SNAGGED: DIY Caviar Manicure

I fell in love with Ciate’s Caviar Manicure, however the price was a little steep. Check out this DIY I found to give you the same effect for much less!

Champagne wishes and caviar dreams? Now the luxe lifestyle immortalized by Robin Leach comes to your nails, in the form of a caviar manicure. This novel roe-reminiscent texture is the talk of the town, and it looks ultra-opulent! Unfortunately the extravagant finish comes with an equally steep price tag, so we went in search of some low-cost alternatives. Lo and behold, we discovered a way to recreate the baubled effect without denting your wallet.

YOU’LL NEED:
  • Base coat
  • Opaque nail polish (no shimmer)
  • Clear micro beads (available at most craft stores—we snagged our jar for three dollars!)
  • Top coat

STEP 1

THE BASICS

First, apply a clear base coat on completely bare nails. Next, apply one coat of no-shimmer white polish (a thinner formula is best) onto your nails and let them dry. We chose white, but you can use any color with the clear beads.

STEP 2

COAT AND CAVIAR

Apply a generous second coat of color to one hand, and let the polish get tacky for 10 seconds. Then, over a sheet of paper, a cup, or a plastic tray, pour the microbeads over your nail bed, ensuring you coat the entire surface of your nail bed like glitter over glue.

STEP 3

IM-PRESSED

When each nail is entirely covered, use the pad of your finger to press and secure the caviar beads. Repeat this on your other hand.

STEP 4

THE LEFTOVERS

Pour the excess beads back into the jar to save for later, then apply a tiny drop of top coat along your nail tip to seal the caviar. The look should last two or three days before the beads start to fall. Black-tie nails at a bargain price—you can’t beat it!

SNAGGED: The Perfect Braid Crown

Had to Snag this cute tutorial on the Perfect Braid Crown!! Check it out!

Lessons From The Pros:The Perfect Braid Crown

We’re always secretly jealous of cute braiding styles we see on blogs and out in the street, but always end up opting for the five-second bun or ponytail instead. That is, until our hairstylist showed us how easy it is to re-create this awesome braid that will crown you babe for the day. Here’s how to master your favorite new braid in five simple steps.

1. First things first, split your hair down the middle. Don’t worry about making a perfectly straight line, just get as close as you can.

2. Starting at the nape of the neck, braid your hair forward toward your forehead. Fasten with a small elastic band. Repeat on the other side. When you’re finished with this step, you should have have pretty awkward front braids (see below).

 

3. Wrap your braids to see how it will look, then decide which one you want to be on the bottom.

4. Cross that one over your head like a headband and pin into place with a few bobby pins. Repeat on the other side, crossing it over the first braid.

5. Pull a few pieces of hair out around your face to make it look more messy and modern.

 

6. Toss on a ’90s floral dress, sheer blouse or rocker tee to add a little edge to your sweet new ‘do.

SNAGGED: DIY SCARF PRINT SHORTS

Following my favorite scarf print trend, I saw this DIY on a pair & a spare. Check it out!! Make sure you stop by her cool blog too!


With Coachella and a whole number of other summer festivals on the horizon,  your thoughts are probably turning to festival outfit planning, and how you can get your ‘pocahontas goes to burning man' look down pat.   I've been lusting for a pair of scarf print shorts for agessss (remember this post?) and have decided that they are to be my uniform for this year’s festivals. I’ve been seeing them everywhere in stores actually, but what’s better than when they’re quick and cheap to make yourself?  I mean, surely we don’t want to be wearing our nice, expensive digs when we sit in mud (guaranteed to happen) or have sweaty men rub up against us in the crowds (if we’re lucky). These simple scarf print shorts are perfect festival get up. So get amongst it!

You need:
- A cotton or silk style scarf - mine was a big one from H&M
- Elastic to fit around your waist
- A pen
- Scissors
- Thread
- A ruler
- Sewing pins
- Craft paper
- a pair of shorts to trace the pattern.

