Tutorial Tuesday – Tousled Fishtail Braid

TT-fishtailtousleWe can’t help it. We are in love with fishtail braids this summer!

We wanted to update our fishtail braid tutorial. This summer, a side fishtail braid that has a messy look matches almost any outfit and feel.

You will need:

  • 1 Pony Tail
  • 1 Plastic/Rubber Elastic

Instructions:

Step 1: Start off with textured hair. Next day hair works best but you can also apply a hair texturizer. For our assistant, we did a side part and began the braid in the direction of the part.

Step 2: Add the elastic to keep the hair in one place.

Step 3: Split the hair into two sections with hair hands.

Step 4: Grab hair from one side of section 1. To give the fishtail look, grab the hair from the back of section 1.

Step 5: Cross over the hair grabbed in Step 4 to section 2 of your hair.

 

Step 6 & 7: Repeat but this time you will grab hair from the second section of your hair and cross it over to the first.

Step 8: Continue this process alternating from section 1 to section 2 until you are done. Tie the end of the braid with a ponytail.

Step 9: Cut the elastic carefully with scissors. Make sure to not cut strands of your hair!

Step 10: To add to the tousled look, pull lightly on the fishtail braid from top to bottom.

How did your fishtail braid turn out? Let us know in the comment section below!

Stay beautiful!

Tutorial Tuesday – Fishtail Twist

TT-fishtailtwistThis summer, we are a fan of all things braided for hairstyles. This one in particular is great for any situation – summer party, summer wedding (can you tell we are loving this for summer?).

NOTE: We suggest using clear elastics for a discreet look.

Instructions:

Step 1: Blow dry and straighten your hair. For a beachy look, add curls and waves.

Step 2: Take two sections above each ear and twist them backward.

Step 3: Once the two sections meet, secure the two strands with an elastic.

Step 4: Create a fishtail braid with the hair from the two twisted sections. To make sure the braid stays put, use a thin hair elastic at the end. (If you need a fishtail braid tutorial, follow these instructions.) Remove the first elastic.

Step 5: Spritz a shine spray and hairspray so your style lasts all night.

Tutorial Tuesday – Burn Relief

We recently tackled this summer’s bandit – sunburns – what it can cause. For serious burns that sting, try this remedy.

You will need:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water
  • 100% Pure Coconut Oil
  • Old T- Shirt
  • Spray Bottle/Washcloth

TT-burnrelief

Instructions:

Note: The apple cider portion can be done at any point during the day for pain relief. The oil portion should be done before bed.

Step 1: To address the pain, mix ¼ of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of cold water in a spray bottle or bowl. Shake the bottle or mix the two liquids really well.

Step 2: Spray it liberally over your sunburned skin. If using a washcloth, dampen the washcloth with the mixture and dab it on. Let it dry.

Step 3: After the apple cider vinegar and water mixture has dried, use your fingers to apply the coconut oil. The coconut oil will begin to melt as you rub it gently on your sunburned skin. Use a paper towel to catch the falling drops. The oil will help your skin heal but needs time for absorption, thus this should be done before bedtime. To avoid getting your bed sheets oiled up, wear an old t-shirt and/or old sweatpants to bed.

This DIY tutorial can be done daily until your skin recovers.

Remember to always apply SPF before sun exposure whether it be a run in the park, the beach or errands.

Stay beautiful!

Tutorial Tuesday – The Great Gatsby Mani

“The Great Gatsby” – a story of love, of Jazz, of America in the 1920s and you can’t forget style.

You will need:

  • Base Coat
  • Gold Nail Polish
  • Black Nail Polish
  • Striping Tape
  • Gold Beads or Gold Studs
  • Toothpicks

Instructions:

STEP 1: Make sure you begin with clean, bare nails. Apply the base coat. When dry, apply 1-2 coats of the gold nail polish. It should be dry to the touch before continuing. (Keep the amount of polish even.)

STEP 2: Use the striping tape to create the pattern as demonstrated. Don’t be afraid to get creative. Draw inspiration from the movie posters! Make sure the striping tape is properly attached to avoid the polish getting under it.

STEP 4: Depending on the type of nail polish you have, remove the striping tape quickly or after it has dried completely.

