Perfect Red Lipstick

22 Jun

Tomorrow is the perfect day to wear and rock red lips, sexy, sultry, and just right. BUT you need to wear it properly because if you don’t they could look very dry, and odd and if you don’t moisturize and exfoliate they will look flaky! EEk!! So to make you feel confident about your cute puckers here’s a great video showing you how to do it…
P.S. Don’t forget to blot it will make the lipstick stay on your lips and not all over everything else, for a perfect night. xoxo

DIY Suspenders for him

22 Jun

I found this cute tutorial on A BEAUTIFUL MESSand it is the perfect little gift for him💜

1. Supplies: 3 yards of elastic (ours was 1 inch wide), suspender clips, sewing machine. 2. Once you’ve made the correct measurements, simply attach the clips by putting the elastic through the hook so that the front of the clip isn’t on the same side as the end of elastic. Sew a straight line across the layers of elastic to secure the hook. Once you have clips on all four ends, you’re ready to to sew them together! 3. Layer them in an X form with back ends having about 5 inches of elastic. You’ll want the X to be longer in height than in width so that the suspenders aren’t too wide. Think of it as it could fit into the corners of a rectangle verses a square. Once it’s layered correctly, sew it together by topstitching a diamond shape through both layers.
The also have a few other great tutorials, a great one on how to make a bow tie and a great romantic painting.

Purple and pink cheetah nails tutorial

22 Jun

This is a really fun nail art to have and it’s pretty simple since there is no reason for perfection the little imperfections are what makes them look tres tres chic⚡

So this is what the finished product looks like

20120126-142109.jpg

you will need:
A lavender nail polish mines from sephora
A neon pink nail polish mines from Sally Girl
A black nail polish mines is Nabi
And a dotting tool
Oh and of course nail polish remover and some make up pads to use with it

* the pink nail polish is really neon. It for some weird reason didn’t photograph well.

So here is the simple way to do this:

20120126-142909.jpg
1. Coat your nail with the lavender color
2. Using a dotting tool (or the round end of a bobby pin) make random dots/squares with the pink. *But not to close to each other
3. using the smaller side of your dotting tool or a toothpick get black and make brackets [ ] and parenthesis ( ) around the pink dots
4. Finish by putting little dots in the empty spaces
voila! Your done let then dry and put a top coat if you’d like. I prefer not to because I like the way the texture looks
