I use a range of different Makeup from high street to department store but one of my favorites is MUA because its soo cheap most of their range is 1£. I also always get complimented when I wear their lipsticks!!!! So this is my little review/test for you.
Shade 13, Shade 12, Shade3 , Shade 15, Shade 16
Shade 15-Juicy and Shade 16- Nectar
These two are quite similar in color and I love them for a coral nude. Since they do stick on every crack of your lip because I feel they are more like a balm I put on some nivea cream then a little bit of foundation before putting them on.
Shade 3, Shade 12
These two pinks are soo cute. Shade 3 is bright pink and is a good day alternative to red. Check this post out for another view of the color! This one doesn’t dry out your lips and last quite long but it does transfer easily! Shade 12 is pink with glitter in it and it is buildable. You can layer it for a darker pink or keep it simple.
Finally there is Red! I love this color. It is bright red and I swear I get random people asking me where I bought this. Also I have had to buy it for so many of my firiends from the states. This one doesn’t dry out your lips and last quite long but it does transfer easily! Check out this other post for another view of this color!
What are your fave summer colors? Do you have any cheapies? Or even expensive ones that you really like?
This is a tassel/drop raven’s skull bracelet from Topshop
This is a drop chain bracelet I made a couple years back!
I have been seeing these drop chain and tassel style bracelets EVERYWHERE! I really like them because they can look quite dainty but in fact these are SUPER easy to make! Below is the DIY. I just want to stress that once you have the materials below you can make so many things!!
- Chain-Any kind you like you can get them at craftstores or on ebay for like £1
- 2 -Open Jump rings (I told you these would come in handy)
- 1 Charm -you can choose whatever you like (you can find these on ebay or at a craft store)
- 1 clasp- Ebay or Craft store
- Round Needle Nose Pliers- Ebay or Craft store
- Nail clippers
1) Wrap the chain around your wrist and then decide how much of a drop (how much you want it to hang) you want.
2) Using the nail clippers, cut the chain where you want it to end.
3) I made this bracelet a couple of years ago but as you can see it is really simple. The charm is attached to one side and the clasp is attached to the other side.
4) You are going to attach the chain to the charm using the jump ring (the one in the middle).
5) Using the needle nose pliers, open the jump ring. Slide the charm on one end and the chain on the other then close it.
6) You will attach the chain and the clasp using the jump ring.
7) Using the needle nose pliers, open the jump ring. Insert the chain on one end and the clasp on the other then close it.
8 ) If you like you can attach another jump ring where you tie your clasp to make it easier, or not.
Tadah this is the finished product! What do you think? Easy? Will you be trying it?
I love jewelry. Did I ever tell you I made and designed my own jewelry for a while? Anyway I thought this would be good post because I am always fixing or making jewelry for my friends when in reality most of what I do is really easy. Also I know a lot of us indulge in jewelry at forever21 or Topshop although they can snag pretty easily. So this is a tutorial on how to fix your broken jewelry. I promise if you get the tool and a couple findings (listed below) it will make your jewelry last so much longer!
You know how having a needle and thread is handy for patching up holes or rips. Well this is another tool you should have handy, it is literally the Godfather of jewelry tools...’round nose pliers’ the best thing about them is that they are cheap and you can get them for under $5 from craft stores or ebay. You can also get them with a pack of tools which I also recommend and will get to later.
These are the ‘findings’ (jewelry parts) most commonly needed to fix broken jewelry. They are open jump rings (in multiple sizes), and ear hooks (in silver and/or gold), and you can buy packs of them for like $2.
This is the broken jewelry I have been storing for a day like this. See if you can spot the damage.
These Turqouise earrings are missing a jump ring where I am pointing out.
You can open and close jump rings with the nose pliers. For these earrings I opened the jump ring with the pliers.
Then I stuck one of the holes on one end and the other hole in the other. Then I closed the jump rings with the pliers.
Don’t ask how both of the earhooks fell off of these earings and I still managed to not lose them because I have no idea. For these I needed jump ring and an ear hook.
I openend the Jump ring and I stuck the leaf on one end and the hook on the other, then I closed the ring.
Again these earrings needed jump rings. One of them was still attached so I just needed one for the other earring.
I opened both of the jump rings and put one side of the earring on one end and the other in the other end and then I closed it.
This necklace (mom’s) again missing a jump ring (see how useful!). I didn’t have a gold jumpring but I tried to mach it as best I could.
So what do I do now? Open the jump ring and stick one part on one side and the other and the other side, then close.
Again this is a charm that needs a jump ring in order for me to string it on to a necklace. So what do we do?
Tah Dah! Six born again pieces of jewelry that I can wear again. Have a look at your own jewelry and see if you can spot the jump rings or other connectors.
Do you get it? Is this at all helpful? I sometimes think these things are so easy that I don’t know how much I actually need to detail. Anyway let me know if you have any questions or need help on a different piece.
I honestly can’t believe I haven’t done a style icon post for Farrah! Her Iconic feathered hair is something I desperately longed for in High School when layers came back. I was also obsessed with finding vintage t-shirts (before vintage-style went on the high street) and wearing them with flare jeans and converse like in the seventies. She was so tan and chic as well; If you notice none of her outfits look over the top but instead they look simple and effortless on her.
