How to apply Festival Gems or Bindi..

Firstly remove from the outer packaging, take your time and be careful as Festival Gems and Bindis can be  delicate. You can either slide your fingernail under the Festival Gem or Bindi until it is completely loosened or use a pair of tweezers to loosen it.
All of our gems are self adhesive and are incredibly easy to place with a little practice. If you do not get it right, you can always peel them off and re-stick them several times.There really is no "correct" way to place them, it all depends on what you feel comfortable with. The two most popular ways are using tweezers and your fingers. When working with single Festival Gem or Bindi, finger placement is usually very easy and works well. There are of course exceptions. Using Tweezers can certainly help when placing very small bindi or when applying formal sets as you may achieve greater precision with them. You can reuse the gems by applying eyelash or cosmetic glitter fix glue on the backing.

How to Apply Metallic / Henna Temporary Tattoos..

You will be stunned by how quick and easy it is to apply your Temporary Tattoo with the help of a little water. 

Step 1: Clean and dry skin. You want to make sure your skin is clean, dry and free of any oils or the tattoo will not adhere. 

Step 2: Cut out the tattoo as close to the edge as possible (this is important later when you need to line it up). If you are applying a band that will be worn as a bracelet, anklet or arm band, trim the tattoo to size if it needs to be adjusted while the protective liner is still in place.

Step 3: Once it is properly trimmed, remove the clear top sheet.

Step 4: Place the tattoo face down on your skin and hold a wet cloth against it for about 30 seconds. Peel the paper aside then pat gently with the wet cloth. Fabulous! Be sure not to twist or stretch skin until the tattoo has had time to set (at least 5 minutes). Metallic Tattoos look best after they have had an hour or two to set into the skin.

Step 5. Party on and look amazing!
