How To SFX: Creating Gooey Burned Skin

Hey guys!

One of my most popular looks from last year’s 100 Days of Makeup Challenge was my Cordelia Foxx makeup look for my American Horror Story Week. I wanted to share how I achieved the look because it was pretty easy and pretty effective. I’m preparing for my next attempt at the 100 Days of Makeup Challenge so I thought it was a good time to revisit some of my past looks and explain how I achieved them. I do want to say I’m no makeup artist, I’m not a professional. I just like playing with makeup. With that said, I hope that you enjoy the post!

Valentine’s Day: How to Celebrate it!

Hey guys!

Whether you’ve got a partner or not, celebrating Valentine’s Day can be a really fun time and there is a tonne of stuff that you can do. Whether you’re exchanging gifts with friends or loved ones, going out to dinner or just sending V-Day Card memes on social media, everyone seems to end up celebrating somehow. I really don’t subscribe to the notion that people should be anti-Valentine’s Day. Its a day to celebrate love, in whatever form that comes in. Today I wanted to share how I plan on celebrating it and how you might like to! I hope that you enjoy!

How to Make a Z-Palette for under $10!

Hey guys!

Have you ever thought that z-palettes are a little pricey? Or noticed that they’re hardly ever in stock? Well I have a cheap little solution for all of your lone pan problems! I needed a new palette because I wanted to take my Inglot eyeshadows out of their terrible and chunky palettes that Inglot sells and put them in a more lightweight palette so I could get more use out of the shades that I’d bought. This was totally inspired by Jamballdonut’s video, which really helped me out and if you want to see a master at work, check out her easy to follow video!

I hope that you enjoy!

Star Wars Rey Hair Tutorial

Hey guys!

It has been a while since I’ve done a hair tutorial and I saw Star Wars last week and I just had to do a hair tutorial for Rey. This post will be spoiler free so if you’re still one of the few people who is yet to see it and wants to see it, this is a safe post. I really enjoyed the movie and I loved sitting in the cinema for the first time experiencing a new Star Wars release. I love Rey’s character and I am excited to see where the plot takes her! This look is very simple and there are a few different ways to achieve this look.

You’ll want to start off with freshly brushed hair. My hair goes a bit like an afro when I brush it but seeing as it will all be put back into buns, there’s no issue from this brush-fro business. You’ll also need to grab four hair ties and a few bobby pins, if necessary.

Next, you’ll want to grab your fringe section of your hair. If you don’t have a fringe, you can grab the section of hair on your head here a fringe would be.

You’ll then want to take one hair tie and tie it towards the back of your head like a little ponytail.

You’ll then want to think about separating your hair into three even sections. You can tie those off now if that will make things easier.

You will want to make a ponytail but when you go to loop the tie around the last time, don’t pull the hair all the way through. Just make a little bun bump and leave the rest of the hair hanging. Here is where you have some options.

For Rey’s buns, you can loop the excess hair around the hair band so that it can be concealed. This works best if you have short hair because it will wrap around easily and won’t look bulky. Longer hair tends to have a second bun effect when you wrap the excess hair around so I would recommend skipping it if it loses the bun effect from wrapping.

If you leave the hanging hair, add it to the next ponytail when you’re grabbing the next section and repeat the previous step.

You’ll want to do the same as the last step, either adding excess hair or wrapping it, when making the last bun.

With the left over excess hair, push the hair up under the bun, by the hair tie, into a little hole that you make with your fingers. This way, there is no left over hair. Alternatively, you wrap the excess hair around.

In the end, you hair should look a little something like this! Now you’re ready to take on the galaxy!
