New Year’s Eyes

Heyyyy guys!

So I wanted to make this gif tutorial. I’m just testing how does it work and I also want to know what you guys think! The quality is really bad, I know… And there are obviously watermarks from the video edit program I used, but it’s because I didn’t want to spend money on something I wasn’t sure would work, but I’m feeling really positive about this and I think it’s a cool way to write a blog. If this works and you guys like it I will continue posting gifs (and make the quality better), not just makeup tutorials, but all kind of stuff!

Enough talking, lets hop on to the tutorial!

I like watching other people’s makeup tutorials, especially when they are about holidays and other special events, but I often feel like very few would actually have the courage to go out wearing the makeup look. So that is why I like to do really subtle looks  that are easy to create and suit everybody!

Start by tapping on white eye shadow to the whole eyelid and to the brow bone as well. (Ah, I hope the gifs work!!)

Then direct a light eye shadow colour of your choice right to the upper outer corner of your eye in a window wiper motion. Create a soft cat eye like in the gif above. I used the shade “Liar” (shimmery baby pink) from the Naked 3 palette, as usual.

Do the same thing again but with a dark brown or black eye shadow. Don’t blend the colour as much as in the previous step.

After that lightly tap on any kind of loose glitter eye shadow.

I used the one from Gosh, it’s a mixture of gold and silver glitter.

I love lining my eyes and I think lined cat eyes go with every look. I lined my eyes the same way I did in the Autumn Eye Makeup I post, you can go check it out if you’re interested!

And of course the last thing is to curl (optional) your lashes and put on some mascara. If you want to make your eyes stand out even more glue on some fake eyelashes!

Let me know what you think about the gifs in the comments below!

DIY snowflake ornament

so I was at the store one day and I saw really expensive Christmas ornaments and they were not even that fancy. It was ridiculous… I was like “I could easily do that” and here we are now!

Step 1
Get inspiration from the internet. It’s a snowflake, how hard can it be, right? Sketch some snowflakes on paper and do few different variations. The drawings are used as a mold.

 Step 2

Now put the paper in a plastic pocket or cover the paper with clear contact paper like i did.

Step 3

Use white glue or glitter glue to make the snowflakes. I find the white glue easier to shape but if you make large snowflakes then I recommend using glitter glue. When you are done pour glitter on the glue and shake the excess glitter off and back to where you poured the glitter. Then let it dry for the night.

Step 4

When the snowflake has dried remove it carefully  and there you go! You can put it in a Christmas tree, decorate your Christmas presents or what ever you like!

Love, Pinja

WARNING:
The snowflake will make your hands glittery when you touch it so do not touch your face before washing the glitter off your hands. Speaking from experience…
