Happy Halloween!!! I wanted to show everyone my super fantastic mermaid make-up for my Halloween Costume!
My friend Jessica assisted me with my make-up. Here’s a quick run down of what she did! I started with applying my normal concealer and foundation. Jessica then applied an eye shadow primer to the areas of my face where I wanted the scales. We placed a fishnet stocking over my face. Make sure the fishnet is centered and they aren’t too stretched out in any spots so that the scales are a consistent size. She used shimmery purple and green eye shadow to fill in the scales. We removed the fishnet and then she created a mixture of white glitter and white eye shadow to create a highlighter to fill in between the scales. I did my eye make up and added bronzer and highlighter. Jessica then attached my gems, pearls, and shells. We used eyelash glue to attach everything and it worked perfectly!
I was so impressed with Jessica’s talents! This is by far the best Halloween make-up I’ve ever had!!! Hope you all have a fabulous Halloween!!!
Hello! Today’s craft was lots of fun (and frustrating) to make! I was inspired to make my tiara by a Pinterest post. Unfortunately, mine didn’t go quite as smooth as the Pinterest post, but I’m incredibly pleased with how my tiara turned out!
What you’ll need:
-Pearl Paint (I used Martha Stewart Brand)
-Hot Glue Gun
The Pinterest post I found used a dollar store tiara, however I didn’t like the selection at the dollar store, a lot of the tiaras were made of plastic and weren’t going to hold up once the shells were attached. I purchased my tiara from Walmart. I made sure that the tiara had higher arches so that I had surface area to attach the shells. I started by painting the shells. Once they were dry, I started gluing the shells on from the center out. The glue situation was a little frustrating. Hot glue was good for a quick fix, however, it wasn’t holding up. I ended up using both wood glue and hot glue. The wood glue provided a stronger bond over time. I attached the tiny shells and crafting pearls using super glue. I love the way my mermaid tiara turned out! Hope y’all enjoy!!!
Hello! Here’s a fun little craft I found on Pinterest!
What you’ll need:
-Mod Podge (I used the spray not the glue)
-Battery operated Tea Light
Spray the inside of the mason jar with mod podge (or you can coat it with glue). Add glitter. I put the lit back on and shook the jar until the glitter covered the glass. Then, simply add a tea light to the inside and screw the glass on top of the lid. I added a little ribbon to match the decor in the room. Hope ya’ll enjoy!
I’ve been attending monthly card making classes with a Stampin Up consultant. Here are some of the beautiful cards we’ve made!
Not even a month into the fall and I’m already missing the warm weather and the beach!!!
A little coloring to get back in the swing of things.
