Quick Beauty Tip – Gloss Up

 

quicktip-lipglossHighlighting, not the neon kind (we know it’s finals time for many of you), is a crucial part of contouring and shading.

Highlighters should be close to the color of your skin with some shine. Those with lighter skin tones should go for pearly shades while those with darker tones should use warm, golden shades. It is meant to bring light back into your face, but don’t go overboard. The goal is for it to look like natural lighting.

Did you know that in a time of need your lip gloss can be used as a highlighter?

The color of the gloss depends on your skin tone but a pearly gloss is the one to use. Apply a small amount on your brow bones and cheekbones and blend. This is perfect for quick touch-ups.

Make your gloss multitask and share with us how it worked for you!

Stay beautiful!

Quick Beauty Tip – Almond-Shaped Eyes

quicktip-almondeyes

You will need a liquid liner or pencil liner and eyeshadow.

Use your liner starting from the center of the lash line and out. Make sure to make it thicker on the outer corners.

Following Amber Heard’s lead, use your shadow to reinforce the look. Concentrating the shadow on the outer corners will give the illusion of almond shaped eyes.

Add mascara to complete it and your eyes should appear brighter and alert.

When asked what you would like to improve about your smile, what comes to mind? Whiter teeth perhaps, brighter smile, straighter – the list can go on.

Teeth whitening procedures belong to the cosmetic arena of dentistry. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry a brighter smile reflects youthfulness, warmth, happiness and good health. In a survey they facilitated, 74% of adults felt that an unattractive smile hurt a person’s chances for being successful in their career.

TT-LaurenConrad-SideBraid

Her side braid is almost as famous as she is! Date night, shopping or coffee run, this ‘do’ is great for you!

You will need:

  • Hair elastic
  • Brush/Comb
  • Hairspray/Shine Mist

PREP: Decide on a part. This braid looks great with a deep side part but a center part works just as well. Comb/brush your hair after parting it to make sure it is tangle free.

STEP 1: Section off the front of your hair and separate it into three parts.

STEP 2: Braid backwards. This will be a lace braid, where you only add in hair from one side. As shown in the diagram, Bobby (from bobblyglam.com) adds hair to the section of hair farthest from the face.

STEP 3: Begin lowering the braid so that you create a curved shape.  When you curve it downward, you will continue with a three strand braid. Don’t add in anymore hair. Secure the ends with a hair elastic.

STEP 4: Comb through the rest of your hair and lightly mist a hairspray.

P.S. Before adding hairspray to your hair, feel free to use a curler to create easy curls in your hair after finishing the braid!

Stay beautiful!

Tutorial Tuesday – Cara Delevingne’s Braided Undercut

Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Aniston and Cara Delevingne – what do they all have in common? The braided undercut.

The undercut is a look that was very popular where hair on the side of your head is shaved off.

TT-Cara-Braided-Undercut

 

Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Cassie and many more went bold with the real undercut but for those more attached to their hair than others – the braided undercut is great for an alternative look.

Whether you’re going for a punk look, like Cara did in the 2013 MET Ball, this hairstyle is great for all outings. Beach day, date night, girls night out – you name it and you can use it.

We searched high and low for the best technique to recreate this hairstyle!

You will need:

  • Hair Spray
  • Bobby Pins
  • Hair Elastic
  • Hair Texturizer/Styling Pomade

Instructions:

Step 1: Use the arch of your eyebrow as a guide. You want to create a deep side part that aligns with your arch..

Step 2: Lightly spritz the side of your hair with the most hair with a water mist or texturizer. You can put it in a bun to help create waves and to keep it from interfering with your braid.

Step 3: The side with less hair is where the braided undercut will go. This section will have the braid begin from the temple to the crown and then straight down behind your ear. Apply a small amount of a styling pomade or paste to give it texture. This will allow your hair to be easier to work with.

Step 4: Make a horizontal french braid. Once you reach your ear, start angling it down. You want it to curve as in Cara Delevingne’s braid.

Step 5: When you reach the nape of your neck, tie the braided section with a hair elastic. For added security, use a bobby pin by sliding it in through the elastic and into your hair.

Step 6: Finish with a hair spray over the braided section. Let loose your bun, add a small amount of hair spray and scrunch with your hands.

P.S. Try to keep the braided undercut area smooth for  an even closer resemblance to a real undercut! It will add more edge to your look!

Rough texture makes this look versatile for anything so don’t fret if the side with the waves looks like you woke up from a nap.
