These lipsticks have been sitting in my apartment for way to long.
I was super excited about them and bought them in the thought that they had to be great. I have watched Safiya for years, and to be honest, have seen every single of her videos. She had such a high standard for what her lipstick should be able to tolerate (and she made “butthole coverage” famous- essentially stressing the importance of having a lipstick that actually stayed on, even on the “wetter” part of the lips). So of course, I had to have these.
The thought that these are inspired by the franken-lipsticks she has made in bad makeup science experiments I think is super cool and I have been looking forward to it.
The “hardship” of having to go from either work or school straight to a party or event, can be really hard as the makeup that is usually worn to work and school is either minimal or really dressed down.
That is why we will be doing an easy day to night makeup look today. So you will know what to do when in a pinch or don’t have enough time to really do anything before the event.
I usually do not really wear much makeup, which means I do not feel like I need that much for going to a party (if I actually went to parties that is). I do not really wear much in the daytime either, which means this look might be a bit too subtle for some tastes. (But if you would like to see a more packed on look, I can make it – just say so)
Something we do not do enough, but I love is DIY’s and creative tasks.
I made these butterflies quite a while ago but never got to show you how to make them (even though I filmed it). So today I am doing just that, and we will have fun with it 😊
The butterflies can be used as decorations for almost anything; I saw some great pictures of paper butterflies hanging on a stick, but I used them as decorations for Christmas kind of as “cards” where one colour of butterfly was for one person.
I also have some of them on a piece of string to hang as decoration – though I do not have enough space to actually hang it anywhere (they ended up on my closet)
