So… It’s been a while since I last shared some beauty secrets, but no worries, I haven’t forgotten my promise and I’m thrilled I finally found the time for the 3rd beauty tutorial!
You’ve probably figured out by now, that I’m the kind of girl that prefers her hair up, say 90% of the time! I mean, what can I say, it’s quick and most importantly keeps my hair out of my way when I run around at yet another crazy day… So, for this tutorial, I’ll share with you the tips and tricks from my beauty experts (read more about the A-List Girls here & here), for both hair – how to perfect the bun?! And make up -how to achieve that perfectly drawn eyeliner?!
For the BUN, the secret is AIR. You didn’t see that one coming ha? The trick is, after you pull your hair into a high pony-tail, “fluf-up” the hair with air, while your head is up-side down. And THEN when it’s all airy and much more full looking, you gently twist your hair in a bun and secure it with boby-pins in a discreet way… You see, I was always tightening it too much…
About the Make-Up… Most make-up artists I worked with in the past month will testify that I’ve been absolutely obsessed with the black eye-liner! I mean, it’s such an iconic look and let’s face it- quite flattering for most gals out there.
So when I asked Angela what product does she use to get the perfect line, she said it’s actually a combination of two- both gel and liquid. First, to create the general shape you apply the gel liner (with a special pointy brush, you can get either at Sephora or practically in every pharmacy) and later you frame it with the more precise liquid liner. And for us beginners there’s also the correction phase… Nothing to be ashamed of! Sometimes even the most experiences make-up artists use the Q-tip to perfect and correct!
As for the bright lip- in case you were wandering- we used Impassioned by MAC.
Hope you like the end-result!
