Smocks && Scissors

23 Aug

Well babydolls, the verdict is in… I love school! My first week was awesome! I jumped right into the curriculum and have been soaking it up like  a sponge. My first test was this past Wednesday and I scored 107%!!! *takes a bow* Thank you, thank you (lol)

I have started my haircutting lesson and already I’m snipping away! I tried my hand a graduated hair cut this past weekend and I must admit it turned out very well. My instructor evaluated it and agreed that it was very well shaped. I’ve posted pics below.

  • BH Cosmetics 120 color palette 1st edition
  • BH Cosmetics 10pc Brush set

I think that’s all of it… I think 😕 I could be wrong 😮 YIKES! ….But on to the business at hand

So today is Makeup Monday and I tried my hand at vlogging (video blogging) the application of my look…. it didn’t go too well. So I’m going to stick with the slide shows and music til I get it together on the vlogging.

This look was inspired by my babygirl Ivy (she is a cat). I found her under my car when she was just 6 weeks old. Someone had abandoned her in the dead of summer while it was scathing hot out (animal cruelty is NOT cool)!!!  She is one year old now and a true character! Ivy is a Siamese cat with crystal blue eyes and a chocolate mask. To say her look is exotic is an understatement. Sometimes her eyes change color depending on her mood and the lightening.

So here are my pics of my Ivy Eyes

Hope you enjoyed it Babydolls! I promise to work on my video technique so I can post a tutorial of what I’m doing (plz be patient). As always any questions or comments are welcomed.

Weekend Inspiration: Big Beautiful Lashes

28 Jun

Happy Monday Babydolls!!!! I hope that everyone had an eventful and fun weekend. I very much enjoyed mine AND I received some awesome inspiration!!! This week will be totally devoted to makeup. I’m mainly focusing on eyes and skin this week. I will also give tips on caring for your makeup brushes and other tools.

Today’s post is all about falsies (fake eye lashes). I love falsies because they add so much drama to the eyes and really make them *POP*. I love love LOVE strip lashes. They scream old school sass and femininity. Nothing like batting those baby browns to get what you want from the booski LOL. But seriously though Babydoll, lashes are a great way to spice up your look and it is relatively easy to apply them.

Lash set from Sephora

Here’s what you’ll need:

1. lashes (your choice of strip or individual)
2. glue ( using dark brown or black lash glue dries with no white flakes)
3. tweezers
4. manicure or hair scissors

If you are using strip lashes, my advice is to cut them in half to make application easier. You can even cut them in fourths but be careful with this method so that when you apply the lashes they don’t look jagged and uneven. Once you have cut your strips or opened the packaging on your individuals, you can begin applying them. Squeeze out a little glue and holding the lash with your tweezers, dip the weft end in the glue. Wait about 15 to 20 seconds; this allows the glue to become tacky and less runny. Ensure that you don’t apply too much glue; you will have trouble removing them. Apply the lashes as close to your natural lash line as you can get them. Hold them in place with the tweezers for 10 seconds to set and release. Keep applying lashes until you have achieved your desired fullness and look. Once you have finished applying lashes, follow with a few coats of your fav. mascara. Personally I dig (with a major passion) Chanel Exceptionnel Lash! It has a 6-sided brush that is to DIE for! I also love love love Dior Show. Whatever brand you decide to use is up to you. From here, you can let your imagination run wild! Experiment with eyeliner and create sexy  60’s cat eyes or get golden like the 70’s. To remove them, simply use a eye makeup remover.

Here are a few pics of my eyes after I used lashes.
