagram and blog has been discovering the outstanding Halloween collections that brands grace us with year after year.
I swear they’re becoming more and more bold (which I’m all for!) and although not necessarily frightening they really do strike the perfect balance between childhood nostalgia and a love of all things spooky.
I’ve rounded up some of my favourites to give you all of Halloween feels in preparation for the big day (or night).
If you’re a fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas (and of course you are, who isn’t?) then you’ll know the time old debate surrounding the seasonal target of the film. Was it made for Halloween or Christmas?
Well director Henry Selick confirmed back in 2017 that it was intended to be a Halloween movie whilst Danny Elfman who beautifully set the tone of the film with his music said that whilst it’s clearly about Christmas he always considered it to be a Halloween film.
I’ll just carry on watching it from October until December every year just to be sure. That seems like the sensible thing to do, right?
That’s right. I am the Pumpkin King!
Anyway, last year Makeup Revolution absolutely smashed it out of the park when they realised a whole collection celebrating the cult classic and and so pleased to be able to say it’s still just as popular a year later!
The whole aesthetic is classic nightmare and I’m living for it. Striking the balance between childhood nostalgia and adult functionality perfectly.
My only regret is picking up only half of the collection but you know, adult stuff comes first apparently 🙄
Just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it!
