Tutorial Tuesday – Dramatic Winged Eyeliner

The trick to dramatic winged eyeliner is to use a liquid eyeliner and draw the outlines first.

Start at the inner corner of your eyelid and apply a thin line towards the outer corner. (you can fill in the space later).

Then create a small wing from the bottom, outer corner of your eye towards your temple.

Keep this small as the look will be dramatic without being a thick facial stripe.

Connect the top and bottom line with a point then fill in the space.

This is a beautiful look for a night out!

How To Choose The Right Hair Brush For You!

choosing-the-right-hair-brushThe right hair brush can dramatically affect the condition of your hair. Be sure to be working with the correct brush to get that marvelous hair you’re striving for because gorgeous hair is just a brush away.

Detangle

Hair is structurally weaker when wet, so rough brushing can cause snags and tears. Gently loosen your tangles with a brush that has widely spaced bristles designed to detangle wet hair.

Curl

If you want soft curls without using a curling iron, use a round brush with a ventilated metal, thermal, or ionic barrel. These barrels efficiently trap and circulate heat when you blow dry, plus you’ll cut drying time in half using the ventilated design. The Bio Ionic Round Wave Brush is great for creating curled or wavy hairstyles and looks.

Smooth

A flat, boar bristled paddle brush is perfect for smoothing hair after a blow dry. A flat paddle has a larger surface area designed to reach larger sections of your hair. The Macadamia Paddle Brush with Boar bristles is a quality hair brush that is gentle on the scalp. This brush will create a naturally smooth straight finish.

Straighten

You can blow dry all hair lengths and textures straight with a round brush. Choose metal, synthetic or natural bristles depending on your hair texture and condition. The longer your hair is, the larger the brushes diameter should be.

Style Long

A mixed bristle brush is best for long hair. The natural boar bristles polish the hair while the synthesize nylon ones gently grab and hold sections of your hair. Look for a brush with an air cushion, which allows the brush to glide over painful knots that could potentially break long locks.

Volumize

Vented brushes work wonders for volume! The open design evenly circulates air throughout your strands when you blow dry, resulting in a light, and bouncy finish with tons of movements.

Tease

Use a narrow brush with rows of densely packed bristles to backcomb your hair and smooth out the top layers.

Remember… “a hair on the head is worth two on the brush”

Quick Beauty Tip – No Mess Mascara Application

Next time someone wants to give you their unwanted business card, don’t decline or toss it! Keep a collection of business cards in your vanity for mascara application. Since mascara should be applied last as a finishing touch,  it often can create a smudgy mess. Avoid this by placing a business card right up against your lash line. Apply mascara as usual, only the excess makeup will smudge onto the card instead of your perfectly shadowed eyelids! quicktip-business-card-lashes

Get Her Look – Julianne Hough’s Top Knot

We see this look everywhere. When attending an elegant affair, but it is warm out or your dress calls for your hair to be pulled up from your shoulders and back from your face, try the top knot. We’ve seen this on celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Julianne Hough, Kelly Osbourne & more. Julliane Hough pairs this look with pinned back bangs. You can choose this option if you have bangs.

Start off with a french braid right in the middle of your head only going halfway to the crown & secure with a rubber band.

Then flip your whole head forward and grab it to make a high ponytail.

Hold the base of the ponytail and wrap the rest of your hair around as if you are going to make a bun. Doesn’t have to be perfect but make it symmetrical.

Quick Beauty Tip – How To Avoid Bubbly Manicures

quicktip-prevent-polish-bubblesToday’s quick beauty tip is more like 5 in 1! Follow these steps to avoid dreaded bubbles in your manicure forever! 1. Swipe your nails clean with nail polish remover even if your nails aren’t painted. This will give you a clean canvas to work with. 2. If you moisturize, be sure to wipe the nails down before painting. This is great for your skin, but can leave residue that leads to bubbles on your nail. 3. Stop shaking the bottle before use. If you feel the need, take the bottle between the palms of your hands and swipe them back and forth. 4 & 5. Keep your coats thin and resist the urge to put nails in front of a fan or dryer. You want to ensure that the each layer of polish dries at the same time. If the top layer dries before the first, you may create bubbles.

Enjoy your perfect mani!