I recommend using a sewing machine for this project but if you are really super keen you could probably do it by hand also. Don’t have a machine? Beg, borrow or steal - this project is worth it! Also - if you have a selvedger you should use that to finish the edges, but I don’t and was happy with a rough look. They’re for jumping up and down at festivals right?

scarf

1. First make the pattern by folding your shorts in half (front pockets on the outside) and then tracing them onto the craft paper. Look at you making patterns and stuff! So fancy!

scarf2

2. Your pattern should look like this. Now add 2 cm (approx 1 in) to the bottom and sides of the pattern, and 4 cm (approx 1.5in) to the top (ie waistband) of the pattern.

scarfshorts 3
3. Cut your pattern out. 
 scarfshorts 5

4. Fold your fabric in half, keeping in mind where you want your scarf pattern to sit. I would have liked to line the pattern up at the front with two right angles of pattern on each side of the shorts but I had first time jitters and went with the patterned hem instead.

 5. Pin the long straight edge of the pattern along the fold.

6. Cut out the fabric along the pattern.

7. Now cut out another piece of fabric using the pattern so you have two identical pieces.

scarfshorts 10

 8. Pin the two pieces together right sides facing each other.

scarfshorts 11


9. Sew the fabric with a straight stitch along the two curved edges - following the pin line shown below. You want to be quite careful how you sew these pieces together because you want your pattern to match up perfectly. Note that this seam will be the front seam of your shorts and the most important place for the pattern to match up.

scarfshorts 12

10. Fold the shorts in together so the two sewn seams are facing each other. Then sew around the crotch where you can see the pins in the picture below. 

scarfshorts 14


11. Make the elasticated waistband by pinning the waistband down a few cm, sewing with a straight stitch and then threading with elastic. I squeeze my elastic onto a knitting needle to make it easier. Then sew the elastic  ends together and then sew the waistband shut.

waistband
12. Finally, finish all the raw edges with a zigzag stitch to reduce fraying and stop the shorts from splitting. 

And there you have it! Possibly the easiest sewing project to do in the world - I actually first learnt it in Hom Ec in year 8. Once you have the process down pat go crazy experimenting with colours, textures and embellishments. If you want your shorts to be more full than mine ie with more fabric in them, make the pattern wider in the waistband by but keep the length the same.

Have fun!

SNAGGED: DIY Ombre Denim!

For those who really like the ombre look… here is a fun and cute ombre look I found at Style Scrapbook… check it out!







I FINALLY got around to do this DIY but since I didn’t want to ruin one of my favorite denim shirts, I went and bought a cheap one at a small store and luckily, the operation was successful!. …This DIY is as simple as they come so if you are feeling adventurous, here is what you need and the step by step:

YOU NEED

*Special fabric bleach in powder (if you can’t find it, use normal bleach)
*Gold buttons (make sure they are the same size as the buttons you are replacing)


HOW TO

1. Remove all the old buttons from the shirt (thats if you decide to change the buttons like I did)

2. If you are using the special fabric bleach, follow the instructions on the package to get the color off the sleeves. I had to heat up the water and pour the powder into the hot water.

3. If you are using normal bleach, pour the bleach (Carefully, otherwise you will stain your clothes) on a small tub with a little bit of water (enough to cover the part you want to bleach).

4. Make the sleeves wet BEFORE you get them in the pot or tub.

5. Once you have your sleeves wet and on the water with the beach, leave it there and move it occasionally so that the color disappears evenly.

6. See the color disappear and get it out of the water when you are happy with the shade. (you can leave it until its very light or maybe a lighter shade of blue).

7. Rinse it and dry it (I washed it again with fabric softener to get the bleach smell off it)

8. If you decide to change the buttons as I did, stitch them once its dry.

WHY DONT YOU TRY IT AT HOME? ;)

SNAGGED: DIY Metal Belt

I saw this really cute DIY Metal Belt tutorial on A Pair and a Spare and had to snag it for you all. Check it out… and stop by her site too!

DIY METAL BELT

Metal belts have been on my mind  and at the absolute top of my DIY list for a long time. I finally found the material I needed to make my own version when I was back in Australia on holidays - aluminium flashing which is sheet metal used in roofs, found at the hardware store. Read on for an incredibly simple (and cheap!) tutorial.

