Beauty Fails

What is your biggest DIY failure? Please share so I can feel better about myself. Lol. This a judgement free zone. I’ve had some serious disasters, one of my worst ones being those Easter chick deviled eggs. I’ve had a few painting and repurposing mishaps too but so far I’ve been pretty lucky in the beauty department.

I feel so bad for these people but I just can’t help but laugh! Number 6 is why I get my eyebrows professionally dyed. One of the fails on here, rag curls, has worked for me but it was a long time ago. Numbers 1 and 14…I know that everything marbled is from the Devil! I tried that on Easter eggs once and stripped the finish off my table. (Geeze what is it with me and Easter?!) Lol. To all of you providing our entertainment, thanks for suffering so we can learn from your mistakes. I am eternally grateful. Just because fails are awesome – here are 34 more to make your day even better!

Diply: 16 Pinterest Beauty Fails That Are So Bad, They’re Good

White Teeth

I’ve led a sweet life. ‘Sweet’ as in too much sugar! My teeth have had a hard life. I should eat some more veggies (according to my dentist)! All that delicious, but less than healthy food, has left my pearly whites a little less than white. They need some help! This video from Mama Natural has the next thing in whitening products.

This is the most random way to whiten teeth. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen this DIY method before! I am a big fan of whitening strips but I might be willing to give this organic method a try. So what’s the secret to a brighter and whiter smile? Activated charcoal.

Life is short, you need to smile while you still have teeth; sparkling white teeth. A smile is the best makeup a girl can wear and according to Martin Charnin, ‘You’re never fully dressed without a smile.’

Here’s the video… Enjoy!

Nails

All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust. We all need a little magic in our lives from time to time and these nail designs are just that. Enchanting. All 16 are inspired by Disney and will take you back to place of wonder and excitement. Sign me up!

Diply has gathered all the best designs together in one place. Thanks guys! I’m so excited to feature this roundup but even more excited to try some of these designs out. I love the nails that all tell a story together. The first one is great! The picture isn’t complete unless you put your nails a certain way. The Princess one is the same. They are decapitated when not together. Lol. I’m not a fan of the ones that have things sticking off the nails or on the skin. It wouldn’t last long on me. Ariel’s tail? Good luck making that thing stay while chasing kids around an amusement park!

Do you think Walt and Mickey knew that their creation would change the world and impact generations of children (and adults)? Who knows? I’m just glad Mr. Disney was a dreamer and that we get to reap the benefits of his creativity and hard work. ‘Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever…’ Take a look at the ‘happiest place on earth’ being built. It’s amazing!

Diply: 15 Fashion Hacks That Every Girl Should Keep In Mind

Salt Nails

My nails are in need of something new. I’ve been using tape to make designs but it’s always fun to branch out. This YouTube video from RealAsianBeauty has something I have honestly never seen before. I bet this is a new one for a lot of you too!

These nails will start some fun conversations, all your peeps will want to know how you used regular salt to get a crazy textured manicure. I’m not sure if this technique is for me. I tend to peel my polish off when it chips and something textured like this would probably chip easily but who knows. All you need for this DIY is colored and clear polish and iodized salt. Let’s try!

Buzzfeed has a roundup with 22 other textured nail DIYs if the salt got you excited. The feathered ones look amazing. As do the spun sugar and raindrops. Love love love ‘em.

Here’s the video… Enjoy!

Diply: 15 Clever Tricks That Will Change Your Beauty Routine For The Better

Hair

I am determined to learn a new hairstyle or two this summer. I need something quick like the ponytail and simple like the claw clip but nicer than both of those. There are those fancy occasions, lol.

Buzzfeed has a fabulous roundup of simple tutorials that will leave you and your hair gorgeous. There is one catch… in order to get great hair you need great products. Sorry there is no way around it. You will need pins, clips, a comb, brush, hair bands, salt spray, hair spray, hair paste, texturizing finishing spray, and leave in conditioner. It’s nice to have these things on hand even though you don’t need them for every ‘do.’ Watch for sales! I am excited to try these. I love the half up hair wrap and I really want to try the bangin’ braid. The chignon too. They’re my fave.

The Small Things Blog is one of my favorites for hair tutorials. The tutorials are so easy follow and the styles are so pretty. You’ll love them!

Hairsyles

Ahhhh! These hairstyles are so beautiful! They are very creative and absolutely stunning. I wish I could have my hair done like this but they aren’t the most practical of styles and I would be afraid to move and mess up a hair masterpiece. Everyone of these creations would take forever to create. I don’t have that much time to sit still!

Do you think those are extensions used in # 14? I’m wondering… I love the rose (#18); it makes me think of springtime. # 8 is fabulous. It is such a stunning feminine french braid and I love how #15 tucks the braid in such a nice way. The braided bun tutorial is another one of my favorites.

The Small Things is one of my favorite places to go for easy hair tutorials. They are easy to follow and the results are stunning. You should spend a lot of time over there, experimenting with hair styles. The fold over braid is where you need to start. Find the tutorial here.

Beauty Hacks

I love these hacks with my whole heart! I am going to save them to my beauty arsenal and I know that they are going to come in handy someday. These are crazy brilliant! I had no idea that perfume could take off nail polish; did you? For that and other wonderful hacks check out the video! Swoon.

I use the lotion trick all the time! I can swear by the cornstarch dry shampoo too. Messy but effective. If you have dark hair, try adding some coco powder to get it to match your shade. (Worked for me!) Beauty hack win. I love the coconut oil for split end too. It’s always good to have around. I use coconut oil all the time! Even though it is a pain to clean after, try putting some in your next bath. Your skin will never be smoother!

These hacks are wonderful to have on hand in a pinch. Another thing that’s good to know is how to make your own beauty products (perfect for when you run out of it you are just looking to go all natural). Wellness Mama can help with that. There is everything from sunscreen to mascara. Check it out here.
