beauty tricks

I have been really getting into experimenting with beauty and hair. I have a whole box of makeup and hair ideas that I have ripped out from Seventeen and Teen Vogue magazine now. Here are some pics of my favorite makeup and hair-dos I created! Oh, since we are on the subject of hair, I am looking for a non-expensive, but good quailty curling iron, any suggestions?
A lot of people ask if I crimped my hair when it is all wavy like this, but actually what I do is put 5 braids in my hair and sleep on it. When I wake up I take out the braids and wa-la, there are waves!


This is another way I curl my hair, I call is pincurling. I take a one inch section of my hair, twist it, put it in a mini bun, and then bobby pin it.


Okay, so I didn't paint my nails this color, a makeup artist at one of my photoshoots did. Nonetheless, I thought they were cool so I decided to show them to you. (yes, I am listening to Justin Bieber....)



Me in pigtails. For makeup, I tried wearing all different shades of pink for my eyes, cheeks, and lips.

My attempt at a side messy ponytail.

You look awesome. It's so much fun to play around with make-up and jazz. (I've always been to lazy to do much with my hair!)


Thanks so much for stopping by!
