Voluminous Hair using Hot Rollers


Hey Guys!

A couple months ago I did a review on the BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium 12 Jumbo Roller Hair Setter and I decided that I would film a hair tutorial showing you exactly how I use and style my hair using the same set of hot rollers. This is such a quick and easy way to style your hair and it turns out great every time. I hope you guys find this tutorial helpful and definitely check out hot rollers if you have yet to try them since they are so fast and easy to use, you can't go wrong with purchasing a set. 


Also a little update.

I just got back from vacation and plan on getting back into writing more posts along with the videos I've been working on. Sorry I've been MIA, but I have big plans for my blog and YouTube channel this year and can't wait to share with you all the new products I have discovered. Hope you all had a great Christmas and are enjoying your holidays. This will be my last post until the new year. 

If you are looking for something different in terms of makeup to do for New Years, here is a colourful look that will be great to try for a new years eve party. 


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2012 Inspired Makeup Tutorial!



Hey Guys!
I'm sure many of you know, tonight airs the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show! Every year, Victoria's Secret puts on a show for the holidays with all the beautiful angels looking fabulous in lingerie, bras and panties. I've never actually watched one of the shows, but always have seen highlights and have checked out videos on hair and makeup tutorials from each years show. I love the "Victoria's Secret look" with big voluminous soft curls and natural, bronze, glowing makeup. The show always gets taped a month or so early so there are always lots of behind-the-scenes images floating around the internet prior to the show airing.




This year I decided to check out what the makeup was going to be and recreate a tutorial inspired from photos for you guys! I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I enjoyed filming it.

Less is More - Simple, Everyday Makeup

I've been loving this simple makeup look so much that I decided to update my homepage banner!
Hey Guys!
Lately I've been in a makeup rut, really busy and haven't had the time to experiment too much with my makeup. However, I've been loving this simple eye and face makeup and playing up my lips in a variety of different shades. Most of the time I don't even wear a blush, but I thought Tarina Tarantino Parasol blush would look really good with my lip combo. This takes me all of 5 minutes to do and with some corner lashes to accent my eyes, it is a beautiful, yet simple look. I really need to buy a full size of the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin because I've pretty much used every last drop of the sample I have. Has anyone tried Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden or Greed? I was thinking about picking up those as well when I purchase Sin. Let me know if you have used and like either of those!