DSC_0399
DSC_0402

You need:
- Approx 1 metre of 0.03mm thick Aluminium Flashing - used in roofing and available in most hardware stores. It cost me around AUD$2.50 for the metre.
- Scissors
- Hammer
- Towel
- Rope, leather or wire to secure at the back

tutorial
tutorial2

How to:
1. Using scissors cut a strip of flashing to size - I cut mine about 7cm wide and 75cm long to suit my waist with a little extra at the ends.
2. To effectively ‘hem’ the edge of the metal (so that you don’t cut yourself while wearing it), place your flashing on a table with about 1cm along the length of it hanging over the side of the table. Using your fingers, push the metal down so it is flush with the corner of the table. Turn the metal over and push it down all the way down along the edge. Repeat this on the other long edge of the belt.
5. To finish the edges, cover with a towel and hammer lightly with the hammer along the edge so it is nice and flat. You can also place the belt between two phone books and hammer the edges to make sure it is finished well.
6. Carefully bend the belt around your waist or something round like a bucket, making sure not to fold it - the less it folds or bends the better the belt will look.
7. Roll the two ends of the belt over so that you have two tubes at the ends. I rolled the ends around a pencil to make it easier.
8. Finally, thread the tubes with ribbon, leather or rope and tie in a bow or tuck into the tubes at the back to secure the belt. I used some plastic covered fencing wire but you can use whatever you want.
Here’s the finished product. Given how cheap aluminium flashing is you can make a few different versions - thick, thin, hammered, smooth etc.

SNAGGED: 5 Questions with an Acting Coach

For my fellow dazzling stars… Snagged from Black Actors:

Marishka Phillips has worked with Why Did I Get Married actress Tasha Smith, and other notables. Currently, Phillips teaches acting workshops in both New York and Los Angeles at the Marishka Phillips Theatrical Preparatory.

The 5 Questions

BA: How does one become an actor?

MP: I cannot teach one to act, however I can get you to your truth that you must give yourself full permission to expose that truth and lift it into your character. It is my belief that every person that has the passion to be an actor, has an innate gift that they bring to the craft. It is my job as an acting coach to help them define and refine that gift. You Must be Willing.

BA: What tips can you give to an actor trying to land their first role?

MP: When you walk into that audition room half the battle is confidence. That means you have to do The Work on your character development and your script! Once you do the work and Full of your stuff (organic truth) then you get out there and do the play! Not to be mistaken with cockiness. They want to be sure they want to work with you.

BA: How does an actor know which roles to accept and which ones to skip?

MP: Once you define yourself as an actor/ artist you will be absolutely clear on which roles are right for you! Film is Forever!

BA: How does a new actor get an agent?

MP: Getting an agent is grind time. Get great pictures and send them out. Knock on doors if you have to. always have business cards or something that is a great representation of you and the characters you want to play. Or ask your actor friends about their agents. Some actors are generous. There are also worthy seminars.

BA: What can actors learn from you?

MP: If actors chose to work with me, I can teach them to take risks as the actor, leave a memorable impression in the audition room, Clarity, vulnerability, and truth. It’s hard work. It takes 10,000 hours to master a craft

SNAGGED: How to Prevent Your Matte Lipsticks from Drying

As you all know, this was a must snag from Fashion Bomb Daily. I am a huge fan of MAC’s Ruby Woo, so I know the feeling. Check this article out for great tips of keeping those matted lips moisturized!!

Fashion Bomb reader Allie wrote in asking, “How do I keep matted lipstick from looking dry, flaky, and cakey? After A while of having it on, I may or may not reapply and by the end of my night, the lipsticks looks crazy. What steps do I need to do before applying matted lipsticks and what to do if I want to reapply?? HELP!!!

Hey Allie!

Thus is the plight of the girl who loves her matte lipsticks! Not all mattes are created equally though. While MAC Ruby Woo can feel like it could cut glass (though the more you use the tube, the easier it gets to apply), there are brands who have matte lipsticks that are so soft and easy to apply, they make you double check the label to make sure you’re getting a real matte. Some that come to mind include tarte LipSurgencee Natural Matte Lip Tint, Sleek MakeUP True Colour Lipstick, Stila Long Wear Liquid Lip Color (goes on like gloss but dries matte), Bite High Pigment Matte Pencil, and new Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet.

But if you have a favorite matte that you love but it just doesn’t seem to love you back, here’s what you do:

*Make sure lips are regularly exfoliated. You can simply brush a wet toothbrush over them or get fancy with a lip scrub.

*Stay hydrated while wearing your matte lipstick. Drink several glasses of water as sometimes the lips can get dry and the lipstick can tend to accumulate giving you that “gunky” film on your lips.

*Use a lip primer. The lips can tend to have fine lines and wrinkles and once the lipstick starts to settle into them, you can have quite the drying mess. A lip primer (which can be as simple as Chapstick) will help smooth over the lines and gives the lipstick another layer to adhere to.

