You wanna know what I’m loving?

I’ve been loving the Dior’s Runway looks on the models! It’s very minimal, but very glammed up! The eye make up has a slight crease-cut, and a winged eyeliner, along with a clean finished eyebrows!

Makeup artist Pat McGrath adorned models’ lips with red gemstones for a look that was very reminiscent of ruby red slippers. This sparkling take on lipstick might look complicated, but in terms of a DIY, it’s easier to test out at home than the newest nail art trend.

To get this look, you’ll want to adhere tiny gemstones overtop of a tinted lip. Traditional lipstick will be too slippery—instead go for something without a sticky texture or added shine, like a lip stain.  Let the lip tint dry for a few minutes before you start adding the sparkle. Now the fun part: use eyelash adhesive, and start to stick the gemstones to your lips. You will need two sizes of gemstones, the slightly smaller size for the outline and bigger to fill in your lips. Add the gems to the outline of your lips first and then fill them in. Also note that the lips at Dior have an almost exaggerated bow, so if the gemstones sit slightly outside your natural lip line, that’s okay.

The key to making the Dior gemstone lip last is all in the timing: this look is ideal for a night out where no eating is involved—and preferably one where any drinking can be done through a straw. Think you’ll try this at home? Share pictures if you do!

DIY: Cute Glass Containers!

I’m here today with a new DIY idea! I just LOVE DIY projects! Apart from the fact that you could revamp old stuff, you actually can have fun with it, (atleast I know I do!)

So let’s get this started!

Image

You will need:

  • An old brush.
  • Glitter (Colour of your choice).
  • Some heavy duty crafts glue. (Suitable for glass)
  • Glass container of your choice.
  • A safe workplace.
  • A towel.
  • Old Plate.

Image

 First off, peel off any stickers, and  wash the glass container very thoroughly, then wipe the container till dry with a towel. This is to ensure that the glue has a good and clean base to stick on to. 

Image

Unseal the glue cap.

Image

 Use the plate to pour a generous amount of glue, then pour in the glitter and mix well, until you obtain a good consistency. If the glue is too runny, add more glitters, and if it’s too chunky, add more glue.

Image

 Get your brush, and dip it into the mixture that you’ve prepared, and paint the insides of the container. Paint even strokes to ensure so you avoid gaps. Voila! ImageImage

Now, make sure to give your container at least 24hrs to dry completely!

This is a really easy DIY, and a very good way to glam up your room. I use these containers to store little nicknacks, like bobby pins, hair bands, makeup brushes, etc. It keeps my things organized, much, much better.

I hope you enjoyed this! Do try it out and show me what you came up with!

Love Always,

DIY: How to Fix a locked SD card

Remember that memory card that accidentally fell and broke the lock toggle? You don’t? I know I do. So about a year or 2 ago, I had a bunch of SD cards, but one fell and was locked, so I replaced it with another one. Well with this tutorial, you don’t have to replace, or buy a new one! Here’s how!

Image

You will need:

  • A scissors
  • Tape
  • A Q-tip, cotton swab, or whatever you want to call it.
  • Your SD card (of course)

Image

So this is my broken SD card. You can kind of see the toggle missing, unless you’re unfimiliar with SD cards. Anyways, to fix our problem, we need to know the problem. The plastic toggle is there to activate a switch in the device (like in digital camera) not on the card. To get the device to see the card as unlocked, you need to replace the toggle. Which is what we’re going to do!

Image

Get the cotton swab/Q-tip and start pulling out the cotton part to form a string like shape, or a shape the fits the place of the toggle. You can roll the cotton between your fingers for effective results. Once you reach the desired width of the string, just cut of the excess length.

Image

Secure the cotton string/strip in the place of the plastic toggle. Cut out a small piece of tape, to tape on the strip and secure it in place. (Make sure however you do not tape over metal chips or anything but the cover of the card).

Image

With that, you are done! I know, it’s simple, but it is useful, and saves up a lot of trips to the electronic department!

Love Always,

Shamma. x
