DIY: Chandelier

Hey Beauties!

I wanted to share my recent project with you. I have been wanting to do this for a while, and waiting for the products to be shipped, didn't help, either. But, I finally made it! Yey! I am talking about my own "mini" chandelier ;)

Since I do get a bit obsessed with some things, I really wanted to make my own chandelier. Partly, because my three-in-one light is so boring. I wanted to make it a bit nicer. I am planning on renovating my room - but maybe next year. Until then, it's the little things that count :).

The idea came when I found cute heart shaped beads or pendants, what ever you wanna call it, in the shop (Tedi-for Slovenian readers :) ). They had 10 pieces of those hearts for 1€. I seized the opportunity and bought some. That's when I decided to use it as a part of my chandelier.

I also ordered three different shapes of glass beads. First are faceted round beads (8 mm), next are faceted bicone beads (8mm) and some of the smaller faceted round beads (4 mm). I got total of 580 beads - which I did not use all, for 7 €.

I also bought this plastic transparent string on which I tied the beads.

This project cost me around 11€.

The first thing I did, was put the beads on the string. I created a certain patter of longer and shorter strings. I tied them on wire clothes hanger, to keep the pattern in a place. My boyfriend made a wire circle and we taped it together with a regular tape. After that I glued some of black wrapping paper around it. Just to get rid of the wire look.

After that I started to put on strings of beads. I just tied them with a regular knot, three times. Firstly I tied strings on the opposite sides. I also had a certain measure of my wire circle so I knew exactly how far apart should each string be, that it came out evenly. I attached it to my light system - that obviously depends on each light.

And that is my new chandelier on my old and boring ceiling light. I really like it. It's not the most professional one, but I think it looks just fine. And I didn't need to spend a lot of money for it.

What do you think about the chandelier? Do you, or would you own it?

DIY: Decorative, storage, gift tin

Hey Beauties!

Do you like hard candy that comes in a tin? I know I have been loving this particular brand. Since I finishes it, I just thought it would be such a waste to just throw it away. It's nice gold and looks like a nice decorative piece. That's why I "pimped it up" a bit ;)

This is how my tin looked like in the beginning.

I bought spray, which is originally for rims, but can be used on any material. I bought it because I had a photo frame that I wanted to repaint. I also love gold color, so I know I am going to be using it a lot.

I sprayed two coats. Just make sure to let it dry after each coat. It will help the color to stick to the tin a lot more. You also need to spray as the instruction says. A bit away from the tin, otherwise you might get dots of paint on the tin, which will not look pretty and it won't dry nicely, either. 

Then I found little paper decorative roses and stones in my basement. I gave it a go and laid them on a tin in a pattern that I like.

I used a hot glue gun and glued the individual pieces on the tin. 

And that is a very easy and simple DIY on how to transform random cases and tins into a gift, storage or decorative tins. Now I just need to decide for what I'm gonna use it for. I kinda like it to be decorative piece. But I thought of storing everyday jewelry in it.

Plum Seduction

Hey Beauties!

Fall is here. And I know that, because I will have to move and study again in two weeks :( . Bummer... But that means fall makeup, which is probably my favorite season of makeup. Because I love plum, purple, cranberry and brown shades. I decided to make a makeup look consisting of all those shades. Hope you like it ;)

First I filled in my brows. Then, I used a big fluffy brush to apply Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze for the base. This way the eye shadows will pop more and stick to the lid. Then I took a flat eye shadow brush and put dark cranberry red eye shadow on the mobile part of the lid only. I blended that with a clean fluffy brush.

I took a crease brush and put purple color into the crease of the eye. I took purple based dark brown and mixed it with grey dark brown eye shadow and applied it on the outer corner of the eye. I also winged it out in a wing like shape. 

I used a cotton pad with eye make up remover and removed any fallout. 

On the bottom I used smaller flat eye shadow brush and applied the same purple shade as before all over the lower lash line. I put cranberry red only on the center of the lower lash line. Then I put both dark brown shades in the outer edge of the lower lash line. Blend, blend, blend :).

On the inner corner of the eye I put a blend of peach and gold eye shadow. Then I curled my lashes. My favorite step, because it just makes such a difference :).

I applied mascara on both top and bottom lashes. 

Here is the eye makeup. For a more wearable look you can stop here, apply light pink blush and nude lipstick and you're done. But I am just getting started :).

On my lips I applied plum lipstick (Avon Perfect Kiss lipstick in Deep Orchid). For the cheeks I used a mixture of bright red and pink blush. I also put a bit of gold highlighter on the top of my cheeks. I slightly contoured my cheeks with a mixture of bronzer and grey eye shadow. 

I decided to also put on some fake eyelashes :).
