So this weekend I decided to try my first tester at dip dyeing fabric. I bought some Jacquard Procion MX dyes and soda ash, so I was all set.
I chose a pair of super old Forever21 jeans that I think I bought for like $12 back in 2010. I never wear them because they look awful. I cut the jeans conservatively short so that later I could cut and fray appropriately. I stuck them in a tub of bleach for two hours and then rinsed them.
After rinsing them, I soaked them in the soda ash solution for 20 minutes. Somehow, after they soaked in the soda ash, a brown mark appeared. I’m fraying that area but I will have to figure out why that happened. 🙁 Wah. So then, I mixed the dye and water. I dipped most of the jean into the mixture and let it sit for ten minutes before dragging it up slowly and stirring the dye. I repeated this until I had dyed most of the jean.
More soon <3
Hello hello! I have a new video up on how to achaive voluminous curls for any hair type. This doesn’t take a lot of prep and you can do it without having to worry about damaging your hair! This is probably one of my favorite ways to do my hair now because I love the feeling of having curlers in while I paint my nails or do my makeup.
I hope you enjoy!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love dressing up and coming up with new ways to do old costumes. But, Halloween is also super expensive. Every year I budget myself no more than $50 to come up with a costume, hair, and makeup. I know some people even think that $50 is too steep for one or two nights.
You don’t have to break the bank to have the coolest costume at a party! I often buy or use clothes and accessories that I’d wear for every day to accentuate my costumes.
Here are some easy looks:
Just cover half of your face in white paint, using a brush or sponge. I used a white face crayon to create an even line between both sides of my face.
I bought some super cute circle lenses and I decided to do a review!
These are the Geo Nudy series in Golden Blue.
I love them so much! I don’t wear contacts because I have really good vision, except for at night from far away. But, it’s not so horrible that I need to wear anything to enhance my vision. Circle lenses for me are entirely cosmetic.
Even in low light, these are noticeable. For super blue eyes, they look best in day light.
