Makeup Mon...errr Tuesday: Green Eyes

Makeup Mon...errr Tuesday: Green Eyes
First, I know it's Tuesday and I'm predictably late with Makeup Monday. I hope the lack of alliteration doesn't detract from the post; I promise that I have lots of great excuses for not putting this up yesterday. Or, I fell asleep. One of my first forays into the wonderful world of bright eyeshadow was with a beautiful shade of green from Milani (whose older shadows were amazing), and I was forever hooked. Green has since become the most popular color in my rather large makeup collection, though I can't remember the last time I gave them a proper spotlight. That was rectified immediately, upon my recent purchase of the Urban Decay Black Palette, which has a beautiful dark emerald that was surprisingly missing from my arsenal. For this look, I only used the dark green in the palette, Libertine, and the primer potion. For step by step instructions on how to achieve this look, continue reading after the jump! This will make the colors pop and keep them from creasing. Related:  féminine

Pillowcase Sundress : Daily source of DIY craft projects and... By Nikol Lohr Sundresses made of cute vintage pillow cases aren’t just for little girls. If you have a pair of pillowcases, you can make a dress that fits up to a size XL. Look for pillowcases in solid colors or that aren’t too worn out. Thin white cases mean you’ll either need to line them (just cut out some washed white cotton in the same shape as your skirt pieces and sew double layers), or relegate the resulting see-through dress to nightie status. Materials 2 pillowcases, preferably with fancy cuffs, pressed standard/queen for a short dress; king for a longer dress Sewing machine Scissors Straight pins Safety pin Thread Iron Note: I used a serger to finish edges and to sew the simple seams, but it’s not really necessary. Directions Step 1: Turn pillowcases inside-out and trim short seamed sides. Step 2: Measure 4″ in from corner near other seamed edge on first pillowcase. Step 4: With right sides facing, fold one of those pieces in half lengthwise. Step 18: Snip off two 3″ pieces.

DIY - MAKE YOUR OWN WAX FOR HAIR REMOVAL - Fashion + Beauty on Shine I was chatting with someone on my flight back from my vacation.

The Convertible "Infinity" Dress: How it almost defeated me, and ... I made this thing. It’s pretty cool. It’s a convertible dress that’s basically a circle and two straps, so it’s really easy, inexpensive, and crazy versatile. It’s been around forever and everyone seems to love it (in fact, part of the reason I’m posting this is to answer some questions for people I’ve run into), and I can hardly believe how close I came to not making it at all. I first found the instructions at a blog called rostitchery, and then I came across a second set at Cut Out + Keep. So I bought some material, spread it out in the living room, cut out my pieces, and… …stopped. I didn’t understand the next step. Turn the skirt inside out? And what’s this about making them overlap each other? There’s, like, a band of fabric involved? What? I figured I was just being thick. So I folded up my circle and my straps and I put it all back in the bag it came in. And I went upstairs to watch TV. I was wearing my new dress after about half an hour.

Pastel Colors with Gray Look With Easter coming up on Sunday, I felt like creating a pastel makeup look with a twist. I surrounded some pastel colors with gray, because it made me think of winter transitioning into spring.
