Horizontal : Outside edge of tape every 5.3 inches
Vertical: Outside edge of tape every 5 inches
2. Pucker up and smooch! For the first two vertical rows, kiss closer to the right than the centre to keep things...centred!
(because everything before the outer edge of tape is still part of your square)
3. Remove tape and, if desired, write names of each lipstick shade
Make sure to use a fine tipped Sharpie that won't bleed on canvas
4. Spray with a couple coats of acrylic sealant or, in a pinch, hairspray
I've seen a few things like this on Pinterest that have been done for a bachelorette party, but I instantly thought it would be a perfect way to catalogue some of my favourite lipsticks and add a little decor to one of my rooms. Before marking up your canvas, make sure you do a couple practice rounds on paper to get your lip print just right. If you make a few mistakes (like I did) , just chalk it up to the fact that "it's art" !
3 c Kale, chiffonade cut // .5 c Parmesan , grated
.25 c fresh squeezed lemon juice // .5 c pumpkin seeds, toasted
.25 c olive oil // pinch of brown sugar or sweetener of choice (eg honey, maple syrup)
In a small dish mix together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and sweetener.
In a large bowl toss kale, pumpkins seeds, and cheese.
Pour dressing over salad (you may not need to use all of it)
Prepare this salad ahead of time and let sit in the fridge a few hours.
I've posted a variation of this before (maybe it's even identical!) but this is my tried and true version that I make almost weekly. Recipe can be made clean or vegan-friendly by omitting parmesan and sweetener.
What I liked: This mascara stayed put really well and didn't flake or smudge throughout the day. It also gave great natural-looking, flirty definition and made lashes nice and dark.
What I didn't like: The brush is super tiny, which I find often lends itself to clumpy-ness. It's definitely difficult to get to all of the little lower and inner corner lashes with the short, conical brush.
Verdict: I only tried the regular side of this duo, so basically it was a $0.50 product ($1.00 for the whole tube), so it was to be expected that it would be a little uninspiring.The mascara duo is great for a day when you just want to throw on a coat on mascara and not much else but is not something I'd use for a night out! This is the first elf mascara I've tried, and I intentionally chose the most basic to begin with; I'd definitely try out one that claims to do a little more to see how it compares. No real rants or raves but I wouldn't use this particular mascara on the reg.
