Maybelline Sapphire Siren Tutorial




I am really loving Maybelline products right now. I feel that the quality is comparable to the more expensive brands and the pigments of their eyeshadow palettes are amazing! My latest purchase is the Sapphire Siren palette. After your eye shadow primer, when you apply the colors they are so true to color. Other shadow palettes will have a faded or dulled look when you apply them. But not this line of palettes. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and leave comments on what other tutorials you’d like to see or any feedback you have for me!

Summer 2012 trend: Braids!

One of my favorite summer 2012 trends is the classic braid. One of the things that I love about braids is that they are super easy, low maintenance and you can get creative with them.

Who wants to see some braid tutorials?

I will post a video showing different ways to wear a braid.

How to: Install Clip-In Hair Extensions

I absolutely love clip-in hair extensions. I can wear my short hair whenever I want and when I want to glam it up a bit I add in my clip-in hair extensions by Euronext Collection. I bought mine from Sally Beauty Supply. At the time they were on sale for about $90. The whole process only takes about 10 minutes for installation and styling. If I am curling my hair, it’ll take a little longer. The up-keep of the hair is super easy, just wash it like you normally would your own hair. It is Human hair, so you can wash it, dry it, curl it, flat iron it, color it, whatever you want! I think it’s a great investment and I encourage you to try clip-in hair extensions. They are a game changer! View my tutorial on how to install clip-in hair extensions. Wrk IT Girl!!!
