Okay. So I live in "L.A.", and it poured rain ALL day yesterday. I started off my morning normally and straightened my hair. This was an obvious mistake. The entire day I was hiding under my umbrella and my hood to attempt to keep my hair straight.
Here is what I wish I would have done.
Hair. Start off by taking a shower the night before. You want to use a deep conditioner because that will keep your hair from frizzing in the high humidity. Once you are out, you will want to quickly brush out and part your hair. I would recommend a deep side part. Then take a hair gel or - my personal favorite - spray gel. You will want to scrunch your hair together into a messy bun. Let it dry in the bun, and then carefully, let it out. Apply the gel all over the hair and a very fine amount onto the top of your head. Don't use too much or it might look greasy! Then braid your hair into one long braid with the gel intact. And you are done!
Clothes. First of all, a day when it rains is NOT a day when you should be wearing shorts or a skirt. Wear blue jeans that are dark wash, because that way when they get wet, the water won't show. Wear whatever kind of shirt you want and try to wear some sort of sweatshirt or coat with a hood. This will save you in the end.
Makeup. I recommend wearing a tinted moisturizer instead of powder or liquid foundation, because that will not droop off your face if it gets wet. Of course wear waterproof mascara and eyeliner, and wear cream shadows instead of powder. But make sure that you use an eyeshadow primer so that the shadows don't end up creasing. Try something daring like a red or berry lip. That will immediately brighten the day.
Accessories. As far as shoes and accessories go, wear shoes that you don't really care about or rain boots. The only accessory you might need is a scarf, and an umbrella which is a must-have!
That is really it, so if you have any other questions, or comments on this then don't be afraid to leave them in the comments section or find a way to contact me through the "Contact Me" page on my official website.
So yesterday morning, I woke up and was getting ready to start to re-flat iron my hair from the day before, and I decided to curl the hair from the ear down!
I curled the entire head, and it ended up looking hideous! I think that it had something to do with the way that the hair was parted... but I couldn't re-part it, because the hair was already curled!
I didn't have time to jump into the shower or re-flat iron it, so I had to think fast! I couldn't just leave my hair sitting on my shoulders like that ALL day!
So I quickly hair-sprayed and then ran my fingers through my hair making the curls a lot looser and bigger (because I have a pretty small curling iron).
Next I took a hair band and tied my hair into a side pony tail! This looked amazing! I got compliments from my friends all day that I looked really good (thank you to anyone who complimented me)!
I lasted pretty much all day without frizzing (even through PE)! The only thing that I would do differently, is that I would probably use a little bit more hair-spray, because the curls were starting to fall out by about noon.
I liked my hair so much that I took a bunch of pictures! Here is one of the pictures!
So lately I have been straightening my hair for school everyday! Normally, I don't style it, and I just wear it natural, but the other day I was going to shower, but my shower wasn't working, so I woke up in the morning before school, and my hair was all frizzy! What did I do? I turned on the flat iron! Another thing that I like about my new hair is that it makes it appear 2 or 3 inches longer!!!
I think that tomorrow, I am going to add a few curls! If there are any questions, then just comment or message me! Beside this are pictures!
Before I do the outfit for Saturday, I want to say a few things. The "15 Days of Hair" has been completed, which means that hair sections will be back in the outfit blogs, and Nail sections will be gone for the time being. Also, I got a ton of NEW makeup last night, so I will be doing a review on all of the products (Covergirl Cosmetics) soon. The last thing that I want to talk about before I do the blog, is that there is a new contest in the "Contests" page. This one is for a totally free, brand new iDog! Many people have been entering! One person entered 11 times (this is the person who won the last contest)! Anyone can win! Oh, and the more times you enter, the greater chance you have of winning. Enter as many times as you want! Oh, and most people have been entering through the contact form at the bottom of the "Home" page. Now I will do the outfit.
Tomorrow is a Saturday, and I am going to do a "weekend" look. I will be going to see a movie with one of my friends, and I want to look: relaxed, pretty, boho, funky, sophisticated, and still casual. You will need a pair of skinny jeans. These can be: acid wash, dark wash, black, jeggings, or just regular blue jeans! You will need to have a large tee- shirt. My tee- shirt will be saying: "LOVE YOUR EARTH". You will also need to have a sweater of sweatshirt, because it can still get cold, even though it is summer!
Accessories. To make my look a bit more boho, I will be wearing a bunch of bangles and bracelets on one of my wrists. I might also wear a silky scarf which will make me look a bit more relaxed.
Shoes. I will be wearing a pair of Converse. Any color is okay, because Converse themselves are totally relaxed, so the color does not matter!
