Later in September, I’m hosting a DIY Coaster Workshop at Left Field Brewery. Whenever I am crafting a new workshop, I do the DIY at home, first. Inspired by the Lise Watier Weekendend Palette, I created a few variations of coasters! They are easy to make at home, and I’ll be going over the techniques (and more) in depth at the workshop.
If you can’t make the workshop or want to give it a shot at home, these three techniques use products that I’ve picked up and swear by!
When I attended the Lise Watier holiday event back in July, they also had a beauty collection inspired by the Montreal skyline. With the Weekender palette, I was also sent some Annabelle Kohl liners, which inspired the handwritten writing, because what bold look doesn’t need some liner?
I used the DecoArt Glass Paint Marker in Black on a piece of $0.30 white ceramic tile from Lowes. The tile is 4×4″ and can be found at any home improvement centre! I simply used the market to write ‘Rose All Day’ on a tile.
Allow painted project to air cure approximately 8 hours. For a dishwasher-safe finish on oven-safe surfaces, place finished piece in a cool oven, set the temperature to 325°F, bake for 30 minutes, then cool with oven door partially open. Not for direct contact with food.
You can also use an oil-based Sharpie to achieve the same effect.
The Weekender palette (and the line in general) has this beautiful, unique marbled look to the packaging/case. That, and the beautifully pigmented colours of the shadows, inspired a pink marbled coaster to add a pop of colour.
The final coaster is inspired by the concept behind the Weekender collection.
“Take the time to slow down. Stay in bed on a Sunday, have breakfast in bed or spend your afternoon in a quaint café. Take your time and live the present moment. Escape the chaos of the outside world and enjoy a cup of coffee, under your bed sheets or in your most comfortable clothes.”
— David Vincent, International Makeup Artist
As an entrepreneur, and serial side hustler, I take my weekends seriously. We #Hustle hard throughout the week to take in a moment of peace on the weekends.
This coaster uses Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Chalkboard Black (specifically made for ceramics), which means that the #Hustle can be removed and replaced with something else. You could even write names in chalk on the coaster to remember whose belongs to who! I used a Sharpie Water-Based Paint Marker in White to write on the chalkboard!
The Final Look
I took the Weekender Palette, Kohl Waterline Matte Liners & the Weekender Rouge Gourmand Lipstick for a spin. As you know, beauty isn’t really my forte, but I’m really happy with how the look turned out – and I wish I had somewhere to go!
I used two of the liners, Blackest Black & Champagne. I started with the Champagne, lining my eye as I normally would, and then accented it with the Blackest Black. I think this worked really well as the Champagne helped to highlight my lids. They were both super creamy and easy to apply. As someone who has been using liquid liners for the last few years, this was a welcomed surprise!
For the palette, I used a variety of the shadows, mixing and blending to focus on a bit of a day time smokey eye. While I avoided the blue/grey colours, I’m excited to use them in the future! I tend to go towards browns/beiges because I feel like my hazel/green eyes pop with them! I used the Rouge Gourmand Lipstick from the Weekender collection to tie it all together.
What do you think of my first beauty look here on Florals & Teacups?!
