DIY Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer EOS Lip-Balm

Hello everyone, this is another one of my DIY's in my EOS Series! Because only 6 more days of Christmas, and it's the 3nd day of Hanukkah, this cute Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer EOS is so amazing and perfect for the holidays! Let's get started!
What you'll need:
-Red Summer Fruit EOS
-Styrofoam block (There should be this paper substance covering each side with Styrofoam in the middle)
-Hot Glue or Glue Stick
-Craft Knife

Steps:
1. Print out this PDF Outline for the reindeer! Thank you so much Vanessa for the great idea!
2. Cut the Styrofoam block so it is the same size as the printout
3. Glue the reindeer outline printout onto the Styrofoam sheet and smooth it down so there isn't any bubbles
4. Using the craft knife, (PLEASE BE CAREFUL!) cut out the red nose while cutting out a little chunk of the styrofoam with it.
5. Put the eos in the cut-out hole! It should rest perfectly in there, but it might fall out if you didn't cut deep enough into the styrofoam!

DIY Blended EOS!

JSYK: I'M STARTING AN EOS SERIES ON DIY WITH MADI!!! 

Most of my views on this blog is my DIY EOS Lipbalm, so I decided to do another EOS DIY! Maybe you have 2 EOS that you adore, but don't have enough room for in a purse or backpack? Have you ever thought about.... combining the scents/flavors?! I don't have any pictures for this DIY to show you because THIS DIY WAS COMPLETELY MY IDEA (also I didn't have a camera to to take pictures with...)

All you need is:
-2 EOS lipbalms
-A Small Microwavable bowl
-A Microwave
-Butterknife
-Spoon
-Plastic Wrap
-Freezer
-OPTIONAL: A match, lighter, etc.
-OPTIONAL: Vaseline

1. Before anything, twist one of the EOS caps/tops (whateva you wanna call them) and line the plastic wrap in the cap/top so when you pour the lipbalm, it takes the EOS shape!
2. So after you open both EOS spheres, use the knife to slice off the rounded top of the balm
3. Put them in the small bowl together, and put in microwave for as long until they're melte…

DIY Simple, Easy, and Edgy Slashed Leggings

Hey DIY-ers! So it's August (oh my GOD) and school is starting soon. If you aren't going major back to school shopping, but want to keep your cool with the clothes you wear, I have the perfect DIY for you! It's the DIY Slashed Leggings! This look totally revamps your style, and gives it an edgy look. It also looks good with girly dresses and combat boots, so keep that in mind! :)

You only need 2 things!
-Fabric Scissors (these are sharper than plain scissors...)
-A pair of leggings you want to style up and don't mind being cut

For the most common look:
1. Lay your leggings flat on a clean flat surface
2. Use your scissors to cut the outside sides of each leg of the leggings. The smaller the spaces between each slash lets your fabric cinch up a bit giving it a more edgy and sexier look. (See pic #1 for bad job; #2 for good) If you cut the strips REALLY close together leaving a small amount of fabric in between each slash, it will start to sort of curve, and not be as str…

DIY Ombre Nail Art Tool!

Okay girls, we all love painting our nails sometimes, am I correct? Though when we see designs such as polka dots or that amazing ombre effect, its hard to do it with the brush the nail polish comes with! Today I show you a DIY Ombre Nail Art Tool!

This DIY nail art tool is perfect if you want ombre nails, but don't want to spend too much money!
1. Buy a bottle of white out
2. You can either use up the white out so it's not to go to waste, or just take the brush and throw away the white out bottle. (did that make sense?)
3. Wipe the white out from the brush with a paper towel, and water it a little bit so that there isn't any white out left on the brush

You have your Ombre brush! Wasn't this easy?! See, you could do it with a makeup sponge, but those come in packs that actually cost a lot! White out only costs $1!  What would you rather buy?

Well, I hope you liked this DIY! I've tried the ombre effect with each tool, and I thought the DIY'd tool worked better si…
