Tutorial| Holiday Makeup: Smoked Green

Hi beauty babes! Here’s another holiday look that would be perfect for any festive dinner or party!

This look is great for those of you who love smoky eyes or would like to try a non traditional smoky eye with color. You can totally rock this with a deep burgundy, wine or red lip to make it super festive but I decided to keep it pretty subtle yet different by pairing it with a gold nude lip.

ENJOY!

Tutorial| Holiday Makeup: Sugar Plum Gold

Hello my loves! So I decided to get an early head start on holiday looks (well I consider this to be early lol)

This look is quite sparkly with just a touch of color on the eyes. I made it super wearable by pairing it with a very simple nude lip and healthy glowing skin.

This is perfect for those of you who want a little holiday cheer in your look but nothing too overly dramatic and bold.

ENJOY!

Final Thoughts| Glam Angels Hair: Peruvian Straight & Brazilian Straight

Ok guys,  I’m back with my final review of my Glam Angels Hair install! 

I was contacted by Glam Angels Hair.

Availability: glamangelshair.com

Pricing: $75.00+ (per bundle)

What It Is: I was sent 3 bundles of their Peruvian Straight hair in the lengths 16″, 18″ and 20″. I was also sent a closure with the bundles and since their Peruvian hair did not come with a matching closure I selected their Brazilian Straight closure in 14″.

I’ve been wearing this hair for about 6 weeks now and I have to say I actually like it a lot.

Initially my biggest concern was that the closure and the bundles were 2 different textures and didn’t quite blend. This situation really only allows me to wear the hair curled since straightening the hair so that the textures blend takes so much time. Other than that I really love the feel and texture of the closure.

After about two weeks I  switched the closure from a side part to a middle part. I loved that the closure had enough parting space to switch things up every now and again.

I ended up finding a few  gray hairs through out the bundles after a few weeks of consistent wear. The hair and closure overall have a medium to borderline high luster (shine) which I don’t know how I feel about yet since I am more keen to low luster hair since it gives a more realistic look.

I’ve experienced very minimal tangling and shedding in the beginning , 1-3 strands at the most. When switching my closure from a side part to a middle part I accidentally ripped the closure and lost quite a bit of hair but after a day or two the excessive shedding stopped completely and returned to a very minimal shedding, however I am not a fan of the fact that every time I brush or comb the hair it  sheds.

I did experience quite a bit of tangling along the nape of my neck with the Peruvian hair, which seems to happen every time I wear the unit.

Overall , I’m pleased with the hair and like it a lot but I’m just not over the top in love with it.

My Halloween Makeup

I know I’m  late with this post but I still wanted to show you guys what I wore for my Halloween makeup. I really don’t know what I was trying to be but I guess you can call it a flower fairy…thing. Lol.

ENJOY!
