We intend this hop to serve as a resource to you for this holiday season and for years to come. I am so excited to be part of day #3 of this fantastic hop! I will be sharing a Room Decor DIY for all you teens and its okay if you make it and your older. It's a really fun craft. First pull out your Fantastic Big Shot. I love mine and they have the best dies as well! Today I am using this Flower and Leaf die. I ran the die 3 times with 3 colors, two shades of red, and green. I took the top part of the flower in green, which would of got threw away and embossed it with White powder! After you piece it together, it should look something like this. Now you will want to take a simple piece of cork, any size you feel will work is fine. I believe mine is 12x12. I like this size! I'm also working with Shape Tape by FrogTape! It is new and I love it. I actually used it in another project over on A Little Craft In Your Day. The shape tape comes in all different patterns, but I am using the chevron pattern. I placed two lines of the Shape Tape onto the cork and then placed a regular piece of Painters tape at the top. I really didn't want to do the whole Cork a chevron pattern. I then applied a nice christmas red color of paint with a foam brush- it worked great! You are DONE! How easy was that? I know I enjoyed making it, I hope you enjoyed reading. If you try it let me know- Tweet me or tag me on Instagram, @Tannerbell1023! I can't wait to see. Are you ready for a GIVEAWAY??

The singer has teamed up with H&M to produce a visual for new single ‘Too Young to Remember’, which will be out in the UK on March 8.
Wear it dry, and you’ve got your standard dusting of color—classic and predictable (in a good way). But wet! Wearing it wet opens a whole new world of opportunity. “What you’re doing is bringing out the pigmented nature of the shadow,” makeup artist Vincent Oquendo says. “Whenever I wet an eye shadow, it’s when I really want it to pop—but it really has to be a special kind of product to be able to blend after it sets. Because a lot of the times when it sets, you get streaking.” Nobody wants that. In order to avoid any wet shadow mishaps, follow these guidelines:
First, go with the obvious: any eye shadow labeled wet-to-dry. The Nars Dual-Intensity line is the standout—the singles come in 12 different shimmery shades, and there’s a corresponding brush (then there’s the newly released Dual Intensity Blush line, which was all over Fashion Week—but that’s a product for another post). Burberry also makes a few very versatile shades specifically for this in their Wet & Dry Silk Shadows. And the technique-specific eye shadow category isn’t just a ploy to get you to buy more product. “You can’t just use any eye shadow for this,” Vincent says. “Certain ones will harden up on top and become unusable because they’re not made for this.”
Baked shadows are also fair game—we’re fans of Laura Mercier’s Baked Eye Colour Wet/Dry and Lorac’s Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in particular.
For more advanced players, Vincent suggests moving on to straight pigment (MAC or even OCC’s Pure Cosmetic Pigments). With the added moisture, they’ll become easier to layer with other products. For a look with more depth, try using a cream shadow as a based before swiping with a wet powder shadow. “It’s like insurance,” Vincent says. “You’re doubling your wearability.”
This all depends on exactly what you want to do. “Mind the resistance,” Vincent says, particularly if you’re looking for uniform color across the lid. “I tend to recommend a blender brush, which is the brush that looks like a feather duster. If you do it with a stiff brush, you’re defeating yourself before you even start. The joy of a wet-to-dry is you have to get it right amount of product loaded up, and then it blends itself. If the brush is too stiff, it will leave the shadow streaky and then much harder to control.”
However, if tightlining or waterlining is in the cards, a much thinner brush is required accordingly.
Do not, repeat, do not put eye drops, water, or any other sort of liquid directly on your eye shadow. This’ll screw up your product for later use. “Lately, I’ve been wetting the brush with the Glossier Soothing Face Mist, but Evian Mineral Water Spray is good for sensitive eyes,” Vincent says. If the top of your powder does get a little hardened by wet application, there’s a trick to remove it: Get a clean mascara spoolie and “exfoliate” your compact, Vincent recommends. This won’t crack the compact and will make it ready to go once more.
