DIY hair bows !

Hey everyone ! This is a tutorial on how to make your own hair bows :)

Things you will need: 
- Fabric of your choice
- Scissors
- A hair clip of your choice . (I used an alligator clip)
- A ruler 
- A hot glue gun

1. Firstly cut a (width)21cm x (length) 44cm strip from your fabric .
2. Fold your width ways 3 times and glue after each fold to secure, your width of the fabric should now be 7cm. This is going to make our bow more thick and sturdy. 

3. Now fold the fabric length ways 3 times or fit it to however big you want your now to be and glue between each strip. I made mine 11 cm. make sure that the end of the strip is glued to the middle.
4. Cut a 1 cm thick strip from the left over fabric. It can be along as you wish.

5. Scrunch the middle of the fabric to create the now shape. There should be 3 folds on one side and 2 on the other . Glue In between each fold to secure .

6. Wrap the thin strip you just made around the middle of the bow , glue it down once your happy with how secure it is. Make sure you glue it to the back of the now. (This should be the side with 3 folds)
7. Glue the back of your clip to the back of the bow. 

And your done !!!

Urban Decay ; Ocho Locho 2 reveiw!

Hey everyone !

I recently picked up the Ocho Locho 2 eyeliner set from urban decay and OMG they are amazing ! The eyeliners are so creamy and pigmented, they don't pull on your eyes at all when your applying them and you get an even line straight away. Also, since they're long lasting, they don't smudge ! And they will still be there when you go to take of your makeup at night time.  The colour range in the set is great, they have everything from nice neutrals to amazing fun colours. Most of the shades have shimmer or glitter in them besides 2 mattes.
In the set you get 8 colours, they are ;
Twice baked - a rich brown satin with gold micro glitter
Roach - a deep copper brown with shimmer 
Crave - a dark brown/black matte
Perversion -  the blackest matte 
Tornado -  a dark eggplant pearl
Ultraviolet - a bright blue/violet with shimmer 
Deep end -  a bright metallic peacock blue 
Mars -a bright metallic green with shimmer 
From top to bottom : twice baked, roach,crave, perversion, tornado , ultraviolet , deep end, mars .

And you even get the grindhouse sharpener!
With UD liners selling at $19 each, this set is such great value for $69 , your basically paying for around 3 eyeliners and getting 4 plus the grindhouse for free ! Overall it's a $162 value and I honestly think its worth it :)