*When it’s time to reapply, it’s best to take everything off and start all over. Matte lipstick dries with wear so adding a fresh application on top of the dry lips can get quite cakey.

*If bleeding of color is also an issue, line your lips with a pencil similar in color to your lipstick to help it stay put.

SNAGGED: DIY Sunglass Display

I saw this post on Cupcakes and Cashmere and wanted to snag this for you all. Great way to hang your sunglasses!

I have quite a few sunglasses, but I can never keep track of them since they’re always strewn about in random spots throughout my place. Yesterday I created a more streamlined solution, while still adhering to the minimalist vibe of my bedroom. I used an extra frame from a recent project (that’s painted the same color as my wall) and used it to corral all of my eyewear. It took only a few minutes to complete, and the entire project cost $15 (vintage frame $7, paint $4, hooks $1.50, wire $2.50). Here’s how I did it:



{Figure out the general layout – I liked four frames per wire}

{Tools: steel wire, screw eyes, tape measure, ice pick, scissors, pencil}

{Measure where to make the first hole and mark with the pencil}

{Use the ice pick to create a small hole}

{Twist the screw eye into the hole until it’s in place}



{Secure the wire by twisting around the screw eye}



{Pull the wire so that it’s very taut and secure on the other end}

SNAGGED: DIY Neon Yellow Collar Necklace

Saw this post on A Pair and a Spare and had to snag it for you guys… enjoy!!


You’ll need:
A beaded collar necklace
Neon Spraypaint - look for a brand that is non-toxic when dry like Krylon (you’ll also need white if the necklace is a dark colour like mine was)

How to:1. Lay the necklace out on a piece of plastic or paper in a well ventilated area.2. The trick with spraypaint is to do multiple thin coats rather than one thick coat as this gives a much more uniform finish. To do this I sprayed one side of the necklace quite a few times over the course of a day, then once it was completely dry I flipped it over and did the other side.3. Spray the necklace with a base coat of white if the collar necklace is a dark colour, as you want the neon to pop. 4. Finally, spray the necklace with a few coats of the neon. I sprayed a number of coats so it was really thick so that the beads don’t wobble around, and flipped over once the final coat was dry to do the other side.
You can also hang it up to do the spraying but because mine was a rounded collar shape it needed to be flat like this to work properly. And voila! Although it’s quite a summery style, I think you can easily integrate it into your winter wardrobe too!

SNAGGED: How to Lighten Dark Lips

This article is snagged from my fav Fashion Bomb Daily. I thought it was an interesting take on lightening dark lips. In my personal opinion, I believe sometimes dark lips come with the territory of if the person is beautifully brown or dark-brown complexioned… but if your lips are naturally lighter and darkened due to prolong cigarette smoke, then this is an article you should check out.

Sydney writes in asking, “Hey guys! I’ve seen posts about what to do if you have dark elbows but I was wondering if you had any tricks up your sleeve for dark lips? I’m not sure if I was just born with darker lips or if they come from my smoker past but I really want nice pink lips! HELP! Thanks!

Hey Sydney!

I’m glad to hear that smoking is in your past because not only can it lead to cancers, it can also age the skin terribly. It could be a combo of both (were your lips dark before you started smoking?), but having darker or two-toned lips can be pretty common with brown skin.

Your first defense would be to prevent further darkening by making sure you exfoliate your lips (rubbing a wet toothbrush over them or use a gentle scrub) and be sure to use a balm that contains SPF. You can also use a natural lightener like fresh lemons to help brighten the color of your lips over time.

Since you won’t get your lips as pink as I suspect you want them, I say make friends with bold lip color. You can also use concealer (like Black Opal Lip Corrector) or a nude lip pencil to get the base color you want if you wish to rock lighter lip colors.

SNAGGED: Hair How-to

I saw this post on a blog I frequent called Sea of Shoes. I’m a huge fan of the braided headband, so this is a great little tutorial that I had to snag for my readers! Check it out, and when you get a chance make sure you visit Sea of Shoes! If you try the look, send your pictures to Info@JaviciaLeslie.com 

HAIR HOW-TO

I am sometimes asked how I style my hair, and while my method is far from perfect, I thought I’d show you how!  My hair is pretty straight and fine naturally and I always let it air dry. Since I go about three days between washes, I like to curl it on the first day and let it mellow out into some nice waves over the next two. 

