Hi Girls, I hope your week has been going well. Woohoo for thursday!
About two months ago I was at the Other Art Fair here in London and the girl at the pop-up coffee shop there had a line of glitter painted slightly above her eyebrows. Although different, I thought it looked quite good. She told me that she and her friends went to loads of festivals this summer and had worn loads of glitter so she decided to keep it going by subtly adding it to her face, hence the eyebrow decoration. Anyway I tried two looks with this eye glitter that I found this MUA one for about $1.60
I literally just swept it on over my eyebrow and that was it.
I know its a bit weird but I think it adds a unique sparkle! What do you think?
This second look, if you read yesterdays post is inspired by stick on glitter eyeliner and is super simple.
1) Line your upper lash line with black liner.
2) Go over your eyeliner with a line of glitter. And you’re done!
Last month I went to my friend Katriona Flynn’s exhibition (more about this later) and besides being impeccably dressed, she had super cool glitter eyeliner that I was amazed with. She then told me it was a ‘stick-on eye liner’ that she bought for £2! I immediately went out to try it out and I think it’s pretty good to use on a night out. I used it for New Year’s and the good thing is that it cannot smudge! I’m alright at putting on my eyeliner and throwing glitter on it so its not a staple for me, but at £2 I don’t think there is much loss. Have you girls tried this? What do you think?
To make it stay longer use false lash glue to put it on!
I remember seeing Kristen Stewart in THAT outfit with that hair and thinking ‘wow she looks great!’ I am not a huge fan of her but lately I have been digging her style. Anyway if you are like me and have two hairstyles (down and up) then anything that’s easy and looks decent is a welcome change! This is where the Faux Undercut comes in:
Here are the easy steps:
1)Part your hair to the side.
2) Part your hair from the part down to your ear like below.
3) Part from your ear down to the other side of your ear like below.
4.)Twist or french braid your hair all the way down. French braiding is better but if you can’t then just simply twist and finish with bobby pins.
THE FINAL RESULT (Note my effort to resemble Kristen Stewart’s brooding)
I don’t know when it was that I learned to apply mascara but I think my cousin taught me to do so after she took a make up course. Ever since then, I have never looked back, so much so, that when I was working on this post, it took me a while to put it on with out using the right to left technique. It all started while on the underground I started noticing that girls don’t take advantage of the full benefit of their mascara because I saw that somewhere near the middle of the lashes towards the base there was no mascara at all! I noticed particularily with blonder or lighter colored lashes. I was thinking to myself what is the point of buying expensive mascara if your not going to apply it properly?! I want you to try this little experiment:
On one eye put your mascara on regularly (assuming that you dont have this tecqnique already). On the otherside use this technique:
1.Start at the base of your lash with your mascara wand.
2. As you are moving up wiggle the wand from left to right and continue to do this over all of the lashes.
Below is a video that helps with this tecnique. What do you think? Do you use this tecnique or do you have something better?
