Mermaid Makeup

Here's my blue and green mermaid makeup look! I used white and blue face paint from snazaroo and bright green face paint from deserres for painting the scales. I added gold shimmer powder from the body shop all over once the painting was done. To enhance my eyes I painted my eyelids up to my eyebrows in a darker blue, and then painted very light green and light blue scales on top. I also used black eyeliner and fake eyelashes - the bottom eyelashes I added some bright green paint on the very ends.

Candy Cane Cake Pops! DIY

I made these cake pops as a trial before Christmas (going to make fresh ones closer to Christmas) and they turned out great!

I used chocolate cake mix (easier), but then made my own icing for the inside. The icing recipe I got from here: http://www.52kitchenadventures.com/2011/12/05/peppermint-chocolate-cake-pops/ except I added an extra cup of icing sugar, and 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract (I didn't have enough candy canes). I also found that this recipe made way too much icing- so I saved the leftover to make the cake pops again in 1 week.

DIY candy cane hot chocolate gifts

I saw these candy cane hot chocolate gifts being sold for $10.00 at the mall last week and so decided to make them myself as small Christmas gifts for extended family and friends. They're so easy to make- you just layer the hot chocolate, chocolate chips, crushed candy canes, and marshmallows. I couldn't find any triangular shaped bags, so I rolled rectangular ones and glued them into the same shape :)

Sugar Skull face paint

Decided I'd try out one more face paint before Halloween. Here is me painted as a sugar skull! I used the same face paint as before (white snazaroo face paint, and the cheap face paint) as well as liquid black eyeliner. I didn't paint the sugar skull colourful like the typical ones you'd see, but instead added black lace.

Pixelated face paint

Face Painting time!! I love Halloween for this very reason.
Here is me painted pixelated. I also took some pictures in between to show the progression of the pixel painting.
I used white snazaroo face paint (Great quality and easy to work with), and cheap face paint from Walmart (okay quality - not very easy to work with though). I only ended up using one brush= an angled eyeliner brush.

DIY bridal bouquet

We ordered the flowers online (scary) but they arrived alive! When they arrive they are not in water so you have to cut the ends of the stems and let them sit in a flower solution/ water overnight before you're able to start making the bouquets. Used garden roses and carnations.