Makeup. I really want to try out my new products, so all of the products will be incorporated in the makeup. You will need to first cleanse your face, and then apply concealer to all places that need it. Next, apply foundation or powder. I will be using a tinted moisturizer which is also okay. Afterwards, you will need to put on some very light brown eyeshadow. This will look natural, but still give you some color. Then, curl your eyelashes. Next, apply some: brown, black-brown, or clear mascara. The mascara should be the volumizing kind, not the lengthening type. Afterwards, apply liquid eyeliner to the top part of your eyes. Then, apply pencil eyeliner to the bottom part of your eyes. Next, apply some blush to add a bit of rosiness to your cheeks. Afterwards, put some chapstichk on your lips (Softlips is okay too). Lastly, dab on some lip gloss, and your makeup is done!
Hair. For hair, you will need to take a shower, and then either blow dry your hair straight, or use a flat iron. After that, make a side part. The straight hair will make you look relaxed, and the side part will make you look sophisticated!
Questions. I know that this has been a long blog, so there will have to be some questions! If you do have questions, then either: facebook, twitter, email, comment, fill out the contact form on the home page, or aim me!
Tomorrow is Friday, and for me...there are only two weeks left in school! Woo hoo! Well, anyways, I am going to be doing a "Flirty Friday" look! Thank you alliteration! Anyways, you will need a pair of darkwash skinny jeans, or just pants in general! You will need a white fitted tee-shirt, and a cropped black blazer. This will make you look more mysterious! You can wear a skirt if you really want to boost the flirtatiousness!
Accessories. For accessories, you will need a bunch of bangles, and a necklace that will be used as a centerpiece. This is all, unless you absolutely want to add something else.
Shoes. I think that you should wear a pair of tennis shoes, like Converse to edge up your look. Plus, if you are wearing a skirt, then you can wear a pair of: grey, black, or brown boots.
Makeup. To boost the flirty factor, you should wear some volume mascara. You will need some brown eyeshadow, and black eyeliner in pencil form. Use concealer to cover up and acne spots, and your makeup can be finished with a touch of lipgloss.
Hair. For hair, you should either curl it, or straighten it a lot. Flirting only works if you go to extremes, so either do a lot of curling, or a lot of flat ironing!
Questions. If you have any questions, then just comment. Also, if you need any alternatives to anything that was included in this look, then just comment, twitter, or email. The twitter and email links are on the "Home" page.
Tomorrow is a Thursday, and I am studying really hard for a science test, and it is tomorrow. The look is going to be inspired by all of my studying. You should dress comfortably but still including fashion in your choices. For pants, you should wear a pair of blue jeans. They do not have to be skinny jeans - but make sure that you are not wearing flare jeans (that would just look stupid)! For a shirt, I think that you should go through all of your black colored shirts (a block colored shirt is a shirt that is all one color), and you should pick the shirt that is the most flattering on your body. The block colored shirt will give you a boost of confidence, without making you sit uncomfortably during class or work. To make your outfit more relaxed, add your favorite sweatshirt, and you will just feel absolutely great the entire day!
Accessories. For accessories, I just recommend wearing your favorite necklace, while also wearing a pretty scarf. This will add simplicity - which guys like, and also give you the glow that you are looking for.
Shoes. For your shoes. We are going to do another comfy thing with shoes. You should wear your favorite school shoes. You can wear a pair of Converse, or some black flats! The shoes are absolutely your choice (don't make them too fancy, though).
Makeup. For makeup, add some mineral foundation, a bit of black brown mascara, and some black eyeliner. Dab on some lipgloss, and you will have a simple, clean, classic look, and you can be sure that it won't come off too easily! This is makeup that you will feel comfortable in ,and still make you feel confident!
Hair. This is going to be something that I never do. But I am going to give you the simplest hair ever! The reason that I am doing this, is because the day before a test is going to be in need of some extra sleep, so with simple hair, you will not have to get up too early, and maybe even sleep a half an hour later than you normally sleep on school days (I know that is what I am going to do)! So, you will wake up. Brush through your hair, and you will put it up into a simple high ponytail. Hairspray your hair to make sure that you have no stray hairs, and can concentrate on school or work.
Questions. If you have any questions on this look, or any upcoming look requests, then just email, twitter, or comment. The addresses to twitter and email are on the home page.
Tomorrow is a Wednesday, and we are going to do another goody goody two shoes look. For clothes, you will need a pair of skinny jeans. There should be no holes in the jeans. You should also have a bright colored shirt to add to the innocent vibe. You will need a knit sweater to make the jeans look more feminine.
Accessories. For accessories, all that you will need is a headband. The headband will make you look more perfect, which is what we are aiming at!
Shoes. For shoes, you should wear a pair of black shoes. Converse will be best, but if you don't have Converse, then I suggest wearing Nikes or Sketchers.
Makeup. For makeup, you should wear purple eyeshadow, and some lengthening mascara. This will make you look so innocent, that you will look like a puppy (good thing). You will also need to wear some foundation, to even out your skin tones and colors.
