Reversed Heel Shoe

dezeen_Scary-Beautiful-by-Leanie-van-de-Vyver_1

OK – some shoes are absolutely gorgeous, others are pretty mediocre but then… Then there are scary shoes.

These extravagant shoes have been created by artist Leanie van der Vyver in collaboration with Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg.

The shoes are unique because they have a reversed hell which looks pretty weird to say the least.

No one claims the shoes are practical in any way – but they are intriguing and extravagant. Granted they do look a bit scary – but in a sort of a beautiful way.

We all remember Alexander McQueen’s “Armadillo” heels worn by Lady Gaga in the “Bad Romance” video… Do you think she’d give these ones a spin? Or are they a bit too much even for someone like Gaga?

Check out the colors on that cake! It’s a super easy way to make a fun cake. Make the biscuit layer like you would for a cheese cake and separate six bowls with white cake mix. Get a few different colors of gel coloring and mix well, using a separate spoon for each bowl. Pour the colors in one after the other and you’re bound to get that delicious multicolored cake!

Best Way To Apply Concealer

If you hate the dark circles under your eyes, as they give the tired look and…older. For that reason I think that the concealer is a wonderful invention. Many girls do not know how to use it properly though – I noticed most of them are applying three  or four little dots under the eye lid, which they later mix together. It is good, but sometimes the substance itself gets into the little wrinkles and it seems ugly. I prefer the triangle way of applying, which allows better and smoother coverage. You can try this tomorrow morning and you will certainly not regret it.

Beauty makes up dependent on certain products such as the concealer and the foundations. We know that we should use only quality cosmetics, but remember that even the greatest quality one will not enable you with best results if you do not apply it properly.

It is very important to take into account your face`s shape, when tweezing or threading your eyebrows. However sometimes this is not enough and you may feel the colour needs to be changed too, in order to suit your whole outfit. In this case continue reading and learn how to bleach your eyebrows.

Clean and groom your eyebrows, before starting the actual bleaching. Then apply some vaseline around the eyebrows, to protect the skin

Buy a bleach suitable for eyebrows and follow the directions on how to blend all the products included. Comb your clean brows. Then use a spoolie to apply the bleach evenly. Make sure the hairs are coated on all angles. When they are covered leave them for a few minutes – how many depends on the bleach and your own preferences. Most of the time 10 minutes approximately is fine if you want to change the colour.

Carefully remove the bleach from your eyebrows. Let them dry and apply purple shampoo, using a Q-tip. Allows the shampoo 10minutes and clean it. Now your brows should have a more natural look.

As you can see there is a difference between picture 1 and picture 8, but it still looks good.

The newspaper effect on nails is quite popular, as it is unusual, but very nice. Thankfully, it is not difficult to do it – all you need is nail polish (not very dark shade), newspaper and warm water.

Paint your nails and let the nail polish dry. Then cut a few newspaper strips and dunk your finger into the warm water. Wrap the wet nail with a piece of newspaper and make it extra wet if necessary. Use a napkin to press the paper onto the nail and stay like that for about 5 minutes. Carefully remove the newspaper and you will see the letters on your nails. Add a top coat and you are done.

We think this nail design is quite interesting and enjoyable to do, so definitely take your time to try it. At least, when you are bored, you can always read “the nails’.

 

 

Dotted Nail Design

All you need is black, white and grey nail polish and dotting tool(or a very thin brush). As you can see it is not difficult at all. Paint your index finger in black, your middle finger in gray and your ring finger in white. Of course any other variations will be great too.

Use the dotting tool to draw the dots. White nail goes with black dots, grey and black nail go with white dots. Start drawing the dots from the top to the bottom and the lower you go, the less the dots should be.

Personally, I am ready to stop with Step 2 on the picture as it looks great, so it depends on you whether the whole nail will be dotted or not. In every case this nail design is stylish and looks great, so you will not regret doing it. what is more – it is super easy.

Don`t forget the top coat when you are done with the design itself.