Tutorial Tuesday – Fix Broken Makeup

TT-fixbrokenmakeupMistakes happen when you’re rushing a work of art. The work of art in this scenario is you, the mistake is shattered makeup.

It becomes a tragedy whenever it is new makeup or your favorite one.

In the past, we have been guilty of throwing out broken compacts, eye shadows and blushes but now, we can save them, enjoy them and get our money’s worth!

You will need:

  • Alcohol –70% alcohol will work best for this tutorial but you can use rubbing alcohol as well
  • Makeup brush – eyeliner brush  or an eyebrow brush works great
  • Plastic wrap
  • Spatula
  • Dropper
  • Broken Makeup

Instructions:

Note: Steps 1 and 2 are optional but they have proven to have great results in terms of reshaping your makeup and making sure it looks uniform.

STEP 1: Wrap the broken makeup with the plastic wrap.

STEP 2: Use the spatula to break the makeup into smaller pieces as if you were turning it into a mineral powder.

STEP 3: Use the dropper to add alcohol. Don’t add too much or the makeup will take longer to dry. For bigger containers you will be using more than 8 full droppers.

STEP 4: Use the spatula to smooth over the wet makeup. This will bond the makeup together. It should be able to be reshaped. If you are having trouble, you may need to add more alcohol. (If you skipped steps 1 and 2, this step may be a little messier.)

STEP 5: Use the makeup brush to smooth the edges and clean it up.

STEP 6: Wait a few hours for it to dry and it’s as good as new.

There are concerns that alcohol may irritate your skin. The alcohol actually evaporates and should not change the composition of your makeup.

Tutorial Tuesday – Bold Brows Tutorial

Nothing is more expressive than the expressions coming from your face. Your eyes, mouth and eyebrows all contribute to expressing happiness, frustration and sadness. (Of course, this isn’t the full range of emotions we feel but just to name a few.)

Eyebrows are one of our favorite facial features. The ability to frame the face and the monumental change that freshly groomed brows can bring is astonishing. The shape, the length of your brow and the boldness can make a huge difference on your look.

Bold brows are a welcomed beauty statement and trend. We don’t mean for you to plaster pencil liner or brow shadows onto them, but we do suggest to go for defined and bold brows.

This bold brow tutorial walks you through the important tips of creating bold brows with a brow pencil without going overboard in the shading.

You will need:

  • Brow Pencil
  • Spoolie/Brush

(A two-in-one brow pencil liner will come in handy. i.e. TIGI Cosmetics Brow Pencil)

STEP 1: Begin with your natural brows. Make sure to tweeze stray hairs and brush brows with a spoolie.

STEP 2: Start underneath the eyebrow and create a fine line. You want to follow your eyebrow’s shape until the end of your brow.

STEP 3: Locate the highest point of your brow and connect the line to the line from STEP 2. Fill in that space.

STEP 4: Fill in the rest of the brow with light strokes. You don’t want to press down hard with the brow pencil.

STEP 5: To soften the look, brush through using an eyebrow brush or spoolie.

STEP 6: Repeat on the other brow and enjoy!

Stay beautiful!

Tutorial Tuesday – DIY Teeth Whitening

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-diyteethwhitening

Tooth whitening is suggested to be done by your dentist but there are also many home tooth whitening systems available. Even so, professional supervision for teeth whitening is still preferred to ensure safety and effectiveness.

When we are not able to do either of the above or prefer a cost-effective natural remedy, we turn to DIY tutoruials like this one! With toothpaste, water, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda you can begin to notice the difference in your smile within weeks.

Ingredients:

  • One Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • Small Amount Toothpaste
  • Half Teaspoon of Water
  • One Teaspoon of Hydrogen Peroxide

Materials:

  • Container
  • Spoon/Mixer
  • Toothbrush

Instructions:

STEP 1: Mix the baking soday, toothpaste, water and hydrogen peroxide in the small container. Make sure the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and look like a paste.

STEP 2: Apply to toothbrush and brush for about two minutes and rinse. We suggest doing this at the end of the day.

That’s it! Use the mixture once a week until you see the shade of whiteness you would like. Once it is achieved, use this teeth whitening method once a month to maintain that bright, white smile in full force.

Stay beautiful!