Hair. For hair, you will need to curl it a lot, and then put your hair in a ponytail, this will make you look girly ad like a goody goody.
Questions, if you have any questions, then just comment, and I will reply tomorrow. Have fun with this look!
Tomorrow is a Tuesday, and I want this look to be more quirky than all of the other Tuesdays that I have posted here on my website. So for the clothes, you are going to need a white or grey top of any kind. Over the top, you should wear any yellow: sweater, jacket, knit sweater, parka, wind breaker, sweat shirt, turtle neck, or anything else yell ow that you have. You should wear a skirt. The skirt should be a uniform skirt, or a suit skirt. The reason that the skirt needs to be that way, is because if the entire look is ALL quirky, then it will just be overwhelming, and make you look like a clown! If it is cold (it probably won't be) then just wear a pair of black leggings or tights.
Accessories. For accessories, you will need to have a headband that is completely NOT tomboyish. You will also need a choker or any other kind of not girly necklace.
Shoes. You should just wear any laced shoe as long as it is a little quirky looking. Converse are going to be the best shoe for this, because they are tomboyish and quirky at the same time, plus, they are stylish!
Makeup. For makeup, you are going to need to do a black and white smoky eye. You should mix the black and white. The black and white mixed will not turn grey, but into this really funky black color! You should paint your nails yellow, and then on top of the yellow, you should take a toothpick, and stick it into black nail polish, and make polka dots on each of your nails. I did it earlier today, and it was really, very easy! You are going to want a volumizing mascara in a black shade.
Hair. Because the look is going to be so quirky, your hair should be simple. If you have naturally curly hair, then straighten your hair. If you have naturally straight hair, then curl it! Have some fun, or there is absolutely NO point!
Questions. If you have any questions on anything...then just comment on this post, email, or twitter me. The email and twitter address are located on the home page...have fun, and if you can, take a picture of your nails and email it to me, I want to see how they turned out!
Tomorrow is a Monday, and most people are either off work, or school. I am not going to make you be a red white and blue freak, but a few of those colors are involved. Not red, but: brown, white, and blue. You will need to get hold of a white sun dress, if you don't have a white one, then I suggest just wearing any type of sun dress. Under the sun dress, you should wear a beige colored turtle neck. If you don't have a beige one, then: black, white, grey, or any color besides pink and green will be okay. Over the sun dress, you should wear navy blue knit sweater. If you don't happen to have a navy blue one, then you should just wear any other knit sweater that you can get your hands on.
Accessories. For accessories, you are going to need at least two sea shell necklaces. These will make your entire look turn instantly more relaxed. You will also need to wear a few assorted colored bangles.
Shoes. For shoes, you will need to wear a pear of beige colored anything. This is the first time - ever that I have given you a choice of pretty much - anything that you want for shoes! Have fun with the shoes, because the freedom thing, will probably never happen again...just kidding!
Makeup. For makeup, you will need to wear some brown-black mascara, (almost every brand of mascara sells it) the mascara can be either volumizing or lengthening. You will need a clear lip gloss, with some sort of lip color underneath, the Covergirl Outlast Lipstain, will work best for color. You will need light liquid foundation, if=t does not matter what brand, because almost every brand has liquid foundation. You should use concealer over any acne h=that is visible on your face. Add a little bit of liquid eyeliner, and your makeup is done!
Hair. For your hair, you either have the choice of pulling it back into a messy bun, or leaving it out in a messy hairdo. Once again, you are given freedom, use it wisely!
If you have any questions about this look, then just comment, email, or twitter me. All of the addresses are on the "Home" page. By the way, I rearranged my room a little bit, so the pictures of my looks, like the one to the right of this will be a bi different from the old ones.
Tomorrow is a Friday, and as everyone knows, Fridays are exciting and awesome. But at the same time, they are relaxed. For clothes, you will need a pair of skinny jeans (they can be denim, or they can be colored like red as an example). You should wear your favorite shirt. If you favorite shirt is simple, then don't wear it, you should wear something a little bit wacky! But at the same time, do not let the shirt clash with your jeans. If it is a bit cold, then you can wear a knit sweater over the wacky shirt, which will make your outfit look a bit more vintagey.
Accessories. You will need to wear a wacky or just odd necklace and your accessories will be done. If you want, you can wear a cool scarf.
Shoes. Because your look is already going to be so strange, I think that you should wear a pair of simple laces shoes. If you are going somewhere nice and want to get a bit more dressed up, then wear a pair of black flats.
Makeup. You should wear some black eyeliner (pencil or liquid), and a bit of black volume mascara. You will need a little blush and some purple eyeshadow. You will also need some lip color, use a Crayola if you know how.
Hair. Curl your hair as much as you can without making the curls look fake. You are going to want to make a deep side part. This will make your outfit look a bit more elegant.
If you have any questions or need any alternatives, then just comment, and I will reply ASAP (as soon as possible).
