Christmas is one of the top stressful times of the year. What was meant to be a jolly, joyous holiday with family and friends has become a rat race for gifts, decorations, party planning, it’s insane! The Holiday scramble can cause you to pull your hair out, or crumble in your chair and hope anyone else will take care of everything.
Along came a Christmas miracle by the name of Wengie, ready to renew your Christmas spirit with a few ‘do it yourself’ life hacks. Colorful and fun, Wengie gives easy lessons on brightening the holiday cheer that is enjoyable for the whole family to do together.
Fascinating ways to re-purpose items in your home, making them fanciful and festive is her main goal. A wonderful Wengie example is a do it yourself snow globe. Grab an empty mason jar, glue your chosen decoration to the bottom of the lid, place fake snow into the jar, finally screw the lid back. Flip it over so it is standing on the lid, and now we have a winter wonderland in a bottle. A jar that would otherwise have been thrown away is now a piece of art that can be pulled out every Christmas.
Extra diapers lying around? Let Wengie show everyone how to turn those extra nappies into safe instant snow. Ready for a festive celebration? Turn disposable red solo cups into something fun for your guests with Wengie’s simple and adorable Santa sash. Inexpensive, easy, your party guests will be talking about them for days. Best of all, you will not need to do the dishes.
While Wengie, in her makeup tutorial, admits she does not wear makeup every day, she shows her Youtube followers her go-to, simple trick to applying makeup that maintains a natural look, yet can also be glammed up for a night out on the town.
Wengie’s everyday look is completed with five beauty products and uses one color palette. Using Kate Von D’s light contour color palette, Wengie can complete a look that utilizes eyeshadow, face framing, highlighting, blending, contouring, and a smooth transition of colors within the palette.
Wengie begins by massaging her face with moisturizer to increase circulation and to get rid of any bloating and puffiness. She then blends her moisturizer with foundation to make the product spread easier and to create a lighter foundation. She uses her favorite tool in makeup application, a beauty blender, which aids in spreading her beauty products evenly.
Wengie recommends dressing up your natural lashes with your favorite mascara if you are going for a natural look. She also shows her followers her favorite false eyelashes from Tiny Minx, for those women looking for volume in their lashes.
Along with some liquid eyeliner, blush, and a nude coral lipstick, she completes the look. One tip she recommends for a matching blush is to use the same lipstick both on the lips and also to dab on the cheeks for a blush that does not compete with your lip color.
