Feeling Crafty | Insanely Awesome DIYS

So we have been feeling pretty crafty within the last week. Perhaps it’s because its almost Spring. The creative juices have been flowing through us and we have taken to scrolling through arts and DIY (Do it Yourself) blogs for inspiration on how we can turn our homes and lives into a paradise using only beeswax, mason jars, clothes hangers and essential oils ( and we take our hats off to all of the immensely talented people on Pinterest).

What’s great about sitting down and creating something, whether it’s for yourself, for a friend, or for your home, is that it is not only fun and therapeutic, it’s also incredibly eco-friendly and thrifty. Why spend x number of dollars on a luxury candle or art-piece when you can create your own? Often our houses are treasure troves for craft materials. Elastic bands, paper clips, old clothes, old-makeup containers, and chipped mugs can be transformed into fully-functional masterpieces with ease. Out of the DIYs we have found this week, here are a few of our favorites.

1. Hand-made Perfume

Favorite Spring/Summer 2014 Beauty Tips

As we are entering Spring and visions of floaty sundresses, cardigans, and sandals float through our heads, stores will soon be filled with the spring/summer collections that we saw for the first time last fall. As we get ready to revamp our wardrobes in preparation, we have selected our five favorite make-up looks inspired by the Spring/Summer 2014 runways. From berry-stained lips to winged eyeliner a’la Twiggy, the overall look for the season is natural yet striking, with one feature highlighted, bold against a radiant complexion.

1. Mad for Merlot

emma-watson-purple-berry-lipsberry_lips

There is nothing more elegant than a berry-lip. On days where classic red feels garish and pink feels girlish, berry is always sophisticated and manages to be both sultry and work appropriate. While fair gals may be weary of darker colours, a softer shade of plum is striking without being harsh, and the blue undertones in the shade help to minimize redness in fair skin. Ladies with warm undertones should go for a rich raspberry shade, and darker-skin beauties a deep merlot.

2. Barely There Beauty

NaturligDolce_e_Gab_397647r

The funny thing about makeup is that so often people put it on to look as though they are not wearing any. The no-makeup look is truly an art. The models on the runway for Dolce and Gabbana’s collection were all positively ethereal but looked as if they weren’t wearing a stitch of makeup. The secret? Take care of your skin (eat healthy, drink lots of water, cleanse, moisturize, repeat.) and prep the skin with a primer. Only use concealer where you need it, on blemishes and on under eye circles and use a lighter tinted moisturizer or BB cream instead of foundation and only apply around the center of your face (t-zone area). Not only will it be better for your skin, but it will provide sheerer, more natural looking coverage. Applying any makeup other than a light dusting of blush on your cheeks will leave you looking overly made-up. Next smudge dark brown or black eyeliner right into your lash-line and apply a few strokes of lengthening mascara for a wide-eyed look.

3. Orange is the New Black

Milly Orange lips

If you had suggested to us six months ago that we would actually consider the possibility of painting our lips orange we would have called you crazy. Don’t get us wrong, tangerine lips is one hundred percent a look that you can over-do. To keep yourself looking chic and fearless, instead of tacky and clueless, we recommend only highlighting your lips and keeping the rest of your face subdued and natural. If you feel like playing up your eyes then use a lip tint or gloss that is a little more sheer. Orange is actually a surprisingly wearable shade if done right and brings a lot of warmth to fair skin and pops against darker complexions.

4. Cat-Call

Cat-Eye-Makeup-Trend-Fall-2013

The cat-eye is tricky business, even more so than the smoky eye. That being said, when done right, it’s utter perfection in a 1960s stewardess kind of way. Black liquid eyeliner and a steady hand are what is required for this look. Start from the outside and lightly trace the shape you want to create on both eyes and fill in with liner. Next, move mistakes and make sure it is even with a q-tip dipped in make-up remover. Instantly channel Audrey Hepburn with this sophisticated look.

5. White Noise

eyelinerwhite

It’s a well known beauty trick, used by makeup artists everywhere, to use white eyeliner on the lash-line and rim to leave one looking more awake and refreshed. Take it one step further and dust a pearlescent shadow on your lids for a angelic look, and a refreshing change from the usual smoky eye.

Five Date-Friendly Looks for Valentines Day

As if anyone needs any reminding of this fact, but Valentines Day is just around the corner. It’s not as if this is something we need to tell any of you, after all the overzealous abundance of red, pink, sequins, hearts and stuffed animals sends this message across loud and clear. Whether you are planning on spending the night out with your girlfriends or have something planned with your significant other, we have selected five Valentines Day perfect outfits (without any hearts or clichés).
Outfit1

The little-black-dress is a classic, and for good reason. It’s effortlessly elegant, it goes with everything, it can be dressed up or down like lickity, and it has a way of making your figure look its best. Since our tunic dress has a little bit of embellishment at the neckline, it is best to keep accessories to a minimum. Our silver paisley pendant would look stunning on a 30″ chain, lengthening the body in a flattering way. Our hand-crafted agate ring adds a punchy pop of fuchsia to an otherwise subdued palette of black and silver.

Outfit2

We swear, black and turquoise were made for each other. They are a visual match made in heaven. We love the way that our silver and turquoise pendant pops against our Edwardian-esque black lace dress. The look is elegant while being low-key enough for a more casual dinner or cocktails with the ladies. Pair with sheer tights, our metallic leather belt and our turquoise cocktail ring for a look that is refined yet playful.

Outfit3

We know, we know, the floral print on our ruffled dress absolutely scream romance and Valentines Day. To keep this look from being overtly girly, we’ve added our crochet belt in mahogany, our carved copper hints cuff, and an edgy tiger’s eye ring. It’s undeniably feminine, but with our signature bohemian vibe.

Outfit4

For a more casual evening, our chiffon poncho in rose is an ultra-chic layering piece over a simple tank top. We chose equally feminine accessories in a muted palette. Our intricately carved silver cuff, tear-drop amethyst cluster pendant, and beaded silver earrings add a timeless beauty to this otherwise casual look.

Outfit5

As far as we are concerned, there is no colour combination that is sexier or more glamorous than black and gold. Our shimmery, burn-out printed black and gold tunic is a head-turner all on its own. Throw on our woven metal necklace, threaded gold floral earrings, and black and gold studded bangles (loved by Coco and Vera’s Cee Fardoe) and you will have a look that would make Beyoncé blush.
