Supergirl Outfit DIY

So I have been loving the new Supergirl TV remake as it shows Supergirl as a strong heroine but also a normal woman in the 21st century. Yeah she can be crazy strong but she is also vulnerable and is more human than she was portrayed in the comic books.

I loved reading Supergirl comics of my mum’s when I was a kid.

This is a DIY I made a year and a bit ago but never published on this blog. It is a really simple Supergirl outfit that is very cheep and anyone can do!

Gold Glitter Tip Nails

How to do a glitter tipped manicure. This does look really christmassy but could work well with other colours.

You can use any glitter but would recommend one that is very fine as this will be easier to use and will give the best results.

Oasis wish list

I was browsing Osais and I was filling up a shopping cart of all the things I can’t afford so I decided instead of waste this imaginary shopping basket of the things that I want I will make it in to a wish list blog.

I love the prints and colours of all these items mostly flower and butterfly prints as I am getting prepared for Spring and Summer. I know it is February but the snow drops are out so it is nearly Spring alright!

The striped dress I feel that would work all year round and I love the hint of the salmon pink colour within the blue.

Red Lip Look for Pale Skin

Think you can’t wear a red lip when you are really pale? Well think again as this is a great look for anyone who wants to rock a red lip without looking washed out.

Upcycle cans to a pen pot

So I fell down the pointers rabbit hole during the week and I decided to make myself a desk tidy/ pen pot for my cluttered desk.

It is made by using two cans, some paint, half a meter of ribbon and some super glue.

So to start off wash and dry the cans and make sure there is no sharp edges where the cans were opened. Then paint them, use a few layers to give a good texture. I used a tester pot of wall paint but acrylic works great.

Measure out the ribbon by wrapping it around the can and then secure. You need to use a strong glue so either super glue or a hot glue gun works well. Then stick the two cans together using the glue to make the pen pots together.

Pink and Chocolate Deluxe

This is a look that I have thrown together that uses the “5 Baked Eyeshadows-Chocolate Deluxe” palette from Makeup Revolution.

The main effect of this look is using the baked eyeshadows wet to create the foil effect on the eyes. The eyeliner that is the rusty gold shade was applied wet. It looks like a chocolatey brown shade with a gold tone over the top at the same time, it is so beautiful.

I love using pink and dark pink in your eye makeup however it can make it look like you have been punched in the face! So adding brown close to the eye can define your eyes and make a separation from the pink to the eye and that makes the eye look more defined and less like you have been in a fist fight.
