Welcome!

Hello my daisies and welcome to MyGoodnightLove, a "new" beauty blog that's found itself on the internet.

A little introduction to myself: my name is Bianca and I'm a London-based makeup artist with a passion for anime and a background in photography, theatre and fashion design. A few years ago, I had set up this blog and was quite active for almost two years and then decided to "spring clean." Two years on, I've returned and boy, do I have a lot to share with you!

From lipstick to candles, lattes to conventions, you'll be getting a variety of reviews and other exciting things on this website.

For those of you who still follow me after all this time, it's great to see you! For those of you who have just found me, it's a pleasure to meet you! My first post will be up soon, I can assure you. So please be patient and I hope you all enjoy.

Goodnight, love. x

The Hunger Games: a Katniss Everdeen look


As a major bookie, I picked up a copy of the Hunger Games - along with Catching Fire and Mockingjay - to see what all the hype was about a few months back. Reading each book in approximately seven hours each without stopping to eat, I got hooked and anxiously awaited the film adaptation which is premièring on March 23rd (yes, I'm British but I feel like month then day is more accurate). I was incredibly lucky to be able to snatch up two tickets to the advanced screening for my boyfriend and I - I'm the most amazing girlfriend ever, aren't I? - and so, I thought that I would create a Katniss inspired look before seeing the film, to compare my interpretation. Based on the interview scene where Katniss is described to have "huge dark eyes and full red lips", I toned it down and created something wearable and not too "Capitolised". I hope you all enjoy it! Tell me what you think. :)
