DIY Colored Mascara How-To (2 Different Ways)

I really like colored mascara's! They are super fun! Especially for those summer days where you want to apply as little makeup as possible but you don't want it to be too "boring" or too "neutral".
But one problem I have with those, is that I use them too rarely, and so they dry out before I even get half way through the container :\
Sooo.. What wouldn't you just CREATE YOUR OWN! :D For one time only! And use any color you want every time?!
I have seen so many creative ways to create your own colored mascara or adding color to your lashes. Today I am going to show you two methods of my own :)
Hope you enjoy and try it out! (btw, if you do - add #makeupandartfreak to the photos of your look on Instagram! I would LOVE to see it!) :)

How To Fake A Tan Using Makeup

And not only.
I am going to show you what clothes, jewelry and nail polish you should wear to emphasize your light-spring-tan :)
I am also going to show you a few tricks I like to do with makeup, to look a little bit more tan.
I have never used self tanning treatments, although I want to try the St. Tropez brozning mouse sometime..
So if you don't like (or don't own) tanning lotions and stuff like that, and you want to look naturally tan, just watch the video at the bottom of this post :) And I am not telling you the things I do in the video, just by guessing. I am telling you stuff that really works! Things I do that make people go "Oh, you look kind of tan today!" or "Have you been at the beach lately or something??.."
