Layla from Bellisima Lolita Makeup recreates the chic style of Kourtney Kardashian and gives her an avant garde makeover.
I love how chic and put together her style is, but it gets sort of boring because it's so consistent. You can count on her to be wearing the same look or variations of it. It's beautiful and it suits her well but I'd love to make her over to try something just a bit different.

DIY Donut Bow Shoe And Hair Clips!
Recreate the look with Melissa's Donut Bow Shoe & Hair Clips tutorial:
You can find almost everything in the bustling city of Tokyo, from a vast variety of craft supplies to good food. But one thing I love most about Tokyo is that everything is so bizarre (fashion, lifestyle, food, language) that it feels okay to do just about anything here... as long as it's not against the law. It's totally normal to walk around the city wearing your favorite anime character's outfit (complete with a magic wand if applicable!) but the locals find it strange to see someone eating a piece of bread while walking.
Come behind the scenes at Curious Pip. and tour Sarah's studio in Bristol.
It's a rather cosy little shoebox in the corner of our kitchen, yet it's part of my home and very much my domain. We're very lucky in that we have a rather spacious kitchen and I occupy one corner of it. It looks out onto the garden from large patio doors and gets lots of lovely sunlight.
Sian from The Makeup Honey recreates the look of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Hi Cut Out & Keep! I'm back again! Last time I was here I was a Beauty Superstar, this time I have been playing Cebrity Stylist and created a Buffy The Vampire Slayer themed look book. Buffy was a huge part of my childhood, I loved that she was a confident and powerful female within a terrifying world, she was strong but not afraid to show fear. Loyalty, love, friendship and acceptance are prominent themes in the Buffyverse, often teaching us that different is not always scary if you only give it a chance. Like Clem, Clem was amazing (the demon that used to babysit Dawn). Growing up with Buffy, I loved her style. Girly but practical, it is no coincidence that my wardrobe became full of skinny jeans, leather pants, floaty tops and boots. When I put this look book together, browsing through all the amazing tutorials on Cut Out & Keep I had so many flashbacks to different Buffy episodes. I hope you enjoy the look I put together and that you agree that it is something Buffy would definitely wear
