Galaxy Shoes a DIY Tutorial

I love crafts, and I always had the intention of including easy DIY projects into the blog but it was never something I thought about before making something. So this is my first, (hopefully I’ll think it through a bit more next time and get better pictures!).

Originally I was going to completely cover these high heels in studs but last night I changed my mind and decided to ‘paint’ them instead.

This is a great way of using up those old bottles of nail polish, (if you are anything like me you probably have plenty!)

STEP 1:

Gather your materials

Old gluggy nail polish in your chosen shades

(you can use fabric paints but these polishes are getting to the point of being un-useable and I thought it was a great way of finishing them off)

Paint Brush

Sponges (optional)

Glitter

Glitter Glue

A Bair of Fabric Shoes

(the fabric will kind of absorb the paint and is less likely to chip than if the were patent leather)

what you need

Braided Hair Bun using a Hair Donut

dress me up hair donutMy new video features and item that has been around for quite a some time but seems to be overlooked, hair padding. They have been used by hairdressers to get secure volume for formal occasions for decades but are so quick and easy to use I think everyone should give the old hair donut a go! In the following video I have used a large size Dress Me Up Hair Donut that I bought from I-glamour a little while ago with some other hair padding items to do a series on. These ones (for the large) retail at $13.95, its really something that will last for years.

This video is for more of an intricate look but if anyone is interested I can do a straight forward version of it too (minus the braiding). (I have cut my hair to my shoulders but it still covers the large size) (more…)

Mermaid Makeup Tutorial – Halloween

Mermaid MakeupAfter doing the wave envy trial video I felt the need to do a mermaid makeup tutorial so here it is!

As it wasn’t planned I wasn’t entirely sure where the look was going to end up but I’m fairly happy with the outcome. The main thing (if I had to do it again) I would change would be bringing in the scales into the top and center of my forehead. Plus maybe filling in the eyebrows a mix of blue and purple, but of course these things only hit me when I’m looking at still images after I’ve filmed. Oh yeah and not doing it when my eye’s were gross and death like ha!

Decades Past 1970’s Inspired Hair

hairfinishedContinuing on with the 70’s inspired makeup tutorial I posted last week I have a 70’s inspired hair video for you.

In the video I used the BabylissPro C Styler which was one of the fabulous hair tools that IGlamour sent to me in the past few months to do some looks/reviews with. Full review of the C Styler will be up after I post the video on how to use it for curls and waves.

I also used BabylissPro Argon oil that I purchased to trial, One n Only Ceramic Silk Curling Iron Glaze and Schwarzkopf 10 carat shine finishing spray.

Decades Past – 70s Inspired Makeup

The 70’s is where my interest starts to fade, probably why this has taken me so long to continue on with in the series. I say inspired because although ‘Sun Kissed’ looks were popular in the decade its not entirely era specific. So onto the video!
