Short Hair Style- flat iron curl

December 27, 2011

My first short hair style tutorial! It is so much easier with short hair for me. I wake up with an automatic style. For this look I decided to use a flat iron to curl.

1. Section hair
2. Grab a medium amount of hair and place the flat iron parallel to the floor .
3. With hair in the iron, you are going to flip the iron around “ribboning” the hair in the iron. The slower you ‘ribbon’ your hair the curlier the result

Try it out and play with the flat iron. Works great on long hair too!!

Purple Eye Liner

December 20, 2011

I normally do black eyeliner on my water line, but this morning I woke up wanting to do purple! I just got this purple eyeliner by Nabi at a local grocery store.  If you want to brighten up your daily makeup, try different colored liners on the bottom waterline! Purple also brings out the gold in your eyes!

Here is a Holiday look that will look good on anyone. I originally created this look for Halloween but its also a look that would be gorgeous to wear out to your work Holiday Parties this year.

I love old Hollywood, the makeup, fashion, Marilyn Monroe etc… Who wouldn’t want their hair and makeup to look like this especially for a formal night out. You can create this look in just a few minutes.

Enjoy and see you in the next video!

Beauty Tips

Limit Hand Sanitzers

December 17, 2011

Limit the use of hand sanitizers. I am guilty of this because I find sanitizers so convenient to use and kills a majority of germs.  But, it contains alcohol and that drys out your hands quickly, especially in winter weather.

Always have a moisturizer handy. In your purse, at work, your room, bathroom, car….
Choose a cream with glycerin to soften and urea to remove dead skin.

Chapped Lip Tip

December 16, 2011

Our unpredictable cold, windy, rainy weather often leads to chapped lips. Avoid “flavored” lip balms, it may increase irritation by licking your lips

Exfoliate your lips at night with a toothbrush, I like to use baby toothbrushes. I mix sugar and a little bit of olive or grapeseed oil to use for brushing my lips.

Short hair don’t care!

December 16, 2011

I have been bored with my hair lately. I couldnt’ decide if i wanted to color it or just cut it! And with having long hair, or below my shoulders, I wanted a hair cut that would be noticeable. So initially I shaved one side, I know, that’s been done but I wanted to do it anyway. I was happy with the result but still wasn’t satisfied completely.  I knew that deep down inside Ive been wanting to just cut off my hair…. I mean cut it off… and I love it!
I still am planning on coloring it and go a little shorter next time.

Hello Kitty Santa Nails

December 13, 2011

With my love for Hello Kitty, like most of you! I wanted to create a fun Hello Kitty Christmas inspired  nail art tutorial, so this is what I came up with. Red bows for your tips and a Hello Kitty wearing a Santa Claus hat. This is nne of my favorite nail designs I have created so far :)

What I used:

Salon Perfects nail polishes to create this design, you can only purchase these polishes at WalMart, you will also need a toothpick to outline.

I know that this picture may look hard to do but with the video below I made it SUPER simple to get this look.

Have a Wonderful Day!!!
