Are you looking for a trendy hair style that will give you the best of both worlds and will take less than five minutes? (aren’t we all!) Well guess what, I found one! Today’s hair tutorial is quick, easy and very versatile: The Half Crown Braid! Follow the steps below to tackle this adorable ‘do’!
Steps 1, 2, & 3: Start by taking a 1-2 inch section of hair on one side of your head (a little above your ear). Split that section into 3 pieces and start making a traditional (plait) braid.

Want a dramatic eye, but don’t want to bother with eyeshadow? Try doing a winged liner look, but take it a little further….
I used Inglot gel liner in #77, and angled MAC brush #263. I love this liner because it’s the blackest I’ve ever used and waterproof. This is my favorite brush because it’s very precise, and the synthetic hairs give a smooth and thin application.
Step 1. Starting with a matte eye, use your synthetic angle brush with the tip pointing away from the eye, to lay down your first line.
Step 2. Go back to the line, and drag the liner across the entire lid to the inside of the eye. The bigger the better, dont be scared! It’ll feel weird but it’ll look beautiful! Connect with the front of the eye. (more…)

In order to “master” something, you need to take a little time to perfect what you’re going for. Quick makeups are great, but like anything, perfection takes time!
Step 1: Begin with naked, brushed brows.
Steps 2 & 3: Outline the shape you want with an eye liner brush. Fill in the outer part of the brow to give it a sharper arch with the same brush. (more…)
Step 1: The first step in any hairstyle involving a heat tool is to prep your hair. I used TRESemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray first, followed by a light misting of TRESemme Ultra Fine Mist Hair Spray. I find that prepping my hair with hairspray helps the curls to hold better. The secret to a classic wave hairstyle is a small barrel curling iron, a clip-less one that is. I will be using my Cortex 4 in 1 curling iron set with the smallest barrel which is a 1/2-1″. Now on to the fun part! (more…)
