DIY Metallic Lips Tutorial

Hey dolls! Here is a tutorial I made a while ago for a way to DIY the metallic liquid lipsticks I am seeing everywhere recently! It isn’t too hard, and the best part is that you can do any color combination that you want. This one is for a dark blue with silver over it, but I also did a dark nude with gold highlighter on top and a dark greyish color with pink highlighter over it! I would dig it with a bronze color for fall (how is already fall?!).

Hope you liked it! XO

Three four and five strand braids tutorial

 

A three-fer?! I wanted to do a tutorial on just a three strand braid, but figured I would throw in the four and five stranders too! They do get more complicated but just try to think of it as only the outside two strands moving and doing a lot of over unders (anyone want to count how many times I say over or under?……)

Three strand: 0:25
Four strand: 1:12
Five strand: 2:50

Fishtail Braid and Twist Half Up Tutorial

How feminine and pretty is this style? I curled my hair beforehand (using this tutorial for tighter curls or this for looser waves) which I think adds a lot to the mermaidy-ness of it, but the fishtail and twist make it like the prettiest prom or wedding style ever. I feel like if I want a hairstyle that everyone is always impressed with, I always go for a dutch fishtail… It is so funny how big this braid looks but before I pull it apart it is like the tiniest thing. Do you guys pull all of your braids apart?

Hi loves! This weeks tutorial is for an understated makeup look (does that mean boring? MAYBE…..) that would be perfect for prom or graduation or whatever formal events you have coming up. I know I would have never been able to do a crazy look in high school or even college and using the tape makes doing your eye make up sooo much easier so I hope you like it and give it a try! I realized after the fact that I didn’t explain the tape that much so if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask – it really makes it so much easier to get a crisp line and a nice flicked cat eye (just make sure to really push the tape down so none of powder or liner can get underneath it)!

The craziest most colorful look I have ever worn – and I am totally digging it! When I started doing this look I was only going to use pink and orange but when the other colors are right in front of you why not use them all! I always used to say that my favorite color was rainbow because it was too hard to pick just one color – they are all beautiful! Orange totally used to be my favorite color which is such a shocker because I am all about the blues and purples now! I took this test online once about if you are a super see-er or something and it was so much fun. The colors were all lined up next to each other and you had to count how many different colors you could decipher and of course I made everyone in my family do it because isn’t that what you do with online quizzes? It was interesting to see how people see color differently – my sister counted a different number than me!

Either way, I love color and am happy I have started to incorporate it more into my makeup looks now that I got this Urban Decay electric palette! When it first came in the mail I opened the box to find a warning saying that some of the colors were not suitable to put on your face and I was so confused… I used them all anyways (because I paid for it, I better be able to get the most out of it!) and it turns out that the red tones – pink orange red – kinda stain your eyelid a little bit for like a day and then it goes away.. Which I am fine with but I do feel a little worried the next morning when I wake up and look in the mirror and it looks like I had an allergic reaction! Thank goodness for coverup ;)

Hope you guys like this tutorial! XO