Let’s get started!

If your hair doesn’t hold curl very well then you may want to put a palmful of curling mousse in it when it is halfway dry. First I comb out all of the tangles and apply a liberal amount  CHI Iron Guard Protection Spray to prep my hair. Then I stick the top part up in a clippy so I can curl the bottom strands first. To curl my hair I use a Bed Head 1-inch styling iron (though I want to upgrade to one of the fancy new ones from Sultra soon!) When I curl the bottom half of my hair, I take 2” sections and alternate the direction in which I curl them (do one section wrapping it away from the face, and the next one towards the face). I just wrap the hair around the curling rod, I do not use the clamp! You should let the curl slide off the heating rod, and cool completely in your hand before you let it fall.

When I’m done curling the bottom section, I mist it with Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode  and comb through the curl with my fingers. Then I move on to the top section. On the top part, I curl all of the hair away from my face to get that flowy beachy look. I leave about an inch of the bottom section off the curling rod to keep from totally singing the ends, and it makes it look a bit more natural and lived in.

Ahh!! Huge hair! Well, with my fine hair, the curl usually calms down a lot after about an hour. I just run my fingers through it and go with it. 

If you want to dress it up a little, you can do a braided headband look! Take a small section of hair below your ear and braid it, but not too tight so that it stays long enough to wrap around your head.

Find a spot on the opposite side of your head and pin it so that it blends in naturally with the rest of your hairstyle. 

Well, that’s it! Not too hard. Hope this answers any questions.

SNAGGED: The Power of Contouring

As I’ve told you all before, I am far from a make-up guru. However, when I find a look I like, I master it. Everytime I watch celebrities get their make-up done, or stop pass a make-up counter, I hear the word ‘contouring’ and the wonders it can do for your face. When I came across this post at my fav’s The Fashion Bomb Daily, I knew I had to snag this for you all. Check out what Danielle writes:

This gorgeous picture of Trina, shot by celebrity photographer Michael-Antonio as part of a series on female rappers, is proof that you can have a beat face while using very little products and not even much color. All with some contouring.

The main idea behind contouring is to use darker shades to recede certain areas of the face and lighter ones to highlight others. When using contours and highlights, the general notion is to transform the face into the “ideal” shapes—almond for the eyes and oval for the face. The reason these are considered ideal is based on their symmetry. So basically if you have a rounder face, you’ll use contours on the more round areas and highlights to bring out high points like the cheekbones and bridge of the nose.

To get a contour look, gather the following:
* A stick foundation or concealer that matches your skin tone
* A stick foundation, matte blush, concealer, etc. that is 2-3 shades darker than your skin tone
* A stick foundation, matte blush, concealer, etc. that is 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone
* A shimmery eyeshadow that’s about the same shade as your skin tone
* A very light shimmery eyeshadow that’s 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone
* A matte eyeshadow about 2-3 shades darker than your skin tone
* A dark eyeliner
* Peach blush
* Nude lip color

How to do it…

Eyes:
Use the lighter foundation stick or concealer under the brow bone to create a more natural looking brow highlight. Be sure to blend with a concealer brush or the edge of a makeup wedge so there are no harsh lines. Apply the darker contour shade in the crease using a fluffy eyeshadow brush and a back and forth sweeping motion—almost like a windshield wiper. Dot the lighter shimmery eyeshadow in the corners of the eyes and if you wish under the bottom lash line using a pencil brush like MAC 219. Then apply the shimmery eyeshadow close to your skin tone on the bottom portion of the lid and gently blend being careful not to leave harsh lines but also not “muddying” the area where two colors meet. Line the eyes and apply mascara.

Cheeks:
Using the lighter foundation stick or concealer apply along the tops of the cheekbones. Make a “fish face” to find the hollows of your cheeks and using a fluffy angled brush apply the darker shade. Apply a peach blush (looks great on all shades of brown) to the apples of the cheeks and then carefully blend so there are no harsh lines but again being careful not to “muddy” the area where two colors meet.

Face:
Decide which areas of your face need to recede (normally the perimeter of the face and jaw line) and take a large fluffy blush and dust the darker makeup shade along this area.

The most important part of this? Practice, practice, practice. On a lazy Saturday afternoon, look yourself in a well-lit bathroom and get to it. Check out your using natural daylight or by snapping a few pics.
