For those of you who know me well probably saw the make-up and thought “Is she really going to attempt to create her own make-up?!”. I thought about it, but realized I should chillax on my crazy CIY ideas!
So, I decided the shoes would be a perfect (and easy) CIY to do. I have two pairs of nude pumps I purchased from Target. I love the heel height, which is why I own two pairs. I wore the first pair into the ground, but felt bad getting rid of them. I pulled them out and thought a little paint here and a little paint there, my shoes would be back in action!Photo credit: Right: JCrew
– Pair of nude pumps
– Black glossy spray paint
– Gold paint (optional if you want a gold detail on the toe of your pump)
– Painter’s tape
Step 1: Place a strip of painter’s tape over the toes of both your shoes. I went about an inch and a 1/4 from the tip of my pump. Rip the tape in the middle to separate the shoes from one another.
Step 2: Start taping the soles of your shoes.
Step 3: Make sure you really press down on your tape. If you have gaps, the paint will get where you don’t want it.
Step 4: Tape the rest of your shoe where you do not want paint. I know I am not good at being neat, so I figured I would tape the whole stinkin’ shoe!
Step 5: Spray the tips of your shoes black.
Step 6: Spray paint your heels.
Let your shoes dry.
Step 7: If you want gold detail on your shoe, remove the tape on the top of your shoe and place another strip of tape just a little bit above the black to create a thin line. Paint the thin line gold. Let dry.
