Red flowers (poinsettias are popular this time of year)
Cinnamon (sticks or ground)
sage (any variety, whole or ground)
white or yellow candle
Have a clear intention of what you want the spell to do. In my family there’s lots of disagreements around this time of year because of the high stress. Think about the “why” of the spell, and change the wording of the spell to fit your needs.
Gather your items in one place.
Light the candle
place the sage in the bowl
“Sage brings cleansing, may it cleanse my family’s souls”
place the red flower in the bowl
“red is the color of love, may it make us see the love we have for each other”
sprinkle or place the cinnamon in the bowl and say
“Cinnamon brings love, happiness and health to my family”
Write your intent on the paper “the family get together on this date will be peaceful, loving, kind and happy”
put the paper in the bowl and say
“I call the spirits one by one to help this goal come to pass”
drip the wax that has melted from the candle on to the contents of the bowl
“the wax of this candle will bind us together”
meditate over it for a few minutes. visualize in your mind your family getting together and having a good time.
Extinguish the candle
you can bring the items to a river, lake or pond and put them in there
you can burn the contents outside at nighttime
“Now is the time of Nyx’s Three, This spell is bound with harm to none, so mote it be“
Are you ready for super dark lids and a bright orange lip?
The eye look is pretty much a solid black, with hints of chocolate around the edges, and that orange is REALLY orange, so it’s not for you if you aren’t ready for strong makeup!
But of course, feel free to switch out the lip color for any other bright shade you like!
It WILL work for girls with glasses, because your frames and lenses make it a lot less dramatic looking, so technically you can get away with a LOT more eye makeup, since subtle looks are not very noticeable. Just take it easy on the mascara so your lashes don’t push up against your glasses too much. (The look is so dark you won’t need big lashes anyway.)
Base: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector All-in-1 Perfecting Cream SPF 21 (testing this one out; it’s great for oilier skins!)
Concealer: Make Up Store Cover All Mix
Powder: ClearLast powder in Matte Ochre
Blush: NYX Cinnamon blush
Eye Kajal: Shahnaz Hussain Kajal (I bought this stick kajal off eBay from India. Try VDL’s Eye Bomb Mega Smoky Pencil or a kajal from Bourjois. That, or even black gel liner from a pot!)
2 Dark brown shadows in one cool and one warm tone: NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Cordura
Mascara: Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest Black
Orange lipcolor: OCC Lip Tar in Beta
Last tip: If you have oily lids, pack a matte black shadow over the black portions of the lid so your kajal doesn’t smudge or crease.
Story: Nyx lost his father at a young age so he had to be the “man” of the house. Nyx cut his hair and did it like his father so his mother would be okay. He did the hunting for food (best he could), House watching, and making runs for his mom. During and attack at the village a boy was about to be attacked but Nyx jumped in the way to save him. King Regis had come to the village to help fight. (This is before noctis was born and his wife died.) He saw Nyx trying to fend off a monster, so king Regis gave him so magic. With that Nyx fought back the monsters and saved the boy who was Libertus. After that Nyx was named a hero and he made a new friend. He also from that day forth dedicated himself to King Regis for saving his that day.
Finished drawing Nyx Ulric as child
So happy the way he turned out, I love this little cutie globs.

HOW TO: Easy Peasy 10 Minute Peachy Glow Makeup by Sade
More often than not, i’m in a rush in the mornings. As a student, I find it almost impossible to find time to do my makeup the way I want during the oh-my-gosh-i’ve-woken-up-ten-minutes-before-my-lecture times, but i’ve found this no-makeup makeup look does the trick. It makes you look like you’ve slept for 6 hours plus, when in reality you’ve been up watching Netflix in your underwear and worrying about the essay you haven’t started at 4am. Joan Smalls rocks the no makeup makeup look perfectly.
What I Used:
Iman BB Creme in ‘Clay Med Deep’ MAC Mineralize skin finish natural in ‘Dark’ Sleek Contour Kit in ‘Medium’ NYX Blush in ‘Cinnamon’ L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara Collection 2000 Extreme Felt Liner MUA Lipstick in ‘Nectar’
