[Requested] Stylenanda Hair Bun

June 20, 2013
Hey guys!

Today I finally made the long awaited Stylenanda Hair Bun Tutorial! Here are some inspirational pictures I used to create this look.



I finally got myself to do it since I've been sporting this look quite often this summer. It's a great way to get hair out of your face, hide a bad hair cut *cough*guilty*cough*, or if you just didn't feel like washing your hair and you just want a way to hide the fact that you didn't and still look chic *cough*also guilty*cough*.

So let's get started!

All you really need is a hair tie
Bobby pins and headbands are optional.

1.  Start off with how your hair normally is or if you would like, you can curl it first.

 2. Put all your hair in a VERY high ponytail so that it sits right on top of your head.

 3. If you have a lot of hair or thick hair you can split it like me which makes it easier to put in a bun.
If you have less hair than me then you can skip this step.

 4. Take one side and twist it. It doesn't matter which direction you twist. 


5. With the section of hair that is twisted, twist it around the hair tie to create a little bun. 

6. When you are done wrapping it around, you can just tuck your hair into the hair tie like so.
If you have thinner hair than me and didn't split it in half then you are done!

 7. For those that split your hair like me, you just repeat what you did with the other section to this section.

8. Now you have a hair bun!

9. If you have a fringe like me, you can either bobby pin it back or just use a headband. 
I decided to use a headband.
NOW YOU ARE DONE!

  Usually, I like to style my fringe to cover my wide forehead, but for this tutorial I pulled it back.

Hope you guys liked this tutorial! 
Sorry that it took me so long to get to it, but doing hair tutorials is a lot harder than it looks especially since I'm doing everything by myself haha. 
But I am happy with the outcome.

My Beauty Diary Mask Review: Aloe

June 10, 2013
Today I will be reviewing one of the many My Beauty Masks I have. I bought my masks from this little shop in NYC last summer. I don't remember what it was called but I remember I posted pictures of my trip on this blog somewhere. You can buy these masks on eBay as well. That's what I'm planning to do when I used up all of my mask and figure out which I like best. When I do buy some, I'll tell you guys about it and link it.

Anyway, onward to the review! From the post title, you can tell I'll be reviewing the aloe one today.

I chose this one because it has all the things I was looking for in a mask and it matches my skin type which is dry.

If you are curious to see which suits your skin type and needs, check out the chart below!


This is how it looks like when you open it.
When I opened it, it was soaked with serum. It was a bit messy because it kept dripping every where. I would recommend taking it out at a sink.


The actual mask is pretty scary looking and huge! I was surprised that it was that big. I didn't know my face was that big haha.

I lost track of time when I had this mask on. I think I left it on for about a hour.

So did it do what it claimed?
  • Collagen ✓ 
    • Yes! My face felt firmer and tighter.
  • Moisturizing ✓ 
    • Yes! My face felt so hydrated because I had dry patches on my cheeks and after the mask they were gone.
  • Regenerating ✓
    • Yes! My face looked more radiant afterwards.
  • Removed dead skin ✓
    • Yes! Same reason as above.
  • Lighten pigmentation spots
    • Not sure. I don't think I have dark pigmentation so I didn't get to see if it worked.
  • Soft, smoother skin ✓
    • YES YES YES! My bf couldn't stop touching my face haha!
Hope this review helped! 
I have two other masks that I plan to make a review on so stay tune for those.

Gradient Fairy Nail Tutorial

June 04, 2013
Hello!
Today I am going to show you guys how to achieve these pretty gradient nails. The key is to be QUICK!

This tutorial was out of the blue. I just wanted to do something simple yet complicated-looking since I haven't done my nails in a long time.

These are the nail polishes I used.


1. Apply base coat if you desire. I didn't have any so I didn't apply it.

2. Take any color nail polish you like and apply it 1/2 to 2/3 of the way down.

3. This part is the tricky part. Apply the glitter nail polish of your choice preferably something that is similar to the colored polish you chose. You have to do this part quickly and from base to tip of the nail so the glitter nail polish and the color nail polish can blend together. Also, you have to apply fast enough to move the bigger glitters to your desired area. I usually try to concentrate on the tip to make it look more gradient. DO NOT WAIT FOR THE COLOR PART TO DRY. You have to estimate about how long you have to wait before it dries completely because each nail polish have a different drying time, consistency, and depends on how thick of a coat you put on. 

[Not pictured]
4. Apply a top coat so bigger glitters won't come off and it helps to smudge the color and glitters together for a more gradient look.

I made a collage of the steps since it was simple in case any of you guys want to save it for reference.


Hope you guys liked this tutorial! 
Here is a picture of the very first time I did gradient nails if you guys would like to compare.
