Liquid Lines

The one thing in my makeup bag that I can’t quite live without, besides mascara, is liquid eyeliner. Even though I have mastered that steady line after years of practice, the right tool makes all the difference. And after trying what seems like hundreds of versions, I’m so excited to have finally found a nearly perfect one: Eyeko’s Skinny Liquid Eyeliner. I love how easy it is to apply and that it’s highly pigmented and practically smudge proof. Is there a liquid eyeliner that you swear by? Do tell!

Repossi

After three generations, Repossi Joailliers continues to carry on it’s rich and traditional legacy with Gaia Repossi at the artistic helm of the company. Though she’s influenced the brand with modernity and youth, occasionally in collaboration with tastemakers like Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra and Vanessa Traina, the storied skill of ancient metalsmiths is still preserved in the jewelry.

DIY Embroidered Sunglasses

What do you do when the probability of scoring a pair of Ulyana Sergeenko‘s embroidered sunglasses is, at best, 1 in a million? Do it yourself, of course. Though I couldn’t replicate these folk-inspired sunnies at nearly the same degree (we’re talking couture after all), I was able to add just the right amount of embroidery for a similar effect. So, what do you say? Grab a pair of inexpensive sunglasses and let’s get stitchin’!

You’ll need:

  • a pair of sunglasses with plastic lenses
  • embroidery floss
  • hand held drill (I used a Dremel, last used here)
  • 3/64″ drill bit
  • thin needle
  • scissors
  • felt tip marker
  • nail polish remover
