Must Have Eyelashes!

We’ve all seen these insane eyelashes Chanel presented for their SS13 collection, which I believed sparked a fad of ridiculously long eyelashes already sported by stars like Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga!

And frankly…

I love long lashes!

Though it may sound a bit over dramatic, but I can truthfully say my life was changed forever the day I got my first eyelash curler.

Really. That’s how great they are.

I have naturally very long eyelashes, but you could only tell if you got up close.

Now with my lash curler, they stand straight up! Sometimes the top of my lashes tickle the skin below my eye brows!

Did I mention- I don’t put any mascara on?

Fake lashes are fun, but unnecessary. I recommend a lengthening serum, to grow out your lovely lashes, and then curl, curl, CURL!

After they have reached maximum length with your serum, curl your eyelashes.

I do the base of them, and I’m done. I don’t work my way up, though you may choose to do so, but I feel it takes away initial volume.

In order to do this, you must curl them for a looong time!

I curl mine for a slow seventy seconds per eye.

And squeeze hard!

The simple rules to follow?

1) The closer to the base of your lashes, the better.

2) The longer your curler is squeezed tight, the better.

3)The tighter you clench down on the curler, the better.

Easy right?

I’m sure you can’t wait to take part in this fantastic trend that has been here forever, but just so happens to be stirring again…

This is a link I for the eyelash curler I use. It works ah-mazing, WAY better than more expensive ones! Only three bucks at CVS. Come on. you can’t get better than that.

Super Easy Hair Bow Tutorial!

I did this with my best friend’s hair- she’s my model for every experimental hairstyle that involves long hair, since mine is too short to do anything with.

Anyway, I didn’t use this tutorial. But it’s so easy this way! I can’t believe I hadn’t googled it!

I’ll have to retry, but I guarentee this will work.

The only other thing I recommend is that if you have very heavy or thick hair, you may need more bobby pins so the sides of the bow won’t sag.

If your hair is very silky, put some hair spray type product in it. This will help it stay in and so you can sculpt your hair into the bow.

Last thing! You can also do this on the front of your head, in fact I like it better that way!

Here are some cool pictures of the fabulous hair bow trend:

If you are a more visual person, here’s a great tutorial I found that teches you two different ways!

Say Goodbye to your Flat Iron

Image

This hair (above) is SO in!

SO adorable!

SO fresh!

SO long, flat irons!

We already know the craze on lace, nude colored fabrics, and stripes, but alas, we are forgetting an important factor in a girl’s daily routine:

her hair.

I usually spend a LONG TIME on my hair. Usually. Today, I thought it might finally long enough to throw into a pony tail.

I was wrong. The result? Me messing with my hair ALL DAY.

Anyway

Textured hair is the best way to make a “WOW-ing” impression for the soon to come seasons.

That means-

no I am not kidding you-

bury your flat irons.

Have a funeral for your staighteners.

I don’t care, just test out textured locks!

And if you already have naturally curly, or wavy hair?

CONGRATS! I am really jealous of you!

To bad there’s no way I’ll ever get a perm…

Here’s some great products to help you achive the trendiest textures ever…

Kinky Curly custard is the best for natural, super duper curly men and women!

 

This is a sulfate free brand for naturals that want high quality frizz control!

 

 

This curling iron is about $40, and is recommended by instyle.com

But really, almost any curling iron works. This is for naturally straight hair!

If you curl your naturally curly hair, you’ll end up with something like this…

JUST KIDDING!

I’M JUST KIDDING!

Some curly/naturals actually do curl their hair to get perfect ringlet curls.
