MAKEUP REVIEW!

Okay, this is my very first makeup review! So exciting! So recently I took a trip to my local drugstore which was CVS! Yay! I bought a few things, so first off Eye shadow. I am in love with Color Tattoos Metal by Maybelline! I bought both Barely Branded and Inked in Pink. I found both of these eye shadows to be fabulous! For the Barely Branded it is a Champagne color with a touch of glitter to it. Metallic looking. Great pigment to it. I really liked this eye shadow because it was so neutral yet it could still be noticeable.



 My next eye shadow that i bought was also the Color Tattoo Metal made by Maybelline. The name of this eye shadow was Inked in Pink. This was a beautiful pink that was also Metallic. Neither of these eye shadows creased which was great! I found that this looks very cute with little in your inner eye and/or under your bottom lash line.

My first time using liquid liner and it was great! This liner by Milani was brilliant! The line was super thin and was just what I was looking for. After looking up plenty YouTube videos of how to apply liquid eyeliner i found the key is to KEEP A STEADY HAND BY HAVING YOU ELBOW REST ON SOMETHING STURDY AND RESTING YOUR HAND UPON YOUR CHEEK. I applied this to my upper lash line and the line came out as best as i could possibly wish for!
 My last product that i bought was some lipstick. Color Whisper by Maybelline. One Size Fits Pearl. This lipstick is a cute color but its alone the lines of pink and neutral. If your going for a bright color of lipstick then this is not your choice but if your going for a light shimmer then this is it! When applied it has a smooth silky feel to it which is nice and it doesn't have the uncomfortable feel to it!


DIY OMBRE!

DIY OMBRE!

What You Need:

  • Buttoned-Up Shirt
  • Bobby Pins
  • Colored Dye. I used the Rit Liquid Dye, i find it easier than the powder.
  • Salt (It aids to the dyeing, and keeps the color sustained.)
  • Ruler
  • Bucket(Or something large enough to dip your shirt in! Example: A Pot)
  • Gloves (optional but preferred if you don't want color hands.)

Preparation:

1. On your button up, measure out an inch to 2 inches increments. (roughly) Place a bobby pin at each increment on both sides of the shirt. This way you'll know how far to dip.
2. Boil water, and when it's done pour into bucket. (Amount of water depends how much dye you are using.)
3. Add the dye. On the back should say the amount to use.
4. Also add a teaspoon of salt into bucket.
Now your ready to start dyeing! :)

1st dip hold shirt under the dyed water for 30 seconds.
bring up and prep for 2nd dip
2nd dip submerge to the 2nd bobby pin and hold for about 1 minute.
Bring up and prepare for 3rd dip.
3rd dip submerge the shirt to the 3rd bobby pin and hold for 5 minutes.
Bring up.
4th dip submerge shirt up to the 4th bobby pin and hold for 5 minutes. bring up.
Last dip.
Submerge to the 5th bobby pin and hold for the last 5 minutes.
Bring up and give it a good ring. 
You don't want it dripping all over so this step is important.


Looking good!
Hang on a coat hanger for at least a day to fully dry. Or until you feel its dry enough! Then toss into a cold water wash (by it's self) and run it through. Hang again and let dry.

Final Product!
